Welcome to the latest issue of The LawsonGuru Letter, a free newsletter providing provocative commentary on issues important to the Lawson Software community.  The LawsonGuru Letter is published by--and is solely the opinion of--John Henley of Decision Analytics. 
ACA hours confirmation
Can anyone share what they are doing to confirm that the hours the BN954 is reporting are the correct hours? Are you comparing the BN954 to anything and what would that be? I thought I could compare the BN954 to the PR261 in total (by using just the total hours that are in the ACA pay class); however that doesn't exactly work because we sometimes have an item paid in the PR261 that was for a prior pay period adjustment (with a date from the pay period being adjusted). So I am close; but I have a few more paid hours in my PR261 than the BN954 is pulling (again, probably because of the dates on prior period adjustments). Thanks for any help! Read More...
Who owns MA60?
I think it's a simple question. Currently, AP monitors our MA60 screen, but MM wants it. I'm just curious .... Who monitors the MA60 screen at your place of business? Read More...
ESS New Hire Enrollment
I was curious if anyone could offer some insight as to your process for enrolling new hire benefits through ESS. Currently when we have a new hire - by placing them into HR11 it kicks off a process flow that assigns the user a user ID and password. It is causing some issues because the passwords are pretty crazy and I would really like for them to all default to just a simple word the same for everyone. Is anyone else doing this, the generic password approach? Read More...
Design Studio and IE11
I realize that Design Studio is not supported on IE11. Anyone have any work arounds for this? Read More...
