Appoint and complete job changes for employees who are recruited and hired locally

eAppoint enables administrators to process appointments into eHR for locally recruited applicants employed in a variety of temporary jobs. Appointment procedures differ depending on employee group you appoint.

Steps to Getting Set-up in eAppoint:

  • Complete the tutorial for your role (mandatory). As an initiator or validator you are required to complete the topics related to the types of appointments you will initiate or validate in eAppoint. For example: If you will appoint Non-Union Casual and Work Study employees for the department - complete only these topics.
  • Update your eHR access by completing the eAppoint Security Access Request form. You will find this form under Employee Self Service Homepage > System Access tile. Your security access will be updated once you have successfully completed the tutorial.
  • Get an RU-VPN ID: eAppoint requires a secure network connection. Refer to the Network and Wireless page on the CCS website for connecting on or off campus. The CCS Help desk at x556806 will assist with this set-up.
