How much training do we need to appropriately use the system?

  • If your role requires you to frequently complete financial business processes on behalf or yourself and/or others, you should take advantage of available training. However, given that this will be the general ledger for the University of Miami, we encourage all employees to learn the Workday Finance system in order to learn how to perform basic tasks and understand its navigation and functionality.
