What is a Taskgroup?

posted Feb 12, 2015, 10:45 AM by Peyri Herrera
In PeopleSoft HCM, a Taskgroup identifies the task and time reporting templates the system uses when collecting and processing Reported Time for employees. The templates determine what fields are required to be entered on the Timesheet screen. You can find this information in two places: (1) In Time & Labor on the Maintain Time Reporter Data screen, and (2) in Human Resources on the Job Data screen.

How to enter/view the Taskgroup in Time & Labor:
  1. Navigate to Main Menu > Time and Labor > Enroll Time Reporters > Maintain Time Reporter Data.
  2. Search for and select the employee.
  3. On the Maintain Time Reporter Data screen, click the Taskgroup lookup tool and select a value to assign an employee to a Taskgroup. 
How to enter/view the Taskgroup in HR:
