Simplified Loader’s GL Template provides functionality to upload one or many journal batches using the Excel Spreadsheet in a single click. This simplifies the process of data input and review as Excel makes it very convenient to perform the calculation of totals etc.
GL Journal Template is best suited for the Finance team and data migration. The portable nature of Simplified Loader Excel sheets makes it possible to distribute the file to any user (inside or outside your organization) who wishes to GL Journal details. The Finance team can distribute the Template to other users of the organization, for them to enter Journal which they want to upload in Oracle Fusion. Using Simplified Loader to capture journal details simplifies the end to end journal entry process, as the same file is used to enter details by the end-user and also to upload data into Oracle Fusion. GL Journal Template allows us to submit the Journal Import process from within the Spreadsheet, and review any import errors. Therefore, the user does not need to use any other screen to complete the end to end journal import process.
Oracle provides FBDI and ADFdi sheets to upload journals into Oracle Fusion. In comparison with FBDI, Simplified loader Templates are 95% more convenient to use in terms of organizing data in Excel, steps involved in data upload, and resolving errors. Similarly, in comparison with ADFdi, Simplified Loader Templates are not restricted to use a rigid column sequence set by Oracle. ADFdi sheets cannot be shared with all users, as ADFdi needs a plugin and valid login credentials to Oracle Fusion. Please review a detailed comparison with FBDI and ADFdi Template here.
