Wondering how changing your benefits selections or tax withholdings might impact your paycheck? Or interested in determining what your pay increase will be with your recent overtime hours? Introducing Model My Pay, a new Workday tool now available that allows you to apply various hypothetical changes to your earnings, benefits or tax elections to calculate paycheck estimates before making any actual changes. To learn more about this helpful planning tool access an informational video at BuckeyeLearn or review the Model My Pay job aid.
This is a friendly reminder to units to clean up financial worktags that are no longer being used and submit inactivation requests through Workday. Prior to submitting worktag inactivation requests, ensure that the Inactivation Checklist has been completed and worktags show a zero balance.

From 5 p.m. on Friday, October 13, until 11 a.m. on Sunday, October 15, multiple PeopleSoft Buckeye Link services (Campus Solutions/Student Information System) will be unavailable due to planned maintenance. This change has a longer maintenance window that differs from previous SIS planned maintenance. For most students and faculty users, the change should not be noticeable, however, there are also some additional business area impacts detailed in the full post.
Administrators should advise travelers to exercise caution when working in the Expenses Hub. Upon selecting the “Actions” button for Spend Authorizations, the banner action prompt and other instructional text should be reviewed before selecting “Ok” to confirm the correct business process is initiated.
Spend Authorizations that have been prematurely closed are unable to be restored to “Approved” status and will not allow Expense Reports to be linked to the Spend Authorization. If a Spend Authorization has been closed in error, the Spend Authorization number should be referenced in the memo or comments of the Expense Report and a new Spend Authorization should not be submitted.
This issue has been added to the Enterprise Business Solutions (EBS) gap list for consideration and improvement by Workday. For questions, contact the Travel Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-292-9290.

Currently, purchase requisitions and spend authorizations are reported on the weekly confirmation email sent out to Principal Investigators (PI) on their relevant Grants. Additionally, non-PO Invoices and Expense Reports without Spend Authorizations will start to be included during the month of October.
