Oracle Applications Forum Launches

I’ve now installed the EE discussion forum and have set up the Oracle Applications Forum which can be accessed on the top menu bar of the home page.

To start off with I’ve created three categories each of which have their own sub-categories. The categories are as follows:

  • Apps Forum - members only
  • Apps Community - public but moderated
  • Other Enterprise Systems - public but moderated

If you feel their is a need for more/less categories, please let me know. One of the nice things about this discussion forum module is that it is feature rich. It has features in it that I have not seen in many other forum packages and I hope that members will make the most of these. Two quite useful features that come to mind are the ability to conduct polls and the facility to upload attachments (such as CV’s, presentations, white papers or sample documentation). The discussion forum module also has really good support for private messaging between members participating in the forum. At this point in time the forum does not have an RSS feed but this will be added shortly.

Any feedback and suggestions you may have for the forum would be much appreciated and I have created a sub category for this in the Apps Forum. I’ve also decided that any job postings will in future go on the forum as opposed to the blog. Please spread the word about the forum as it will only be useful it we have many participants. Lastly, if you are interested in being a moderator please let me know.
