Since our 2006 implementation, Hennepin County has had a growing list of enhancement requests for self-service that our users would LOVE to be able to do within the system – personnel actions, automobile use requests, mobile device stipends, security access, add/modify positions, etc. They landed with a thud on IT’s worklist… more to-do’s on a long list waiting for a developer or after review was not a priority to automate.

After struggling with the delivered PS Forms Builder, we started using configurable GT eForms for PeopleSoft in 2017. We’ll discuss what we’ve built, how we’ve developed our in-house skills for creating dynamic PeopleSoft-based forms, and the impact on our business processes. We’ll demonstrate how our new Finance Security eForm delivers an intuitive and attractive user experience, executes our business rules, auto-defaults data, dynamically routes for approvals, and automatically updates PeopleSoft…all built by the County and without modifying delivered objects!

Oracle keeps delivering great new tools to help PeopleSoft clients “de-modify” their systems. The newest is Drop Zones, delivered in the newly-released PeopleTools 8.57.

We’ll give you a step-by-step walkthrough of how to implement Drop Zones, as well as two other “go vanilla” tools – Page and Field Configurator and Event Mapping.

The second half of the session will focus on “go vanilla” strategy. When does it make sense to use each of these tools? Is there still a “right time” for custom development? How do you implement a successful “bolt-on” strategy that minimizes upgrade impact, but still expands system value and targets unique requirements?

Come get the vision and the tools to implement Oracle’s best practices strategy to de-modify. Vanilla really is the best PeopleSoft flavor!

PeopleSoft’s delivered 9.2 Fluid OnBoarding offers a compelling, accessible onboarding experience for new employees. There are some hurdles, though, that can make delivered Onboarding an impractical solution. These include:
-How do you transition data from your Applicant Tracking System to Onboarding to Hire without manual steps and data re-entry?
-To prevent duplicate IDs, you want to gather their birthdate and SSN using Onboarding to see if they already have IDs, but they can’t access Onboarding without an Emplid and a UserID…
-You want them to start Onboarding before their first day of work, especially Section 1 of the I-9, but they can’t access Onboarding until they are hired in Job Data.
-The delivered Onboarding steps are nice, but you need to meet requirements unique to your organization.

The good news is that all these hurdles can be, well, hurdled! We’ll present solutions for each, painting a realistic picture of how delivered 9.2 Fluid Onboarding can work for you.
