BlueSky > 11.19 - BlueSky Training Toolkits Now Available
Dear DePaul Faculty and Staff,
The transition of DePaul’s human resources and finance applications from PeopleSoft to BlueSky (Oracle Cloud) is getting close!
We now have role-specific training toolkits available to give you a preview of the system and to help you start to feel comfortable with BlueSky’s features and processes by the time you return from Winter Break on Jan. 4, 2021.These role-specific training toolkits can be found on the BlueSky website. Each toolkit contains several videos specific to different processes and functions within BlueSky. (Note: New training videos are being added every day to these toolkits.) Feel free to explore any toolkit you're interested in seeing to get a preview of the new system. At a minimum, though, we recommend that employees and managers explore the training videos listed below.Important BlueSky Training Videos to View before Jan. 4, 2021:Note: These videos are visual only; there is no audio.
Clarification about Historical Pay Stubs:We also wanted to offer a clarification about historical pay stubs from PeopleSoft. Pay stubs that are currently in PeopleSoft will be unavailable beginning Dec. 27. You will be able to view pay stubs in BlueSky for payments issued in 2021 and beyond when the new system is available.
If you would like a copy of any of your past pay stubs in PeopleSoft, you will need to print and/or download and save them before this function is turned off in PeopleSoft on Dec. 27.
DePaul’s Payroll Team suggests that employees download/save a copy of the final paycheck stub from each calendar year as this will show wages and deductions for each calendar year. (Unfortunately, there is not a batch download capability, so you will need to print and/or download and save any past pay stubs you want for future reference.)Instructions to download and save historical PeopleSoft paycheck stubs:
Note: Be sure to check out recent updates about BlueSky, including deadlines that are important for every employee at DePaul.
If you have any questions about BlueSky, we invite you to an upcoming virtual BlueSky Drop-in Session that take place on Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m.; click here for details about these sessions. You can also email the BlueSky Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you again for all of your efforts to learn more and get prepared for BlueSky! This new system will deliver data faster and make administrative processes more efficient—both of which directly impact our purpose at DePaul: supporting student success.
Sincerely,The BlueSky Team
