Info Station

 

We know you don't always have time in your busy schedule to keep up with the FST project via our regular communication channels, yet you still need to be able to find specific information when you need it. To help you navigate the plethora of FST information and get what you're looking for, we've organized this one-stop station for the info you need.

There's so much more to come!  We'll be adding to these resources steadily as the project progresses, so if there's something you don't see here, please let us know so we can add it!

For the Latest Project Information

We post updates every other week to this webpage under the "Key Activities" tab on the navigation bar above. You can choose Workday Financials for the latest on the project in general, or, choose from any of the workstreams you see listed for specifics on those areas of focus.  

For a Deep Dive on a Specific Subject

This website has a lot of general information and the latest updates, but you might be looking for anything and everything related to a specific area. In that case, we advise taking a look at both the UVAFinance blog and CommunityHub

The UVAFinance Blog

CommunityHub

Foundation Data Model (FDM)

  • Create an FDM stream in the online CommunityHub. The general UVAFinance Community has lots of great information about a variety of FST-related topics, of course. But if you're really looking to hone in on a specific topic, such as FDM, you can create a stream that enables you to have content gathered for you by people and tags you've selected. Informative presentations from the FST Steering Committee and Advisory Group are tagged there as well, to make it easier to find presentations with the most recent information about FDM. Here's a link to a Community post with info about understanding feeds. It also includes guidance on how to set up your own stream. There's more info on custom streams available from Jive, the CommunityHub platform. Use the "fdm" tag when building your stream, or you can also always search the community with keywords or tags to find content of interest. Other FDM-related tags are “foundation data model,” “fdm governance,” “fdmproject,” and “fdm_project.” The FDM Community page can also be your go-to.Search box on blog
