Product Enhancement Tracker TIP!

The Product Enhancement Tracker (PET) is a place for our members to submit software enhancement requests to be advocated, ranked, reviewed and tracked. The Product Enhancement Tracker File Library is also available with more resources. Click a type below to start getting involved. If you have a question or wish to share something with your colleagues please use Forums instead, for software bugs please use My Oracle Support.

  1. To add an issue to the PET, the member must first submit a service request to My Oracle Support and receive a SR number
  2. The member may log the issue here to have other HEUG members view and rank the issue.
  3. Reviewing and ranking the issues are vital in assisting the AA PAG committee in identifying those to discuss with Oracle strategists.

Please also vote on the enhancements in the PET! Even if you are unable to attend the conference, your votes tell us which enhancements are the most important to the largest number of institutions!
