My Sam Portal Launches December 6
My Sam Portal delivers personalized content, university information and secure access to computer systems – all on one website.
For all SHSU employees (Faculty, Staff, and student workers) Human Resources and Payroll Banner modules are scheduled to launch on December 6. All employees will access My Sam Portal in order to fill out leave reports and/or time sheets. As Banner modules are launched, My Sam Portal will continue to grow as well. Please take note of these launch dates and check My Sam Portal as new content becomes available to you.
In the past, SHSU has relied on SamWeb, SamMenu, and Nell for reports and information. While My Sam Portal will not completely replace any of these tools right away, it will provide departments across campus the opportunity to bring some of the content from these disparate programs together in one location.
My Sam Portal is also integrated with Banner and will allow dynamic content to be pulled directly from the various Banner modules into custom channels. My Sam is organized into tabs that contain columns and information channels that are delivered to SHSU clients based on their roles at the university (student, employee or faculty). Extra channels will be developed by subject matter experts across the university and clients will be able to choose which of these optional channels they’d like to display on their respective tabs.
“My Sam Portal will put the power to choose relevant content into the hands of faculty, staff and students,” says Elisa Crossland, Information Resources Director of Client Support. “It will also provide new venues for communicating official university information.”
Throughout the next year, Information Resources will be offering training for groups across campus that would like to learn how to use My Sam Portal. Check the HR Training Calendar in November for available sessions. Please take a look at the introductory documents for My Sam Portal: My Sam Intro and My Sam Quick Guide.
