Posted in News Story
Please be aware of the following recent updates to GMS processes, job aids or reports as of October 29, 2018.
HCM181029.01 – Budget Check Bug Fix
Impacted Roles: CFO, Finance Partner, GU-Budget Analyst HCM, GU-Senior Business Manager
A bug has been fixed for Budget Check transactions for Adjunct or Temporary additional positions (in position management) that sometimes triggered an exception. The system was configured to bypass Budget Check for these types of positions, but would still sometimes trigger an exception for transactions when the position is an additional job.
Workday has provided a fix for this bug, so you should no longer receive budget check exception override requests for any Adjunct or Temporary additional positions.
