Last Day Activities

Freeze dates and last days for activities in various systems being replaced are listed below across Human Capital Management and Finance.

These last day activities and important information about the Workday Go-Live process will be communicated through a variety of channels as the go-live date approaches so system users are aware and can plan accordingly.

This page will continue to be updated as activities are identified and last day activities are solidified. These dates may shift. Any modifications to these dates will be reflected on this page as well.

Human Capital Management

This section provides details on last day activities for Human Capital Management across specific systems and functions.

Payroll and Human Resources (PHR)

High-level information about PHR:

  • Payroll: The November 22, 2024, paycheck will be the last paycheck generated from PHR.
  • PHR Access: Timesheet Adjustments/Pay Adjustments will be shut off after the PP09 transaction cutoff (10/28).  All other PHR modules except for timesheets and effort reporting will be turned to read only for campus users after 11/02. The data snapshot from PHR used to convert data to Workday will be taken on November 3.
  • FY25 Pay Period 10: All transactions effective in PP10 should be approved in PHR by 11/02. Where possible, transactions should be approved for a prior pay period OR held until Workday is live on November 15. Any transactions NOT approved in PHR by 11/02 must be held until Workday is live (except terminations, which will be processed centrally).
  • FY25 Pay Period 11, Pay Period 12, and other future pay periods: Transactions effective in Pay Period 11 or beyond will not be migrated to Workday. Transactions effective in pay period 11 and beyond should be entered into Workday once it is live.
  • Pay period 10 terminations: Any terminations effective in PP10 not approved in PHR before 11/03 should be sent to Payroll Services for central processing.
  • Costing changes: No costing changes effective after 11/03 in PHR will be loaded to Workday. Costing changes effective after 11/03 should be held until they can be entered into Workday.
  • Overloads: Overloads entered in PHR should begin on a pay period start date and end on a pay period end date
  • Pay period 10 job changes: Job changes for existing employees that are effective in pay period 10 should be effective at the beginning of pay period 10 (11/03).
  • Pay calcs: Pay calc approvers can view pay period 10 pay calcs in PHR, but will not be able to approve pay calcs. This will not impact pay period 10 pay.  Any necessary adjustments should be made when Workday is live.

Specific dates based on activity in PHR are listed below:

  • Changes to add, modify, or make obsolete PHR units
