OFM Service News – HRMS Support Hub New Winshuttle Resources

OFM ITS Service News


OFM is very excited to announce a new section to support agency requests for Winshuttle uploads located on the HRMS Support Hub, support.hrms.wa.gov.

Winshuttle Overview

Winshuttle is a data movement tool that enables OFM to upload data from Excel to HRMS through a pre-built Excel file. We call these Excel files Winshuttle scripts. If your agency has 30 or more data updates to process, HRMS users assigned the Personnel Administration Processor role, Payroll Processor role, or Organizational Management Processor role can request from OFM a Winshuttle upload to HRMS using a pre-existing Winshuttle Script.

Requesting a Winshuttle Upload

Visit the HRMS Support Hub > Resources > Winshuttle section to download and complete your desired Winshuttle script. After completing your script, validate your data and send the completed spreadsheet to HeretoHelp@ofm.wa.gov. Your request should contain the following information:

  • The reason for the mass updates.
  • The number of records.
  • Your preferred upload goal date. Note: OFM cannot guarantee same day processing.

After we complete the upload, we will send you the completed spreadsheet to validate. If there are errors, manual updates may be necessary.

Other Important Information

OFM does not validate your data before or after running the updates. Prior to sending in your request, verify the personnel numbers, position numbers, and organizational unit numbers belong to your agency on the effective date for the update.

If you do not see the Winshuttle Script you need, please follow the HRMS Standard Change Request process to request a new Winshuttle script creation.
