Use this button to access the Variable Data page, on which you can view or enter the variable data associated with the specified administrative function. If variable data is not required or allowed for the specified administrative function, this button is unavailable.


    In this example, this button is activated because the Admissions Application administrative function was selected. Now, enter the data associated with this function.


    Click the Variable Data button.

With this feature, PeopleSoft ensures consistency between all records within a similar functional area across the institution. The administrative function of ADMA identifies the academic career, student career number, application number, and application center.

    In this example, this field's default value is PeopleSoft University. This individual is associated with PeopleSoft University; therefore, retain the default specification.

    Step 16
  17. Use the Checklist Code field to specify the code that describes the checklist assigned to this individual. Only those checklist codes that are associated with the administrative function specified on the Checklist Item Functions page are available.

  25. The essay, recommendation letter, ACT/SAT test scores, and academic transcripts checklist items associated with the Admissions Application administrative function are displayed. You can remove any items you do not want to include or add additional items if necessary.

    Step 25
  26. The Sequence field represents the number of this checklist item in the list of checklist items for this individual.


    The system automatically enters the next sequential number for each checklist item that you add. You can override the number manually to reorder the list of items for this checklist.

    Step 26
  27. The Item field displays the code for this checklist item. The available item codes are from the Checklist Item Functions page for the administrative function selected.

    Step 28
  29. In the Due Date field, the system displays the overall checklist due date as the default due date for each checklist item. You can override this date, but it must be with an earlier date so that the item due date does not exceed the overall due date of the checklist.

    Step 29
  30. In the Responsible ID field, the system displays a default ID, which is that of the user who created the checklist on the Checklists page. You can manually override the ID to reassign responsibility to someone else in your database. The system also displays the name of the individual with that ID.
