Best Practices for page layout within the PeopleSoft application itself.
o Drill Down vs. Data Duplication

In peoplesoft with name searches it is not uncommon to have what appears to be the same information repeated even though there is some data that may or may not visible that makes the rows unique. In the portal, instead of showing all those rows, we employ a drill down approach where we show rolled up rows and then expand the data under a selected row until we get to the desired level.

Duplicate Data View

Michael Jones 1st Ave Waco, TX 111111111
Michael Jones 1st Ave Waco, TX 222222222
Michael Jones 3rd Street Waco, TX 111111111
John Doe 1st Ave Waco, TX 111111111
John Doe 1st Ave Waco, TX 222222222
John Doe 3rd Ave Waco, TX 111111111

Drill Down Approach

Initial Result
Michael Jones
John Doe

Selected Michael Jones
Michael Jones
1st Ave Waco, TX
3rd Street Waco, TX

Re: Best Practices for page layout within the PeopleSoft applica

I know what you are looking for but I don't think you can accomplish that on a PeopleSoft page. The closest that I've seen is a Tree View. But what you are looking for has nothing to do with a tree.

Anyway, Drill downs are possible in PeopleSoft and are actually implemented in so many of the delivered pages. Drill down on PeopleSoft pages most often end up taking you to another page or displaying some grids implementing what is knows as parent/child relationship between data.
