Terminology Talk – Cancel vs. Cancel

Nov. 19, 2021

In Workday, transactions, known as business process events, can have different statuses such as in-progress, completed, or canceled. It's not uncommon to cancel an in-progress event which you can accomplish from the related actions for the specific business process event. An unsubmitted business process can simply be canceled via a cancel button on the screen.

Tips for Optimizing the Mass Term Process

Nov. 19, 2021

Each month, the Mass End Additional Job/Termination Process (mass term) uses automation to reduce the effort involved in ending jobs in Workday that would otherwise have to be ended manually within a short window of time. Why is this important? Jobs not ended appropriately can impact employee benefits and pay as well as CSU budgets and resources resulting in extra time and effort all around.

Announcing plans for the future phase out of the TXShop service

Nov. 16, 2021

The askUS TXShop team has announced plans to phase out the TXShop service over the next four years. UT created the TXShop service over ten years ago to fill a campus need for an online payment and event registration service. In the years since, more modern solutions have become available and are increasingly being adopted by groups across campus. The decision to begin the phase-out of the TXShop service at this time stems from the availability of better options for our customers that did not exist when UT created TXShop coupled with the increased resources necessary to maintain and support the service.
