A Quick Refresher on FST Tenant Builds

With the second round of Customer Confirmation Sessions coming up next month, now is the perfect time for a refresher on tenant builds. 

A tenant build, as it relates to FST, is a prototype or example of how UVA's Workday Financials will look. To complete a build, the team must enable functional areas, configure UVA specific values and business processes, load and assign security, and convert transactional and master data. Also, since this is the second build, the team made adjustments based on feedback collected from the first round of Customer Confirmation Sessions. 

Creating a tenant build is a complicated process involving lots of coordination. Everything must be completed in a specific order between the Functional, Integrations, Conversions, and Reporting teams. Since these teams must work so closely, a delay in one area may create delays in the other areas. However, these teams try to stay on top of any issues with daily and weekly check-ins to discuss progress.

The FST team recently finished the second tenant build. During the Customer Confirmation Sessions, representatives from departments and units across the University will have a chance to ask questions and provide feedback on this second build. 

If you would like to know who from your department/unit is attending these sessions, you can contact your Change Leader/Advisory Group Member. If you aren't sure who your Change Leader is, you can find out here
