Workday Support for PIs & Their Research Groups



Dear Department Members,

Workday is now live! To log in to Workday, please visit the IRP website and click on the Workday link that is published on the homepage.

To help PIs & their research group with Workday (ie. to set up tasks/approval delegation, answer inquiries on approval processes/delegation, etc.), I am providing a Zoom drop-in specifically for PIs & their support staff. Please share this information with your group. If the Zoom drop-in dates/times don’t work for you, please feel free to reach out to me to schedule for a meeting.


Nov 9, Nov 10 & Nov 12
Time Open between 10 am to 12 pm
Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID:  583 278 4969
Passcode:  318276
Please note that Zoom’s waiting room feature will be enabled, allowing me to admit one person to the conversation at a time.


In addition to the specific PI & Research Group Zoom drop-in, the Department will also be providing an open Zoom drop-in to all Department members. Please watch for further communications about the Department-wide Zoom drop-in.
