Workday Adoption Project Update Volume 7

Hello NEIU Colleagues, 

Before you sign off to enjoy much-deserved rest over the Thanksgiving Holiday, we wanted to provide you with a short Workday Adoption project update.


We have updated the training section of To assist with the organization of NEIU's growing library of training materials, there is a new page called Academic Affairs. This page provides resources and information to those who are responsible for entering information into Workday specific for faculty.

Pay slips are now available for viewing by end of day on the Monday or Tuesday morning before your payroll date. This increased visibility allows you to plan ahead and review your upcoming paycheck. The date your funds will be available remains as posted on our website here. As a reminder, please review your payslips for accuracy and contact if you have any questions.If you see any concerns or have questions, please send your inquiry to and we will work with you and/or your home department to resolve the issue.


We received feedback from one NEIU member who shared that it can be overwhelming to search for a previous edition of our Workday weekly messages in their email inbox. To make it easier, we have consolidated all previous editions here.


The Workday Suggestion Box is a way for the campus community to provide feedback related to their experience or enhancements they would like to see in the Workday system.  Here is the link to the digital  “Suggestion Box.” 

A few things to note:

  • The “Suggestion Box” is not a place to seek help or support.  Colleagues still need to submit a ticket to the Support Desk (UTS) -

  • The “Suggestion Box” is also not a place to share your Workday tips/tricks.  We ask that you still use the Google Form link for those types of stories.
