“We just need a simple electronic form…”
….hmmm, but if the
…of course, if
manager is out it needs
it’s over
to route to the
$5,000…
delegate…
…oh, and did we talk
about nominating
…unless the
teams?
award amount is
… and we just
need to have
their manager
approve it…
over $1,000…
“All we want to be able to do is have any employee nominate
any other employee for a bonus award. All we need to have
them do is have them put in the person they’re nominating,
why they’re nominating them, and the amount they’re
nominating them for.”
…oh, and I guess
that all of them
need to be
reviewed by the
divisional HR
approver…
…and we do need to make
sure it’s routing to the
appropriate managers
based on our organization…
…and then if we could
have it update the
system on the backend
and add the pay once
it’s been approved…

Looking in the toolbox…
Let’s look at three available options:
1) PeopleSoft Forms and Approval Builder
2) Approval Framework (AWE)
3) GT eForms™
COPYRIGHT © 2013 GIDEON TAYLOR CONSULTING. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Criteria for comparison
“Simple” – How easy is it to develop, modify, and use?
“Complex” – How well does it handle complex business requirements (e.g. data
edits/calculations, conditional approvals, branching)?
“Complete” – Does it provide an end-to-end solution (e.g. UI, workflow,
integration, etc.)?
COPYRIGHT © 2013 GIDEON TAYLOR CONSULTING. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
PeopleSoft Forms and Approval Builder
What it is:
Simple form design tool; completely functional creation
Things to keep in mind:
 Unable to auto-populate existing data from PS or other sources

Business rules limited to only enforcing which fields are mandatory

Unable to incorporate grids or multiple rows

Branching and conditional approvals are not supported

Cannot add additional attachments once a form has been saved and
exited

Limited security options
What is it best used for?
Simple, unsecured business processes with little or no complexity,
and linear approval requirements
COPYRIGHT © 2013 GIDEON TAYLOR CONSULTING. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
Approval Framework (AWE)
What it is:
Full-featured, robust approval engine supporting branching
and conditional approvals, with configuration-driven routing
behavior
Things to keep in mind:
 This is an approval engine ONLY – no application included (you have to
build the user pages and components yourself)

Significant technical development and programming required to hook the
approval engine into an application

Very complicated configuration process
What is it best used for?
Workflow-enabling existing custom applications that require
robust approval management
COPYRIGHT © 2013 GIDEON TAYLOR CONSULTING. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
GT eForms™
What it is:
Robust forms development framework, with fully-integrated
approval engine that supports branching and conditional approvals,
with configuration-driven routing behavior
How it compares:

Unlimited flexibility in designing and developing end-to-end custom self-service applications
and eForms solutions

Setup-table design to enable functional management and modification of business process
logic, page design, approvals, routings, and notifications, with little or no technical
development

Intuitive page-flow design to easily guide users through process

Rapid development environment for robust custom forms creation

PeopleTools-based foundation for seamless bolt-on integration

Service Oriented Architecture to easily extend to third-party applications and
processes
What is it best used for?
Delivering complete automation for any business process regardless of complexity
