Key Features of the Oracle Fusion Time and Labor Solution

Here’s a closer look at the main components and features of Oracle’s Time and Labor application:

Efficient Time Entry

Oracle’s Time and Labor system provides intuitive daily, weekly, and monthly calendars and intelligent drag-and-drop capabilities that enable employees to entire hours for time or absence for a range of dates at one time, empowering quicker time entry and submission processes.

Extensive Time Collection

The Time and Labor platform offers a fully configurable Web Clock and critical integration capabilities that automate time registration processes and make it easier for organizations to support various time management activities from a single platform.

Users can also combine time entry through time clocks and the Web Clock with time entry cards and calendars to automate the time registration to payroll process and establish greater control over their most critical time management processes.

Comprehensive Time Cards

Oracle Time and Labor provides comprehensive time card entry capabilities to fill the gaps left by traditional calendar entry systems. With the Time Card Composer tool, users can configure critical calendar components to meet their individual and organizational needs and manage their time card entry system without involving IT teams.

Flexible Time Approvals

The Time and Labor application leverages standard approval mechanisms for managing time card approvals, enabling users to review and approve a group of time cards at summary level with just one click. Flexible approval methods of Line and Project Manager can also be used with out-of-the-box functionality or extended to more complex routing processes as needed.

User Defined Time Card Fields

Oracle Cloud Time and Labor allows users to either report time against predefined Payroll and Project fields or define their own time card fields to report on time data and facilitate integrations between third-party or finance systems.

Configurable Rules Engine

The Oracle Cloud Time and Labor solution leverages a Fast Formula rules engine and configurable templates to validate time entry before time cards are saved, submitted, resubmitted, or deleted.

Both the predefined formula and relevant rules can be extended for various data elements, enabling users to enter time more effectively, reduce the need for batch processes to execute the rules, and calculate overtime and premium hours in real-time.

Standardized Integrations

The Time and Labor application comes with pre-built integrations to other Oracle HCM Cloud applications, like Payroll, Absence Management, and Projects. Standardized connections between applications provides a seamless experience for managing active and absent time, validating time against projects, and ensuring accurate compensation for hours worked.
