Quote of the Issue
"Good judgment comes from experience, and often experience comes from bad judgment."
-- Rita Mae Brown
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. 
HR Groups - Effective Dates
Is there a file that stores the date an employee was added to a group and/or when they dropped out of a group? I'm thinking specifically of benefit groups, looking for a way to list the employees who became benefits eligible, or were eligible and became ineligible, during the past week. Read More...
Examiner for Lawson S3
Does your Active Directory match your employee data in Lawson S3 HR ?
  • Updates Lawson S3 HR email addresses from Active Directory

New Release available, now integrating Lawson S3 HR with Microsoft Active Directory


Needing Help Locking Down DrillArounds
We are in the process of implementing our infor 10 system. HR has just noticed during implementation that managers can potentially go to PA42 and drill around and see info they should not see. Read More...
Open Enrollment - BN32 Stop Dates
I was just wondering if there was any way to stop having an end date placed on the BN32 when someone elects benefits through open enrollment? We are set up as "pending" as we let our employees make changes throughout the whole open enrollment. Read More...
Item Master Fields - Major Minor Class
My manager was hoping to poll some users.
  1. What fields do you populate in IC11?
  2. How are you using Inventory Major/Minor?
  3. How are you using Purchasing Major/Minor?
  4. Do you use UNSPSC codes? If you are, how do they relate to Inventory/Purchasing Major Minor?
We have 120K active items and have noted that Family/Class in the UNSPSC would gives us 250 categories - a seemingly good classification system. We were wondering how that compares to others. Read More...
Thanks for your continued support of the LawsonGuru Letter and LawsonGuru.com.

Predictive Analytics Continue to Elude Healthcare
Though analytics can be descriptive and predictive, today most healthcare organizations are users of descriptive analytics, leveraging reporting tools and applications to understand what has already happened in the past to classify and categorize historical data.
