RR - WED - Workflow Exception Dashboard


The Workflow Exception Dashboard - WED is a pagelet / portal on the HRS homepage created for approved personnel on campuses and in the Service Center to quickly identify queries with errors that need to be rectified in a timely manner to prevent downstream module impacts.

  • Access is based on security roles of credentialed users.  A query is viewable if the user has access to fix the errors housed in the query.
  • The WED will be refreshed nightly.  New errors, when generated, will appear.
  • In the event an error requires correction to complete the action or assistance is needed from the Service Center, a WiscIt will need to be created for further review and action taken.  In this instance a user will need to follow these steps:
    • Click the checkbox to Claim the error
    • Click the checkbox for Wiscit, then contact the Service Center to submit a WiscIt
Browser Recommendations:
  • PeopleSoft tests and certifies web browsers configured with the default security settings as supplied from the browser vendors.  When using the following browsers, it is recommended to have the following version for optimal performance:
    • Internet Explorer:  greater than version 8
    • Firefox:  greater than version 3.6


1.  Login to HRS.  The WED appears directly to the right of the Main Menu.  Error Queries appear based on your current security and whether there are errors to fix.


2.  To filter the results of the Error Query list further, options appear below. 

Module = Cast net by specific functional group queries

Priority = All queries by default are sorted High, Medium, Low

Business Unit = filter by campus>

Dept ID = filter by specific Dept ID (must enter full alpha + six digit code)

DeptID (like) = filter by a partial Dept ID to capture larger net at the division level or multiple departments. 

**Once a Filter is saved by the user, it will remain set until it is changed.  Upon logging in again, the filter will display the last search saved. 

3.  To reset the Filter back to the widest possible result, click Clear.  All Error Query results available to you appear based on your security.
