FAQ’s and Other Useful Information

    Faq s

    FAQ’S …

    • If I am experiencing problems, or just forget what to do, who can I contact for help?

      • For the Instruction Office Division, there are two avenues to access support related to PeopleSoft questions:

        • Instructional Mentors: these are the Division Secretaries, ADA’s and a few other selected individuals located off the main campus. Mentors are available to be your first contact regarding a PS8 question or concern. They are a great resource for general navigation pointers and tips, as well as routine process questions and reminders. The mentors can also help you determine if your question should be elevated to the next level, the Functional Specialist.

        • Functional Specialist: These individuals are here to help when a process or report just doesn’t seem to work like it should. Or, data you are familiar with just doesn’t seem to look right. Perhaps you can’t access a page or report you have in the past. Or, a process seems to “hang” without ever completing. Your Functional Specialist will help you to trouble shoot the problem and determine the best corrective action.

    More … FAQ’S …

    • What is cache? And, why should I clear it?

      • Cache is a temporary storage area for web pages that generally helps to speed your return to a previously viewed web page – until it gets too much history.

      • Once in a while, you may notice that data displayed on PS8 web pages doesn’t look right. Maybe, data appears out of order, or a row may be duplicated. Many times, clearing your cache will correct display problems and improve performance.
