Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the Workday 25 update to the Georgetown Management System (GMS).  

With this update, Workday provides several enhancements in regards to the look and feel of the system.  Here's a quick summary of changes in Workday 25:

  •  New Visual Design 
  • Ability to create Expense Reports in Mobile
  • Improved Report Filtering 
  • Ability to create Requisitions and Purchase Orders using Qatari Riyals

The Workday25 Quick Reference Guide is available on the GMS website, under the Training section, which contains detailed explanations and screen captures of the changes you can expect to find in the new release. Additionally, you can watch the Workday 25 Update video to see demonstrations of the new look and feel of GMS.

There are two known issues at this time:

  1. We are receiving critical errors on Recurring Journal Templates.
  2. There is an error in uploading FY16 budget amendments using an EIB. You can still process amendments through the UI. - Resolved

We have opened cases with Workday and will provide updates when the issues are resolved.

If you encounter any GMS issues, please contact the Service Center by emailing help@georgetown.edu or calling (202) 687-4949.

Thank you for your attention.
