Additional Features Available for GB2 Reports
New functionality has been added to the detailed account balances for GB2 reports. Traceability of transactions between Workday to DEFINE has been improved with new drill through options. At the account level, it can now drill down into pooled fringe expenditures, salary disencumbrances, and fringe disencumbrances to get EID level detail associated with individual payrolls. To learn more, download the Salary and Fringe Reports – GB2 Training document, which has been updated to include information on the new functionality.
New Guidance – End Dates in Workday
When an employee separates or ends a job, it is important to ensure that their employment is ended in a timely manner. Using the correct dates on both the Terminate Employee business process and End Additional Job business process is essential to ensuring that payroll and benefits are handled appropriately. To assist departments in making these determinations, we have developed new End Dates guidance to with over two dozen example scenarios. Download the new End Dates guidance.
Let Workday Notify You Know When Your Report Is Ready
Don’t let running reports in Workday slow you down. When the “processing your request” dialog appears, click “Notify me later” to continue working while the report processes in the background. You will be given the option to add a custom name to your report output and select file format (Excel or PDF). When your report is ready, Workday will notify you via an onscreen banner and a Document Available message in your Notifications list. To retrieve your finished report, you can visit your Notifications by clicking on the bell icon or click the Reports icon in the applications section of your home screen.
