Terminology Talk – Should you Close that Job Req?

Job Requisitions in Workday can be Open, Filled, or Closed. Open job requisitions are active, while Filled job requisitions are completed recruiting efforts. Closed job requisitions are recruiting efforts that will not be completed. To learn more about these and other Job Requisition terms, continue reading Terminology Talk - Job Requisitions.

Answers to Common Questions Recently Received by askUS Support

If I delete an Operational Support DocuSign request form, why does it still route for approvers to sign?

If you delete a form after sending it for signatures, any approvers will still be able to view/sign the form because DocuSign is sending each approver a copy of the original form. You should contact the approver(s) and ask them to select Decline to Sign from the Other Actions menu in Docusign to void the form. If you cannot contact the approver(s), email to request that they void the unwanted form. For more information about using DocuSign for askUS Operational Support requests, continue reading askUS Operational Support Services DocuSign Guidance.
