Class Lists

CLA Payroll staff are working diligently to enter fall appointments for returning instructors and assistants by the first day of classes to ensure that these employees will be able to access their class rosters. In the case that units need to submit late appointments, we wanted to make you aware of an alternative way to access these class rosters.
  1. Go to: www.umreports.umn.edu
  2. Type "class list" in search reports field
  3. Select either "Class List" or "Class List by Subject - PDF Format"
  4. Follow the prompts to arrive at the course that you need a roster for
Administrators and support staff in units should be able to access these lists.
We will need an HRIF form for new graduate student employees who do not have historical appointment information in HRMS. This is because new appointments in HRMS need the following three addresses input into HRMS: home address, campus mail address and campus office address.

When submitting these forms to payroll for new employees, please make sure that you fill out the form completely.

Grant-in-Aid Grad Pay Rate Update

For Graduate research assistants hired on a Grant-In-Aid, there is no longer a minimum hourly rate. This is a recent policy change for this program.

Faculty and Staff Spouse/Partner Job Search Workshop

As your new faculty and staff are settling into their labs and offices, they are also settling into their new homes and lives. Among other things, that probably means assisting a spouse or partner in finding a job.

To facilitate the job search process for the spouses and partners of recently relocated new faculty and staff, the Relocation Assistance Program (RAP) is sponsoring, "Conducting a Job Search in the Twin Cities." The workshop will focus on helping spouses and partners learn how to identify potential places of employment, conduct informational interviews, and make contacts through networking. Workshop participants will also have the opportunity to socialize with other new Twin Cities residents and job seekers and to learn more about metro area events and attractions.

If you would like the spouses/partners of your new faculty and staff to be a part of this helpful workshop, please forward the following workshop announcement to them. Have a great semester!

What's New in Google Apps: Gmail Labs

Gmail Labs allows you to try out experimental new features in Gmail. Here's a small sampling of what you'll find in Labs.

Preview Pane
This Lab provides a preview pane to read mail right next to your list of conversations. For some this will make mail reading faster and add more context.

Inserting Images
This Lab allows you to insert images into a message body. You can upload and insert image files in your computer, or insert images by URLs.

Undo Send
Oops, hit "Send" too soon? Stop messages from being sent for a few seconds after hitting the send button.

Proceed with Caution

If you're going to brave the Labs world, it's important to keep the following things in mind about these features:

  • They may break at any time.
  • Similarly, they may disappear temporarily or permanently.
  • They may work so well that they graduate and become regular features.

Enabling Labs

Want to get started with Labs? You can do this in a few quick clicks.

  • Sign in to Gmail and click the gear icon in the upper-right and select Mail settings in the top right of your Gmail page.
  • Select the 'Labs' tab and identify the labs you want to enable.
  • Click the 'Enable' radio button to turn on a lab and click 'Save Changes' at the bottom of the page.
  • Your page may refresh but after the refresh, the lab you just turned on will be available in Gmail.
