New Absence Calendar experience coming in May

On May 4 2024, we’re launching several major enhancements to the Absence Calendar in Workday that will make the way employees request and manage their absence quicker, easier, and more transparent.

These updates will change the look and feel of several key Absence pages and tasks, which will impact all employees who request time off or leave of absence in Workday, including Classified, Administrative Professional, Faculty, and hourly staff.

When these changes launch, we’ll also provide updated reference guides in the Workday Knowledge Base with detailed guidance on how to use each new feature and task.

You can learn more by watching a video demonstrating the new features or by reviewing the news article that explains what the changes are and what to expect.
