We are pleased to announce that ePAR users can now attach Microsoft Word 2007 and Microsoft Excel 2007 documents to eForms. These files have extensions of .docx or .xlsx. The Microsoft 2007 files are now accepted in addition to Adobe (PDF), Microsoft 2003 Word (.doc), and Microsoft 2003 Excel documents (.xls).

Phone Numbers
The “Home Phone” number is a required field that should be entered in the ePAR when hiring a new employee.

Also, employees can now update all of their phone numbers in PASS:
  • Click on the Personal Information menu

  • Then click on Phone Numbers

  • The “Main” phone number is your UH office phone number. Any personal information updated in Pass is automatically transferred to PeopleSoft Personal Data. Updating your information ensures that HR is able to contact you when necessary. If you have changed offices or moved to a different location, please be sure to update your information in PASS.
