This session was offered at last week’s PeopleSoft User’s Conference. Because numerous conference attendees suggested that the “What’s New” session is offered again during 2017-18, we are repeating it as this month’s Third Thursday Demo. Here is some feedback and takeaways provided about this session:
  • “I enjoyed this session a lot and thought it was good to see what is coming and what currently exists or is optional to turn on.” 
  • “Several HR modules (PAF, Recruitment) are being developed that [my district] may want to look into.” 
  • “I was thrilled and look forward to the new BI [Business Intelligence] tool that's currently under development. This would save me so much time.” 
  • “Looking forward to what is new in Peoplesoft and how we can improve our processes and workflow with updates!”
