MouseOver – Email on Read Only Pages (Doc ID 2084673.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 27, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Human Resources - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In the MouseOver, it is possible to include an employee’s email address. Next to the Email address there’s an envelope, when you click on this envelope a new email opens with the email address already filled in. However when you are on a page which is read only, nothing happens when you click on the envelope. The MouseOver becomes read only as well, while it should always be possible to open a new email.

STEPS

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Login with a User that only has Display-Only access to Modify PERSONAL_DATA component
2. Navigate to Main Menu > Workforce Administration > Personal Information > Modify a Person
3. MouseOver Employee Name -> A pop-up displays. The envelope icon, that would normally trigger an email with employee's email address already filled in, is now inactive.
The described problem is not restricted to Personal Data. The MouseOver (Employee Name) is available, whereas the envelope icon is inactive.
Moreover, as soon as The Display Only property at permission list for a component is set, the icon is inactive.
