PeopleSoft Portal: Things You Can Do
Graham Smith, Oxfam
If you’ve got any PeopleSoft application then you also have the PeopleSoft Portal – not the Interaction Hub (Enterprise Portal) but the embedded basic portal functionality that comes with every PeopleSoft application. In his session, Graham will explore some of the things you can do with the portal to improve the user experience. Although he will be using PeopleTools, PeopleCode, CSS and XSL examples, Graham assures us you don’t have to be a developer to benefit from this session.
