Do you often find yourself manually updating your search category to ‘All of Workday’ when a common search cannot locate what you’re looking for, such as individual transactions?

Cut down on your search times by updating your default search settings in your profile to automatically search all of Workday.

Here’s how:

On the Workday home page, select the Profile (cloud) icon in the top right corner, then select My Account.
