Workday 2024 R1 – Automatically Available Updates

There are changes coming to your tenant

Workday release cycles can be equally exciting and daunting. You might not have the time to review all the updates that come out in a new Workday release – so we’ve done the work for you!

There are two primary types of updates in a new Workday release:

  • Automatically Available Updates – while these updates are easy to implement, they can create major impact.
  • Some Automatic updates are enabled immediately across your tenant, without any action required on your end
  • Other Automatic updates may require a small action, such as clicking a check box to opt into (or out of) a new feature
  • Set-Up Required Updates – these often require more involved changes to configuration, as well as strategic change management plans

In this article, we are focusing on Automatically Available Updates.

Our experts have organized all of the Automatically Available Workday updates in one place! In the deck (which you can download below), we take an in-depth look at each new Automatically Available feature for all functional areas and explain both What it is and Why it’s important.
