Step 2: Update Excel Template

Within one week of the request, UW-Shared Services will populate the Mass Funding Update Excel template with the employee population based on details provided in the request email.

The Institution will then update the applicable information found under the yellow header on the Excel template. Generally, the EMPLID, EMPL REC, and Business Unit should not change from what was initially listed on the template. However, if the institution needs to update those fields, as well as add or remove employees listed, it is up to their discretion.
