Subject

PS Query Preparation for Payroll System Upgrade

Purpose

To notify PS Query and PayServ users that the upgraded version of PS Query will be available in the Training Sandbox  for a limited period of time.  PayServ production, currently available in the Sandbox, will be removed from the Sandbox during this time period.

Affected Employees

All PS Query and PayServ users who use the current PayServ production Sandbox for training.

Effective Date(s)

August 10, 2009.

Background

Per Payroll Bulletin No. 760, PS Query users have renamed queries that will be needed after the PeopleSoft upgrade to version 8.9 with a Q89 prefix.  The PS Query Sandbox will provide an opportunity for users to become familiar with the changes in PS Query and to test their renamed queries.

OSC Actions

OSC will add the PS Query application to the Sandbox on August 10, 2009.  It will remain available until September 8, 2009.  Queries that were renamed prior to the March 3, 2009 migration will be included in the Sandbox.  The data in the Sandbox will be as of March 3, 2009.  Please note that more recent data will not be included in query results.  Queries that were renamed after 3/3/09 will be included in the final migration before the upgrade go-live date.

The Sandbox will not be available on August 7-9, 2009 to allow for the PS Query application to be loaded into the Sandbox.

The Upgraded PS Query Training Guide is accessible from the PS Query bulletin board.  A presentation regarding the navigational changes in PS Query is available for on-demand viewing from Mediasite.

Agency Actions

PS Query users are encouraged to explore the Sandbox to become familiar with the navigational changes in PS Query and test their renamed queries.
