Payroll Coordinators and Managers

Search capabilities and display enhancements have been made to the Personnel Actions Launcher Application in Manager Self-Service. The changes include:

·         Search by Employee BUID

For employee records in your area of responsibility, you can now search either by entering a specific BUID or using a search screen accessible through a provided search icon.

·         Choose from Multiple Assignments
When processing a personnel action for an employee with multiple assignments that are all in your area of responsibility, all of the assignments will be displayed, from which you can select the appropriate assignment to modify.

·         Display Window Resized for Employee Selection
The display window for “Employee Selection” now has a fixed size to make navigation and information viewing easier.

·         Employee Personnel Number (PERNR) Added
The employee personnel number has been added to the data columns in the Employee Selection window to provide more information.

·         “Select Form” and “Exit” Buttons Repositioned
The “Select Form” and “Exit” buttons have been repositioned on the screen to improve navigation.

If you have any questions, please contact the IT Help Center at ithelp@bu.edu or 617-353-4357.
