Video 'How-To' Available for Activity Guides

PeopleTools provides a feature called Activity Guides that enable our application developers and customers to create guided processes for users.  Activity Guides are especially useful to walk users through infrequently performed self-service tasks, but are also beneficial for power users that perform complex administrative functions.  Here is an example of an activity guide delivered by the HCM applications for a self-service activity.  PeopleSoft delivers several guided processes out-of-the-box, but it's important to understand that customers can easily create their own activity guides for unique requirements or processes in their enterprise.  To illustrate how simple it is, we've created a video that shows how to create a simple activity guide.  This will get you on the road to creating your own.

Oracle PeopleSoft Publishes User Experience Guidelines

PeopleSoft has introduced many new features in recent releases that provide a rich, contemporary, intuitive user experience.  The frameworks for these features are provided in PeopleTools, and PeopleSoft applications teams have delivered many great instances, particularly in 9.2.  Although our applications teams are delivering a great deal, PeopleTools enables customers to modify delivered instances or create their own to support unique requirements of their enterprise.  If customers do that, they will benefit from applying common user experience guidelines to the things they produce. 

To support customers in those efforts, the PeopleSoft Applications User Experience team is excited to announce the release of the PeopleSoft User Experience (UX) Guidelines. The UX Guidelines contain information about the usage of key PeopleSoft components to create highly usable, efficient, and productive experiences for Oracle customers.



Several PeopleSoft customers participated in a survey in December 2012, which helped identify the following topics. These topics are covered in the first release of the guidelines:

  • Dashboard
  • WorkCenter
  • Guided Processes (Activity Guides)
  • Pivot Grids
  • Pagelets
  • Related Content
  • Related Actions
  • Modal and Mouseover Windows
  • Grids

Why do we need UX guidelines?

With PeopleTools 8.53 and the 9.2 PeopleSoft Applications, you will see more modern and visually appealing features delivered by PeopleSoft. With the help of UX guidelines, customers and partners can not only design and tailor their own user experience but also ensure consistency with features designed by PeopleSoft. The UX guidelines explain each topic in detail, display relevant images and provide usage guidelines. 

UX Guidelines Examples

The following is an excerpt from the WorkCenter section:


The image below shows part of the Dashboard section:



Usage guidelines have been provided for all the other topics as well.  PeopleSoft UX Guidelines will enable customers to design and tailor the ultimate user experience for their organization.  Following the guidelines will ensure consistency across applications. The guidelines would also help in choosing the right pattern for any scenario.  These guidelines will be periodically updated as PeopleSoft introduces new capabilities.
