7PEOPLETOOLS 8.50 New Features: User Interface Enhancement Menu Navigation/Dropdown Navigation PeopleTools 8.50 offers floating drop-down menu navigation. Place your mouse over any section of the menu, the menu cascades to the right, revealing more components that you have access to view. Advantages of the new floating navigation are:You can sort the menu – Click the sort icon on the main menu to toggle between alphabetic ascending, descending, and portal sequence number presentation of folders.The menu is scrollable – Click the scroll arrows that appear at the top and bottom of the menu when the menu is too long for you to view in its entirety. When you find the folder or page, select it.You can search the menu – Enter a keyword or phrase and the search index will generate matching entries as you type. When you see a match, select the item in the list.The menu leaves breadcrumbs – As you navigate, breadcrumbs appear across the top of the page to inform you of your location.
8PEOPLETOOLS 8.50 New Features: User Interface Enhancement Modal Prompt Pages and Modal Alert Dialog BoxesAll Look Up (prompt) pages and alert dialog boxes are modal and appear in front of the primary page, which is grayed out while the prompt page is active. When working with these pages, you can:Resize the page.Minimize or collapse the page to the title bar.Close the page from the title bar close icon.
9PEOPLETOOLS 8.50 New Features: User Interface Enhancement Favorites Menu Enhancements The Favorites menu has been enhanced to include a Most Recently Used (MRU) list. The last five (5) most recently accessed pages appear at the top of the Favorites list. The Favorites menu also includes the primary key as part of any Favorite that you save. For example, as a Security Administrator you can create a generic Employee user profile on the Copy User Profile page and save it as a favorite. When new employees are hired, you can navigate directly to this profile within the Favorites menu and quickly create a new employee. You are no longer taken to the search page. This is the new favorites menu showing the Recently Used list and the Base EE User Profile favorite in the My Favorites list:
10PEOPLETOOLS 8.50 New Features: User Interface Enhancement Type Ahead Prompt Fields now include a type ahead text. As you type, the system searches in the background and matches entries in the record to the text you enter. Type ahead is configurable through User Personalizations, and appears on search pages and in prompt dialog boxes. This is an example of type ahead on a Maintain Schedule of Classes page where the user is searching for a “Subject Area” with the letter “m”. System displayed all subjects with letter “M”.
11PEOPLETOOLS 8.50 New Features: User Interface Enhancement Processing Icon Changes The processing and saved icons have changed. The new processing icon looks like this:
12PEOPLETOOLS 8.50 New Features: User Interface Enhancement Search Page Enhancements Search pages now include a Maximum number of rows to return field. When you perform a search using a transaction search page, you can determine the number of entries that the search can return. The maximum value and the default value are set in the Search Settings on the PeopleTools Options page. You can limit the number of search items returned by entering a lower value in the Maximum number of rows to return field on the search page; you can set the number of entries that the search returns to any value less than the maximum. If the search retrieves more than the maximum number of listings, the Search Results grid displays the total number of results above the search results. Sample Screen Shot Below: Rows to return is set to 10, the search results shows possible records but only 10 records are displayed.
13PEOPLETOOLS 8.50 New Features: Query Enhancements Ability to add in-tree criteria promptDownload query to XML fileAfter you click the XML link on the Query Manager or Query Viewer search results page, query results are downloaded to browser as web browser format and there are options that enable you to open, save, or cancel the downloaded file. If you click the Open button, XML formatted query result is downloaded to browser.The Download to XML link is also available on the Query Manager - Run page. In the Schedule Query component, there are two new formats XML and XMLP. XML produces web-row-set XML format result. XMLP produces XMLP format result.
14HR Table Setup New Features or Changes: Template Based Hire Navigation: Main Menu > Set Up HRMS > Product Related > Work Administration > Template-Based Hire > Template Creation Main Menu > Workforce Administration > Template-Based Hire Template-Based Hire (also called Smart-Hire) enables a template administrator to configure hiring pages according to an organization’s unique on-boarding processes that often differ by jobs, geographies, worker types, industries, and so forth. Configuration options include field and page layout, as well as security and automatic updates. Field attribution features include the ability to default and hide values, override defaulted values, or require fields at the user interface level. With templates that default all data common to a job, a person performing entry only needs to enter variable data such as name or address. This significantly reduces the time it takes to enter hire data, and ensures that the data saved to the database is correct and complete. It also is possible to allow or disallow users from overriding template data so that organizations can determine the level of policy flexibility granted to users
15HR Table Setup New Features or Changes: Personal Modal Changes Navigation: Main Menu > Setup HRMS > System Administration > Database Processes The Person Model enables a single source of truth for employee data and work history. Staff productivity improves by entering data only once, instead of several times in multiple systems. Enhancements to Person Model include: Improved flexibility to support the growing contingent worker segment of the workforce Batch process for deleting Employee IDs supports the deletion of specific Employee Records giving organizations the flexibility to manage employee records at a more granular and accurate level, leading to better data integrity and reporting for terminations and turnover analysis Organizations have more options for the types of non-workers who can be paid or receive benefits.

Using the Event Manager framework, you can define the business events that the system raises when you change certain data in application components or run certain PeopleTools Application Engine processes. You can also define the event handlers that the Event Manager framework executes to react to these specific event instances. Raising an event is the act of creating an event instance. If an event is raised, the Event Manager framework automatically executes the business logic for the registered event handlers of the event.
40(Continuation) Modules Enhancements: Human Resources – HCM Event Manager and General HCM EnhancementsTo make code reuse more manageable, we provide a registry that enables you to register HCM interfaces for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). The HCM Registry holds all the interface specifications for available services. It stores contracts from service providers and provides those contracts to interested service consumers. The service provider registers the interface, the service consumer locates the interface in the registry and uses the information to bind and execute the contract between the consumer and the provider.Military Rank enhancements can be applied globally and provide considerable value to global military customers in several ways. A number of new and existing pages now display military-specific fields and sections when the Military functionality is enabled on the Installation table. New components are defined to support the definition and make up of military services, as well as tracking and personal information of individual service members. This feature integrates with the Human Resources Manage Profiles business process to update service member worn rank changes through services defined in the HCM Event Manager.Contingent Worker/Person enhancements added to further take advantage of the 8.9 Person Model changes. We can now track security clearances, badges for all people in your PeopleSoft HCM database.

Also define entities based on your business needs.Streamline profile administration by copying items between profiles. For example, employee profiles can contain profile items that also appear in job code or salary grade profiles.Control who can view or change profiles by enabling profile approval processing. Use the security settings for each content section to control who can view and update the section.Perform targeted analysis through powerful search and compare tools.Integrate with ePerformance, Recruiting Solutions, and Enterprise Learning Management and other PeopleSoft applications, such as Financials and CRM.

Select existing formulas to calculate life insurance coverage or create your own formula.Established simple Rate Plans to help you set up long-term care insurance, employee assistance plans, legal plans, and other types of insurances that only require an associated rate.Simplified many dependent relationships and mapped them to benefit eligible statuses.Streamlined several Savings Plan components to increase usability and flexibility to limit processing and overrides.Garnishment ProcessingImproved flexibility for garnishment processing by leveraging the Canadian rules-based engine to meet the ever-changing regulatory requirements in the United States. This gives customers complete control over all aspects of their garnishment calculations by providing users more flexibility in defining the applicable earnings and exemptions. These changes increase staff productivity by reducing the amount of manual labor required to compute garnishments, which also improves data accuracy. Business flexibility is also improved.
