    Fluidized! Elasticized! Building the University of Colorado's Next Generation Employee Portal

    Presented by Chris Toomer, University of Colorado

    The University of Colorado's (CU) Portal and Mobile Team was initially excited to adopt Fluid with PeopleTools 8.54. Realizing Fluid wasn't ready for prime time at CU, we deployed tiles and dropdown menus in a responsive portal using Twitter Bootstrap. Building on their PeopleTools 8.55 base, our HCM team deployed Fluid components in HCM. To utilize Delivered Fluid, Portal was changed to a hybrid of Bootstrapped Tiles and Fluid Navigation. These changes eliminated the dropdown menus resulting in poor usability. Evolving, we Fluidized the Employee Portal, enabled delivered Notifications and Elastic Search, and applied industry-standard icons. Faster access and fewer clicks optimize the user experience. Notifications provide immediate visibility for employees to take action on required items. They are now able to search Portal Content, Portal Navigation and critical documentation from Employee Services, thereby providing faster access to content and functionality.
