Getting Everything Just Right: FST Testing

The FST team is currently working on the creation of the End-to-End (E2E) tenant of Workday Financials that will be used for testing. 

The E2E tenant will incorporate changes based on insights gained from the second round Customer Confirmation Sessions and other work in the configuration tenant. End-to-end testing officially kicks off on Sept. 1, 2021, and continues through Jan. 14, 2022, with a contingency period (in case more time is needed) from Jan. 17-Jan. 31, 2022. 

The hands-on portion of testing begins on Sept. 27. The team is currently confirming the scenarios that will be tested; it will be an opportunity to complete common processes with UVA data to ensure things work as we expect. Testers will also try to break things in the system to suss out issues to fix before the next iteration tenant. Because payroll was already implemented as part of HR Workday (HCM), the testing period also includes six weeks of regression testing for payroll to be sure that things will continue to work smoothly with payroll after Workday Financials goes live. If all goes to plan, testing will be signed off on in early February 2022; use of the contingency period would delay that slightly. 

Following the completion of E2E testing, user experience testing will occur starting in mid- to late-February in a new version of the tenant that will include adjustments based on E2E. That round of testing will include a wider group of representatives from across the University.
