September 2021 Workday Updates

Sep. 22, 2021

Workday releases major upgrades twice a year, in March and September. These updates are designed to increase functionality and enhance the user experience. 

As of September 13, the following enhancements are live in Workday:

Enhanced Search Functionality
The search box is now located in the center of the screen and provides contextual search category buttons to help users find what they are looking for. Selecting one of the optional category buttons refines the search to the selected category (e.g., people, tasks, and reports) to narrow down useful results.

Pop Up Display
A pop-up window now displays when accessing a report or task filter prompt. Workday grays out the main task or report and displays a prompt in focus on the screen. When you enter the required information and dismiss the prompt, Workday brings the main task or report back into focus. The feature is intended to increase efficiency when using prompted filters.
