Workday update: Cancel journals in “Created” status after period close

October 6, 2021

Workday has provided an update which allows users to cancel journals that are in a “Created” status when the ledger period is closed. Previously, journals could not be canceled or edited to change the accounting date, so the journal was left in Created status for the period. While this did not impact the GL, it added extra data to the tenant.

To cancel a journal, select Cancel in the related actions box.

If the journal entry is still necessary, select Copy in the related actions box to copy the journal into the open fiscal period. Instructions on performing a journal copy can be found at Workday@Yale Training.
