New CU Resources area upgrade increases portal personalization, sets stage for future enhancements

A new CU Resources area debuted in the employee portal on July 21. While the portal upgrade was the project’s most visible element, UIS added additional features that lay the foundation for future improvements.

The project began in August 2017 and ended in July 2018, and it required over 4,500 work hours. It encompassed two parts:

The CU Resources Fluidization and Elastic Search (CURFES) upgrade standardized development and maintenance to deliver modern user experience for all users, maintained compatibility with Fluid upgrades for PeopleSoft systems, provided foundation for modern user experience and improved stability.

The Campus Solutions, Enterprise Portal, Integration Gateway, Phire and PeopleTools 8.56 upgrade was required for the future PeopleTools 8.56 PeopleSoft HCM and FIN upgrade projects, allowed for quicker adoption of PeopleSoft feature sets dependent on PT 8.56, and improved stability. Campus Solutions also implemented PUM 9. These updates will allow for future redesigns and enhancements to student portals.

New portal design makes accessing tools faster, personalizing portal easier

New CU Resources portal features set a foundation to make the portal more interconnected for CU faculty, staff and students. It was all in service of building a portal that will take users where they want to go—faster.

This summer’s changes added new tools and features to increase the interconnectivity and personalization of CU’s portals. This included a new portal search, as well as new menu options and tiles that all make the accessing tools easier and more efficient. A more tablet and mobile friendly design will make certain tasks easier—including approving timesheets, leave and certain business transactions on the go via your phone. Drag and drop tiles along with homepage personalization options make it easier to access the tools you want.

Changes only affected the portal's CU Resources area. Learn more, and watch a brief video, on our portal upgrade page.
