New Red Paper Available on Crafting a Great User Experience for PeopleSoft

Many people don't realize that they can craft a rich, web site-based user experience with PeopleSoft.  Now there is a new Red Paper available that provides a practical guide for technical users, installers, system administrators, and programmers who implement, maintain, or develop applications for your PeopleSoft system. This red paper, provides a guide on how to configure a contemporary user experience using PeopleSoft Applications Portal.

The red paper contains information on the following essential topics:

  • Branding
  • Creating a Portal header definition
  • Customizing the Homepage Tab layout
  • Customizing Pagelet Layout and Behavior
  • How to build rich pagelets using Pagelet Wizard
  • Creating Navigation Collection-Based Accordion Style Pagelets
  • Creating News Publication Based Slide Show Pagelets
  • Creating HTML Pagelets with Rich Content
  • Navigation Collections (several topics)

The paper also cover application integration with Portal:

  • Configuring Unified Navigation
  • Consuming Content Provider Pagelets

In addition to the Portal, the new workcenter framework is also covered, as are Collaborative Workspaces.

  • Customizing the WorkCenter Layout
  • Customizing the Workspace Branding Theme

There is great detail provided in this paper, and should prove useful to anyone deploying PeopleSoft's Applications Portal.

I'm not able to replicate this. This doc is posted on my.oracle.support. Is the problem that you can't get to the article on MOS or that you can't download the paper once at the article? Are you able to download other docs from MOS?

Note for anyone having trouble downloading this paper: We have not been able to replicate the problem. The document is posted on My Oracle Support, but it requires a valid MOS login.

Hi Matt - great document and long overdue! While I have been using most of these solutions for years in my implementations (News with jQuery, XSL with Nav Collections, App Packages, et c) it was amazing to read about Unified Navigation, new pagelet attributes for "banner pagelets" without hardcoding <pagelet> and using app packages with pagelets. I was excited to read about these new features.

Great to see your name still associated with the Portal! :-)
