Coming Soon – Send Offer Letters through Workday
Recruiters and Recruiting Coordinators will soon be able to create, manage, and send offer letters to candidates within Workday. This new dynamic offer letter feature pre-fills offer letter content automatically based on job attributes (benefits eligibility, fixed term, A&P, etc.). Recruiters and Recruiting Coordinators can edit or add content to meet the specific needs of their CSU's recruiting effort. A built-in connection to DocuSign allows for the managing of signatures within Workday. This enhancement will be available later this spring, with more information and documentation available soon.

You asked US! – Answers to Common Questions
Why is a performance review routing to me for a worker I don’t know?
Because performance reviews are worker-based, not position-based, when the process routes to the HR Partner role in Workday, it will route to HR Partners for all the employee’s jobs. To learn more, continue reading Reminder – Performance Appraisals and Employees with Multiple Jobs.
What is the process for rushing a payment document for payment the same or next day?
The process of rushing a payment depends on whether the payment is for goods and services or travel. For details covering both cases, continue reading Rushing a Payment Document in the askUS Knowledge Base.
