How do I login to MyPPM?
I get a weird error message about SSO and then it prompts me to login again?
- Please see the "Note" about logging in for the first time under step 2: How to Login
I get an "Unexpected Error... no valid user found" message when I try to login through MyAccess, what does that mean?
- You don't have an account set up in MyPPM. Please call the Service Desk and ask them to open a ticket for you to get a licensed PPM account.
Settings & Notifications
How do I change my unit of time from FTE to Hours?
- Go to your profile in the top right corner, click Settings, and change to desired setting:
Click on General and select Unit of Measure as FTE or Hours.
How do I set up notifications in MyPPM?
There are a select number of notifications which can be modified from within the Modern User Experience.
Click on your initials in the top right-hand corner and select Settings.
Click on the Notifications tab to display options for Conversations, General and Sharing.
You can choose to receive Alerts (I.e. notifications which appear under the bell icon in the top right-hand corner.
You may also choose to receive email notifications. SMS notifications are currently not sent by UCSF.
If you are tagged in a conversation (such as when using the Conversations on a project record), you can choose how you would like to receive these notifications.
General notifications are those which support the following objects within MyPPM:
- Investments (Projects, Ideas, and CITs)
- Custom Master Objects
- Change Request
- Status Report
- Custom Sub-Objects
System Administrators have the capability to share system notifications with users that pertain to jobs or processes. If a job or process has been shared with you, you can choose how you wish to receive a notification for this. I.e. via Email, Alerts or SMS.
Note: Any notification updates for Conversations, General and Sharing, in the Modern UX, will also be reflected in Classic.
There are additional notification options available in Classic.
Login to MyPPM and navigate to the Classic User Experience (UX) via the menu item.
Hover over the Home icon in the left menu, find the Personal menu and select Account Settings.
Go to the Notifications tab, select which items you'd like to be notified about and click Save.
Note: Email and SMS are self-explanatory. Alerts are sent within MyPPM and show up on the first login page on the right side. You probably want to turn OFF SMS alerts and turn ON email alerts for items you need to know about, like change requests, escalations, issues and risks, timesheets. This will depend somewhat on your role in PPM.

How do I see all the project tasks in order, like in MS Project or Smartsheet?

How do I add columns to the Tasks, Risks, Changes, Issues, Status Update and other screens?
- The key to adding columns in any view is to click on the Columns pane at the very right edge of the screen.
