2 Account Reconciliation Home

After you create the business process, the Home page is the launch point for accessing your business process tasks.

When you first access Account Reconciliation, Home provides easy access to features. The interface provides an intuitive user experience and an overview for quick access to commonly used functions.

Depending on your role, you may see all or only some of these icons.

You can change the general look and feel of your Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud environment on theAppearance under Tools. On the Appearance page, you can choose the Redwood Experience or a classic theme. Each theme provides different background colors, icon styles, and so on. You can also add a branding logo and background images to the Home page. To change the general look and feel of your environment, see Customizing Your Display.

This is an example of the Redwood theme.
