Job Data Modernization is one of the biggest transformational PeopleSoft HCM features available today – Let’s make sure you are ready!

The Job Data component within PeopleSoft Human Resources is one of the most used components by your HR Administrators. Job Data serves as the central source of any employee’s job-related information. Nearly all PeopleSoft HCM modules and PeopleSoft products use the job information from Job Data for many requirements.

Later this year, we expect to make available a Fluid, activity guide-based redesign of the entire Job Data component to make it easier to use, minimize data entry errors, and facilitate new user adoption. Customers will also be able to configure approval processes, pages, and fields by action/action reason, masking for personally identifiable data, and replacement or extension of customizations.  Also planned is the ability to attach documents and improvement of the search functionality in Job Data; two of the most highly requested enhancements by customers.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the major design enhancements.


New Manage Human Resources Dashboard:

HR Administrators will have a dedicated, personalizable dashboard to access important Core HR transactions as tiles. The new Manage Job tile will provide access to Job Data. The more you personalize the dashboard with additional tiles to match your role and responsibilities, the less likely you will need to navigate the system via the traditional menu.


New Configurable Search
