About Pre-Hire MACID eForm
The new Pre-hire MacID tool was successfully launched in August 2022, to remove the manual process and reducing significant waiting time from 7-days to 0.5 days.
The new Pre-Hire Mac ID eForm has expedited provisioning of the MacID to new employees during the ‘pre-hire’ stage to enable departments to initiate system access in preparation for the employees start date. Following automated system validation, the eForm automatically creates a MacID based on employee’s personal information inputted on eForm. The eForm can be used for all employee groups, except for TAs and work-study/summer students, as these employees already have their MacIDs provisioned via their student record in Mosaic Campus Solutions.
As of May 2023, a total of 843 MacID eForms were fully executed across all employee groups and Faculties. Faculty of Health Sciences accounted for 43 % of MacID eForms executed. More than 60 % of the eForms were executed for hires into Unifor Unit 1 or Interim appointments.
This form can be used for all employee groups, with the exception of Teaching Assistants and employee’s in the Work/Study program, as these employees already have their MacID’s provisioned via their student record in Mosaic Campus Solutions. This form can be submitted up to 1 month prior to the employee’s start date, with the exception of employees hired into MUFA and Clinical Faculty, which can be submitted up to 6 months prior to the employee’s start date.
If you need to request a MacID for a Person of Interest Account for Non-McMaster employees, please use the following link for more information: https://uts.mcmaster.ca/services/accounts-and-passwords/person-of-interest/
In order to use the MacID for any University systems, resources, or applications, the MacID will need to be activated. Please provide the employee their MacID, Employee ID, Barcode and McMaster email which will be generated by the form. If the employee is new to McMaster, they will need to activate their MacID. If the employee already has an existing MacID, they do not need to reactivate their MacID, but may need to update their password. More information on MacID’s , how to activate it, or change a password can be found here.
