Avoid Errors by Using the Tab Key

After entering data in a PeopleSoft field, tab out of the field by hitting the Tab key. This keystroke refreshes the page, confirms you've entered a valid value for that field, and displays the description of the value you've entered. All of this helps you catch errors before you save your changes!

New Member on the Training Team

Amanda Miklik joined the training team on Friday, August 30. She is a new employee at the University of Minnesota, coming to us after working in student services at Saint Paul College for nine years. Amanda received her M.Ed. in Learning Technologies with an emphasis on Multimedia Design and Development from the University and has over five years of training experience. She will be working with the training team to develop excellent online trainings as well as coordinating online training and engagement for ESUP in the future.

Online Student Data Inquiry training

The Training Team is in the final stages of developing a Student Data Inquiry (SDI) tutorial that may be used in lieu of in-person SDI training. Staff and faculty will be able to begin registering for online training on Monday, September 30.

Registration and training will take place in ULearn, a Learning Management System (LMS) that allows for administration, tracking, and reporting of training content. The online training video and related activities will take approximately 40-60 minutes to complete and will include information regarding FERPA and a short interactive quiz. Following confirmation of having completed these steps, as well as submitting the Access Request Form, PeopleSoft access will be granted.

Online training provides users with a self-paced environment, and it can be re-launched for future use. In-person training will still be available, but it is no longer required. Registration for both in-person and online training will be in ULearn.
