Elevate Wave 2: Fluid HCM, portal pages to be introduced in June
On June 11, we will debut a new way to navigate into HCM and portal’s CU Resources area as part of Elevate Wave 2 updates. This new experience offers users access to more PeopleSoft applications from smart phones, tablets and computers with a streamlined look and increased functionality.
What is changing?
The horizontal menu used to navigate the portal will be removed. In its place is a simplified, more responsive way to explore the portal, which will allow you to access HCM pages with fewer clicks.
A new navigation menu makes navigating your way around the portal easier. It conveniently gives you access to go to the main screen (home), the new NavBar menu and search.
Explore new features:
- The new NavBar contains the CU Resources menu, as well as a Navigator menu, which allows you to easily access HCM pages.
- The NavBar menu allows you to go back to recent pages you have visited, find saved pages, access the navigator and view your team’s information.
- When logged into HCM, a newly integrated Global Search follows you as you navigate through different windows and lets you search for what you need.
- Modal Windows will no longer populate when you open a link. Instead, you will be directed to your resource in the same window. If you want to return to the previous page, a Home button will be available. This change makes the portal more accessible and friendly to screen readers.
If you like navigating to your personal information using the CU Resource page’s tiles, these will remain. The tiles will continue to show each employee’s information – such as benefits information and last pay – so they can easily find what they need.
Watch for more details
In the coming weeks, HCM Community blog and newsletter will detail new Fluid elements of HCM and the portal, giving you a good idea of what to expect when these new features are implemented.
