Features of the HCM and CS Databases
Real-Time Data Syncing
Some data is synchronized between the HCM and CS databases. This includes person, workforce, and security data. If you change your password in one, that will sync, too.
Seamless Access to Both Databases
The CS and HCM menus are synchronized. Log in to the one you primarily work in and you will see all of the menus that you have access to regardless of which database they reside in. Need to know which database you are in? From a PeopleSoft page, press Ctrl+J or Shift+Ctrl+J to display database information.
Have Two Databases Open
You can have two PeopleSoft databases open at the same time in the same browser if each is open in its own session. This will not work if you simply open a new window or tab in the same browser session.
PeopleSoft CS and HCM FAQs
Run them in the database instance you are currently working in, CS or HCM.
Run your queries as you normally would. If you cannot find your query in the Query Manager, check the Query Manager in the other database, HCM or CS.
Issues with the data that you see in your queries will be addressed by University Information Systems. Contact them for assistance.
Human Resources reports must be run in the HCM database and Campus Solutions reports must be run in the CS database. Budget Module reports are run in the HCM database.
There may be a problem with data that needs to be addressed by the business department. University Information Systems can assist with getting the data in sync.
