Now Available: Changes to Workday Ad Hoc Bank Transactions and Customer Deposits

As previously shared, effective May 6, the Controller’s Office is implementing changes to the University of Miami’s banking structure that will improve the transparency and availability of data across Workday, improve our business processes, and align with best practices.

These changes, which affect Ad Hoc Bank Transactions (AHBTs) and components of Customer Deposits/Payments, resulted in the following:

  • Companies are now assigned to bank accounts within Workday.
  • When initiating AHBTs, you now have the ability to submit transaction lines for multiple Workday Companies in the same AHBT. This eliminates the need to submit separate AHBTs by Company, and ensures a more streamlined reconciliation process for deposits.
  • When approving AHBTs, you may now see different Companies entered in the header versus the transaction lines, or transaction lines for multiple Companies entered in the same business process.

For all other inquiries, please contact the IT Service Desk at: 305-284-6565 or help@miami.edu.
