Peoplesoft- Mouse Over Popup Feature

Peopletools 8.51 provides a new feature which allows users to quickly access the additional information of an Employee/Applicant by just mouse hovering on name of that employee.

PeopleSoft provides the flexibility to configure this mouse over popup page in a way that is useful for users and user groups within the organization. It can be used to set up a popup page that includes employee information such as a picture, job title, department, supervisor's name, and work location. Or, when performing certain business processes, it would be beneficial to have a popup page that includes contact information, such as an email for an employee or applicant. An email address can be associated with an icon by clicking on which it initiates an email notification, an address icon which navigates to Google maps.

Business Benefits:
  • Quick Access to additional information of an Employee/Applicant without navigating away.
  • While accessing the job data component if benefit selections of that employee is displayed as a pop up page it will be beneficial for the administrator.
  • While accessing the Absence management components it’s advantageous to view the holiday schedule of the employee.
  • The email id of the employee is displayed on the Pop up and clicking on which , initiates an email
