Oracle’s PeopleSoft HCM Suite has recently released Image 31. Below we’ll explore these recent enhancements and new functionality, which encompasses 13 useful features:

  1. Absence Management Chat Bot: Using the absence assistance tile, employees can access the Absence Management Chat Bot to perform simple transactions related to absences. 
  2. Employee Self-Termination: Through employee self-service, employees are able to initiate their own resignation or retirement.
  3. HR Business Partners: This tool allows HR managers to track and show HR managers for employees and perform tasks such as salary raises.
  4. Development Documents for Employee Snapshot: Available on the summary and performance review dashboards. Administrators can configure the display to show chosen development documents. 
  5. Fluid Extended Absences Self-Service: A tool which allows employees to create and maintain extended absence requests using fluid. Employees can also review approved extended absence requests.  
  6. Activity Guide Composer Multi User Guide: Allows users to create templates that allow multiple users to complete different steps in a process. 
  7. Enhanced Security for Profile Management: Adds additional security options when setting up the profile type content sections. You can now use PeopleTools roles to allow certain employees certain capabilities.

  10. ePerformance Auto-Transfer Document Enhancements: Has added enhancements to the auto-transfer feature which transfers in-progress documents automatically when managers are terminated.
  11. Acknowledgment Framework in Candidate Gateway: You can configure an acknowledgment for candidates after they register. This provides more flexibility within the original consent agreement including audit trails.
  12. Fluid Reported Time Audit: Administrators can easily access employees reported time audit with the newly introduced time and labor tile for easy access. 
  13. Drop Zones for HCM: PeopleSoft HCM continues to expand the footprint of drop zones in its applications. This enables you to add text, links, and other field to pages without impacting future upgrades.
