For the University of Utah, making sure that its team has the right tools for the job is a critical key to success. That goes for both technology and training. So, when the University made the decision to develop a series of new eForms, they focused on also making it a learning opportunity to build greater expertise with the GT eForms™ framework.

The University kicked-off development of four new eForms, including Department Salary Change, Security, Additional Pay and Non-Employee forms. The Department Salary Change eForm will allow users to change salary and distribution of wages for the beginning of the fiscal year, and is also designed to be used for other mass salary changes throughout the year. The Additional Pay form will be used to update additional pay records.

UU's new Security eForm will automate the assignment of security roles to employees. An intriguing feature incorporated into the Security form is the ability to use 'same as' functionality to populate the form with the same role(s) as a predecessor or an employee doing similar work in the department. For example, if Sally is a payroll clerk and John is a new payroll clerk, a manager or administrator can select 'same as Sally' and have the form populate from Sally's security, allowing for deletions and additions.

The Non-Employee form is designed to enable the University to easily add Persons of Interest to PeopleSoft. It was also targeted as a training opportunity for the UU team. Using the new GT Training program, the UU team completed 80% of the work in only one week!

With GT eForms™ 2.9 and the success of the new training, we're excited to see what new eForm initiatives UU tackles next. Stay tuned!
