What is the new release naming convention?
We are changing our release naming convention to a calendar year and bi-annual release number:
- The full name will be: Workday (calendar year) Release 1 or Release 2.
- The abbreviated name will be: (calendar year) R1 or R2.
When is the new release name effective?
This change will be effective on the first release of calendar year 2020, planned for Saturday, March 7. The release previously known as Workday 34 will be known as Workday 2020 Release 1. Workday 33, which was released on Sept. 7, 2019, was our last release under the current naming convention.
Why are you making this release name change?
We want to make it easier for our customers, partners, and employees to quickly understand the timing of a Workday release. The year and number naming convention makes the product release simple to understand and remember.
How will you refer to previous releases?
Previous release names are not changing, up through Workday 33.
