Two important announcements for Campus Solutions 9.2
The CS 9.2 Upgrade for PeopleTools 8.55 is available via My Oracle Support, PeopleSoft Campus Solutions Upgrade Home Page (Doc ID 2078564.2). This MOS site contains documentation and an important video for performing the CS 9.2/PT 8.55 upgrade. As a reminder: the process of obtaining the upgrade template has changed with PeopleTools 8.55 so we encourage you to review Getting Started on Your PeopleSoft Upgrade (with PeopleTools 8.55) available on the MOS site Getting Started on Your PeopleSoft Upgrade (using Change Assistant) (Doc ID 739129.1).
The CS 9.2 PUM Update Image 1 is now available via the PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM) Home Page (Doc ID 1641843.2) by selecting the Update Image Home Pages tab, choosing Campus Solutions Update Image Home Page and expanding the section CS Update Image Link. The PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2 Documentation Home Page (Doc ID 2013381.1) section on CS 9.2 Release Documentation contains links to the PeopleSoft CS 9.2 Update Image Overview (Doc ID 2116071.1), the PeopleSoft Campus Solutions Cumulative Feature Overview tool, and CS 9.2 Online Help.
Starting with CS 9.2 PUM Image 1 we are delivering the first CS Fluid homepage and the first of many homepage tiles that allow you to deploy Fluid self-service to your users. In CS 9.2 PUM Image 1 we have delivered:
• Student Homepage
• An example homepage that you can use to build out self-service content to your students.
• Profile Tile
• A new tile that can be added to the Student Homepage or any homepage that you choose to define and deploy.
• The Profile Tile has four Campus Community pages:
• Personal Details – with basic person details and optional display of National ID and Photo; the Names grid allows users to view, add, edit and delete names depending on existing Type Control configuration.
• Contact Details – allows users to view, add, edit and delete email addresses and phone numbers depending on Type Control configuration.
• Addresses – allows users to view, add, edit and delete addresses depending on Type Control configuration.
• Emergency Contacts – allows users to view, add, edit and delete their emergency contacts.
There are some simple setup steps to enable the profile pages and to add the Profile tile to a homepage. Details are given under Managing the Student Homepage in the Using Self-Service Campus Personal Information chapter in PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2 Online Help. Being on Peopletools 8.55 or higher is a pre-requisite for the CS 9.2 features that are delivered with the Fluid UI.
The most significant benefit of CS 9.2 features that are delivered with the PeopleSoft Fluid UI is that they are available to users on smartphones, tablets and laptops as well as desk tops. In future PUM images we are planning on delivering tiles for Campus Community, Recruiting and Admissions, Student Records, Academic Advisement, Student Financials, Financial Aid and Contributor Relations which provide the user with easy access to various transactions associated with these self service operational areas.
In Campus Solutions 9.2 – PeopleTools 8.55, Fluid navigation is delivered as the default navigational framework. Using navigation collections and the Tile Wizard, Fluid also allows you to quickly and easily deploy existing pages (either delivered or custom) grouped together under tiles. You will be able to choose which tiles to add to your homepages at a time that meets your institution’s needs. We are planning on delivering example navigation collections for the most commonly used administrative pages for each of our functional areas to illustrate how existing pages can be easily deployed in Fluid Homepages.
