The Workday app provides secure, mobile access to your Workday applications
on-the-go. As an employee, our simple interface allows you to • Review your
pay, view or request time off, check in and out for work, submit your timesheet,
and submit expenses quickly. • Get push notification...
Interface not user friendly
The app's interaction is completely optimized around the underlying database structure, rather than user needs. Entering time sheets in incredibly laborious -- click on Time Type and wait of a menu of generic time types to appear. Select a time type category, and wait for the system to query the members of that query. Finally, you get to type your value, but don't expect common patterns like Google type-ahead to search as you go. You have to wait again for a server search for potential matches. And once you enter your time entry, if you decide you need to change the category, the Workday app erases the hours field that you entered before, so hopefully you've remembered it. And don't even get me started on expense reports. I sorely miss Expensify and Forecast, which we were using before our corporate office made up standardize on Workday. Workday is definitely a product built for the convenience of the engineers who auto-generate this horrible interface -- not for their users.
I like the app and that I can access it from my phone rather than just while I’m at work. One thing would like to see is being able to manage my direct deposit a little more freely from the app. For example if I have my income directly deposited in to two separate accounts I would like to be able to manage how much I would like in each account at a moments notice with a tap on my screen rather than doing it the hard old fashioned way and calling the corporate company and it taking weeks to make a slight change.
Convenient, but not intuitive.
It’s nice to have this with you at all times as an app on your phone. But if you put in a start time of 8 o’clock, and the time happens to be 637 when you’re doing it, the end time automatically is at 37 minutes. It would be nice if there were an easy or quick way to automatically get that minute to :00 or :30 since most people start at the top or the bottom of the hour. Then at the out time, it does the same thing. It should into with that if I started at in o’clock, I’m going to end at an o’clock. But there’s that 37 again. It’s not a big hassle just an unnecessary inconvenience.I would think this app would intuit that my end time minutes column is probably going to be equal to my start time.
Clocking In/Out Shouldn’t Be So Complicated
Can Workday hire me to create their clock in/out process and what it would appear on screen to users? The current one can be simplified by reducing the number of windows and screens that users has to navigate in order to clock in and out for the day and breaks. Also, just make it plain and simple by listing “check in time”, then a row below that would be the “15-min break”, the row below that would be “lunch”, and finally the row below that would be the time you clock out for the day(“out”). Instead, it currently shows as an example: 8:00-8:31 (meal), the row below shows 9:01-2:15 (meal)... not efficient. Each day I get confused because that’s hard to read, I end up making some mistake as a result, then I email my supervisor to adjust it to the correct time which is a waste of her time. Please fix this, thanks!
I enjoy Workday about as much as one can while doing expense reports. It’s user friendly and I’m thankful that my company uses it for finances, Human Resources, etc but the time that it takes for things to load could drive me up a wall. A simple task that should take 5 minutes turns into a 30 minute ordeal with the majority of the time spent with me screaming at the loading bubbles on the screen. Also, every now and then I just get kicked out. Whole app closes and returns to home screen on my device. I have to log back in and luckily my work is usually saved as drafts to pick up where I left off. Just seems like a little glitch I could do without. Other than these couple issues, thumbs up.
Simple use, difficult log in...
I am unaware of the multiple uses of Workday. My primary use of this app, and the primary use explained by my job site, is for viewing paychecks. Our paychecks are direct deposit and this is our only access to view deductions and payments. I have never had a single attempt for an easy log on. The PIN number access changes, the password changes, we’ve gone to an additional Authenticator app to got thru to Workday that times out before you can get number and get back to Workday, and have access denied. I recently made many efforts to write passwords and keep track of the many changes Workday puts me through to view details of my paycheck. I voted one star only to make sure my comment gets a post. If you’ve read this far, zero stars is my true rating.
Can’t save login information
I have no problems with the app itself other than not being able to save my login information. I constantly have to be sent a text to verify my identity and go through the laborious trouble of having to re-enter my information. It would be very convenient feature to be able to save my login information to not have to go through this process every time. It takes a long time to finally get into the app. If there is a way to do it I have not found it, I have looked at different areas of the app. If anyone else knows of a way to do it please let me know
Built for the future
To be transparent. I’m a Workday employee. I’ve spent the past 17 years working within the enterprise software industry. What I’ve learned is that technology changes rapidly. Institutions need software that can adapt to new technologies as they are introduced. I use Workday at least a couple times a week for processing expense reports. Recording time off and managing my performance evaluation among other critical functions. I’m especially interested in using new functionality to support learning and the budgeting and planning process. The products are great! At Workday we call it the “Power of One”. All customers are on ONE version of the software. There is ONE elegant user experience. ONE in memory object data model. ONE security model. ONE business process framework. ONE integration platform. It’s the “Power of One” that is different by design. Enjoy, and have a great Workday!
Using this app to request time off is enough to deter anyone from wanting to take time off. The app is not intuitive, it runs very very slow so it’s not just a few taps to request time off; its tap, wait for something to load, tap, wait another minute, tap, get an error message. And trying to fix a mistake or add a comment? There are multiple places to add comments and no easy way to fix a mistake in your current screen. You have to back all the way out to the homepage to find where it’s stored then go through about 3 different screens. And be careful when pressing buttons because your ‘submit’ button isn’t the one most convenient, that’s the back button that doesn’t do anything. I hate this app.
Won’t print since last update
I think the app overall is fine except since the last update I’ve lost the ability to print from my phone. I won’t to keep paper copies of my paystubs and other vital info for my own records in case digital records are inaccessible when I need them. The first time I printed from my phone no problem. Now no forwarding options(email, print, etc) function within this app yet others work fine so I’m convinced the issue is exclusive to this app since the latest update. Otherwise I’m happy with Workday and not concerned about my company no longer sending me a physical copy of my paystub.

Work Day is wonderful but when the training came out for Work Day is sad a lot of us did not get to go in the training I think if a lot of us got the opportunity to go we would’ve definitely figure it out the bugs on it but we’re finding out as we go through this we’re have to learn on the girl he deafly need to give a Refresher course on it so Employees don’t have to go through this like your blindfold it it would be helpful to all employees. Yours truly. Ricky Allen
I enjoy having mobile access to some important tasks for work. I’m able to submit timekeeping to the minute because of the mobile access. Able to see pay slips on the go and work with my leadership remotely. Only flaw would be regarding timekeeping that sometimes the app will tell me there is an error when there isn’t one. Eventually it goes away but it does redirect me to correct entries that don’t need correcting. Small inconvenience but I have faith that the workday team will correct it. Thankful for this app and workdays partnership with my company.
Confused Workday HRIS Mgr
I’m over Workday at my Company. I’m confused. Workday 30 is coming tonight/tomorrow... and I thought community said this app update was today—and your pics show the 30 version, but the app update I have is not changed from prior version. No frequently used apps, no navigation bar at the bottom, etc...Why does this download not match your screenshots?? The app is descent, could be much better. Until WD can do geofencing or distinguish between mobile and web time punches, we can’t use time entry much at all. Our managers actually just use the mobile website more than this app. Many things - it will tell you it cannot do in the app when you get them in your inbox.
On the go - keep employee and candidate processes moving
As a supervisory org/hiring manager and recruiter, I find the mobile platform exceptionally convenient to complete most tasks. Tasks like approvals for hire/terminate, performance management reviews, new requisitions, new position among many others all done on my smart phone. Also from the recruiter/hiring manager role I can review, change status, update interview results, and eventually submit for offer letter, again, all through my phone.
Time Entry Option Needed
I like this app for everything it allows you to view and do within it. My only complaint is that you are only able to view the hours you have worked or entered on a computer or other device, and that you are unable to perform any time entry operation here. If that was made possible, it would save a lot of time spent getting into the program via a computer. If that was changed, I would update my rating of this app to 5 stars. Otherwise, again I think this is a great and helpful app.
