The Access Request online forms initiates the on-boarding process for Professional Reports and Dashboards, Self Service and Planning Applications

Most users only need access to Professional Reports, Self Service is for advanced users and the Planning Applications have software license restrictions to specific roles.

Finance Professional Reports and Self Service have ‘data-level security’ which means you will be restricted to accessing data to your organisational unit e.g. Faculty, Division, School, Branch, etc. If you require access outside your area, written justification is required on the form.

Human Resource Professional Reports also have data-level security based on your position in PeopleSoft. If your position changes you will lose access to data in these reports and will need to submit another access request for your new position.
