An updated job aid for "Cash Advances for Human Subjects, Petty Cash, and Change Funds" will be posted to the Administrative Resource Center (ARC) on Monday, December 11 . The job aid has been enhanced and describes how to request petty cash/change funds while also outlining the related accounting impacts.
New spend and revenue categories have also been created to support this process. The naming conventions for select new spend categories and revenue categories have been updated to provide more visibility to the related accounting changes. These updates allow for more direct mapping to ledger accounts for change funds and more transparent description of selection options.
End users should review the changes provided in the full post to determine whether spend category or revenue category selections should be updated during the process for cash advances for human subjects, petty cash, or change funds.
Customer deposit transactions created and submitted on or after Friday, December 1 will have a transaction ID generated called "Customer Deposit ID." The Customer Deposit ID will be like other transaction IDs within Workday and will uniquely identify the deposit. The Customer Deposit ID will be preceded by "CD" and it will be followed by 8 numeric digits. The new Customer Deposit ID will be displayed on various deposit-related reports. Multiple cash sales can continue to be tied to a single customer deposit transaction. In such a scenario, the Customer Deposit ID will appear on all of the associated cash sale transactions under “Deposit Detail” section.
In preparation for Position Control enhancements, a new "Central Review Required" field has been added to the output of the "Cost Center – FDM Values" report. This field will be used to identify whether a cost center will require central review within the job requisition business process.

Find Purchase Order Details – OSU:
The "Find Purchase Order Details – OSU" report has been enhanced with two new additional fields in the report output. The new field names are “Last Invoice Date,” and "Last Activity Date." These fields were added to help end users find purchase orders that have not had recent activity.

To accommodate changes to policy exception tracking in Requisitions and SIRs, there are several reporting changes pertaining to Exceptions which are further detailed in the full NewsLink post.
As of Friday, November 3 , the "Calculate Current Year Retained Earnings" checkbox will be retired by Workday.
Using this checkbox tells the report to calculate ending equity balances by taking beginning equity balance – net margin. Those who still need comparable behavior may utilize the "General Ledger Balance – Balance Sheet Details" report which will calculate ending equity in this manner. Please review the October Finance Office hours for a demo of this change.
The "Delegation History - OSU" report date filters have been updated for a better reporting experience. When the user opens the report, on the "Delegation by Month" tab, the "User Input Month" field is updated with the current month. On the "Delegation by Date Range" tab, the "Date Range" field is updated with first day of the current month and current date. The user can select the dates based on their requirements from the filter icon as needed.
Report Enhancements: Credit Card Transactions – OSU and Find Credit Cards – OSU:
The "Credit Card Transactions – OSU" and "Find Credit Cards – OSU" have been enhanced with two additional fields.

Additionally the field "Corporate Credit Card Billing Account" has been relocated after the "PCard Cost Center" column.

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.

Cost Center Managers and Service Centers have a responsibility to ensure the appropriate spend category is used on all transactions.
Pay special care to non-catalog requests with items with a useful life of one or more years that are over the greater than $5,000 threshold and ensure an appropriate trackable spend category is used; otherwise, the transaction will not route for registration. The "Spend Categories – FDM Values" report can be run with a filter on "Spend Category is Trackable" to identify trackable spend categories.
It is recommended to run "Find Supplier Invoice Details – OSU" monthly for your CC/CCH with a Line Spend Category Hierarchy of "Non-Trackable" to review for any greater than $5,000 missed items that need to be manually registered.
It is also recommended to run "Find Expense Report Details – OSU" monthly for your CC/CCH to review for any greater than $5,000 missed items that need to be manually registered.
