    Using a Pivot Tile to Identify and Communicate Critical Data Corrections

    Jun 17, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET)
    See how UMass created a pivot tile that the campuses in the University system use to identify and correct data errors that can cause processing problems. The Pay Period Review tile enables campuses to instantly see if they have data errors, and then click on an error to be sent to the online page where the correction can be done. This custom tile replaced reports, manual SQL audits, and email notifications from the Payroll support team to the campus leads. This is not in depth session on how to create pivot tiles and queries, but rather an illustration of one way they can be used.

    Fluid 101: You won't drown, it's only Fluid!

    Jun 22, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (ET)
    A successful implementation of Fluid requires a lot of pieces to come together and work in cohesion. Not only must the technology aspects align but also the mindset of all users needs to be aligned. When DePaul University upgraded to CS9.2 we had the option to either stay on classic pages or take the opportunity and go to Fluid pages. Going Fluid would mean a very dramatic change to the look and feel of Campus Solutions. In addition, to look and feel, there would also be a huge change to the navigation for all users. In essence, we were going to change the entire portal for our Campus population and that would mean a learning curve and in-depth training for the entire user population. After almost 10 years of little change, this was a large undertaking. This presentation talks about why we made the decision to go Fluid, how we discussed and got buy-in from key areas around the university, how the discussions led to a uniform design of home pages and tiles. This presentation will also talk about the efforts that went into Communication and Training and briefly touch upon the technical aspects of creating Tiles and Navigation collections.

    ElasticSearch 101 - What, Where, How and…Why is it needed?

    Jul 20, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (ET)
    ElasticSearch is the tool/process Oracle has delivered to allow searching of objects and information within Peoplesoft. While Elastic search exists within all pillars (HR, FIN, CS) this discussion will focus on the use of ElasticSearch within Campus Solutions (CS). In my experience, ElasticSearch, in CS, was introduced primarily to work in tandem with the Fluid Class and Catalog Search and Enrollment functions. While ElasticSearch can be used for many other functional areas, Class and Catalog searching was the primary delivered purpose. We will look at the following areas of interest related to ElasticSearch without going too deep into any one of the topics: • Why set up ElasticSearch? • What is needed to set up ElasticSearch? • Where are all the pages that can affect the set-up, testing, and administration? • How we have used ElasticSearch at Clarkson. • Who needs to be involved?
