The report Details for Account Certification can help.
In Workday, type Details for Account Certification in the global search. Select the Worktags that match your Account Certification. This will give you a report with all the details. You can export to Excel. Pro tip: Keep the Details for Account Certification open in Workday to drill into transactions you need more information on.
In the exported worksheet, you can add a column to mark off the lines you’ve checked. You can also add a column next to the Amount column where you can add your variance (if any of the transactions are not correct) to be added up at the end. You may also want to add a column where you can add notes. Pro tip: In the first row with the column titles, highlight the entire row and select Sort & Filter and add Filters. You can then select on the filter in the Ledger Account column to select one Ledger Account at a time to make it look like the Account Certification table.
When you are completely done reviewing your spreadsheet, go back into the Account Certification and add in the total Amount to Certify (total in the Account Certification minus the variance listed in your spreadsheet) and copy in the notes.
