    Read about what's included in Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud release 19.05.

    Read about the updates for Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting in the What's New document for release 19.05.

    The new functionality available in this update includes:

    Working with Notes in Management Reports: The Notes feature enables you to have a structured solution for end users to enter POV Based narrative text, which can be displayed in formatted reports along with grids and charts, where desired. Notes in the Management Reports can be utilized where reporting structure and narrative requirements are uniform across Entities, Departments, and so on.

    New Disclosure Management features:

    • Auto tagging: The Auto Tag operation can be performed on the Disclosure Management master document. However, be advised that since working with individual doclets enables collaboration of multiple users working on the report, it is more beneficial to Auto Tag individual doclets when there are several users.
      Also, the auto tagging process now supports mapping of multiple dimension per table cell. The table cells for implicitly defined dimension values and supports multiple explicit dimension values that are defined in the row or column headers. All these multiple dimensions may be explicitly defined in the row and column headers, implicitly defined for the whole table or as a part of the table and explicitly described in preceding or within the proceeding text around the table.
    • Anchoring Support for European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) Jurisdiction: This feature is required when you need to create extension concepts to represent line items in the financial statements because they are not available in the European Single Electronic Format (ESEF) base taxonomy or they are company specific, it is required that these additions be "anchored."

    New Versions of Oracle Smart View for Office and Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud 19.05 Extension: The Oracle Enterprise Performance Reporting Cloud 19.05 Extension for Oracle Smart View for Office is available. This update includes new features, general performance improvements and bug fixes and is required for compatibility with Smart View, which will be available in May 2019.
