HCM PeopleTools 8.54 Upgrade


The Human Capital Management (HCM) PeopleSoft upgrade to PeopleTool 8.54 is a California State University (CSU) directed project and timeline. PeopleTools provides the framework for the look and design of pages in PeopleSoft. This upgrade to version 8.54 includes the introduction of the Fluid User Interface which allows for the creation of fully responsive and modern looking pages.

For CSU, Chico users, this means that pages may have a slightly different look. Functionality of pages should not change in this upgrade. The most noticeable page display difference with this upgrade is the look of the login page.


PeopleSoft will be down beginning Friday, February 12, 2016 at 5pm and will be back up no later than 6am on Monday, February 15, 2016.
