    Allow Inactive HCM Assignments to update Cost Rate Table

    If an assignment has been end dated after Payroll has processed and prior to the Projects cost rate table being updated then we get Projects exceptions. 

    One scenario is that an employee is getting a promotion in the middle of a pay period.  If HR executes the core HR action of creating a new assignment (i.e. promotion assignment) and end date the old assignment in the middle of a timecard period Payroll will be correct because it can date track.  However, when we go to enter in cost rates into Projects after Payroll has processed and we have actual costs the old assignment that has been end dated throws an exception in projects.

    Another scenario is that an employee has changed jobs and now has a different cost rate and the core HR transaction takes place after payroll has been processed in preparation for the next round of time collection.  If the old assignment is end dated prior to updating the cost rate table in Projects then Projects will throw an exception.

    The request is to relax this constraint to allow for any assignment that was captured in OTL and Payroll for a given time card and pay period to be allowed to be entered into the cost rate table and not throw an exception.  Or allow for a configuration setting to allow for a business to determine if they will allow costs with an end dated assignment to be imported or not.

    To avoid these exceptions in Projects we have had to implement a complicated set of small working windows where core HR actions can take place or cost rate tables can be updated.  What would make more sense is to allow for whatever was approved and paid via the timecard to be the source of truth and have projects assume that what it is getting is accurate even if the assignment has been end dated in the HCM record.

    Summary:
    Generate Capitalized interest process is going into draft failure
    Content:

    When we run  Generate Capitalized interest process is going into draft failure.
    Mainely because some projects do not have eligible transactions and some of the projects do not meet threshold critirea which is set to $250,000.
    Before 19B upgrade even with the warning and errors in the report(run  Generate Capitalized interest process), the release button was enabled and we were able to proceed transfer and post the transactions to GL.

    Licenses for Project Managers15.0

    Licenses for Project Managers
    Summary:
    Do any user with the Project Manager Duty needs a full PJF license?
    Content:

    Hello PPM community,

    Regarding licensing of PPM Cloud:

    When I assign an employee as a Project Manager in PFM, it automatically grants the Project Manager Duty in Oracle security console, so that the PM is now able to perform basic operations.

    Project managers can change a lot trough the time and a lot of Project can be created, so the number of employees with the Project Manager Duty can increase in the application...

    Do any employee that has the Project Manager Duty assigned to him needs a PFM license? Do any employee marked a Project manager on a Project needs a PFM license?

    Thanks a lot,

    Xavier

    Errors trying to close PPM for year-end
    Summary:
    5 issues/errors and need to figure out best way to handle/address (see below for details)
    Content:

    PJF_CAL_BILL_TXN_COSTED

    PJF_CAL_EVENT_REV_GEN (I think this has to do with events that the end-user didn't put the project on the event so it doesn't know how to assign the revenue...I can do mapping for a "oops" configuration, but need to know then how to move all those events into the correct fund source to recognize the revenue???)

    PJF_CAL_RDL_UNACCTD_ERR

    PJF_CAL_GL_UNACCTD (These are supplier invoices)

    PJF_CAL_UNSWEPT_ERR (are these transactions that are currently in process and really aren't an issue?)

    Mass updates of Team Members
    Content:

    Does anyone have a solution for updating/revising team members en mass? A company has 4,000 projects with the same PM and Project Admin. They need to change both on half the current projects. It will be very time consuming to go into each individual project and delete or end date the current person and add a new one. I've been told this can only be done individually through PPM and am looking for another solution. Thanks, Larry

    Has anyone implemented Primavera integration to Fusion PPM using Oracle Fusion Project Integration Gateway.

    What's your experience? Is this real time or batch process? Have you encountered any specific issues during design and deployment?

    I'm keen to know integration around project creation and updates, tasks creation and updates, budgets creation and updates, forecasts creation and updates. Is it also possible to update EVM [earned value management] result too.

    Re-using Project Name and Number

    Hi, 

    Has anyone figured out a workaround to delete a project name/number in PPM so that it could be re-used again? I have a situation where I need to delete two projects and then recreate with the same name/number. Its my understanding once a name/number is created it cannot be used again. 

    Thank you, Larry

    Functionality Differences Between Projects and Grants Accounting

    Hi Everyone,

    Does anyone know of any documentation from Fusion of the differences between Projects Vs Grants.
    Here is a link  to an old documentation of Grants from EBS that lists the differences as to what is supported vs not supported in Projects Vs Grants (sample of what I am looking for).

    https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18727_01/doc.121/e13567/T237204T237207.htm#T237263
    Functionality Differences Between Projects and Grants Accounting

    I am looking for something similar in Fusion to have better understanding of what is supported and not in Grants Vs Projects in Fusion.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Using Project portfolio management cloud - Project financial management, I would like to be able to provide access to "Review Project Performance" workarea to other employees than the Project Manager.

    Currently the access to this area is granted only to Project Managers, I would like my administrators to get access too.

    Any thoughts ?

    Thanks
