PeopleSoft 9.2 new navigation

Employee Self Service navigation within the Human Resources and Payroll system has been enhanced for more user-friendly navigation using fluid tiles. The fluid homepage displays an easy, familiar way for the user to access key parts of the PeopleSoft Employee Self-Service system by clicking on the Payroll, Personal Details or Benefits tile. PeopleSoft Workflow navigation is accessed using the traditional navigation by clicking the NavBar icon in the top right-hand corner.

The PeopleSoft Workflow Worklist has been replaced with new technology called, Push Notifications. Once the Initiator submits a form it is added to the Approver's Push Notification list.  Clicking on the flag icon is the way to access this list, formerly known as the Worklist.  Check out the comparison by clicking on the link.
