Planned 9.2 go live date targeted for Monday, Oct. 23

The PeopleSoft 9.2 upgrade has a target implementation date of Oct. 18 for both Human Resources and Financials. The biggest change in the PeopleSoft upgrade is the system navigation. Users will navigate through the database slightly differently and view new terminology like Homepages, Tiles and Navigation Bar. The upgrade includes navigation features to help users locate pages within the system, as well as user-specific customization's to enhance your experience. The upgrade to the fluid pages allows viewing on mobile devices such as a mobile phone, laptop and desktop. The mobile platform is also responsive as it recognizes the device form factor used, and adapts the layout to present a more dynamic picture to optimize the user’s experience.
