Great! Good stuff, thanks!
How does it work for blocks then?
e.g. /xi/ui/peopleprofile/pages/index.xhtml?#block/block123 does not seem to work?
Hello Dries Franssens ,
I suggest use block only when 'sub-section' is to be displayed.
the link remains the same but section number gets replaced with block number.
below is an example-
Hope this helps.
Great blogpost Jyotika!
I am unable to get the section number since when I click on PP3Page data, system gives an application error. Any idea regarding this?
I was having the same issue as you, what I did is go to mana people profile and each portlet tells you the block id.
Hope it helps!
Check it in "Manage Data" --> EmployeeProfilePageConfig: PP3Page (PP3Page)
There you see all sections and blocks!
Hello! Thank you!
Yes this is common.
Please navigate to import and export data and download the same.
Hi Jyotika Karnani
Excellent share! Thank you. Easy to follow steps. Looking forward to more of such posts.
Appreciation motivates 🙂
Hello 🙂 could you please advise how to go directly to a Custom UI (ie manage data to update a generic object)?
Hello Charlotte Tomlinson , Can you please elaborate more on the requirement please?
What is the scenario?
Also, custom UI will be in people profile, which can be viewed by employees as well and manage data will be back-end, for which permission is mostly not given to employees.
Thanks for the article Jyo.
I have a custom background section in one of the portlets (My Details). After configuring the tile, the My Details page loads up but the cursor does not jump to this custom section at the bottom of the screen.
Figure it out. It is a block and I followed your instructions above to get the block number.
That is very helpful is there any way to do the same with the profile photos? Since it is in the employee profile, I am not confident about this possibility and I couldn’t find anything
Thank you for your feedback.
I did not clearly understand the requirement.
Do you wish, the click on custom tile, to land on employee's profile? If yes, then when we click on 'My Profile' tile or Home--My Employee File, we land on the starting of People Profile anyway 🙂
Please remember, with custom on tile, we are 'navigating' to the mentioned section. That means, the section is 'not' popping up on the screen 🙂
Hope this helps.
My wish would be to land on the "Edit Profile Picture" popup so I can add some text as subtitle as disclaimer. Otherwise, as you said there is already the quick action to "my profile" and from there change the picture. However, have it as custom card on the home page could encourage employees to upload it!
Thank you for the great article.
I followed your guidelines and it works very well. Just a prefix "/sf/" had to be added to the link.
Have you also managed to create a link to the SUBsection?
Thank you very much.
