Description

Success Factors and our payroll systems are currently unavailable to make the changes that will enable the University to pay ALs in a different way as of October 2021. SuccessFactors will be accessible to all staff again as of Monday 4 October (subject to successful completion of system changes). There are direct links to accessing your payslips using an alternative route in the 'Spotlight' sections of TutorHome and OULife. The People Hub and Staff Payments teams can also be contacted in the usual manner.

Description

We are switching off TLS (Transport Layer Security) versions 1.0 and 1.1 at the server operating system level on the below date. This will impact Windows applications in live and training environments. TLS provides communications security over a network. Most of the university’s applications are already using the newer version 1.2.
