Last weekend our internal Oracle HCM Cloud POD was updated to the latest 20D version.
I was eager to see new functionality that was announced early this year. I am talking about HCM Connections.
I assume that the HCM Connections feature will replace directory and person spotlight features eventually. But for now, this is an initial release.
Below is the description I found on Oracle web resources:
Directory and networking
Integrate your employee directory and organization chart with personal employee profile pages, making it easier to find your peers and foster cross-functional collaboration.
LinkedIn profile import
Give employees an easy way to enhance their personal profile by quickly importing their LinkedIn profile information.
Enable managers to easily access information about their teams’ background, interests, skills, and aspirations, from any device.
Unfortunately, there is still no information about how to configure this feature and Oracle promises update documentation as soon as possible.
However, I managed to enable it! Below is a short animation to give an idea of how it looks like.
The main advantage I found as of now is that the HCM Connections feature uses a department tree to be able to render organization structure based both on supervisor hierarchy and department hierarchy.
Looking forward to getting the official documentation on how to configure the ability to import LinkedIn profile information.
I hope it is helpful.
