Attachments can be saved in several places. For example, you can:
- Only keep uploaded attachments whilst an absence is pending approval
- Save attachments to the absence attachments section after approval so they can be seen in the standard Oracle Absence form (PUI) by professional users
- Save attachments to the Supporting Documents section after approval so they can be seen in the standard Oracle Oracle Applications Framework (OAF) Absence Management page
The second two options can only be used with the HR_GENERIC_APPROVAL_PRC workflow process. The HR_LOA_JSP_PRC workflow process does not support the saving of attachments.
To control how attachments are saved you specify additional function parameters on the block's Linked function:
|Behavior||Set these parameter(s)|
|Don't save attachments||&pSaveAttachments=N|
|Save attachments to the Oracle Absence PUI form||&pSaveAttachments=Y&pSaveAttachmentsAsSupportingDocs=N|
|Save attachments to the Supporting Documents section||&pSaveAttachments=Y&pSaveAttachmentsAsSupportingDocs=Y|
Applaud's recommendation is to save attachments to the Oracle Absence PUI form, ie, set pSaveAttachmentsAsSupportingDocs=N.
Uploading of absence attachments is subject to standard file upload security, such as the file size and allowed file types. Please refer to Forms - File upload security for more information.
