Workday Feature Release Hub
What is a Feature Release?
Workday delivers two mandatory updates, called Feature Releases, per year. Feature Releases may include:
- New features
- Enhancements to existing features, including user interface improvements
- New web services or updates to existing web services
- Bug fixes
Reference Guides will be updated to reflect any changes associated with the adoption of new features, such as changes to the Workday user interface, or changes to Business Process steps or workflow. If the adoption of a feature significantly impacts your duties, you will be notified ahead of the Release date.
CURRENT FEATURE RELEASE: September 10, 2021 – September 11, 2021
What to Expect
On the date of a Feature Release, Workday will be unavailable for a period of hours, usually overnight. You can view the hours Workday will be unavailable on the Workday Maintenance Schedule page.
