The PeopleSoft Benefits Strategy, Support, and Development Team has been monitoring My Oracle Support and a number of community list serves concerning COVID-19. PeopleSoft Customers are very resourceful in creating methods to deal with benefits issues related to their business practices.

The Spotlight on Life Events video is a good resource. It walks you through the Activity Guide Composer that Fluid Benefits Enrollments are built on. The Open Enrollment Knowledge Document provides important installation documentation and other resources.

Absence Management is the go-to solution for Leave Plans, FMLA, and all types of leave tracking because it is very robust and flexible.

These topics and others relating to COVID-19 are all cataloged on the PeopleSoft COVID-19 Info Center on My Oracle Support (doc id 2650817.2).
