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.
