BackgroundManager Self-Service enables Managers and Supervisors to view the STARS Learning Records of their direct reports and of those within the organization tree below them. Managers can view Learning Records for individual staff members or for their entire Team. Managers may add recommended training to the Learning Plans, and view the Certification Status, of anyone in their organization tree.
Managers will also receive copies of Notifications for Certification Completions, Warnings and Expirations of their direct reports.
determine if I am a Manager or Supervisor?
STARS defines a "Manager" as the "Reports to" person listed in employees' PeopleSoft HR job record (the same structure used for Axess Timecard reporting).
Who does STARS consider my Direct Reports?
Your direct reports are the same employees' whose Timecards you approve in Axess.
Can I enroll my staff directly into Training Courses?
No. You can only add training to a staff member(s) Training Plans. The staff member is responsible for the actual enrollment into the planned training course(s) from their STARS "My Learning" page.
Can I remove Training Courses from staffs' Learning Plans and Activities?
No. You cannot remove existing training courses from staff member(s) Training Records.
I am not receiving eMail Notifications of my staffs' Certification activities

What happens if I can see the Managers link in STARS, but cannot open the page?
