I like how you can easy see notes within your reqs, you can reassign roles within the req, you can search for candidates, etc. In some ways Workday is really great and simple.
Workday is not designed for recruiting purposes. It lacks very basic possibilities. When you see a candidate has applied to multiple reqs you don't have the opportunity to look at notes on the candidate from other reqs without having to manually click in to each one individually.
I also don't like how you can't dismiss tasks in your inbox. Things get incorrectly assigned all the time and then you have hundreds of irrelevant notifications in your inbox that you can't dismiss -- keeping you from the tasks that you actually need to complete.
I think it would be helpful if you could search candidates by phone number as well.
If you are using Workday for the sole purpose of recruiting and candidate tracking, I would look into other platforms first. It is great for other business needs but it is not the best for recruiting.
It is a centralized hub for all recruiting information. It does not have all the capabilities that I wish it had but it still can be nice to have everything in one place.
