Upcoming Overnight and Weekend Workday Downtimes 2/9-2/18

DEPARTMENT(S): 
February 5, 2021

UPDATE: Downtimes after 2/18 are not needed.

Workday Production will be unavailable overnight and weekends to move student data from Banner into Workday.  

As part of WPI’s migration from Banner to Workday Student on Feb. 22, 2021, we will be required to take Workday offline at night and on weekends in February to import 1.5 million records from Banner. The schedule below reflects the longest period that Workday might be unavailable. On any day, Workday may be back earlier, and we will update the downtimes through an announcement on the landing page in Workday and on the WPI Hub.  

This data load will allow WPI to launch our student and academic functionality, but you will not notice or need to do anything immediately related to Workday Student -- all current academic year activity continues in Banner through the end of E Term. The first activity in Workday Student will be registering for Fall 2021 courses later this Spring, which we will communicate about well in advance. 

Please see the downtime schedule below.
