  • Current PayPath Process Future Processes

    PayPath - Custom creation of Position, Job and Additional Pay

    PayPath is a custom module built for University of California. 

    • Allows only specific active employees to be updated through limited classifications (i.e. excludes CWR’s, SMG’s)
    • Allows updates to be completed for retroactive, current or future dated transactions
    • Allows multiple updates to be completed together in one transaction
    • Allows transactions to route for location approval through a custom workflow
    • Approved transactions apply to UCPath immediately upon approval

    Job Data Modernization (Manage Job Tile)

    Because it’s hard to maintain a completely custom module as other parts of our system are updated and improved, the UCPath Center is adding the Manage Job tile functionality to UCPath for Locations to use.

    • A new user experience has been created for transactors to complete job data changes through a guided process
    • We can use configuration to control if the fields are editable or read only based on the action and action reason code as the transactors enter changes to an employees job record.
    • We will partner with you to define the types of job data transactions that should be defined as well as the configuration and validation that will be needed.

    Fluid Position Management

    • Ability to use an effective sequence on position rows
    • Similar guided process for creating, updating and cloning positions
    • Configurable and enhanced position search options

    Fluid Approvals

    • New HR Administrator approval workflow functionality
    • Modernized view and filter/sort capability for transactions pending approval

Phase 2 - Approvals and Additional Functionality

  • What will occur in Phase 2 of Replace PayPath?
  • Phase 2 of the multi-year, multi-phase Replace PayPath project will:
    • Improve the accuracy for processing additional employee job data changes with approval routing
    • Streamline job data transactions through specific guided processes while mitigating data entry errors through appropriate validations.
    • Provide reliable and expected results with transaction changes
    • Leverage the delivered functionality from the Manage Job tile (Pilot Phase 1) to help transactors process job data information directly in the UCPath system with Fluid approvals
  • What is the timeline of Phase 2?
  • Replace PayPath Phase 2 was officially kicked off on August 18, 2023 and is targeted to go-live on March 2024.
