The online support for Workday Adaptive Planning is very helpful. I go there at least once a week to find answers to questions and they’re usually very easy to find. If i’m unsuccessful in finding the answer, I email Workday Adaptive Planning support and they’re quick to answer, willing to help, and provide great clarity on the answer if you need it.

Adaptive support is typically very responsive and able to resolve most issues that happen in the system. I would highly recommend that teams new to Workday Adaptive Planning either have a support contact signed with their implementation partner or hire an individual who can help to maintain and support the system for users.

With Workday Adaptive Planning we were able to find a lot of helpful information in their forum center; however, the customer service has a lot of quality, the email response is fast, and they always proved to have a solution to each of the problems.

If you get locked out of your account, it is easy to reset your password and get access to your account again. I have not encountered any major issue that needs take support to do live support on it. However, everything can be found in FAQ section and topics discussing on How-To are widely available.

Their support infrastructure is world-class. Of course, they have a team that responds directly to issues/questions, but they also have an ecosystem of support (blogs, user forums) and training (in fact, they're training modules are some of the best I've seen).

Support response time is always within 1 day which compares well with other cloud vendors we interact with daily. Support is facilitated via email/form, an upgrade would be a chat option within the tool for more real-time troubleshooting.

The support team responds timely but typically on a pacific time vs. eastern standard time. I would prefer to have a phone number to call vs. email my questions and have issues answered in my time zone.

Although I think the support is pretty good, most of the time it takes about 1/2 day or more to get a response.
