Access to RMS

RMS access is governed by roles defined in PeopleSoft. Note that:

  • When a person changes roles within the university, they will lose existing permissions in PeopleSoft.
  • If you must delegate signing authority to someone who does not yet have appropriate access in RMS, you must first ensure that they have the correct role in PeopleSoft.

In either case, a request must be submitted through PSAR (PeopleSoft Access Request).

This process may take 72 hours or more so it should not be relied upon for last-minute submissions.

Note that as of October 4, 2019, FortiClient VPN is no longer required to log into RMS from non-UCalgary networks. Read more about logging into RMS.

RMS support is available Monday-Friday, 8:30 am - 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

  2. RMS Project Team

    As RMS is going through the Revitalization phase, we are busy analyzing the current state and functionality of the RMS project. Even though we are happy to help support you on your requests, currently, the project team has limited resources to answer all of them. If you need support and it impacts your ability to do your work, please email the team at rms@ucalgary.ca, not individual team members. Our commitment is to respond to your email within one working day.

    The RMS Project Team can assist with tasks such as:

    • Technical inquiries
    • Workflow
    • Enhancements
    • Bug reporting
