PageUp Tips and Updates

As Human Resources continues to fine-tune PageUp to meet University needs, we write to provide some general tips and updates.

General Updates and Tips:

  • Human Resources is able to quickly update permissions within PageUp. HR is working to ensure all users’ permission groups are set appropriately. If you login to PageUp and are finding you cannot do what you are expecting to do, please contact HR Workforce Solutions at workforce@uconn.edu or 6-1753.
  • In many workflows, there is an approval level called “Org Head/Org Head Proxy.”  This approval level is typically at the department level, requiring the initiator to enter the department head’s name or a delegate’s name (which may be the initiator).
  • Faculty summer salary will be processed as a SmartHR transaction, not in PageUp. All other actions that would have been processed in Recruiting Solutions or SPAR, will now be processed in PageUp. Actions that we did not process in Recruiting Solutions or SPAR, such as gratis appointments or the continuation of an end-date employee, will not be processed in PageUp.
  • HR is creating and updating reports, and we will provide more information as more reports become available.
  • Help documents are available on the Human Resources website, which includes recently added workflows for the unclassified regular search, the unclassified audit process, and the special payroll process.

Regular Payroll

  • Every search requests requires an assigned workflow. The default workflow is “audit/waiver.”  If you mistakenly submit with “audit/waiver,” HR will cancel these searches, requiring initiators to re-submit with an appropriate workflow. (View Screenshot for Workflow Assignment)
  • The employee identified in the Department Feedback User field on the search request must enter pre- and post-interview evaluations.  Please contact Workforce Solutions at 6-1753 if you need the Department Feedback User field updated. (View Screenshot for Department Feedback User)
  • When entering pre- and post-interview evaluations, ensure that applicant statuses (Interview, Qualified, Unqualified) are selected first.
  • When entering pre- and post-interview evaluations, ensure that every applicant has the word “Reviewed” next to each applicant, including interview candidates where no additional remarks are included. (View Screenshot for Pre- and Post-Interview Evaluations)
  • PageUp does not restrict users from taking recruitment actions prior to receiving appropriate approvals. Nevertheless, the University expects users to consistently and conscientiously follow business processes. For instance, users must wait until their hiring departments has received hire request approval from all approvers in the workflow prior to taking the action to “Make Online Offer.”

Special Payroll

  • The first step for any special payroll hire is to send the candidate the link to apply (View Screenshot for Location of Special Payroll Application Link).  It does not matter whether it is a new hire, renewal, or data change.  The candidate must have a profile in PageUp.
  • HR has done the set-up so hiring departments do not need to create any “searches” in PageUp. Any special payroll “searches” created by departments will be cancelled.
  • PageUp does not restrict users from taking recruitment actions prior to receiving appropriate approvals. Nevertheless, the University expects users to consistently and conscientiously follow business processes. For instance, users must wait until their hiring departments has received hire request approval from all approvers in the workflow prior to taking the action to “Make Online Offer.”
