    ANNOUNCEMENT: Opt-In Features with Expiry Dates
    Some Opt-In Features introduced since Update 19B have expiry dates, be aware that at this point they will become automatically enabled and you may need to prepare for this

    Opt-In Features allow you to uptake functionality at a time that suits you.

    This post is to advise that some Financials Opt-In features introduced in Updates 19B and 19C have an expiration date as future functionality depends on them. When the Opt-In Expiry date is reached, these features will automatically be opted-in as part of the update. You need to be aware of these and plan for them, as they may affect your users even if you did not actively opt-in to that feature.

    The attached document contains information on all Financials and Accounting Hub Opt-In features that are due to become automatically enabled in future updates, so that you can plan for them within the timescales given. Once a feature is automatically opted-in, you may still need to take additional setup or configuration steps to enable the feature. If you do not perform these additional steps, the feature will be opted-in automatically but you will not be able to use it.

    Please don’t ignore this – it is important and might well affect you.

    If you have any questions or comments, feel free to add them as replies to this post. 

    With thanks,

      Thanks for the information. I was reading through the Expense and the Enhanced Approval Notification. Under Key Resources it says :

      For more information about the usability enhancements, refer to the following topic in Oracle Applications online help:

      I was not able to find a document with more information. Can you please point me in the right direction.

      Thank you Zoe

      I am really looking forward to implementing the screens and notifications simplifications announced with the 19B.

      Users are struggling to use itemization and have multiple screens.

      A question on the activation though: if we activate the option by opting in as described in the documentation, can we still opt out if, after the initial tests, we consider that the feature is not mature enough?

      I see that the changes will become mandatory with version 20 so we have a bit of time to get it right before pushing it to the users (either on UAT or live)

        Hi Marcella,

        Yes, for the 19B expenses usability enhancements you are able to switch this back off after you have opted-in if you want to. 

        With regards, Zoë
