Moving the Search Box April 24, 2007Posted by Duncan in PeopleSoft, PIA.
The other day I noticed a PeopleSoft environment with the Search box (the box that appears at the top of the left hand menu on the default home page) in the top right hand corner. It seems a far more logical place to have it
- it takes up no menu space
- it’s available in all components, not just from the home page
So the question is, how do you move it up there?
Turns out it’s really simple, delivered code and just a checkbox moves it.
PeopleTools > Portal > General Settings and half way down the panel there is a checkbox with the label ‘display search in header’. Check it, then log out and back in again to see your search box in the new position.
