Welcome to the HCM User Group! The User Group meetings provide implementers with the opportunity to learn and exchange information on technical topics with Micro Focus subject experts, partners, and HCM user peers. These monthly discussions are best suited for those with implementation expertise and/or previous training. Topics include product best practices, technical drill-down, release readiness, and 'drop-in office hours'. 

When: Monthly Thursday at 8:00 AM Pacific (UTC-8) (third Thursday, see schedule below)

Where: REGISTER HERE  for the live meetings, then block your calendar for monthly meetings and check back here regularly for topic updates.

What:  The calendar of topics and dates will be updated in the table below. You may also want to subscribe to the Q&A and Learn online communities here.


There are three types of meetings:

Feature Spotlight - Join these sessions to get a deeper understanding of new or existing CSA/HCM/HCMX features and capabilities. Our HCM product experts will provide demonstrations, host discussions, and answer common questions. The format for these meetings include feature drill-downs, using HCM/HCMX or other Micro Focus technologies, best practice sharing, and practical use cases with crawl, walk, run scenarios for specific capabilities.

Release Readiness  - With each quarterly release of HCMX we host the Release Readiness meeting to help you prepare for the upcoming release. We discuss what is being introduced and the value of adopting the new capability into your business, and provide practitioners with the details of what changes, enhancements and new capabilities are included for your implementation and technical considerations. We also recommend reviewing the release documentation and attending the Feature Spotlight drill-down sessions which provide greater details about the release.

Office Hours - This open meeting provides an opportunity for CSA/HCM/HCMX users to ask questions and engage with the product experts and your peers. You can provide suggestions for future Feature Spotlight topics, and share your own best practices and tips.
