Procedure Updated: 

Some searches result in large results and you will want to narrow your selection criteria. HRMS has built in tools that will further assist in narrowing your search. For this example, we will use a search for UFI codes within the Personnel Administration module of HRMS. The UFI matchcode search is found in both the Personnel Administration and the Organizational Assignment modules; however, the basic functions will remain the same throughout HRMS when searching using the matchcode button.

Use this procedure to utilize the matchcode search function in HRMS. The search functions are available in many fields throughout HRMS, however for this procedure we will use UFI Code Search as an example.

Matchcode searches will allow a user to select the matchcode button in a specific field and enter various search information.
