Workday Release 2022R1 Coming March 12

The first of Workday's two major releases in 2022 of enhancements and new functionality is scheduled to move to production on Saturday, March 12, from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. Workday will be unavailable during the maintenance period.

Many of the changes coming in this release are either subtle or operate behind the scenes and will not be immediately noticeable. The OTDI team is currently evaluating the release to determine what additional impacts there may be. A Workday 2022R1 job aid is available in the Administrative Resource Center where more noticeable system changes will be explained in more detail as they are evaluated (

As with the monthly and quarterly planned maintenance communicated throughout the year, Kronos and external dormakaba time clocks will be available during the maintenance, but employees using Workday to clock in and out should enter their hours once Workday is available again.
