Oracle’s EBS delivers a user interface that was designed to increase the productivity of all users. Here are the compiled list of some of the features that user experiences such rich UI functionality who moved from SAP to Oracle Apps.

  1. Folders for screen layout in which you can change Prompts, Field Orders, Size etc. Refer this post
  2. Top Ten List : User can use the Top Ten List to add personal favorites and most frequently used forms to quickly navigate to them from the Top Ten List on the right side of the screen.
    • The good is that each list is unique to a user and responsibility.
    • To add a form to the Navigation Top Ten List, select a frequently used form in the navigation list (on the left side of the screen).
    • The form name appears in the Top Ten List preceded by a number.
    • To remove a form from the Top Ten List, select the form in the Top Ten List and click the left arrow buttonTop10
  3. Navigator Window : In Oracle a Navigator window will be displayed after a responsibility is selected.User can use this window to navigate to the form that allows you to perform desired business functions. This is the main window that is always displayed during your session.The navigation list is organized in levels. Items that begin with a plus sign (+) can be expanded to further sub-levels until you find the form of interest (no sign will appear). The expand buttons are located on the Navigator window at the left of the screen
  4. File Export to Excel :The File – Export option allows you to dump the data you see on the form.check this post
  5. Multiple Windows Open at one time : Technically called zoom in Oracle.Since 11i multiple Document Interface, which means that all windows are displayed inside a single window, with a single toolbar and menu attached to that window. So, since the toolbar opens as part of the window, there is no way for the toolbar to get disconnected or “lost”.
  6. Workbenches :These are most liked one by key user. These are only menus which carry the whole bunch of functions/submenus.Most of application product does have workbench. If you are new to Oracle you can understand within AR workbench is divided into 3 main sections:
    • Transaction Workbench – Menu: Transactions
    • Receipts Workbench – Menu: Receipts
    • Collections Workbench – Menu: Collections
  7. Message and Status Line :The Message Line and the Status Line are shown at the bottom of the window, instead of on the toolbar.
  8. Required Fields Highlighted – Fields where input is required have a highlighted background,Fields are color coded to indicate the type of activity allowed:
    • White– Permits data entry
    • Yellow– Requires data entry
    • Grey with Black Text- For display only
    • Blue- Indicates the form is in Query-Enter mode
  9. Autofill and Type Ahead
  10. Field Level Update/Validation : That you can get without ‘save’ or ‘Update’ operations.
  11. Drag and Drop: This is feature, in which you can move a column by drag and drop.
  12. Graphical Elements : User can get some graphical elements like ‘T’ Accounts, Graphs, Diagrams directly from UI.
  13. Attachment
  14. Query in all forms : Oracle best feature for user is they can do query is most of the form.
  15. Right Mouse click :Clicking the right mouse will open up a menu that offers the cut, copy, and paste features, as well as folders and help.
  16. Hot keys :Hot keys can increase user productivity by allowing common operations to be executed from a keyboard shortcut, rather than a menu selection. Hot keys are an effective usability tool, especially for “heads down” mouse-less data entry such as rapid order entry.Experienced Oracle Applications users can access the menu by using a keyboard shortcut or hot key, a specific combination of keystrokes that performs the same function as a corresponding menu item. Oracle Applications assigns many commonly used functions, such as Run Query(Ctrl+F11), Save(Ctrl+S), or Clear Record(F6) to keyboard shortcuts.
  17. DFF : Addding a Descriptive Flexfield and Use It
  18. Using FIND penis: If you want to search for records in your current block or window, the simplest way to proceed is to use Find. This will usually display a Find window, in which you can enter the criteria to match, then click the Find button. If any of the fields in the Find window have lists of values associated with them, you can use these to validate your search criteria. Find windows often provide ranges in addition to individual field values (e.g. date or value ranges). However, your search is limited to the fields that have been included in the Find window.

This quick overview of User interface for EBS is designed to provides all kind of end users with a highly productive interface.
