Workday is set to roll out starting in just two weeks. To help you prepare, the NextGen Project has opened access to MinnState10 Workday Practice Site, a new online practice tool for all employees.  

This resource will allow you to try out Workday before it officially launches. You can explore the Workday dashboard and safely practice essential tasks like filling out a timesheet and requesting leave.  

We encourage all employees to spend a few minutes practicing in Workday, so that everyone is comfortable and ready to go when the system goes live.  

More about the MinnState10 Workday User Practice Tool

The MinnState10 Workday user practice tool is a space where users can practice navigating in Workday to become familiar with its functions, features, and applications.  

The NextGen Project may also refer to this tool as the “Workday User Practice Tenant.” (Workday uses the term tenant to mean an application that requires its own secure, cloud-based computing environment. It’s another way of saying a “version of Workday.”)  

Access Instructions (PDF) to use this tool are posted on Friends of NextGen. 

Note: Employees who were hired on or after March 21, 2024, may not have access into the User Practice Tenant. Current positions of employees who changed jobs on or after that date may also not have access to the Practice Tenant. 

What you will be able to do

Practice the functionality you learned in Workday computer-based training courses WD01-05.

Things to be aware of

  • This is a practice environment, so you won’t be able to run every step of every process. 
  • You may notice data inconsistencies, such as missing recently hired employees and inaccurate security roles. 
  • Any changes you make to data or personal information will not carry over to go-live. 
  • Workday support for users is unavailable in the User Practice Tenant. Workday support will be available after go-live. 
  • The MinnState10 Practice Tenant is available now through June 28.  
  • A new link for the live Workday Tenant (Production Tenant) will be communicated when it is available; theUser Practice Tenant is unavailable after June 28.
