- Onboarding/Offboarding Focus Group – Wrapping up off boarding requirements and entering testing of day 1+ On-Boarding. If you would like to help by sharing off boarding requirements please let Jeremy (Jeremy.Pelley@oracle.com) know. If you haven’t ‘got onboard’ with this focus group now is a great time to join.
- Employee Snapshot Focus Group (360 view of EE’s info in MSS) – We are finishing up requirements on the use of Employee Snapshot with 3rd party performance data. If you use a performance management solution other than PeopleSoft ePerformance we would be interested to understand what information you would like to display in PeopleSoft’s Employee Snapshot. Employee Snapshot focus group will meet on again in May. If you are interested in giving input in this area please contact Jeremy (Jeremy.firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Profile Management Focus Group – No update this month, look for our next meeting coming in May.
- Position Management Focus Group – Still working on conceptual designs as well as proof of concepts for enhancements to position mgmt (addition fields, sequence # on position record). We will be meeting to review, once preliminary designs are complete.
- U.S. Federal Focus Group – Had a call with the Partner focus group and will schedule a call with customer focus group in April.
***Important Note*** Focus Groups are open to all customers, calls are typically once a month for an hour or as needed. Your organisation needs to have a current CPCA (customer participation confidentiality agreement) since Oracle discloses future design and prototypes. Email me if you are interested in any of the above focus groups.
