Global Favorites • Create favorites for the pages you use most often. • These favorites can be accessed from all environments, unlike the delivered favorites. • You can choose to open in same window or a new tab. • Favorites can be grouped together in categories and sub-categories. PS Utilities Toolbar • This is a toolbar which is visible when in PeopleSoft. • It contains a number of features which can be turned on/off as you wish. One Click Tracing • Turn on/off PeopleCode and SQL tracing at the click of a button. CTRL + J Information • Get the most important CTRL + J information by clicking an icon in the toolbar. Field Inspector • Use the field inspector to find the name of records and fields behind the pages. Search Page Features • Auto Correct History – the Correct History option will be selected on search pages by default. • Auto Advanced Search – some search pages have Basic Search by default, which means you have to click the Advanced Search button to be able to search by more parameters, this option will always bring up the Advanced Search options. New Window • Click to open another PeopleSoft window in your browser. Page Tabs • Some components have so many tabs that you can’t see them all without scrolling through by clicking the arrow icons. • Page Tabs provides quick links to all the pages in a component from the toolbar.

Login Page Features • Quick Logins will save your username/password combinations which allows you to log in with a click of the mouse • Web Directives allows you to reload and view the web profile, view session properties and purge the web server cache via the toolbar on login pages (you must know the web profile password to use these features).

  • (2017-07-20) German Rios: Facilita el logueo entre distintos ambientes. En mi caso el (ctrl + j) me funciona con (ctrl+shift +j), creo que por eso esta funcionalidad no funciona. Seria bueno solucionar esto.

  • (2016-07-20) Hau Nguyen: I like this Very Useful

  • (2013-10-16) Graham Smith: Very helpful productivity tool for developers and analysts working in PeopleSoft systems. Top job! Thanks.
  • (2013-08-12) I find this add-on very useful. I had given up marking favourites because they were lost when moving to a new environment. Now I can easily access my favourite pages from any environment. I also particularly like being able to switch on the record/fieldname display when hovering over a field on a page.
  • (2013-07-23) Wouter de Bruin: This has great potential; well done, these two features are my favourites: - A button to show record + fieldname (similar as page information) - Always have 'correct history' on.
  • (2013-07-16) Prateek Parasar: Its kind of essential if you use PeopleSoft on regular basis.
  • (2013-07-05) I loved it. It is really useful tool. Every time you go from one project to another I had to recreate my navigation shortcuts. This allows me to not have to do that anymore! Thank you.

    Where does the SQL/Peoplecode trace write its output?
  • (2020-06-17, v:3.3.0) David Norman: Sign-in as
    When I use a Campus Solutions sign-in as link I can't sign into peoplesoft with the PS Utilities extension turned on. However by toggling it off I can sign-in as someone else and then turn it back on and everything works like normal. It seems to have happen roughly the same time as our most recent tools update, although I cant say 100% that was the culprit. We've just move to PS tools 8.57.14. Please let me know if you need any more information.
  • (2020-03-29, v:3.3.0) David Vandiver: Trace Settings Remain On
    When I use PSUtilities, and turn on Trace via the Utility, I get more trace settings (and a larger file) than is needed. Then, when I turn Trace back off with PSUtilities, I continue to get a trace file, with a setting that doesn't assist me anyhow. I have to log off and back on to reset to "no trace". The trace lines that appear to be showing are things like start, branch, fetch, and push. To recap: there appears to be two issues: 1) When you turn on the trace, unnecessary trace settings are set, though not set by me via the PSUtility options page. 2) When you turn off the trace, it keeps tracing the unnecessary items spoken about. We are on Tools 8.57.08, HCM 9.2 PUM 32.
  • (2020-02-20, v:3.3.0) aditya malik: Page Tab Label not displaying for Fluid Pages
    Page Tabs menu displaying without label of the tabs even if there are links to all the pages at the bottom of the page in case of Fluid Pages. For classic pages it is working fine. Please check.
  • (2020-02-12, v:3.3.0) Kevin Brown: Adding Queries as Favorites
    Is there a way to add Query Names as Favorites? It appears that within the extension, the "Servlet" is limited to "psp", where I believe we would need "psc" for queries. Even if I manually update the Servlet using the Manage Favorites option, and pass a query name as a parameter using "/q/?ICAction=ICQryNameURL=MY_QUERY_NAME", I am unable to get the favorite to navigate to a specific query. Is this an incorrect configuration, or is the Extension currently unable to navigate directly to specific queries? If it's not a current feature, is it something you'd consider?
  • (2020-02-04, v:3.3.0) Other Business: trace options problem
    Dear Developer, When I switch on the trace option in PSUtilities with all SQL Trace Options switched off, it does actually trace "Trace SQL Statement (1)" as in PeopleTools - Utilities - Debug - Trace SQL. I can tell, because that option is ticked (in PeopleSoft browser) after I switch on tracing without any SQL Trace Options in PSUtilities (and I had un-ticked it before). Is there a way of keeping the "Trace SQL Statement (1)" un-ticked when switching on trace in PSUtilities? Many thanks, Bart
  • (2019-10-30, v:3.3.0) Robin Mitchell: Menu Collapse Delay
    Would it be possible to implement a Menu collapse delay? Something like 0.5 to 0.75 of a second? When navigating favorites the menus collapse immediately and a little delay would be helpful is all. Great job otherwise!
  • (2019-10-15, v:3.3.0) New Spark: Restore Quick Login Feature
    Please Restore Quick Login Feature
  • (2019-09-05, v:3.3.0) Jason Roza: Please restore the quick login feature!!
    Please restore the quick login feature!!
  • (2019-09-03, v:3.3.0) Rick Allen: Quick Log In Functionality
    Like hundreds of other users, I too, use the Quick Log In feature regularly during implementations. It is so quick to set up multiple users to test different securities. When limited to Chrome security, the list doesn't pop-up regularly to create new users and is cumbersome to remember and remove the old users. this was a real blow to an absolutely fantastic extension. I show all my users how it works and saves them time in the work they do. Please bring it back - perhaps with some parameter adjustments that would allow it in non-production environments.
  • (2019-09-03, v:3.3.0) Lorraine: Quick Login Feature
    I use the quick login feature everyday. please bring it back.
  • (2019-09-02, v:3.3.0) April Black: Quick Login Feature
    Please bring back the quick login feature.
  • (2019-08-30, v:3.3.0) Andy Clark: Please bring back the Quick Login feature.
    Please bring back the Quick Login feature. Chrome saving password is blocked by GPO. Lack of this has nullified this plug-in.
  • (2019-08-30, v:3.3.0) Sean Hardeo: Removed Quick Logins feature
    Hi Uffe, extension is awesome. I use everyday, but you just removed one the best features; the quick login. instead of removing feature completely, can you give users like myself choice to use or not.
  • (2019-08-30, v:3.3.0) Scott Doyle: Quick Login
    Please restore the quick login. Was incredibly useful for developers and QA team.
  • (2019-08-29, v:3.3.0) DelVon Bouwhuis: Quick Login support
    Please restore the quick login feature!! It is way better than chrome's password save feature and my computer is in a lab behind many firewalls. I am not worried about the security implications for my test environments. When I use the computer in other locations or in ways that it is a security concern I do not use the quick login feature. I think you can see by the comments posted that this is one of your most liked features.
