Microsoft Edge and PeopleSoft August 4, 2015Posted by Duncan in Browsers, Look and Feel, PeopleSoft 9.2, PeopleTools 8.54, TW.
The Windows 10 upgrade was released late last week, and with it came a new web browser – Microsoft Edge. Formerly codenamed Project Spartan, Edge is the default web browser in Windows 10. Internet Explorer 11 is also be included with the new OS, but is basically unchanged from the version of IE11 found in Windows 7 and 8.1.
Although it might be a while until Windows 10 gains widespread enterprise adoption, it’ll likely have reasonably swift uptake in the home so Edge will start becoming an important browser for externally exposed PeopleSoft systems within 6 months or so.

So, does it work with PeopleSoft? The answer is Yes, it certainly seems to. I’ve spent a fair amount of time noodling through some ‘difficult’ pages and they look OK to me. I compared with HCM 92 Image 13 – the latest at time of writing – and both Fluid and Classic UIs look great.
PeopleSoft and Web Browsers – The Guide September 22, 2014Posted by Duncan in Browsers, PeopleTools 8.53, PeopleTools 8.54, TW.
The topic of PeopleSoft/PeopleTools versions and web browsers is often a complicated one, yet it’s an issue that every client will face when they either upgrade PeopleTools or move to a new Application version that contains a Tools increase.
Cedar have recently been asked by a client for some assistance to get a definitive answer to the important questions and we thought it would be useful to share this information. We’ve put together a white paper that shows you the relevant browser versions for PeopleTools 8.54 and PeopleTools 8.53 (i.e. the versions that customers are likely to be upgrading to over the next year or so):
We hope that it saves you some time during your next upgrade.
PeopleSoft and IE9 April 14, 2011Posted by Duncan in Browsers, HTML, PeopleTools 8.50, PeopleTools 8.51.
It seems that IE9 behaves slightly differently to other browsers when displaying some PeopleSoft pages, and this results in pages that look a little odd. Areas of whitespace appear between page objects, and fields that are nicely laid out in other browsers are mis-aligned in IE9. Strangely it doesn’t happen on the homepage, but it does on every other page.
Here’s an example:
