Welcome to The Weekly Wag, your home for quick news and updates on the ctcLink project.
What’s Next? Dates You Should Know
Many things are happening to make sure Highline is prepared to go live with ctcLink. So that you can plan, view all activities, deadlines and closures on the new Timeline Road Map.
You Will Have a New ID for ctcLink
Everyone will have a new ctcLink ID. You’ll need the ctcLink ID to do much of your college business, including tracking and reporting time, viewing payroll and personal information, and more.
This new ID will follow you wherever you go within the Washington community and technical college system. If you work, teach or take classes at more than one college, you’ll have just one ID.
Once we are live on ctcLink, you’ll receive instructions on how to activate your ctcLink account. You’ll activate your account using your current employee or student ID (or SID, the 9-digit number you use to access the Time & Leave Reporting [TLR] system, or students use for web registration) and get your new ctcLink ID during that process. Watch for more information as we approach our February 8 go-live date.
Employee Self-Service Course Is a Snap
One of Delta Dog’s friends shared her delight with the Employee Self-Service course (ES100 HCM). She said it took just 35 minutes to complete (seven short modules in all) and had one easy four-question quiz at the end.
What did she learn? In PeopleSoft, you’ll be able to review paychecks, change contact information, submit direct deposit details and more.
Who Deserves a Golden Paw?
The clock is ticking. Just 21 working days until Highline goes live with ctcLink on February 8, 2021.
