Document of Record

In oracle fusion we can create document of record to give your employee flexibility to upload electronic/soft copy of the documents. For example visa, passport, medical result, degree, certificates.. Similarly document of record also gives option to employer to share documents with employee like monthly payslip, tax year end files, annual compensation letter etc. Documents of records give rich flexibility to configure approval, override preference and setup notification when a document validity is going to expire. To have different classification of the documents stored by employee  oracle gives flexibility to create categories and subcategories.
