|Summer Sessions |
A number of training sessions, seminars and brown bag lunches are being held throughout May and June, giving faculty and staff the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of many of the new systems and tools being implemented across campus.
Farewell Oracle, Hello Outlook!
The next major milestone in the email and calendar initiative happens on Friday, June 1, 2012, when the Outlook Exchange Calendar becomes the corporate calendar of record for the university.
What that means is that starting June 1 and going forward, all meetings should be scheduled through Exchange Calendar. Anyone who has migrated to Exchange will already have their new calendar enabled and should begin using it to schedule meetings that fall on or after June 1.
During the last week of May, anyone who is new to the Outlook calendar, or just wants to learn the system better, can attend a variety of workshops hosted by Learning and Development Services.
May 30 – Outlook Calendar 2012 for Delegates
This session is intended mainly for those who act as delegates for others, including confidential and administrative assistants. The session is 10 a.m. to noon in E2-223 EITC.
May 24, 29, 31
Outlook Web Access Brown Bag Lunches
Three interactive brown bag sessions will be tailored to meet the needs of the attendees, with part of each session dedicated to navigating the new calendar system. Fort Garry sessions: May 24, 1 p.m to 3 p.m.; May 31, 10 a.m. to noon. Both will be held in E2-223 EITC. Bannatyne session: May 29, 10 a.m. to noon, Neil John MacLean Health Sciences Library.
Anyone can register for these sessions via the LDS website at: http://www.umanitoba.ca/admin/human_resources/training/reg/
VIP Goes 7G
When a new system or upgrade is introduced, users often wish they’d been consulted before implementation. For the upgrade of the VIP system to VIP 7G, the HR team first conducted a pilot training, taking feedback from that session to inform the training process moving forward.
Throughout May and June, 400 people will be attending one of 20 training sessions on the upgrade, which has a new look and feel, and offers a number of enhancements. For those who don’t know, the VIP system encompasses many modules used in administering the human resources, benefits and payroll functions at the university.
To view the training schedule and register, visit the Learning and Development Services page located at: http://umanitoba.ca/admin/human_resources/lds/ Select “sessions” from the left hand menu, scroll down the list to “HRIS” and select “VIP 7G”.
For questions about VIP training, contact Trina Kajtar, HRIS Supervisor, 474-7930, Trina.Kajtar@ad.umanitoba.ca
Concur Training Wraps Up
The Concur travel and expense system went live last October, and training has been rolling out over the past eight months. The final four group training sessions for the system happen on May 30 and 31 at the Bannatyne Campus and as of June 15, Concur will be the sole way to book travel and claim expenses.
The best resource for those who have questions about booking a trip or filing a claim is their unit expert. To find out who your unit expert is, call or email the Travel Services customer service helpline or find a list of unit experts on the Travel Services web page at: umanitoba.ca/admin/financial_services/travel.
