Access to Postdoc Web Forms System

Appointment actions for postdocs are managed in PeopleSoft/Axess/Web Forms. Departments need at least one admin (Role 1) and one approver (Role 3) for postdoc appointments, typically the student services or postdoc admin and the department manager, respectively. Access/authority for Role 1 users requires training.
