What does the ‘My Tasks’ Inbox do?
With the 2022 R2 update cycle, Workday® has released a new feature called “My Tasks” that provides major updates to the Workday Inbox for the first time in years.

New Features Highlights
Choose between either Simple or Detailed display densities concerning the preview description of the inbox item.
This allows workers to review all inbox approvals that are eligible for bulk approval, select the appropriate processes, and submit multiple approvals at once all from one pop up screen. Workers will have the ability to leave comments or click into the event details to review before submitting for bulk approval.
Links workers directly to the existing My Delegations report where they can see any delegation settings for themselves and if enabled, enter a new delegation request.
By far the biggest improvement to the inbox is the ability to search for specific items. Using the search bar, users can find exactly what they are looking for by entering in key words such as the business process type, the subject’s name, or task name.
For many users, the inbox is at the heart of their Workday experience. If you’re looking to improve that experience for workers in your organization, My Tasks is must add from the 2022 R2 updates.
