Configuring Offerings: Explained

To configure an offering for implementation, you opt into its functional areas and features that are applicable to your business operations. You start your opt-in configuration by enabling the offering. The offering and its functional areas are shown in a hierarchy to help you decide, step-by-step, what to opt into. When an offering is enabled, all functional areas and features representing core functionality of the offering are also automatically enabled. You decide which of the optional functional areas and features to opt into by specifically enabling them.

After the initial implementation of the offering, if you must change the opt-in configuration to enable additional functional areas or features at a later time, use the same procedure to enable them as well.

In some cases, opt-in selection of a functional area or a feature may be locked once enabled due to the business operation it represents and its selection cannot be changed.

Opting into New Features After Upgrade: Explained

New functional areas and features for an offering you implemented are often introduced in the later revisions of Oracle Applications Cloud. You can use the New Features work area to explore and learn about what has been introduced in the last upgrade of your applications and decide whether to opt into them.

You can review the new functional areas and features of all your enabled offerings or focus on only one of them. For each functional area or feature, you can view its opt-in status, check whether it requires setup, and access additional help topics to learn more details.
