Everyone has back button experiences and opinions. Joy when it works. Confusion when it takes you somewhere unexpected. Frustration when absent. The University of Minnesota upgraded to PeopleTools 8.56 and fluid user interface in the spring 2019. This was proceeded by a lengthy technical and functional project including fluid tiles, fluid navigation collections, Unified Navigation, and much time understanding and modifying back button behavior. This research and effort produced reliable and predictable back button behavior.

Kick the back button blues (not the St. Louis Blues) and always get back to where you once belonged.

Functional appreciation how the back button works.

Discuss the back button. How it should function, that is, Oracle's intentions vs. our assumptions.

Technical review exposing the back button mysteries.

Special attention to debugging the back button using browser debugging tools. This is available to everyone, not just for developers.

Review "bugs" identified by the University of Minnesota. Discuss back button related modifications. Our modifications were eventually converted to Event Mapping.

To remain ADA compliant, employers must provide reasonable accommodations for employees with a disability, and sometimes purchase expense software to keep track of these requests. But did you know that PeopleSoft has delivered functionality to do this? The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill had been tracking this data manually in spreadsheets with no visibility and no reporting. The University implemented Disability Accommodation Tracking module with almost all delivered functionality. Come and learn from our case study in implementing this module.
