What's Changing?

New Videos Introduce Changes to Timesheets and Absence Requests

One of the biggest changes in the University’s Human Resources Management System Upgrade from PeopleSoft 8.9 to 9.2, is that employees who currently report their time and absences on paper will instead do so electronically when the system goes live in February. The change will affect almost everyone who works at the University, except those in University Services and a few other units who will continue using KRONOS and COMPASS. 

Hourly employees and their supervisors who don’t make the shift from paper to electronic reporting risk not being paid on time. Salaried employees who don’t make the change to electronic absence reporting could have time off delayed. To introduce the change from paper to electronic reporting, the University’s Office of Human Resources has completed three new sneak peek videos, including Electronic Time Reporting, Electronic Absence Reporting, and Approving Electronic Time and Absence Reporting.

ESUP Readiness Formal Community of Practice

The IT@UMN community kicked off an important new Formal Community of Practice this week, the ESUP Readiness FCoP. Associate CIO and FCoP sponsor Brittany Lloyd kicked off the meeting, followed by an overview from Executive Program Director Dennis Wenzel and others. The kick off was very well attended: members from across the University participated in-person and online. You can view a recording of that meeting on UMConnect

The community has three Affinity Groups -- teams with specific tasks that contribute to the FCoP's goal -- including Change Management, Computer and Device Support, and Tertiary Systems (IDEAA). Please feel free to join any Affinity Groups that match your skills or interests.

If you're interested in being a part of the community, you may wish to attend the second meeting on Thursday, October 2nd at 2pm in room 50B of the Humphrey Center. For more information, see the ESUP Readiness FCoP site.
