Frequently Asked Questions

HRSTM and Payroll FAQs:

The next major milestone in the Workday project will go live on January 3, 2022.

Banner will no longer be used for any transactions related to human resources and financial management.
However, Banner remains the College’s student information system.

The Workday system “black-out” period will begin on November 27 and extend through January 2, with hiring and onboarding being unavailable beginning November 19.

You will be unable to use the Workday system, and MC Learns during that period. In response to this blackout period, ELITE will provide a temporary registration process for employees participating in ELITE-sponsored professional development. Additional information about this process will be available soon. Workday training materials will be accessible during blackout period on the Workday@MC training page.

Please note that access to Banner is not affected during the Workday black-out period. 

PAP is for PTF (unless it is Overload in Spring or Summer ESH for FTF).
Yes, the integration in Spring will only pull over Instructional ESH courses that are entered in SIAASGN as of the “lock” date.

All non-instructional ALT ESH needs to be manually entered, as will any late courses that were not entered in SIAASGN as of the Integration date. SIAASGN will need to be kept up-to-date and accurate at all time or faculty may be over or under paid.

As long as the activity dates and pay dates are for the correct pay periods, all should be fine. Once you click Submit, the pay activity is committed to the system, so if the course is cancelled or ESH changes, you will need to update SIAASGN as well as PAP.

You will maintain workload in SIAASGN, but FTF in Workday are on an Academic Salary and that is how they get paid.  Workday PAP is primarily for PTF. FTF Spring Overload and Summer is paid through PAP. No other PAP is entered for  FTF.

No, each course/instructional ESH or ALT ESH is a separate entry in PAP for PTF. Each PTF only needs one Job under the Chair the course in being taught under, in order to add multiple PAPs.

Only if the course on a different campus is under a different chair.

If the instructional ESH courses have not been confirmed and entered in SIAASGN, before the date we identify, they will not come over in the Initial Fall or Spring integration load and will need to be entered manually.

Only employees who have to enter “In and Out” time would need to do this (those who are shift-differential eligible).

You will select the Activity, then search for the Task of “NIST” and can choose from the list.  Enter the appropriate dates activity date, calculate the Hours and enter them, if PTF, in the Hours per week field and fill in the ESH, which based on their rank, should auto calculate the total, then confirm the pay dates.

 You will search for the Task of Voucher or Stipend once in PAP.

Yes. You can either spend all before end of fiscal year or request the PO to be closed.

PO’s (including blanket) using operating funds will not roll over; however, if PO goods or services are received by June 30th of that FY, but associated invoice is not received until the following FY, that PO will be accrued, so that previous FY funds can be used to pay invoice.  

Purchases (operating fund) for goods or services at the end of the fiscal year, must be received by June 30th of the same FY.  If the item(s) is not received until the next fiscal year, the PO stays open; however, invoices will be paid from new FY budget.   

Capital and Granted purchase order can be carried over.

Requisitions for equipment do not automatically route to Facilities in Workday. If you need installation service from Facilities, it is Requisitions for equipment do not automatically route to Facilities in Workday. If you need installation service from Facilities, it is recommended that you submit a Facilities Service Request BEFORE you submit your requisition.

If a service was performed and you received an invoice, a copy can be used as backup documentation; however all original invoices still need to be sent to Accounts Payable to process for payment.

Blanket POs should be received by items received/invoiced. If the blanket PO is $10,000 and you receive/invoiced for $2300 then that would be the amount you receive. You would not fully receive a blanket PO if you haven’t received that amount of goods.

Cost Center Manager & Secondary Cost Center Manager FAQs:

The requisition and invoice processes are covered in separate trainings. Please check the Workday training page for latest training information. CCM/SCCM approval is part of the BP process.


Currently, there is no role configured to review transactions.
Business Process Administrators will monitor bottlenecks in business processes and contact relevant users.  

There are two cost centers used for capital funds projects that roll over thru multiple fiscal years: 223000 and 226000.

No, this is a one-for-all instead of cost center specific process.  In other words, the business process configured will work for all cost centers instead of specific cost centers.  

While Banner budgeted to the line level, Workday now budgets to the ledger account level. This means that in the Composite MC Budgetary Balance Detailed Report, budget will be totaled at ledger account level for all spend categories rolled up to that ledger account.  Spend categories will show on the actuals, obligations, commitments.  Because the budget is at ledger account level, it eliminates the need to move funds around between the different spend categories.
