April Update - Visibility into New SaaS Functionality

Hello Oracle Cloud User,

Major releases are the primary vehicle for delivering new product functionality to the SaaS fleet. In addition, the SaaS fleet receives a monthly update. As you would expect, monthly updates address product issues discovered mid-release. But they can also serve as a vehicle for delivering "new features". The purpose of this communication is to provide visibility into new and enhanced functionality that is delivered off-cycle via monthly updates.

Your Action:  If you are focused on one of the product areas below, please check out the associated RCD and What's New documents (hosted on the cloud site) to learn about the recent changes. The Revision History section at the beginning of each document will serve as your pointer.

PartnerDirect: HCM Cloud Release 11 Upgrade Impact Analysis - 20 April

Before upgrading, you should understand the impact of the many HCM Cloud features being introduced with Release 11 on your upgrade effort. 

Oracle's guidance for feature uptake with this and any release is that you implement and/or roll them out after you have upgraded successfully. The material provided in the presentation will help you identify whether a new feature is exposed automatically or requires implementation work to use (or hide). 

Use this information to understand the impact of these new features, right after the upgrade and later when you can choose which features to implement.
