Introducing New PeopleTools 8.53 Changes


New Style Sheet

The look and feel of the individual pages in PeopleSoft is controlled by style sheets which govern how the browser displays the page. PeopleTools 8.53 introduces a new style sheet, called Tangerine. This will be the most apparent change to end users when they encounter PeopleTools 8.53.

  • The pages have a brighter and sleeker look 
  • Homepages, headers, app pages and pagelets are all affected by the new style sheet
  • Tangerine also lays the groundwork for future enhancements that will allow more control over the look and feel of PeopleSoft pages

Please Note: Self-Service Pages accessed through the portal will not make use of Tangerine, but will keep their current look and feel.
