Announcing PeopleSoft HTML Email Approvals for HCM

As part of our ongoing commitment to provide enhancements for customers on existing releases,  a new capability for approvers in PeopleSoft HCM 9.1 is now available. The PeopleSoft Approval Workflow Engine (AWE) enables you to take action on approval requests directly from an email (for example: approve, deny, pushback, enter comments, or other AWE actions). There is no need for the approver to log into PIA to approve a request, they can take action and add comments directly from the email.

The HTML Email Approval feature delivers HTML email templates for some of the key PeopleSoft HCM Talent Management transactions including:

  • Job Opening
  • Job Offer
  • Absence Request
  • Extended Absence Request
  • Promote Employee
  • Transfer Employee
  • Reporting Change
  • Performance Document

Working with Requests

When a requestor submits a transaction for approval, an email is generated and sent to the approver(s), which contains detailed information about the transaction request. Based on the transaction’s configured actions, an approver can take action directly from the email by clicking a link, such as Approve, Deny, or Pushback, to generate a reply to the request. The email may display requestor comments and, if applicable, view approval history from other approvers. In addition to this, if further details or information is needed, the email also provides a link that will take the approver to the PIA approval component for that transaction.

Manager Self Service at your Fingertips

Last week we released new and improved Manager Self Service capabilities in PeopleSoft HCM 9.1. We delivered a new Manager Dashboard, streamlined many Manager Self Service transactions, provided new Pivot Grid capabilities, and implemented one-click Related Actions accessible from multiple places – all with the goal of improving every Manager’s self service experience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Manager Dashboard

These new capabilities have the potential to significantly impact an organization’s bottom line, and here is why.

Increased Efficiency

The Manager Dashboard provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for your Managers with all of the key data they need consolidated into a single view. Alerts notifying managers of important tasks are immediately viewable and actionable. Administrators can configure the dashboard to include the most important pagelets needed for their organization, and Managers can personalize it to fit within their personal way of conducting their tasks. The Related Actions feature further improves the ease with which Managers get their work done by providing one-click access to Manager Self Service transactions. 

Increased Job Satisfaction

The streamlined Manager transactions, related actions, and the new Manager Dashboard provide an enhanced user experience. Managers are able to quickly get in, get the information they need, complete their transactions, and get out. Managers can spend their time focusing on getting the business results they need instead of their day to day HR tasks.

Enhanced Decision Support

Administrators can ensure the information and analytics they want their Managers to use are available from the Manager Dashboard, establishing best business practices. Additional pivot grids relevant to your own organization can be added to the Manager Dashboard. With this easy access to the relevant information in an easily understood format, Managers can make the right business decisions needed to improve their team and their team’s productivity.
