"Works well - probably one of the better solutions on the market"

What do you like best?

Definitely one of the most user-friendly SIS's I've come across. Most places tend to rely completely on Oracle (nightmare). Ease-of-use, to me, is just as important as utility.

What do you dislike?

Could use more functionality and would love for it to "feel" faster, tighter, more responsive, and overall more a tad more enterprise - but hopefully that will be resolved in future versions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it's the right bandwagon to jump on. They have an excellent product and it ties in nicely with other HR solutions

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The obvious - offering our student body an information system to manage and view records. It's a given business need if you're in the higher education space. More competition in the arena has been good to see.

"Good UI, Intuitive design"

What do you like best?

The user interface is nicely designed, with large and clearly labeled buttons and other features. Also, the design is fairly intuitive. Most students easily pick up on how to use this tool.

What do you dislike?

Some features are redundant and not obvious. As a result, they require continuous explaining and it can be difficult to contact students to train them correctly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Overall, this product is very helpful. It significantly cuts down on the amount of paperwork and outside tracking of students. As someone who has worked in different higher education institutions managing students, Workday is not significantly better in terms of practical applications of student management. However, it is mostly easy to use for students and staff and is a powerful took in terms of being able to do many different tasks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy communication, reduce hard copy paperwork, reduce back up file storage needed (since Workday stores everything)

What Higher Education Student Information Systems solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Used it for work, it was fine"

What do you like best?

It is a simple design. It was always pretty easy to use and straightforward. I never had problems with actually logging in hours.

What do you dislike?

I wished there was a phone app for the portal. I think that would have made things more convenient. Also, it was really difficult to find your company's Workday page unless you had the specific url. Personally, I feel like a username and password and possibly a simple url extension should be enough, but I always had trouble logging in from another computer because the url was too complicated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just be wary that the site may not be as easily accessible as one may hope for. Regardless, it still serves its purpose and I feel like it is reliable as a company.

"Review of Workday Software"

What do you like best?

The workday interface is clean and easy to use. The calendar format for entering work hours makes it easy to log and keep track of your work hours.

Another useful feature of Workday is that it is possible to complete documents for Tax and other legal requirements using the software. The fields are easy to fill and the information is then used to generate the required documents.

What do you dislike?

It is difficult to open documents using the Workday interface. When you request to view a document, it asks you to wait for few minutes or to be notified later.

The names of the generated documents are very complex. Using the current system of notification and complex names, when I click on multiple documents to be opened, it gets very confusing as to which one is what.

Its notification system can be improved. There are times when I was not even aware that I had important messages in my payroll system. Email notifications and other forms of notifications that highight the importance of the message can be very useful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Workday student version to fill in my everyday work hours and get paid accordingly. The biggest benefit of using the system is that it stores all kinds of employment details and documents that include payroll information.

It was a fairly easy to onboarding and I did not struggle to understand how to use teh software. I liked the way that the information and buttons have been placed. The informations are in the right category.

"my school switched to Workday"

What do you like best?

As a graduate student in Louisiana State Univesity, I am using workday to check my payments, any official documents, travel reimbursement, and so on.

What do you dislike?

In the beginning, it was too hard for the staff to assign correct contract numbers or upload correct information. But, afterwhile, it went smooth.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Since Workday is a unified system, I recommend it to other schools too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Here in LSU, all students, faculty, and staff have a Workday account. Every official document are managing in Workday.

"Timekeeping made simple"

What do you like best?

Workday allows you to record the time you have worked in a fast and simple way. There is a feature that allows you to set the same time frame worked over multiple days which makes things extremely easy!

What do you dislike?

It takes some time to figure out how to input multiple days of the same time. I wasn't able to attend a training so it definitely took up a good bit of time trying out the different features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Putting in time as I worked was much easier than the paper form we had used previously. I could complete the log after a shift and just submit at the end.

"tide and clean UI"

What do you like best?

UI is easy to navigate and use.

Has a lot of functions/features combined in one website.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes hard to find certain things I want.

Too less tutorial to go through the dashboard and explain the items.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It would be better if I can see the current status and also expected received time for things I'm waiting to get.

The website could be more interactive rather than just presenting a lot of information for me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was recording my work-time at school using Workday Student.

Easy to track and manage.

"Workday Student "

What do you like best?

I really like Workday. It is a great tool. I love the worklets. It’s so easy to find what your looking for. Everything is at your fingertips on the home page.

What do you dislike?

I don’t like that when you search for something, it takes you back to the beginning instead of the previous page you were on.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely get it. It’s a great resource. As a student, I think it is a valuable tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps unite our campus and make us operate as a single body. I think that’s very important when having such a large group.

"It's fine. Sometimes a bit difficult from worker side"

What do you like best?

Everything is there, in a friendly, not-terribly-difficult-to-navigate presentation.

What do you dislike?

The messaging system is a bit of a pain, and it's not always clear where different menus/interfaces are located.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's fine. You aren't going to run into unexpected problems. As a user, you probably don't have much say, insofar choosing a different software to accomplish these needs. Workday had been fine for what we've needed to do. While it's hard to get *excited* about this kind of software, I and my collaborators have really had no problems with it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've used this to manage research assistant payments. It's been easy managing them all from one place, rather than checking in, through emails and asking them to track hours on something like a spreadsheet. Benefit is that we're spending less time managing payments and time-tracking, and more time actually getting things done.

"Academic material review and messaging"

What do you like best?

Great central hub for resource organization, messaging, and structured material review. I like the calendar and reminder function within the platform; this is helpful to stay on track.

What do you dislike?

As mentioned above, the scheduling/reminder function WITHIN the platform was great, but I wish this could have been further integrated with personal or Google calendars.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Academic training and refresher courses as well as scheduled outreach messaging to manage materials.

"User Friendly portal for the future"

What do you like best?

honestly not much. It definitely meets the needs of our use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its much more cooperative with our other systems and easy to navigate so it cuts back on time for training and use.

"Convenient Tool for Tracking Pay/Benefits"

What do you like best?

Workday allowed me to enter all my salary paperwork online, and I can easily update this information or check a pay stub.

What do you dislike?

The two factor authorization to log in can seem like a bit overkill.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think it saves our HR department a lot of hassle, and it also allows student employees to submit paperwork without having to go to HR in person.
