PeopleSoft Finance – Unavailable Friday May 17 to Monday, May 20

PeopleSoft Finance will be unavailable from 5:00 pm on Friday, May 17 until 8:00 am on Monday, May 20, for a scheduled upgrade. For any questions regarding the PeopleSoft Finance upgrade or the new features, please call the CTS Service Desk or submit a help ticket through the CTS Team Dynamix site.

Below are some items to note regarding the PeopleSoft Finance upgrade:

  • PeopleTools 8.60 will have a new look and feel. Please view this short video for highlights of the updates.
  • Grid/Page personalization will be lost. Some users have specific columns displayed and/or ordered a particular way and want everything displayed the same way after the upgrade. In that case, CTS suggests clicking the Personalize link in the top left-hand corner of the grid (see below) and taking a screenshot of the setup for reference so you can edit your personalizations after the update.

  • One of the key changes in PeopleTools 8.60 is the introduction of a new search function. See this short video for an example of the new PeopleTools 8.60 Search Pages.
  • As a result of the new search functionality, any existing saved searches will not work after the upgrade and must be recreated. CTS suggests taking a screenshot of any saved searches to use for reference to recreate the searches after the update. There are many pages that have these: General Ledger and Vouchers are the most heavily utilized.
