If you would like to take Workday for a test drive, sign up to attend a Workday User Lab! You can perform sample tasks live in Workday, with Workday team members in the room who can provide support. Participants are required to register through Learn@ISU, so that the Workday team can prepare your user login information for you to use during the session. User labs are scheduled for June 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, and 25. Find more details here.

Important Dates

You can find a list of important “cutover” dates on the WorkCyte website, with deadlines for everything from hiring tasks to the last day that TracyTime can be used for timekeeping. All faculty and staff will want to check your personal information in AccessPlus by June 17, 2019.
