Here are a few highlights of Revision 3. See the Release Value Proposition and Release Notes for more detail on what's in this important release.
In PeopleTools 8.54, the Branding feature has been migrated from Interaction Hub to PeopleTools along with several enhancements. However, there are still useful branding capabilities provided by the Interation Hub. In a cluster environment, the Interaction Hub will be used to brand across the cluster. The Interaction Hub provides a new Branding WorkCenter that can be used to create, manage, and assign role-specific themes. We've also delivered an “out-of-the-box” Hub similar to the one that is typically shown in our demo examples.
Fluid UX Support
The 8.54 PeopleTools release represents a landmark for PeopleTools and the PeopleSoft user experience. With this release, PeopleSoft introduces the PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface. The Interaction Hub provides some Fluid content like The Company News (news publications) pagelet.
Interaction Hub Cluster Setup Improvements
The Interaction Hub includes the Unified Navigation WorkCenter, which makes it easier for administrators to install, set up, and monitor the Interaction Hub cluster with other PeopleSoft applications. The Unified Navigation WorkCenter also has a diagnostics page that provides
information on the In Network nodes and the SSO setup. This provides a central location for diagnostic and troubleshooting for the PeopleSoft cluster.
Content Management is a powerful and popular feature in the Interaction Hub. Revision 3 delivers a new WorkCenter that provides a simple mechanism to create and publish content. The WorkCenter guides the user through the content creation and publishing process. Revision 3 also has an enhancement that enables the creation of Rich Text Editor (RTE) templates.
WCAG 2.0 Support
