CU Resources access restricted next weekend as Elevate upgrade work begins

Submit timesheet and vacation requests, get them approved by Nov. 20
By Staff


After nearly two years of planning and preparation, work on the Elevate upgrade begins this weekend.

A redesigned employee portal will debut Dec. 3 in conjunction with Human Capital Management (HCM), software that simplifies recruitment, payroll, time-tracking and more. Watch this CU Resources video for a comprehensive look at changes to the portal.

Starting at 5 p.m. Friday, you’ll lose access to certain tools and applications in CU Resources until Dec. 3.

Here’s what your portal experience will look like during the next few weeks:

Friday, Nov. 20:

What happens: HR related links go down at 5 p.m., including items under the Payroll and Compensation menu.

Why it matters: You won’t be able to perform common personal tasks in the portal (e.g. requesting vacation time through My.Leave, changing your address) until the upgrade is complete Dec. 3.

What to do: Be sure to submit any last-minute leave requests before 5 p.m. tomorrow, as you’ll lose access to My.Leave until Dec. 3.

Sunday, Nov. 22

What happens: CU Resources goes down at 6 a.m. for system maintenance.

Why it matters: Throughout the day, you will not have access to any information or applications found in the portal. Once maintenance ends that evening around 6 p.m., you’ll regain access to CU Resources with limited functionality.

What “limited functionality” means: You can’t make changes to personal information, but you will have read-only access to your pay stub and full access to other business tools like Skillsoft, Marketplace and Concur. Please note: You’ll need to log in twice to access certain information, because the portal's single sign-on functions will also be temporarily disabled.

Hiring managers, HR professionals and core HCM and FIN users: You’ll have limited access to HR and finance tools between Nov. 20 and their go-live dates. Read this walkthrough for details.
