Georgetown Management System (GMS) Service Advisory, September 9-10, 2022

Posted in Announcements UIS News & Announcements

Dear Georgetown Community Members:

The Georgetown Management System (GMS) will be unavailable from Friday, September 9, 2022, at 9 p.m. EDT to Saturday, September 10, 2022, at 5 p.m. EDT in order to implement Workday’s semi-annual system update. The outage will be limited to GMS and does not impact the Georgetown network. The only impact for Georgetown employees will be a temporary inability to access GMS during this outage period. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience and will post progress updates to the GMS website.

This Workday update will deliver several enhancements to GMS, the most notable of which is the new Workday Today/People Experience, which is an update to the home page and search functionality in GMS. This feature provides a central location for important university information and improves search functionality; the home page is newly configured to provide access to relevant and time-sensitive tasks.

Following the update, please refer to the Workday 2022R2 Employee Quick Reference Guide  for more details about these and other changes. The reference guide will be located on the GMS website  under the Training section, which contains detailed explanations of the changes you can expect to find in the new release. If you manage student employees, please ensure that they are aware of this outage and upcoming changes.

If you encounter any GMS issues, please contact the UIS Service Center.

Thank you for your attention.

GMS Team
