If I read the summary of main HCM features in version 9.2 correct, Oracle will be providing a functionality to integrate Absence Management with Microsoft Outlook calendars. This is a feature enhacement I will cheer for. There is a real business need for this as I had argued in a post almost two years ago. It will be interesting though to see the use cases that will be supported by this integration. For example, will there be a two way integration in this case, just like what is present for recruitment solutions? I would assume no as the edit functionalities of Absences is pretty minimal in PeopleSoft (and one of the major pain points of the module!). Let's look ahead to the actual Release Value Proposition (RVP) document to see more detailed features.
