Training Guide for Workday roles

October 10, 2018

Now that Workday Financials has been live for over a year, we are providing you with updated information on important topics as we get requests from the community.  

To respond to a request to clarify Workday roles, the following changes have been made to training guide:

  • A new training guide, “Role Definitions in Workday” provides both Human Capital Management (HCM) and Financial role names with corresponding role descriptions. The table identifies what each Business Operations role can see and do.
  • The “Managing Roles in Workday” guide presents the steps for the business process Assign Roles-Add/Remove.  The Best Practices section of this guide has been updated to clarify how the Supervisory Organization Hierarchy and Cost Center Hierarchy impact role inheritance.  This section includes examples of how role inheritance is used to provide access.
