University of British Columbia Goes Live with ePAF™ Phase II
29 January 2010
Following up on the successful launch of ePAF™ for student employees in November, the University of British Columbia (UBC) went live today with Phase II of their ePAF™ initiative, extending completely automated personnel action processing for Faculty and Staff employees.
Phase II also delivers Auto-eForm support for all of the delivered eForms. Auto-eForm exposes the creation of an eForm as a web service. UBC now has a SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture) enabled functional interface that allows third-party and batch loads for all job actions, which will still be routed through the appropriate approval process before updating PeopleSoft!

Extreme Makeover, PeopleSoft Edition: Give your Pre-9.1 Apps a Total 8.5 Facelift, Without Mods!
Upgrading your pre-9.1 PeopleSoft application to PeopleTools 8.5 gives your existing app an updated look right away. But many of the best features of 8.5 - like type-ahead lookups on search pages, scrollable grids, mouse-over popup pages, and rich text boxes - require object modifications in App Designer to turn the features on. Do you have to modify dozens of delivered objects, complicating your updates and upgrades, to give your users the Web 2.0 experience they are clamoring for?
This session will show you how to quickly create simplified Quick Entry pages in your pre-9.1 application that use all the great user interface features of PT 8.5, and update the delivered components, without modifying delivered objects. At the same time, you can streamline the user entry process by using only the fields you need, adding custom edits, and even workflow. For example, instead of modifying delivered Job Data to enable type ahead lookups and scrollable grids, you can create a Quick Job Data page that has the Job Data fields you need, with performance-enhancing PT 8.5 features. Users make their changes in the friendly Quick Job Data page, and the transaction is automatically entered in delivered Job Data - without customizing any delivered objects!
We will use GT eForms™ 2.8, Gideon Taylor's bolt-on efficiency toolset for PeopleSoft, to show how quickly you can leverage PeopleTools 8.5 to bring new life to your 8.4, 8.8, 8.9 or 9.0 applications - and even get more value from 9.1. Your customers are going to love the total makeover you can give their PeopleSoft experience!
