While it is important that we receive everyone’s feedback to determine our next steps, we want to be respectful of your time. The survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete.

The survey will be available through June 30. To begin, click the following link:

Invitation to Termination Workflow Interchanges

You are receiving this email because you have the M-Pathways role HR TOTAL APPOINTMENT VIEW USER and may be a user who completes the temporary or regular termination layoff form.

You are invited to attend an interchange for the new Termination Workflow process.

The new process enables units to enter data for terminations directly into M-Pathways. The process utilizes workflow functionality, which generates approval requests from the proper sources before the transaction is posted to an employee's record in real-time.

Please invite all staff responsible for submitting terminations to learn more about the new Termination Workflow process.

To learn about Termination Workflow, please attend one of the Interchanges. You will learn about the new functionality, see a demo, and be given information to assist you with the transition to using Termination Workflow in your department.

INTERCHANGE SCHEDULE
You do not need to register to attend an Interchange. Please contact Denise Stegall at dstegall@umich.edu if you have questions about the Interchanges.
