Where to look in Workday?

  • Manager’s view: Use the Time and Absence app
  • Non-exempt individuals entering time worked: Use the Time app
  • Exempt and non-exempt individuals requesting time off: Use the Absence appTime-related notifications for non-exempt individuals 

Because entering time is required for non-exempt individuals, special notifications will be sent from Workday:

  • Weekly – All non-exempt individuals (regular, student, wage, temp) will receive a generic reminder to enter time every Friday at noon.
  • Once per pay period – Regular non-exempt individuals who are short on time entry (based on scheduled hours) will receive a customized notification on any affected payroll Monday at 9:00 a.m.

Time & Absence:  Workday Notifications

Managers are required to review and approve all time entries prior to payroll processing.  We have extended the approval deadline for Managers to 3pm of the Monday following the end of the pay period; this gives you 3 hours after the submission deadline for your employees.   

Special roles and permissions in Workday
