Functional Setup Manager is tool within Oracle Fusion Cloud to implement any functional area like HCM, Financials, and Procurements etc.
Functional Setup Manager is also known as FSM.
FSM provide end to end guided process for implementation within entire implementation lifecycle.
FSM application implementation lifecycle have following modules planning, configuration, implement, Export/Import, Transact and Maintain.
Setup and Maintain (Plan) within cloud provide lot of predefine reports which provide useful information for Offering, Options, Features and tasks etc.
Configure Offering : For example HCM payroll option has country extensions like US, UK and India so before implementing payroll option we have to select what country feature we have to select so during implementation system will generate the task accordingly this is called configure offerings.
Once we create implementation project based on selected offering, options and features system will automatically generate task list and tasks.
Task lists is the folder that groups tasks.
Following is example of Features; features are available at offerings as well as options.
