Settlement Run Activity

Your Settlement Run Activity page shows the settlement runs completed in Workday using your Ascend payment methods: check, ACH, and virtual card.

When making an ACH or virtual card payment, make sure the bank account is fully funded before running a settlement in Workday. If your organization has set up a cancellation period, you can cancel settlement runs in Workday during that time.
