    Using Fluid Tiles & Navigation Collections to Classic Screens?

    Which PS HCM customers have setup Fluid Tiles & Navigation Collections to reach classic PS pages?

    We're upgrading to PeopleTools 8.56 in June 2019 and will implement new Homepages, Navigation Collection Tiles, and Universal Navigation (across multiple PS products). So looking ahead, I'd like to network with other PS HCM peers who have done this, to compare notes & share learnings.

    For example, we have some PS screens setup to display Related Content on far right of page. We discovered those Nav Collection links didn't work properly until we configured link to open in New Tab/Window.

    Our initial rollout just focused on Nav Collection tiles, so we wanted to hear how people have leveraged different types of Tiles on their Homepages?

    @Bob Laedtke We are currently investigating a limited Fluid implementation for MSS. I would be interested in hearing how others have implemented some of the custom Homepages and Navigation collections.

    @Bob Laedtke Just saw your inquiry on the Quest Oracle Community e-mail. We're not currently using the fluid homepages, etc, but would be interested in joining a SIG as we've considered this.

    @Bob Laedtke We're starting our fluid navigation implementation project as well and would love to be a part of the discussion! We have CS/HCM/FSCM and are planning to go with unified nav.

    @Melissa Simpson A belated THANK YOU for your reply, Melissa! My Notifications must be dormant as I just discovered your response today when I signed back in & scanned PS HCM forums.

    I'd love to get a few contacts, from HCM or those who created your Tiles & Nav Collections. That would allow us to brainstorm with others in the future, regarding new things they've done with Tiles or problems any of us encounter.

    Please include contacts here or simply forward Email addresses to me at: I've networked with PS folks at Weyerhaeuser in the past, when I worked @Target, but they may have since left Weyerhaeuser (Greg Thiessen, Karen Martelli). So if you can forward a contact or two who are familiar with Tiles & Nav Collections, that would be great! I hope to track down folks at other Co's who have implemented these tools, for an informal 'special interest group' on Tiles & Nav Collections.

    @Bob Laedtke Hi Bob, my team upgraded both our FSCM and HCM applications to 8.56 last year and we implemented Fluid homepages and navigation collection tiles but not universal navigation. We created custom Employee Self Service, Manager Self Service and Administrator homepages. Each homepage has tiles that link to a Fluid navigation collection. You may already be aware of this page but I found the Fluid UX Standards page to be a great reference during our transition to Fluid. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

    Nav Collection

    @Bob Laedtke Hi Bob - We upgraded to 9.2 last summer and implemented fluid navigation with custom homepages and tiles. Nearly all of the tiles go to custom navigation collections, with a combination of fluid and classic content. I wasn't personally involved in the design/build of the navigation, but can get you in touch with those team members.
