Time-Saving Tips From Jean Munro

Jean Munro is happy about our upcoming move to ctcLink. Here’s a bit of what she learned in the Employee Self-Service (ES100 HCM) course:

“I learned how to reduce the amount of clicks (7) down to 2 clicks by creating my personalized homepage with tiles I will be using most for my job. … I also now know I have more than one way to access actions I will be using each day.”

Woof to Jean! Read more of what she learned at Hear From Delta Dog’s Friends, where you can also view a 2-minute video featuring four campus colleagues who share what they are looking forward to in ctcLink.

In a January 14 message to campus, Tim Wrye urged all employees to complete ctcLink training by January 31. If his email got buried in your inbox, read “Get Ready for Go-Live: Train for ctcLink.” Get started today at Training for ctcLink.

Question of the Week

Delta Dog loves getting questions from her human friends. Here’s a recent one:

Dear Delta Dog,
In all of the excitement of getting ready to go live with the new ctcLink system, everyone is being asked to do training. I don’t do any input or retrieval of student, financial or HR-related data in my job. So why should I take the training?
— Can’t Teach This Cat

Dear Can’t Teach This Cat,
Excitement, yes! ctcLink is a pawsitive move for our campus.

Every employee on campus will use ctcLink PeopleSoft to some extent. After February 8, you will use it to track and report time, view leave balances and more. You may not use ctcLink daily like others will, but you will still use it.

Everyone who earns a paycheck at the college should take at least these two courses to prepare: PeopleSoft Fundamentals 9.2 and Employee Self-Service (ES100 HCM). Learn how to register at Training for ctcLink.
— Delta Dog
