Workday Financials

Workday Financials is live!

Read the latest answers to Workday@Yale community questions. This week's questions touch on approvals, PCard transactions, journal entries, and per diem rates. Read more.

See how the approval flow for financial transactions has changed. What does the new approval structure look like? When is it appropriate to manually add approvers? Is the flow different when charging instructions include a grant worktag? Read more.

Visit the Procurement training page to read answers to Frequently Asked Questions about SciQuest.

Creating Requisition worktag templates - If you are using the same charging instructions for your requisition or if you frequently use the same charging instructions, you can save time by creating a requisition worktag template, including a template with split charging instructions. Learn how.

Multiple vendors on one requisition - Are you making multiple catalog purchases from different vendors? You can put them into the same requisition for efficiency. Learn how.

Checking the status of your order - This guide will help you find Requisition numbers and view a specific Requisition or Purchase Order. Learn how.

Accessing your SciQuest favorites - You can copy catalog "favorites" from the legacy version of SciQuest to the new version. Learn how.

Workday shipping and delivery behavior - For new Requisitions, the Requester's name is the default "Ship-to Contact" and the Requester's Work Space is the default "Deliver-to Location." Also, the "Ship-to Address" is derived from the Requester's HR Job Record.

Stay informed - Visit the Functionality Updates page on the Workday website for current issues and their statuses.

With the transition to Workday Financials, the copier codes have changed. Please check the new list prior to using the copiers in SCL 252 and the stockroom to ensure you are using the correct code.
