Ease of Use – Millennial PeopleSoft

PeopleSoft 9.2 Dashboards, WorkCenters and PeopleSoft FUI 

Happy New Year!!

PeopleSoft 9.2 Dashboards, WorkCenters and PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface (FUI) will turn your current PeopleSoft system into a modern, up-to-date system and, most important – make the system more user friendly and just plain easier to use.

While many companies have upgraded to PeopleSoft 9.2, and many others are still planning to, we have found that most clients who have upgraded have yet to really take advantage and leverage the latest enhancements and updated value available for their organizations to use.  It is one thing to keep up with the new features and benefits through the current 9.2 Selective Adoption systematic process with the regular PUM Image Updates, but everyone should give serious thought to modernizing the “ease of use” and updated “look and feel” by changing the user interface to the latest Fluid User Interface (FUI) and by using the new personalized Dashboards and WorkCenters.  These new enhancements meet the objective of many organizations in offering modern current tools to attract new hires and for their “Millennials” to work with.

Below are links to a number of articles from our MIPRO Blog (where there is a lot of useful information) which will give you a good overview of what these are all about and how you might take advantage and leverage these new capabilities.  There are more articles out there to read, so below are several that might introduce the concepts for your consideration

PeopleSoft 9.2: Dashboards vs. WorkCenters. Over the course of a few presentations we’ve watched as well as several discussions we’ve had, we’ve come to notice there is some confusion between Dashboards and WorkCenters in PeopleSoft 9.2. So, we’d like to clarify to make sure these two terms don’t get conflated or swapped. It’s the old adage: if one person has a question about something, rest assured others do too. So, Dashboards vs. WorkCenters…….

Fluid Dashboards. There has been a lot of discussion on new functionality and features with Fluid User Interface (FUI) that have been delivered since the release of PeopleTools 8.54. Now with the release of Tools 8.55, FUI extends itself into the technology area in several ways:

  • PeopleTools Health Center
  • PUM Dashboard
  • FLUID Dashboards
  • FLUID Related Content

PeopleSoft Fluid and Classic WorkCenter Scope.  PeopleSoft Fluid and Classic WorkCenter Scope was introduced in PeopleSoft FSCM Update Image 19 in June 2016. If enabled, PeopleSoft Fluid and Classic WorkCenter Scope allows the end user to select filters to better narrow, or filter, the content in their WorkCenter. One scope or multiple scopes can be defined. When the end user changes scopes, they are changing the set of filter values applied to all the configured My Work links. This gives them the ability to quickly change between work for different operations with one drop down list selection.   Users may want to setup scopes for different regions, groups of buyers, groups of business units, etc.  Here is an example for WorkCenter Scope setup in the Billing WorkCenter…….

When you would like to discuss these in detail, just let us know and we can arrange for that. These can make a big difference to your users and they do make it look like a different system, by being more intuitive and “user friendly,” but with the technology that you already have in place. You don’t need a new system to do that – you just need to update the one that you already have in place. Feel free to email us at bob.neely@miproconsulting.com or Larry.zagata@miproconsulting.com
