Releasing the features: Workday 2024 R1 coming on March 9

It is already time for the first bi-annual release of upgrades designed to increase functionality and enhance the user experience. Workday’s spring release, known as 2024 R1, will come out on the weekend of March 9-10, 2024.  Learn about what changes you can expect when the release of the features arrives.

What to expect:

Twice a year, in March and September, Workday provides an upgrade to the latest available feature releases.  The next release, on March 9, 2024, has hundreds of feature enhancements designed to improve the way you work through your day.

Expect Improvements and Enhancements*

Here are two examples of improvements we expect that you’ll find with Workday after the release of the features.

  1. Workday Inbox Update

Changes are coming to your Workday Inbox.  The new “My Tasks” inbox allows for a more streamlined experience for users who have large amounts of action items within their inbox.  New features include:

  • Search capability, including saved searches and advanced searches.
  • The ability to sort items in your inbox.
  • Bulk Approval for eligible items.
  • The ability to manage delegations from your inbox.

To help you prepare for the new and updated Workday features, two change network meetings are scheduled on March 7th, 2024. The same topics and material will be covered in each meeting. Please make an effort to attend on this day at the time that is most convenient for you.
