Submitting Requests for Mass Load for Checklists in HRS


A Mass Load is a batch process to assist the institutions with large amount of data that needs to be added in HRS. This document will outline the steps and details necessary to utilize the Mass Load Process for Person Checklists and Person Assignment Checklists. Person Checklists are for Employee level only checklists whereas Person Assignment Checklists are used for Job level checklists.

Process Considerations

A. WiscIT Request

To initiate a Mass Load request for Person Checklist or Person Assignment Checklist, email must be sent to UW-Shared Services Customer Support team via WiscIT with the following information:

  1. Indicate the checklist code you would like to mass load - UWDATE, UWPOI, UWSNDT
  2. Provide desired selection criteria of population (e.g., Dept ID, Emplid Classes, POI Types )
  3. Date which you are aiming to have the mass load completed by, or other timing considerations. 

Submit your request three weeks before the target completion date.

B. Template Review 

  1. A pre-populated template will be provided for your review of the requested data. Review, update and return the template and confirm for the date you request.
  2. The Cover Sheet tab identifies which fields are required for the upload. If you are adding more than one Checklist Item code (e.g. UWCBC, UWSHRC, etc.) to an employee under the same checklist code (e.g. UWDATE) make sure you fill in all required fields (if there is more than one checklist item being added for the same EMPLID/EMPL_RCD or EMPLID combination, the checklist date should be same; status date can be different).
  3. If there are employees in the list who should not receive a change, DELETE all rows for this employee from the spreadsheet. Do NOT use filters or hide employees.
  4. Once you have verified the data is correct, reply via WiscIT and attach the updated file.

C. Mass Load Update Complete

  1. The Mass Load Process for Person Checklist or Person Assignment Checklist results will be emailed to the requestor. It will include several tabs.
    1. Loaded- All rows that were successfully Loaded
    2. Errors - All rows that could not be Loaded along with the reason
  2. It is up to the institutions to review the errors and work as needed.
