Georgetown Management System (GMS) Service Advisory, Sep. 8 – 9

Posted in UIS News & Announcements  |  Tagged

Dear Georgetown Community Members:

The Georgetown Management System (GMS) will be unavailable from Friday, September 8, 2023, at 9 p.m. EDT to Saturday, September 9, 2023, at 5 p.m. EDT in order to implement Workday’s semi-annual system update. 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  (new window)the GMS website.

Workday’s release theme for this upgrade is focused on improving efficiency, enhancing the user experience and advancing their analytical tools for providing better insights for data driven decision making. This Workday update will deliver several enhancements to GMS, the most notable of which is “Hubs”, a one-stop shop for managing tasks, actions and reports in a consolidated location. These hubs will be rolled out for different functional areas in the coming months.

Following the update, please refer to the Workday 2023 R2 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
