Manager Self Service

In October of 2019, HR rolled out the first phase of Manager Self Service (MSS) transactions. Departments are now able to use the system to update existing hourly student and graduate student appointments. Manager Self Service (MSS) is a PeopleSoft web-based application designed to assist managers with their employee-related tasks. MSS is available 24 hours-a-day providing immediate access to the manager’s team information. Manager Self Service reduces dependence on HR and Payroll and provides a consolidated view of the manager’s team's data. Transactions automatically update the PSHR database, reducing processing time and reducing errors. Information in Manager Self Service is 'real time' meaning the information is available as soon as it is entered.
