About the staff web
The staff web is for all SLU employees and supports you in your work.
Here, you can find different functions and systems as well as information necessary for all staff members.
It is good to set the staff web as the home page in your browser. That way, you can read the internal news posted on the start page regularly. As an SLU employee, you need to stay updated on internal news.
Staff web start page
Main headers on the staff web
Under My employment, there is information for all SLU employees, both new and prospective. For example, there is short information about salary, working hours, sickness leave, professional development, business travel, unions, etc. Under Support & services/Human resources, there is also more specific information.
Subpages can be found in the mega meny which expands when you click on the header on the horizontal menu.
Support and service
Under Support and service, you can find most of the staff web pages. Click on the mega menu to get a content overview. Here, you can find administrative support compiled under various subject headers. The content is divided according to subject, not organisational units.
Organisation and governance
Under Organisation and governance, you can find information regarding how the university is governed and organised. You will also find links to SLU’s various organisational operations.
Under Targeted info, there is information not meant for all employees; instead, it is adapted and aimed at specific groups.
Parallel language use, not bilingual
SLU operations use both Swedish and English in parallel. However, this does not mean that everything must be available in both languages.
Information on what must be translated can be found here.
In relation to the staff web, this means that pages with all SLU staff members as the target group must be available in both Swedish and English. As a rule, information regarding SLU’s administrative procedures and processes are not aimed at all employees. Therefore, they do not need to be translated. However, the target group and purpose ultimately decide whether a text should be translated or not.
An open intranet
SLU’s internal staff web is not closed off to the public; in fact, it is also open to external visitors.
The reason for this is that SLU operations are public, and very little staff web information needs to be kept confidential. Many other universities and higher education institutions do the same thing. Naturally, some pages or services require login, e.g. protocols from various vice-chancellor, boards and council decision meetings, or certain security pages. Webbredaktionen@slu.se can help with this.
Previously, SLU’s intranet was locked, which often became a source of complication and difficulty for many employees. For example, links could not be shared between external and internal pages. Other information could also not be shared between colleagues.
If a department/equivalent needs information that is limited to a certain group, it is possible to upload a Sharepoint page where you can adjust the authorisation settings. In those cases, firstname.lastname@example.org can help.
TIP: Reduce your number of logins
You can personally reduce the number of times you have to log in
Some of our systems/tools uses a login that leads to this dialog box:
Here, you need to leave the marked box empty. Otherwise, the following dialog box will appear every time you wish to use the tool:
If you check the “Fråga mig inte igen om samtycke” (do not ask for my consent again) box, the question will not appear again, and the login process will run smoother in the future.
TIP: Find your most visited pages easier
You can create shortcuts to find your must visited pages
If you visits some websites often but find them difficult to reach, add them as tabs in your browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Explorer). That way, they will always appear when you open your browser.
You can also add them as bookmarks in your browser, if you find that easier.
TIP: Is the information about you in the staff description wrong?
When e.g. searching for staff members, the information in question has not been added to a web page. Instead, it comes from SLU’s staff database, Idis. In order to correct a staff presentation text, add or change a picture, you must contact the responsible directory administrator from your operation.
Directory administrators can be found here.
