application installation pc users
Application Installation-PC Users
  • Sun Java Plug-in version 1.4.1, and version 1.4.2(preferred) for MS WindowsBefore PC users logon to the CHRIS or PVL systems for the first time and use the default Java Virtual Machine(JVM) associated with their browser, they will need to load Sun\'s Java plug-in if they don\'t have it already. Once installed as the default JVM for the web browser, the browser will use it as necessary for these applications and any other Java applications or applets from this site or any other site on the Internet. For installation, please click Sun\'s Java™ Plug-in 1.4.2(preferred) or Sun\'s Java™ Plug-in 1.4.1 for MS Windows and FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS there.
  • WHICH Plug-in? The 1.4.2 plug-in is a newer release and has significant improvements over previous versions. If you have already installed JVM 1.4.1, you do not need to install JVM 1.4.2.
  • NOTE: The default JVM under Microsoft Windows operating systems is Microsoft\'s JVM, which is incompatible with the Java standards, and does not support the functionality which the applications require. Changing the browser\'s default JVM to Sun\'s Java™ plug-in is required.
  • NOTE: After installation, be sure to CLOSE ALL BROWSER WINDOWS before opening the browser again to go to the CHRIS or PVL.
  • NOTE: This is a one-time installation

  • JInitiator:Before PC users logon to the CHRIS or PVL systems for the first time they will have to load the JInitiator plug-in if they don\'t have it already. Once installed, they do not have to access the JInitiator software directly; the web browser will use it as necessary. For installation, please go to Download JInitiator 1.1.8.14 and FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS there.
  • NOTE: After installation, be sure to CLOSE ALL BROWSER WINDOWS before opening the browser again to go to the CHRIS or PVL.

menu information
Menu Information
  • The menu bar at the top of CHRIS screen is similar to the standard Windows menu.
  • The sub-menus have some standard selections and some selections unique to CHRIS.
  • The selections that are available on a certain screen depend on that screen, on the status of the displayed data, and on the authorization of the current user.
  • The active selections on the sub-menus are in black font, while the inactive selections are in a dull gray color.
  • Additional information can be found at: http://www.ohr.wisc.edu/pd/helpprod/menu.html
entering data from a word document
Entering Data from a Word document
  • Cut (Control+X) - Cuts out the highlighted text and saves it on the clipboard.  
  • Copy (Control+C) - Copies the highlighted text and saves it on the clipboard. 
  • Paste (Control+V)- Pastes the text on the clipboard to the position designated. 
    • This option is only available if the Cut or Copy was done using the CHRIS system itself. If the Cut or Copy was made from an external document, use Control+V, the standard Windows command, to do a paste.
    • Note: If the text to be pasted is more than the receiving field can accept, NONE of the text will paste. You will have to reduce the text length until it is within the limit for the receiving item.
  • CAUTION: When copying from Word and pasting into a HR Transaction
    • the single quote (apostrophe) is sometimes converted into a question mark (?). It seems to be those in the middle of a word (e.g., don\'t) or end of a word that are converted.
    • Other special characters such as a hyphen are sometimes converted too.
    • These conversion do not occur until the data is saved so you may not notice it immediately.
    • These all can be typed over and restored to the correct character by anyone with authorization to submit or approve the HR Transaction.
    • You may want to review the large text fields in the HR Transactions you have not yet submitted or approved if you suspect you did a copy and paste of text that had quotes or other special characters.

Creating a New HR Transaction–– LTE Positions

Most of the LTE process will be the same as for other HR Transaction types. Here are some differences:

  • Though only one goal (and related activities) is required, the PD Summary is optional.
  • Some items that do not apply to LTEs are protected or removed, while others, such as Hourly Rate if posting on the web, are required.
  • If there is no Applicant entered, you can choose whether the position should be posted on the web in the nightly automated process.
  • An Organizational Chart is optional.
  • A selected applicant can be entered before the original submittal of the LTE Transaction, or after. If after, only applicant data will be allowed to be updated. Then the applicant is submitted separately for approval. HR staff can then approve or reject the applicant together with or separately from the Transaction.
