Before we talk about 'People Management Templates' in Oracle HRMS let us find out about 'Forms Configurator' in HRMS which is used to create/modify such templates for easy use of forms in HRMS.
You have many Forms customisation facilities in Oracle HRMS. But 'Forms Configurator' is one such tool which holds the best of all features and easy-to-use user-friendly tool in HRMS. 

'Forms Configurator' Navigation: Oracle HRMS Manager (Responsibility) -> Security -> Forms Configurator

Using configurator we can customise most forms in the following areas:

  a) add/remove fields
  b) adjust field positions
  c) modify field properties
  d) customise tabs/windows in a form
  e) map fields to oracle database columns  

 

People Management Templates: 
=============================
To minimise the tedious entries of various fields in the people screens in HRMS, Oracle has come up with a concept of
People Management Templates which allows the entry/editing of the most important entries needed for a new hire/existing person.
These templates help easy data entry/retrieval, with minimal navigations, for a HR Data Entry Operator.
A typical people management template consists of:
(a) tabs (b) windows - Find, Summary, Maintain windows & (c) Items
Oracle HRMS has provided a set of pre-defined people management templates as:
Navigation: Oracle HRMS Manager (Responsibility) -> People -> Maintain Using Templates 
 (1) Hiring Applicants 
 (2) Entering Employees 
 (3) Maintaining Employees 
 (4) Entering Contingent Workers 
 (5) Maintaining Contingent Workers
 (6) Visa Administration

These pre-defined templates can be customised as per the localisation/organisation requirements. So it is always advised to create a copy of the template and then start customising the copied one, instead of messing with the original core template.

Example on how to build a new people management template:
Step 1: Find & Copy Core template

  This step is to find a core template for which we wish to make a copy and do the customisations we plan to.
  Navigate to Security -> Forms Configurator using Oracle HRMS Responsibility.
  You get the Find Template Window
  Find a pre-defined template for e.g say the people hire template. Chose the people hire template with code: PER_HIRE_APPS
  Press 'Copy' button to create a copy of this template
  Enter the following in the Copy template window:
  a) Template Code - PER_HIRE_APPS_CUSTOM
  b) Template Name - Customisd Hire Applicants Template
  c) Enabled       - enable/disable the template
  d) Legislation   - if you are localising the template enter the legislation else leave it global


Step 2: Build/Customise the copied template
After the above step, you have the new template open for you to customise/edit.
You can navigate to any window/tab/item to edit/set the properties.
While you are editing the items/tabs you would have a preview of the modified template under your edit window. Each component: window/tab/window has its own configurable properties, which can be modified according to your customisations.
This is almost similar to how you build a form from a template.fmb in Forms Developer exercises.

For example, for an item/field: we can set the visible, enabled, required, insert allowed, update allowed, query allowed properties.
Also you can edit the length, width and height of a field. 

Step 3: Use the template
This custom template created by Forms Configurator can be used by creating a function with the template code of the custom template passed as template_name parameter.
The function created for the custom template can be used in the HRMS Navigator Menu.
These actions can be performed by a System Administrator.

I am pasting here the queries and the answers for queries asked by Burhan Minhaj!

Hi,

I found this article good but I had 2 queries, that are;

1. How can we add more Tabs in Employee Maintain Templates, (actually now Personal, Checklist, Compensation Tabs are coming). If I Want to add leaves or Contact Tab in it, how it can be possible

Answe r-------------- ----- While editing the template (after you copy and save your template), navigate to: Windows -> -> Canvases -> -> Tab Pages
Click on the add button in the toolbar and you have additional two tabs (Page6 and Page7). You can use these two additional tabs to use it for contact/leavers tabs.
Then you add the items in the Item navigator and assign the tab property to either of these tabs.
Note: People Management Templates are designed for easy-to-use and to enter minimal and fast entry of people data by HR personnel. So, there is no point we clog these templates and make them similar to the People Forms.

2. Crete item are not showing full information regarding employee, i.e Requirment is to add Contact in any of the tab, but actually no contact Items are not listed when we are creating new Property item in the Template.

Answ er------------- ------ Again, there are no contact items provided as these templates are provided for minimal and entry of main data for a person. These templates are not designed to enter all the data as we enter in the People Forms. We have Fastpath forms to do such activities for Absence,Contact s, etc.

Note: People Management Templates are mainly used when you need to enter important data for a person, with minimal entries.
Hope you understand my above mentioned queries and will update me soon for this.

Thanks&R egards

My requirement is to create a new tab named "Employee Qualification" and create some education qualification fields on the tab of the already existing custom template of employee from people form.

I have created a tab in the maintenance window but when creating new items on the tab, I cannot find the item from items list. How to achieve this?
