Enabling the available features

New disruptive functionalities are wrapped under a Feature ID during implementation. The new feature code has already been deployed in multi-tenant cloud environment, but the feature must be activated before the users can have access to it.

The Feature Management form enables the Infor M3 Supplier Rebate administrator to control and turn on new functionalities when the users are ready to test or use the application feature updates. This configuration manages the disruptive features to achieve the zero day one impact. Zero day one impact means that after an application upgrade, the user should not experience any training needs since the system continues to work as it did before the upgrade.

Feature Management form has two tabs:
  • Available Features

    This tab lists the new functionalities available for the administrator to activate.

    Available features come with a planned activation date. This is determined by the Development or Release Manager. The feature should be tested, validated, and activated by the designated users by the specified activation date. Otherwise, the feature is automatically activated on this date.

  • Activated Features

    This tab shows all the activated features in descending order based on the Activation Date. This grid is disabled for changes.

  1. Sign in to Infor M3 Supplier Rebate as an administrator.
  2. Select Master Explorer > Supplier Rebate > Utilities > Feature Management.
  3. From the Available Features tab, select the check boxes in the Activate column that correspond to the features you want to activate.
  4. Click Save.

    Once a feature is activated, the feature is removed from the Available Features tab.

  5. To view the activated features, click Activated Features.
    Note: Activated features are irrevertible. Once the features are activated, no users will be able to revert the activated features back to the Available Features tab.

    Depending on the nature of the enhancement or feature update, you may be required to unload all the global form objects through the toolbar menu and then selecting Form > Definition > Unload All Global Form Objects.
