The Department Administrator role in HRConnect provides a limited set of functionality to department-level personnel who need some access to an employee’s HR-related data.
Note that while the new Department Administrator role is somewhat analogous to the previous Department Processor role, it is not the same and provides different functionality.
In particular, Department Administrators can view and employee’s:
- Employment information
- Contact information, address, and phone numbers
- Emergency contacts and their contact information
- Change history logs for all of the above information
Department Administrators can also update an employee’s emergency contact information on behalf of him/her, should this be required.
Selecting an Employee
To view or manage an employee’s information in HRConnect, an administrator must first select the employee using the Employee Search tool that is available on every screen visible to the Department Administrator role.
Clicking the Employee Search button will display the search dialog, which can be used to search by UIN or employee name:
Note that HRConnect Administrators can only access information for employees in organizational units that he/she has been authorized to manage.
