Question: I need to sign up for training. Where can I register for a course?

To access eLearning, once you are logged into the Portal, click the gray PeopleSoft tile on the home page. Click on the My eLearning tile on the PeopleSoft homepage. Enter the course name or topic in the Search the Catalog field, then click Search Activities.

Question: Where is Self Service?

Self Service is part of PeopleSoft. To access Self Service, once you are logged into the Portal, click the gray PeopleSoft tile on the home page. Click Human Capital Management on the PeopleSoft homepage. Choose Self Service from the Main Menu dropdown menu at the top of the page.

Question: Can I access the Portal and applications from my smartphone?

Yes, and No. The Portal works on any device. From a smartphone to a tablet to a PC or Mac. However, many of the applications that are in the Portal are not optimized for the phone and will not work on a small device. Those applications are not available on devices smaller than a tablet.

Question: How can I find an application?

Search. You can either click the magnifying glass on the top left of the Portal to search, or from any Portal screen, just start typing what you are looking for.

Question: Why do I go back to the login screen when I click the Back button in the browser?

The Portal is one giant screen. When you click on the other tabs, (bottom links) you are simply sliding the screen to the left or right. The browser’s Back button will take you back to the login page because that is the last page you were on. To go back to the home screen, click the Home tab (link) at the bottom of the screen.

Question: Why do my applications (email, PeopleSoft, etc…) disappear when I close the Portal?

This is a security feature built into the Portal product. We are in discussions with the vendor to determine if that can be changed. For the time being, you can leave the Portal tab open.
