Input and approve time remotely in PeopleSoft 

Due to the COVID-19 emergency, many King County employees are working remotely. Basic self-service functions in PeopleSoft, such as entering time and manager timesheet approvals, are available outside of the King County firewall and can be done remotely without using the King County VPN. Timesheet entry and manager approval (self-service functions) are available in PeopleSoft using the Login from Home link on the BRC SharePoint intranet site or by typing ess.kingcounty.gov in the address bar of your browser.

Log into PeopleSoft as you normally would; you will have access to only self-service functions. (Timekeeper, Human Resource, and other advanced security functions are only available using the Login from Work link within the King County firewall.)

For those requiring Manager Self Service (MSS) to approve employee time click on the Homepage drop-down along the top bar to select MSS.

Please note, PeopleSoft Self Service is also available on other mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets, however certain pages including the timesheet will not resize for smaller screens. For use on smaller screens, you will need to pinch and zoom to reposition timesheet sections to view and approve time.

Additional educational resources are available on the BRC’s PeopleSoft Knowledge Center (login with your network credentials may be required)
