Last month we introduced the new Manage Job tile that will be the future of processing Job Data changes, and will ultimately replace the PayPath and select Smart HR Templates pages. Later this Spring, we will announce training dates and details in a future communication.

We wanted to inform you that there have been delays in the updates of Lived Names from UCPath to Berkeley over the weekend. As a result, it may take a few days for your name data from UCPath to be displayed accurately in the campus directory or in campus applications like bMail.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this process. Our teams are working closely with UCPath Center to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
