This article applies to: Group Management
Every level of the Peoplesoft HR Tree has several references groups associated with it. Here's an overview of what the various suffixes mean.
rg.NameOfGroup.employee – all employees including the sub-groups of staff, temporary, pre-arrival, academic, faculty. Does not include outbound or retired employees
rg.NameOfGroup.employee.staff - full time staff. Does not include faculty or academic
rg.NameOfGroup.employee.faculty - employees who are classified as faculty
rg.NameOfGroup.employee.academic - academic employees who are not faculty, such as library staff
