Workday Training FAQ’s

Q: What is the significance of segmentations in the context of organizational transactions?

A: Segmentations play a crucial role in ensuring that transactions within an organization are accurately executed. They are used to identify and determine the right employee when performing various transactions such as hiring, transfers, terminations, and changes in assignment or compensation details.

Q: What is the default role for a region within a region hierarchy?

A: The default role for a region in a region hierarchy is the “Region Costing Manager.” This role is assigned at the top level of the region hierarchy and is essential for overseeing and managing costing activities within that particular region.

Q: How are members of a region determined in the organizational structure?

A: The members of a region are the employees associated with that region. These members are automatically populated under the region’s members list during the hiring process within the assignment of a supervisory organization. The region information is utilized for hiring employees, and those individuals become members of the region.

Q: What cautionary advice is given regarding the customization of subtype information in organizational structures?

A: It is strongly advised not to change any delivered organization information and to customize subtypes only in custom organizations. Altering existing subtypes or replacing them in delivered organizations can lead to issues, as demonstrated in the video, where the wrong subtype (division instead of region) caused a discrepancy in the region-related input.
