PeopleSoft FSCM Update Image #47 has been generally available since 25 March 2023, and it contains many important new functional enhancements.

Customers can selectively adopt new features and enhancements using the PeopleSoft Update Manager.

If you haven’t heard what has been released as part of Update Image #47 here are some highlights:

Billing

Create Billing Business Units

Enhanced the Business Unit Management feature to add business units using the PeopleTools Activity Guide. This feature combines the most common components used to Billing business units into a single location so you can use one central component. Billing, Asset Management, and Receivables are added as source business units in Update Image 47.

Enhanced Direct Debit Management in eBill payment

Enhanced eBill Payment to include direct debit invoices in total balance, and the ability to change the payment method of direct debit invoices while making a payment.

Expenses

Identify Direct Deposit Bank Account Number

Enhanced the Load Employee Data process that loads data from Human Resources. You can identify which bank account number to use for direct deposit expense reimbursements.

A new option is added to the Load Employee Data page that synchronizes the default bank account with the Human Resources system. This allows you to automatically change the default bank account if a change occurs in your Human Resources system.

General Ledger

Real Time Indexing for Journals

Added the ability to enable Real Time Indexing (RTI) and RTI batch switch for specific General Ledger transactions.

Real Time Indexing (RTI) uses Direct Transfer methods to transmit search data directly from PeopleSoft batch servers to Elastic search. Indexing is performed in near real-time by sending the data as soon as it is saved.

Receivables

Create Receivables Business Units

Enhanced the Business Unit Management feature to add business units using the PeopleTools Activity Guide.

Asset Management

Enhanced Review Depreciation Component with Related Content

Enhanced the Review Depreciation component with related content, which enables you to view book or cost history information related to the asset. Related content displays below the transaction page in a split screen format.

Create Asset Management Business Units

Enhanced the Business Unit Management feature to add business units using the PeopleTools Activity Guide.

Enhanced Create Asset Copies with Additional Fields

Enhanced the Create Asset Copies page with the Location and Area ID fields.

Maintenance Management

Enhanced Work Order Procurement Item Details

Enhanced the Work Order Schedule – Purchase/On Hand grid with new Supplier Item ID, Item Status fields and reorganized grid layout to simplify user entry and review activities by grouping logically related fields.

Project Costing

Process Deferred Billings

Added a My Work exception on the fluid Project Costing WorkCenter to review and update deferred billings. The exception allows users to update the billing date for deferred billing transactions and place a contract bill plan on hold or remove a hold.

Remove Locks Caused by Long Running Processes

Enhanced the Contracts Limits process (CA_LIMITS) to quickly release the database lock on the table used to generate new resource IDs allowing other processes that also generate new resource IDs to complete quicker.

Strategic sourcing/Purchasing/ePro

Registration and Change Request Template Determination

Added the ability to enable internal or external Supplier or Bidder Registrations and Change Request template lookup and selection to find a template most closely aligned to the registration or change request task.

Default Date Range for Manage Obsolete Requests and View Registration/Request History

Added the ability to define default date range for Manage Obsolete Requests and View Registration/Request History.

ePro Batch Switch for Requisitions

Added the ability to turn off Real Time Indexing (RTI) when certain high volume batch jobs that update eProcurement Requisitions and, in some instances, PO Headers. When RTI is disabled, it is recommended that incremental indexing for Requisitions and POs be run, which will automatically enable RTI again when finished.

Mobile Inventory Management

Fluid Auto Kick Off Putaway

Enhanced Mobile Inventory to Kick off the complete putaway process automatically for the items on the Perform Putaway - Fluid Page.
