Additional Information

Electronic Routing:

You will not have a paper form. Your transaction will be routed electronically to an HR and a Payroll approver. Only after the data has been approved and uploaded into Banner, via a daily process, will the originator receive an email with a pdf attachment confirming the transaction. If you want to reconfirm this transaction, simply log into Online Services via MyOSU. Items will remain in history for 90 days.

You will be able to check the status of your transaction using MyOSU. Just log in, navigate to the"Employee" tab, then select "EPAF Main Menu". Then, choose EPAF Originator Summary. There are two tabs here: Current and History.

  • Current shows you the transactions which require your action.
  • History shows you all the transactions you have submitted, alphabetically by transaction last name. This is where your "Student Job Hire " transactions can be viewed.
    • Here is where you can see the "Transaction Status". If it says:
      • "Completed" then it has already loaded into Banner.
      • "Pending" means it is still in the routing queue and action is still needed. To check where it is, and what actions still need to take place, click the blue name on that particular row. It will show you the details of the transaction.
    • Scroll to the bottom, and you will see the "Routing Queue" and "Transaction History."
      • When Queue Status shows "Pending" then that is where the transaction needs action. When Queue Status shows "In the Queue," this means the transaction has not yet reached that person and is waiting for somebody else to act.
