Workday has two major releases of enhancements and new functionality annually, and the next release is March 12. This update includes a new search feature on the external careers site that allows a split view so applicants can view job details without leaving the search results page.
While this will primarily impact our external job applicants, the HR community needs to be aware of the changes should they receive questions.
New look and feel of the external career site starting March 12. Workday now appends the search filter/keywords to the end of the URL allowing for a direct link to filtered search pages, providing HR Recruiters with the ability to directly advertise specific filtered positions for their area(s). The page will retain the search criteria after clicking into a posting providing a split view, whereas before, the applicant had to reenter the search upon returning to the search page.
As shared in October , progress continues on the retirement of the legacy reporting systems tied to PeopleSoft HR and Finance, and will be complete at the end of calendar year 2021. In preparation for the shutdown, multiple activities have been completed or are ongoing to ensure that business and data analysts will have access to legacy data as needed. See the full post for more details and additional activity highlights.
Remaining activities for the university's Workday rollout include the retirement and shutdown of PeopleSoft data sources, BuckeyeOasis tools, and eReports and BuckIQ reporting services. Beginning November 1, access to these systems will be restricted to a small group of core users prior to system shutdown on December 31, 2021. Please review the full announcement for more detailed information on how to access common reports and historical data using new data tools.
