Workday Words: Inbox and Notifications
As the single system for the university’s finance, supply chain, HR, payroll and student information, Workday introduces a range of cross-functional terms. The “Workday Words” series highlights and defines terminology that will be found in the new core system. For a comprehensive resource, please download the latest Workday glossary.
There are two sections within the inbox – the Actions tab and the Archive tab:
- Actions – This is where the tasks and business processes assigned to each person will appear, requiring action to complete.
- Archive – The Archive tab captures the history of recent tasks.
“Notifications” are alerts from business processes citing specific progress in the workflow. Notifications are nice-to-know updates separate from the inbox. The notifications icon is located in the static toolbar at the top, right next to the inbox icon, and also includes a circled number indicating unread notifications.
