Inbox Tasks vs. Notifications

Workday sends you two types of messages about business processes: Inbox tasks and Notifications. Inbox tasks (found by clicking the mailbox icon in the top right corner of your screen) require action on your part. For example, items you must approve are sent to your Inbox. Notifications (found by clicking the bell icon in the top right corner of your screen) simply provide information and don't require action.

Notification Preferences

Would you prefer to receive all of your Workday notifications at once rather than one at a time? You can do so by selecting the Daily Digest option in your notification preferences. Click your profile icon, then My Account, then Change Preferences. Scroll down to the Parent Notification Type section and change the settings. Your Daily Digest email will be sent at midnight each night. See the Changing Account Settings job aid to learn more.
