This is important news as many PeopleSoft clients will have standardised their corporate desktops on Windows 7 (and MS had previously said that IE10 was for Windows 8 only). It seems to work well with PeopleSoft and at first glance there don’t appear to be any broken objects. The Swan drop-down menu (8.50-52) looks a bit compressed but the newer Tangerine menu (8.53) looks fine. IE10 does seem to perform very snapily however.
Kristen Emery writes on the PeopleSoft Apps Strategy blog about Payroll for North America. I don’t think there are any new announcements here, it’s a recap of the value of an accurate and stable system.
The PeopleSoft Answers blog has a description of how PeopleSoft calculates holiday hours during the Paysheet Process. It’s NA Payroll focused but there are ample screenshots to help others follow along (scroll down past the job adverts to view the content).
Sometimes it’s the smallest customisations that make the biggest difference. Succeeder Jez has written up a small customisation that has quite a visual and usability impact for the client. Simply by adding an element from jQuery UI he’s greatly improved the usability of a client page.
Chris Malek returns this week with an overview of the Compare/Merge pages functionality built into App Designer. It’s been built in to PeopleTools for quite a while now, but Chris is correct when he points out that most probably either don’t know about it or don’t use it as much as they could.
Some great guidelines from the bokardo blog on how to design your pages. If you have some free time in your tea break there are a lot of good articles on this site, including a great one on why people don’t copy from Apple.
An intriguing survey into the success/failure of some ERP projects. Although the numbers seem a little negative to us (a surprisingly high number go over budget or extend timescales) it’s pleasing that such a high proportion of clients feel that the end result is a success.
There’s an interesting piece on the Forbes website suggesting a candidate for the heady title of ‘World’s most dangerous software’. One of the aims of systems like PeopleSoft is to replace departmental spreadsheets, so it’s testament to its power and flexibility that it’s still ubiquitous.
