GT eForms™ - Part 1: Introduction
See how GT eForms™ enables business analysts to create powerful, configurable electronic forms within PeopleSoft, including auto-population, conditional page/segment/field display, rule-based logic, conditional approval routing, and more.
GT eForms™ - Part 2: Rapid Form Creation
GT eForm's rapid form creation simplifies the process of creating and publishing customized eForms in PeopleSoft with just a few easy steps.
GT eForms™ - Part 3: Changing the appearance and layout of your eForm
With GT eForms™, business analysts can adjust and extend form functionality entirely on their own, including changing the layout of fields and segments, changing field behavior -- and configuring prompts, dropdowns, related value displays, prepopulation, and dynamic defaulting.
GT eForms™ - Part 4: Adding unique business logic and rules to your eForm
The GT eForms™ logic engine enables functional analysts to make forms interactive, guiding users through complex processes, adjusting dynamically based on different input, such as hiding fields and segments when they aren't needed. Making a form responsive to user input and other important conditions results in a form that's simple, user-friendly, and accurate.
GT eForms™ - Part 5: Configuring approval routing, email notifications, and action items
With GT eForms™, the PeopleSoft Approval Workflow Engine (AWE) is already built into every form you create. Beyond that, GT eForms includes functional tools that allow analysts to configure both robust approvals and notifications, without programmers!
GT eForms™ - Part 6: Enabling technical extensions for your eForm
If your requirements exceed the configuration-based capabilities of GT eForms™, don't worry. The GT eForms framework supports technical extensions for any level of complexity. Built-in hooks allow PeopleCode to be added to perform complex calculations and validations, data population from non-PeopleSoft systems, as well as automatic entry into PeopleSoft. Developers can change form appearance and behavior, and implement robust search functionality. Form actions can even be performed in batches, or by robot processes.
GT eForms™ - Part 7: Making it easier than ever to create custom Fluid applications
Looking to take advantage of PeopleSoft's Fluid user interface? GT eForms is the fastest way to create powerful Fluid self-service applications. Making any form Fluid is as easy as selecting "Fluid" in your form setup pages, and GT eForms takes care of the rest. No development required! Is it time to celebrate yet?
