Managing & viewing rows

When opening a page in PeopleSoft with multiple rows, the most current or future row is always displayed. To see other rows, use the small arrows in the upper right hand corner of the page to display one at a time or all of the rows at once. If you add a row in the "view all mode", it will always put the row you are adding below the row you have clicked the "add row" button on. This can be especially confusing to new users and new student employees as it may place the row out of their sight. We suggest working in the "view one" mode so that any new row is always placed in front and is more easily seen.

Access Request Form Process

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) Data Security Office has updated the Access Request Form (ARF) process. Now, requestors must first complete a PDF document for the system or data to which access is needed. That document is then attached to an electronic ARF which is submitted through ServiceNow. Instructions are on the OIT Data Security web page. For assistance with the new process, contact 1-HELP, or 612 301-4357.

Online Student Data Update training

The Academic Support Resources (ASR) Training Team recently launched a Student Data Update (SDU) Online training course that may be used in lieu of in-person SDU training. SDU training is necessary to be granted update access in PeopleSoft. Registration for online training began Monday, December 16.

Registration and training will take place in ULearn, the University's Learning Management System (LMS) that allows for administration, tracking, and reporting of training content. The online training course will take approximately 60-90 minutes to complete. Following confirmation of having completed the training course, as well as submitting the Access Request Form, access to update data in PeopleSoft will be granted.

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