Aditi - July 9th, 2011

Hi, Can anyone suggest some basic ideas which are not present in Siebel Vanilla but can be configured to as to make a Siebel Utility/tool and which can be used for valid Siebel purposes. for e.g. someone in our team gave the basic idea that clicking on a particular view/subview the mock ups will be generated which can be displayed in excel sheet. I mean the whole picture of that siebel view will be generated in the excel sheet. For this we need VB script, excel, VB.net functionality.

Hi, as our org crows globally we have run into problem. We have 2 HRIS admins who can access all global data. In UK we have a semi admin who also has limited access to hire, term, etc directly in core system. Issue comes when queries are pulled since her access is only for International in row level. when pulling query for international if an international employee reports to a US mgr , they drop off her query. new role created to hide US comp with no edit access , queries run fine now since we added US dept to row level security, however, if she were savvy enough she can pull in US salary. How can we remove this risk Have not released her new role until we find a solution. as we grow globally we need to find a way to give each country access to pull the employees who report to US

We used ps query in pagalet creation but we wanted to find out if there is another way of using this custom component (charts created using peoplecode) in pagelet wizard. We don’t want it to add to navigation collection but we need as something that all the charts in page appear once users login into ps(similar to portal) Any help is appreciated.

Chris Llego - August 18th, 2008

Hi, We are upgrading from v7.5 to v8.0 but the main problem is that some of the vanilla BCs that were present in 7.5 is not existing in 8.0 and our custom scripts are having problems when run. Moreover, it is very difficult for us to locate the missing BCs and Fields. With that, would you have the idea on how to locate the replacement for the said BCs given that the BC is not primarily used in the Applet (can't use Help>About View). Thanks, Chris

Shardul Trivedi - July 16th, 2008

From what i understand of your requirement, please find the following reply to your query. Once the email is triggered using the Outbound Communication Manager BS, an activity gets generated as per the Siebel vanilla functionality. The activity of Type Email-Inbound or Email-Outbound will get created provided the Email templates, Email server, Outbound Communication Manager component is configured properly. If one wants to generate customised activity / SR post the email is triggered, then e-scripts or VB scripts have to be used. For e.g The email has to be sent to the customer on updation of customer's demographic info. The e-script written on appropriate event(s) can be called. This code will further invoke an email Workflow (WF). After the WF has been invoked, another chunk of code/Workflow has to be invoked for generating activity / SR by creating a new record in the custom BC.

Vamsi - July 15th, 2008
