Time Tracking

Prevent Check-In Before Scheduled Time

Avoid erroneous time entry & reduce liability

Availability: Set Up Required

Level of Effort

Why this is important: This is a particularly useful feature for customers with significant hourly/shift populations that have issues with clocking-in patterns. This will prevent any falsified or unwanted time entries for checking in, which can reduce timecard fraud, liability risks, and overall labor costs.

This update allows us to define thresholds that prevent early check-ins

  • This threshold can go up to 120 minutes before the scheduled check-in
  • Can be defined for both desktop and mobile check ins
  • This also prevents employees from clocking back in after their shift ends

Customers can use Workday Scheduling in tandem with Multiple Jobs to restrict check-ins to specific positions 

  • Note: only applies to workers with in/out time entry methods enabled
tt prevent check in

Attendance Management

Create attendance alerts & encourage timely check-ins

Availability: Set Up Required

Level of Effort

Why this is important: This will help employers to track if workers are habitually checking in late for their shifts. Customers can then utilize a convenient points system to give clarity to auditors on departments/organizations that are points of concern with attendance & timeliness. This should prove to be helpful for tracking workforce & giving managers the tools needed to help augment their teams’ performance.

Building off the Time Attendance feature, Workday introduces a points system to track working patterns for workers checking in

  • You can tally points based on how late a worker checks in for their scheduled shift
  • These points can be totaled and audited; from here, you can report on workforce trends and take corrective actions if desired
  • These points can be valid for defined periods of time and can expire after a year for instance

To accomplish this tracking, Workday is delivering a few new reports:

  • Time Attendance Points for Workers
  • Time Attendance Entry Records for Workers
  • Justify Time Attendance Status for Worker
  • Mass Justify Time Attendance Status
tt attendance mgmt


Custom Enrollment Validations

Configure custom warnings & errors during enrollment events

Availability: Set Up Required

Level of Effort

Why this is important: This is a long-awaited feature!

While many business processes in Workday have validation functionality, the benefits enrollment process in general lacked this, meaning that trying to build custom conditions to stop/warn users was never possible. Many workarounds had to be taken as a result. This feature should finally deliver functionality to enforce common benefit enrollment rules that are in place in many organizations’ policies.

  • Use Custom Validations to build organization-specific rules that give employees warnings or errors when they try submitting enrollment events
  • Reduces the need to “Send Back” benefit enrollments to employees
ben custom enrollment 01
  • Maintain Custom Validations
  • Set up new rules to use on Maintain Custom Validations, taking advantage of new report fields
ben custom enrollment 02
  • New Report Fields available (some of these should spark ideas for use cases):
  • Any Attachments on the Benefit Event
  • Changed Dependents on Coverage Type
  • Dependent Added to Coverage Type
  • Enrollment Offering Type
  • Waived Benefit Coverage Type
  • Changed Benefit Plan Selection
  • Increased Insurance Coverage
  • Changed Benefit Coverage Level or Target
  • Changed Contribution Percent or Amount
  • Enrollment Event for Enrollment Offering
  • Custom Validations can achieve some of the same outcomes as cross plan rules
  • A good way to think of this update is as a way to (finally) configure validations for the Change Benefits for Life Event and Change Benefits for Open Enrollment business processes

Dependent Verification

Managing Dependent Documents & Status

Availability: Set Up Required

Level of Effort

Why this is important: Workday releases functionality to assist Benefit Administrators in verifying dependent status. This allows administrators to track verification status, utilize these new fields in condition and eligibility rules, and report on verification status.

  • To utilize this feature, the following domains must be enabled:
  • Self-Service: Dependent Verification
  • Worker Data: Dependent Verification
  • Use the Configure Optional Fields task to hide any of the dependent verification fields you don’t want to use. Configure options for:
  • View Dependent
  • Dependent Event
ben dependent verification 01
  • Once domains are enabled, the Dependent Verification fields will be found on the Dependent record
  • Fields can be used in eligibility & condition rules
  • For example, you can configure a To Do step with a Change Benefits for Life Event BP to route to an employee requesting documentation based on current status in Workday
  • Documents can be loaded directly into Workday
ben dependent verification 02
  • You may also make bulk updates to dependent verification status
  • Search the task Manage Dependent Verification Status
  • Please note: If you search by Benefit Group and/or Benefit Event Types, you will lose the ability to search by worker
ben dependent verification 03
  • You will be able to take mass actions to Approve, Deny or place the status in Pending
  • Dependent verification may also be loaded via the Edit Dependent EIB

Availability: Set Up Required

Level of Effort

Why this is important: External Benefits Partners, such as a carrier or insurance broker, have the ability to import content that is displayed in cards within the Benefits & Pay Hub, Benefit Plan Selection, My Tasks and/or Election Confirmations. This will help benefit administrators deliver critical benefit information to workers for enrollment events, campaigns or other important information.

  • The following steps will need to be taken to enable access for Benefit Program Partners:
  • Configure security for benefits program partners which includes creating an ISU, adding the account to new or existing integrations security groups, which must be unconstrained, configured the Manage: Benefit Program Software Partner domain security policy and activate pending security policy changes

Composite Report User Interface

New Rows and Prompts Tabs

Level of Effort

Why this is important: Goals are now leveraging the “configure optional fields” functionality that we see in other tenant areas.

This will improve end-user experience as we no longer need to rely on validation rules.
