Blog Series Overview:
The Campus Solutions 9.2 Blog Series is sponsored and hosted by the HEUG Campus Community Advisory Group, with the intention to assist and educate the user community on features and functionality specific to Campus Solutions 9.2. To view other articles in the series, please go to the Article Index for the Campus Solutions 9.2 Blog Series.

Article Overview:
The intent of this article is to showcase Campus Community features and functionality released on April 4th 2016 in the PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2 PUM image 1.

The first PUM image of PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2 is currently available for download and contains some cool new features for Campus Community including new student self-service fluid pages and the ability to configure Preferred Name on more components. 

A first version of the Fluid Student Homepage contains the Profile tile that allows student users to access and view their Personal Details ID, Date of Birth, Gender, National ID and Photo. The student user can also view, add, edit and delete names, addresses and emergency contacts.  Please note that for the PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface to be fully operable, you need to be on PeopleTools version 8.55. Additionally, Oracle plans to deliver the Fluid user experience for high-value, role-based users on an ongoing basis with People Soft/Campus Solutions Update Images, for selection and implementation with the PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM).

The Campus Solutions 9.2 Student Center is updated with the Preferred Name feature applicable in the following areas: Holds, Financial Aid, To-Do List, Milestones and Service Requests. This feature is currently restricted to the Classic user interface.
