Mass processes are intended to ease the administrative burden on processing offices for high-volume transactions. Mass processes fall into two categories:
- Automatic Mass Processes
- User-Initiated Mass Processes – Initiated on behalf of Colleges, Schools, Units (CSUs)
CSU-initiated mass processes now require the submission of an approval form via DocuSign. We are requiring this additional step to improve our compliance with internal audit findings regarding the approval of mass processing requests. For more information, continue reading Reminder: CSU Approvals via DocuSign are Required for Mass Processes.
Mass Process Resources
- Mass Process events calendar – Provides a list of all upcoming mass process events by date.

Automatic Mass Process Guidance
Commuter Subsidy Program Mass Process
The Annual Commuter Subsidy provides a One-Time Payment (OTP) to eligible employees to assist with the costs of commuting to campus.For more information about the subsidy and answers to questions regarding employee eligibility, visit the Annual Commuter Subsidy FAQ webpage on the Human Resources website.
Monthly Mass End Additional Job / Termination Process
The monthly Mass End Additional Job/Termination process will run for all fixed-term employees and non-employees positions with an End Employment Date on or before the last day of the prior month. The effective date of the mass process will be equal to the End Employment Date on the position. In addition, if there is an Academic Appointment associated with the position, it will be ended. This process requires preparation for it to be fully effective.
Non-Tenure Track Faculty Inactive 3-Years Mass End Additional Job/Termination Process
The Non-Tenure Track Faculty Inactive 3 yrs. Mass End Additional Job/Termination process will run for all Non-Tenure Track Faculty jobs that have been in the F-INA job profile for 3 or more years. The reason for this process is to require onboarding when a faculty member is rehired after a significant period of inactivity.
Prior Period Mass Advance of Time
At the end of each month, time entry for the month that is 3 months earlier will be locked. Once a period locks, only Timekeepers and Central HR will be able to enter or adjust time in the locked period. The Prior Period Mass Advance of Time to the Timekeeper runs at least one week before the last day of the month when the prior period lock happens.
Semi-Monthly Mass Advance of Hourly Time
The semi-monthly Mass Advance of Hourly Time to the Timekeeper will run at 3 p.m. on the semi-monthly payroll deadline to give Timekeepers until the 5 p.m. payroll deadline to approve. All time recorded on hourly positions within the mass advance period that is awaiting manager approval will be advanced to the Timekeeper.
User-Initiated Mass Process Guidance
Mass Transaction Submission System (MTSS)
The Mass Transaction Submission System (MTSS) provides the ability to perform mass Hires and Add Additional Jobs through an interface outside of Workday at any time of the year. This system is an alternative to processing student Hires and Add Jobs manually within Workday.
Mass End Employment Date Extension Process
This cyclical mass process extends the end employment date for workers in designated populations. The process is scheduled based on semester begin/end dates.
Non-Tenure Track Faculty Mass Transactions
Non-Tenure Track (NTT) Faculty Mass Process will manage NTT Faculty contracts by centrally processing Renew, Inactivate, and Reactivate transactions prior to the start of the fall semester.
Non-Tenure Track Faculty Lateral Reclassification Mass Process
The Non-Tenure Track (NTT) Faculty Lateral Reclassification Mass Process will manage updates to job profile and academic appointments for NTT faculty approved for reclassification by centrally processing Edit Job, End Academic Appointment, and Add Academic Appointment on an ad-hoc basis.
Performance Appraisal Mass Transaction Process
The Performance Appraisal Mass Transaction Process uploads Performance Review Ratings and Completion Dates into Workday for those CSUs that did not complete performance appraisals in Workday. This process is available annually.
