    Oracle Applications Customer Connect Community Guidelines5.0

    Title:
    Oracle Applications Customer Connect Community Guidelines
    Abstract:

    The Community Guidelines will help you and all our members get the most out of Customer Connect.

    Announcement:

    Oracle Applications Customer Connect is a community gathering place for collaboration that spans several solutions. Whether you are looking for the latest release information for Human Capital Management, upcoming events related to Enterprise Resource Planning, answers to use-case questions specific to Supply Chain Management, or executive messaging on Customer Experience, this Community is your one-stop-shop for sharing ideas, tips, questions and answers, best practices, and experiences.

     

    The Community Guidelines will help you understand what it means to be a member of the Customer Connect community. By using the Community, you also agree to the Oracle Applications Customer Connect Community Access Agreement.

     

    1. Remember the Golden Rule: The Community enables interaction among a global community, made up of users with all levels of expertise. By welcoming new members and showing respect to each other, we create an inviting environment that encourages participation and builds the Community’s value for everyone.

     

    2. Keep it professional. You are welcome to share your perspective on the relevant business topics, but mature, polite discussion is encouraged. Any abusive, derogatory, inappropriate, obscene, offensive, or violent content will be promptly removed.

     

    3. Respect the privacy of others. It is up to you, and only you, to decide what information to share about yourself and your business. Do not post another user's email or postal address, phone numbers, or other personal information.

     

    4. Search first. There is a lot of great information available, so search the Community first to see if your question has been answered or is being discussed – and then add your questions or insights.

     

    5. Make good and relevant contributions. Good contributions provide relevant, insightful information and ask important questions. If you found an answer to your question, you can give back to the Community by posting an update to your question. False, inaccurate, and misleading information, or unsolicited advertising, is not helpful. 

     

    6. Be concise. In general, shorter posts are more likely to be read. Use your words wisely and keep your messages concise.

     

    7. Stay on topic. Keep threads focused on the original conversation. Avoid diluting a discussion by posting a related question; post a new topic instead. 

     

    8. Be specific in your subject lines. Many people decide which discussion threads to read based on the subject line. Craft subject lines that give users a snap shot of your question. For example, briefly state your reporting problem instead of just asking for “Help with custom reporting?”

     

    9. Post to the most relevant forum, not multiple forums. Posting the same question across multiple forums creates disjointed conversations, clutters the community, and undermines the purpose of having topical discussion forums.

     

    10. Give praise when due. Everybody likes to know if their contributions were valuable. If another user helped you or shared worthwhile content, let them know by including a “thanks” in your response and/or rating a post or comment.

     

    11. Keep the Order. The Community exists for you. You can help make it a safe, positive, and valuable place by helping enforce these guidelines and reporting violations.

     

    This list is not exhaustive, but rather than looking for loopholes, we ask that you respect the intent behind these guidelines. In most cases, if you cross one of the lines above, we will give you a warning and address the offense. Subsequent violations will result in the termination of your account.

    Learn more about Simplified UI for Oracle Applications Cloud

    Visit the Voice of User Experience, or VoX, blog for a new post about the strategy behind Oracle’s Human Capital Management (HCM) simplified UI. Learn what’s new from the Oracle Applications User Experience team in Release 7, and find links to new video demos on simplified UI for self-service users and managers.

    Floyd Teter, of EiS Technologies and an Oracle ACE Director, also writes about simplified UI and Oracle Fusion Applications HCM in his recent blog post, “Oracle Fusion HCM -- The Kettle Is Beginning To Boil.”

    There are also a few new posts about Oracle Sales Cloud, such as a post  on the Oracle Applications Blog called “Wow Sales Managers and Reps with An Unmatched User Experience.” A separate post published on VoX last month about Oracle Sales Cloud focuses on what’s new with simplified UI in Release 7.

    Also on VoX, Oracle partner Anne Meyer, of MIPRO Consulting LLC, talks about seeing the direction of the Oracle user experience, including simplified UI, in “Partner Gives a Thumbs-Up to Insight on Oracle User Experience.” She says, “I’m anxious for these products to make it to the marketplace. Some may be game-changing for Oracle, and how people view Oracle products.”

     

    Exploring new user experience concepts

    Oracle invests a great deal in creating a user experience for its applications that empowers customers to be more productive and efficient. One way that investment is made is by exploring new technologies and looking for ways to use them so that the Oracle user experience continues to evolve. Much of that research takes place among the ranks of the Oracle Applications User Experience (UX) team.

    Recent posts on the Usable Apps blog and on TheAppsLab blog look at what and how members of the Applications UX team are exploring new concepts. We invite you to join the conversation! Tell us about your experiences with new technology, and how you think they could be used. To read more about what we’ve found, head over to the Usable Apps blog for new posts on Voice, social network integration, and Google Glass. Then check out Jake Kuramoto’s new post about exploring new concepts on TheAppsLab blog.
