There are a lot of security admins out there that are going to hate me for this post. There are a lot of system administrators, developers, and users, however, that will LOVE me for this post. The code I'm about to share with you will keep the logged in PeopleSoft user's session active as long as the user has a browser window open that points to a PeopleSoft instance. Why would you do this? I (more...)
I see that PeopleTools 8.54 is released according to the PeopleSoft Technology Blog. I’m eager to get digging into the new features, but I’m afraid it may be a while before I get to play with it.
Currently, it looks like you won’t be able to play with it unless you can go through a full install. Upgrades are not supported until after a patch or two is released:
Today, PeopleTools 8.54 is (more...)
Following the announcement on Friday that Tools 8.54 was available, we dived straight in (whilst cursing under our breath that it was released at 6pm on Friday night on the weekend of the World Cup final!).
At the time of (more...)

Can I make another suggestion? Some of the text boxes in App Designer don’t work like regular Windows controls. Namely, they don’t support things like Control-A to select the entire text in the box. This is slightly frustrating and also makes App Designer feel antiquated.
One of those places is the File Layout Field Properties (more...)
This week we have a second guest-post from Richard Yip. Richard is a PeopleSoft HCM & Payroll Technical Consultant at Santander Bank here in the UK.

I took a nice foray into Equation Engine the other day, and I don’t want to forget what I learned. On a demo instance, I want to go through a quick example of writing an Equation using Residency Data. We’ll try to grab the Residency status for a particular person (in state or out of state).
You can see the residency data at this navigation: Campus Community > Personal Information > Identification > (more...)

I try to keep the content on here focused on the products and implementation tips however I hope you’ll indulge me with one personal post.
After six and a half enjoyable years I have left Succeed Consultancy. I’m leaving behind a lot of talented colleagues and great friends, however for reasons that I don’t want to bore you with it’s time to move on.
Let's look at the numbers for a minute. Oracle's SaaS and PaaS (more...)
After the release and subsequent removal of the ‘there is no PeopleSoft 9.3′ post on the My Oracle Support site and twitter I’ve been in contact with Oracle to find out the truth behind these rumours. Let me share with you what I have learned directly from Oracle…
Oracle believes PeopleSoft customers want new capabilities delivered at a high frequency that they can adopt in a non-disruptive, low cost way. They understand that the model (more...)
This morning Oracle released a statement confirming that there will not be a PeopleSoft 9.3 for any of its applications.
This isn’t a surprise – as it’s something that has been alluded to on more than one occasion by Oracle execs – and neither is it to be viewed as a negative step.
