What Are Reports in Workday?

Workday delivers an extensive number of standard reports. In addition, the Elevate program has identified and built additional custom reports based on UMD’s specific requirements. 

A comprehensive list of reports will be available. 

Here are just a few examples of reports in Workday:

  • Browse Learning
  • Directory by Organization
  • Headcount Analysis for My Organization

Who Has Access to Reports?

Report access is driven by security. Each user is granted a security role, and this determines what access to data they have in the system. In addition, some segments of data are confined to the Cost Center and Supervisory Organization assigned to the user.
