ETL92: Preferred Name Not Displayed On Time And Labor Search Pages (Doc ID 2427720.1)

Last updated on JULY 03, 2023

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Time and Labor - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


It appears there is confusion with the display of Preferred Name on Time and Labor Search pages. From the HR side the user’s preferred name is configured. However there is not a way to select Preferred Name on the Manager Search Default tab on the TL_INSTALLATION table. Therefore when the Timesheet Search and Payable Time Search pages are used Preferred name is not displayed.

The reason it is important to display preferred name is because the customer is a University and requirements dictate a more comprehensive preferred name policy with a goal of displaying preferred names instead of primary names wherever possible for students, faculty and staff. This is also to protect the confidentiality of transgender employees. In addition there are many employees from other countries and their legal names are difficult to pronounce and they prefer to use a different name.

Steps to Recreate:
1. Setup Preferred name for employee on HR Side.
2. Navigate to Timesheet Search Page and Payable Time Search Page. Note Preferred name is not displayed as expected.
3. Drill down on the official name displayed for the employee. Note the Preferred name is displayed.
