I am trying to view a job posting in PeopleSoft, but I am unable to view it. However, other people can see the posting. Is there something wrong with my computer?
There is nothing wrong with your computer. If you are the hiring manager/supervisor, the current version of PeopleSoft (v. 8.45) does not allow you to view 'your' posting. In order to see the posting, you will have to log in externally to Jefferson and search Job Postings.

What Email client will be installed and configured on my new PC?
Jefferson supports Microsoft Office Outlook 2003. As of January 2006, Outlook Express is no longer supported, and is not configured on new installations.
May I opt to use Outlook Express?
No. This application is no longer supported. If this is a concern, Outlook 2003 can be configured to appear similar to Outlook Express. Outlook 2003 is a considerably more powerful email client application with more features.
Where can I find out the status of a system I am having trouble accessing?
You can check via the Systems Status link in the left navigation of this site, or look at the snap shot of the Systems Status on the upper right of this page (and many of the pages throughout the Jeff IT site).
How do I access JeffCal via the internet?
Go to http://jeffcal.jefferson.edu in your internet browser.
How do I request a JeffCal account?
JeffCal accounts are granted by the Hospital IS team. Employees must submit an Information Systems Request Form (ISRF) in order to have an account created for them. This can be done by two different means:
- Go to http://myrequests.tjuh.org and choose new account then JeffCal. Fill out the Form completely. Note: you must be on the Jefferson Campus to access the TJUH intranet, which is where this link will take you.

How do I access JeffMail via the internet?
You can access JeffMail by going to:http://jeffmail.jefferson.edu
How do I access JeffShare from home?
The web address for outside access to your drive is:http://jeffshare.jefferson.edu .
Use your normal campus key and password to gain access.
I have deleted files from my jeffshare but I still get a disk space error.
Jeffshare uses a folder called Trash. This acts like the Recycle Bin on your desktop. When you delete files they are moved to this folder not deleted. You will need to go into this folder and delete the files a second time to actually clear them. Note: All files in this folder DO COUNT AGAINST YOUR QUOTA.
How do I connect Contribute to my website/I've lost my website connection, how do I reconnect ?
On the Contribute Start Page, delete the text "about:startpage" in the address bar and type "connect:contribute.jefferson.edu". Click "Go". You should then be prompted to enter your Campus Key and network login password.
If prompted with "Trust This Server?" message. Check the "Trust This Server" box and click "Next." The Contribute software will then connect to the server and enable connection(s) to the website(s) you have permission to edit. Following the completion of this process, a dialog box should appear confirming you have a new website connection.
If this does not happen, please contact email@example.com for further assistance.
I have a connection to my Department's/School's/etc. website via Contribute, but I am receiving the message "You are viewing a page on a website that you haven't created a connection to." What does this message mean ? Have I lost connection to edit my website?
First take notice of the Address: bar within the Contribute browser. If it is pointing to an address other than "http://contribute.jefferson.edu...", this is most likely the cause of your receiving the message and chances are you have not lost connection or the ability to edit your website.
You only have access to edit pages which are University related on the "contribute.jefferson.edu" server. Hospital websites cannot be edited via Contribute.
Times that you may receive this message include:
- By creating and/or clicking a link to an outside website, (an interest-related website your website may link to, at another web address on another server, e.g. http://www.jeffersonhospital.org).
- A link within your website points to a page on the Jefferson Production web server (http://www.jefferson.edu). Even though it may be a page that is part of your website, if it is on the www.jefferson.edu server, you will receive the message -- as you only have permission to edit that page on the contribute.jefferson.edu server. In this case, simply replace the "www.jefferson.edu" with a "contribute.jefferson.edu" in the address bar, and you should now be able to make your edits. If this occurs, report the problem link to firstname.lastname@example.org and your access will be corrected to point to the page locally within your Contribute website.
If you continue to experience difficulties, please contact email@example.com.
How do I request remote access for VPN or RAP?
