Modify myPers home page to make searches easier

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Airmen using myPers have multiple role options available to help them locate the information they need faster and easier.

When users log in, the system takes them to a default page attached to their authentication credentials (i.e., active duty, Air Force Reserve, Air National Guard, retiree or civilian employee). However, there may be times when users need to stay in tune with areas outside their current status. For example, a civilian who is discussing force management programs with an active-duty member may need to access the force management information for officer or enlisted personnel.

“Users who frequently need to access areas other than their current status might consider changing their default page,” said Thomas Oates, the knowledge management operations branch chief.

Oates explained that users have two options to view different role-based information. They can navigate to the alternate area using the top menu bars and select the link for the page containing the information they need, or they can override the system detection and set their home page to the one they prefer. This can be done though the “Change My Default Home Page” link on the upper right hand corner of the page.
