Add Workday attributes for writeback , Work Phone and Mobile in addition to email
Writeback to workday seems like a great idea. Just only email is supported now. Please add Mobile and WorkPhone and we would not need to use the API to connect to workday at all.
And if you would add photo export out of workday on the provisioning to Active Directory, then the 2 solutions would be amazing.
Happy to share that Workday writeback now supports phone number (landline and mobile) writeback. For instructions to configure writeback, please refer to: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/saas-apps/workday-writeback-tutorial
Good to see that this is in place, however (and it's possible I'm missing something) how do we not write phone number etc back into Workday.
We only wish to source AD Username and Email address (at this time) and we don't seem to have the option to delete any of the other configuration.
Am I missing something?
We should have the ability to NOT sync these as well. I only need to sync E-Mail address back from AAD to WD.
We use FTP, csvs, and powershell scripts to do a 1 way sync from WD to AD. would love to try the azure connector and would need the full functionality. phone number, email and username sync back to WD would be awesome, and photo sync from WD->AD would be a great bonus.

Any chance we could get an update on the possibility of this request becoming a reality?
Please add the ability to sync work phone from Azure AD to Workday.

It would be even better to allow us to add advanced attributes like you can in the other Workday Provisioning applications.

I also like to add both numbers in Wokdays as already discussed.

@Harald Meindel, true.. you know what would be even greater? a free text input field where I can manually add the attributes i need.
I even opened a microsoft support case for that feature, but they just said we have to push this idea here to even get noticed.
the actually writeback app has really useless attributes to write back.. its just the "User Name" for SSO.. this suggestion shouldnt be just work phone and mobile, it should be a free text field.
Harald Meindel commented
A great idea, this would be awesome to have also Mobile and WorkPhone available via the Connector

Please add Mobile and WorkPhone update into Workday Work Contacts ... yes please!
Photo to or from workday would be great too.
