UWSC Support - Recommended Computer Operating Systems and Web Browsers for HRS People Tools
This document contains a list of recommended operating systems and internet web browsers for HRS People Tools.
RECOMMENDED OPERATING SYSTEMS AND HARDWARE
Use of Windows XP by HRS PeopleSoft core users is not recommended due to security issues. It is recommended that users upgrade their operating systems to at least Windows 7 or higher.
UW Service Center support staff will NOT provide technical support for users that are accessing HRS via a mobile device.
Component Required Recommended Operating System:
- Windows 7, 8, or 10
- Mac OS X
- Windows 10

- 56K minimum

PeopleSoft certifies certain web browsers that work with their products. It is imperative that all HRS core users keep their internet browsers up to date with the latest updates from the software vendors in order to maintain proper security while working with HRS modules. If you are working on a home computer, please be sure to update your internet browser software when there are updates from the vendor. A best practice would be to allow your browser to get software updates automatically and let them install automatically.
The previous rules also applies to SFS users.
