Take your first look at Wave 3 changes

In late July, Elevate Wave 3 upgrades will be integrated into the HCM system. As part of this integration, all HCM users will have the ability to access the system using tiles on Fluid dashboards. A select few of these dashboards will also be made available to employees and managers when the portal is down for maintenance.

This experience will differ among HCM users, employees and managers. Learn more below:

Employee and manager dashboards

In Wave 3, tiles for managers and all CU employees will be made accessible only when the portal is down for maintenance. This will allow employees and managers a way to access some portal content that would normally be inaccessible during maintenance periods. 

Note: HCM users will see employee and manager tiles at all times.

HCM Community Users dashboard

The HCM Community Users dashboard is one of the most prominent Fluid upgrades of Wave 3. This dashboard will present users with an upgraded user experience to complete their daily tasks within the application. The specific tiles users see will depend on their individual level of HCM access.

HCM Tiles
Seven HCM tiles will be introduced in Wave 3:

Non-Pay Actions

Pay Actions

Benefits Administrator
HCM WorkCenter

Accounting WorkCenter

Employee Services WorkCenter

Accessing the dashboards

To access the dashboards, a drop-down menu (as seen below) will be present in the portal. Options available in this menu depend on users’ level of access.

Why are these changes being made?

These Wave 3 changes are an important step that will allow the user experience to be continuously improved. In the future, additional tiles will be added to increase functionality and create a more cohesive portal experience for employees.
