How waitlists operate in Workday Student - December 8, 2023

Waitlist are potentially the largest change we see to registration in Workday Student. Waitlists in Workday are connected directly to the course section, with functionality that allows the system to handle waitlist promotion. Information provided in this call-in will include the differences between expiration methods and manual management of waitlists. We will also discuss the uses for automated waitlist promotion and manual waitlist management to enable academic units to prepare for administering and using waitlists with the option that best fits their needs.
