A Workday system preview is available now

There is not that much time left until we go live on July 1, and the Workday project team is happy to announce a new Canvas course called Workday System Preview. This Canvas course is a set of materials that provides all Miami faculty and staff the opportunity to get an early look at what a generic Workday system looks like as well as view some sample job aids for common tasks for employees and managers. There are no chapters, pages, or tests, just information for you to consume at your own pace.

The information included in the course materials are basic, non-Miami-specific navigation videos provided by Workday, as well as job aids for common tasks and actions. The course is available now and you can self-enroll in it through Canvas.

This information is a chance for you to get started with seeing the Workday system before the official full-campus Workday training program kicks off later at the end of April. At that point, there will be numerous learning opportunities available that will continue through our go-live on July 1. These opportunities will be presented in a variety of methods, including live Zoom sessions, recordings for on-demand viewing, and hands-on sessions at various computer labs across our campuses, as well as at the Staff Development Center. Training will include program-specific and role-based opportunities, as well as employee self-service and manager self-service functions.
