Email addresses section
    In order for new employees to receive email notifications through ctcLink (a vital part of the absence management process, etc.) their Primary Email Address needs to be set up in the User Profile area of PeopleSoft. You will not have access to this area.
  • However, you must add this Primary email address in the biographical area in addition to any other email addresses you may include. It does not need to be checked as Preferred but should be entered as Campus.  Contact your Local Security Administrators at your college for this address.
  • This is important as the Primary email address (e.g. Bsanders@sbctc.edu) drives Workflow and is located in the User Profile (security) area.
  • Local Security Administrators may or may not have the ability to update the User Profile in PeopleSoft, however they will be able to tell you what the Primary email address will be.
  • Since the User Profile is automatically generated each night and is updated based on who was hired earlier that day, best practice is to add the employee record in HCM on the same day as the Primary email address is entered in the User Profile area.
  • If it is not entered on the same day, and your Local Security Administrator does not have access to this area, they will have to log a Service Ticket and the State Board (SBCTC) ERP Support staff will update the User Profile. If they do have access, they an update the User Profile for you after the fact.
  • To efficiently set up the primary email address both in the User Profile and in the Biographical areas, your college should develop and communicate an internal business process that will ensure that this setup is not missed when you on-board an employee.
