Workday New User Interface Launches August 17th

On August 17th, UR Financials (Workday) will have an updated user interface and landing page as announced in previous User Group meetings. No longer will users see the My Workday 2.0 page after log in, but will instead land on a Home page with a new look and feel.

Listed below are Workday user interface highlights for August 17th:

  • Workday landing page will now be the Home page
  • Worklets will still be available, but will display as round icons. Each worklet will be represented as a different image. Select the image icon to see Worklet report listings

  • Announcements may be created and will display within the Announcements worklet.  These may be color coded based on message content and timing.  Select the individual announcement to read message details.wd24 announcements

TIP: The Announcements worklet itself does not contain any visual indicator when a message has been added, removed, or updated to the list.  Open this worklet often to see new messages added, removed, or updated regarding UR Financials.

  •  Grants Management Reports worklet, Common Financial Reports worklet and Capital Project Reports worklet will all be located within the Financial Reports worklet icon
    • Within each sub-worklet, reports list will still display
