Job reqs in Workday and JobAps do not communicate with each other, or auto-populate.
All PIN's in Workday will use the new format. The old PIN formats cannot be used going forward.
You may still see old format PINs in JobAps – these were linked to recruitments and hire data and could not be updated, but you won’t use them when completing hire details going forward (as of 11/14/14).
- If a recruitment closed in MS-310 (prior to 11/14/14), it will have the old format PIN.
- If a recruitment was started in MS-310 and remained open during the transition (prior to 11/14/14), it will have the old format PIN.
- If a recruitment was initiated in Workday (starting 11/14/14), it will have the new format PIN.
Agencies will need to follow the PSP lite process in JobAps in order to use a new PIN to hire from an open list. This will be necessary even for PIN's marked as available by the SPS project team as part of the go-live preparations. When following the PSP lite process make certain to select the PIN in its new format.
Any hire that was not completed in the old system (310) prior to shut down will require the following steps:
- A Workday req., to send the PIN to JobAps;
- The creation of a new JobAps PSP Lite Req using new PIN and existing Job number;
- The selection of the new format PIN in JobAps hire details;
- The integration back to Workday as a hire.

In many cases DBM is listed not because the flow requires approval, but simply because the process has been recorded into the system.
