Upcoming Changes to Web Advisor Self Service for Brookdale Employees
To bring the latest software solutions to our community and stay current with changes, we have been migrating various features from WebAdvisor to Self Service. Over the next couple of months, you will see multiple communications that will highlight the notable changes as they are coming. New features will bring better, more accessible solutions to our fingertips. Many of you are already familiar with Self Service (downloaded your tax statements earlier this year) or with the budget and finance queries. Self Service has been up and running for students for nearly three years, and employee integration has arrived.
Below are the major changes that are being introduced with Self Service:
- Web Time Entry: This feature is a new implementation that allows us to replace paper timesheets for hourly part-time employees with a web-based time reporting and approval solution. Many departments have begun using this solution; Payroll will continue this rollout Institute by Institute.
- Leave Time Request / Entry: After July 1, 2022, all Leave Requests (both Full Time and Part Time Hourly) leave will need to be submitted and processed through Self Service.
- E-Req and Procurement Document Approval: After July 1, eReq submission/approvals will need to be submitted and processed via Self Service.
Additional directives and documentation will be provided for eReq, Approvals, Web Time Entry, and Leave Time Request features over the following months.
New Login Experience
We will introduce a new solution called “Brookdale Experience” to simplify the login experience across various applications utilizing Single Sign-On. The WebAdvisor Self Service icon from My Brookdale on Brookdale’s homepage will take you to the “Brookdale Experience” site for your important links.

What will remain in Web Advisor after July 1, 2022?
Faculty Roster and Grading will be the only items remaining in WebAdvisor after July 1. We will announce the transition timeframe for Grade submission and Roster views in WebAdvisor later. We will continue working on transition plans for Grade submission and Roster views and provide updates on testing, possible pilot opportunities, and timelines in late Summer or early Fall.
We hope these changes will simplify your experience of using critical business tools as we continue to make improvements.
