Finance Strategic Transformation - Resources

The FST Team and our Finance Solution Center are ready to help.

Not only have we built a fully-staffed Finance Solution Center to assist you, but also, our trainers are hosting office hours throughout September. We also have web-based training, quick reference guides, and helpful hints within the system itself that are available around the clock on the Workday Financials Training page.  User Success Agents within the Finance Solution Center track your case so that you receive the answer you’re seeking as quickly as possible.

For Fiscal Administrators

Finance Strategic Transformation should enable our Fiscal Administrators to do their jobs with an additional level of ease and insight.  We appreciate the partnership of this group and value your feedback. We definitely need your direction in order to succeed!

You’ll be hearing regularly from the project team and finance leadership throughout the project. We want you fully engaged and aware of the decision processes. The FST team will be present at monthly Fiscal Administrators meeting, and we will collect resources from those meetings on this page.  Our plan is to collect the questions asked in the meetings on this page and post answers as quickly as possible (check back frequently!)  

If there's something that would be helpful to you that you don't see, please let us know!  Contact us at financetransformation@virginia.edu
