To help get the campus oriented to PeopleSoft, the Office of Information Technology is offering general "Introduction to PeopleSoft" sessions starting Tuesday, April 22.

While these are not formal training sessions on any finance, procurement or HR functions, they should help the campus become more familiar with general PeopleSoft features like how to login, set "favorites" (or shortcuts) and navigate to key content.

The workshops are appropriate for those with direct human resources, procurement and finance responsiblities as well as managers and supervisors. The sessions will include a demonstration of 1-2 generic tasks in the new human resources and financial systems, as well as PeopleSoft's own online navigation tutorial that participants can use and refer to before core functional training begins in mid May.

Each day an orientation session is scheduled, OIT will also be providing optional hands-on training in using Internet Explorer (IE), which is required for using PeopleSoft. The IE workshops will cover how to find and launch the web browser, subtle differences between IE and Netscape, and generally how to enter and view a Web site.

To register online for either workshop, visit www.umbc.edu/training. For more information on Peoplesoft visit www.umbc.edu/peoplesoft/questions.htm.
