"It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge."

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. 
Roth 401(k) Setup in Lawson
We currently have the traditional 401(k) with company match set up in Lawson. Does anyone know how to set up Roth as well in Lawson? Combined, the employee and employer match cannot exceed the IRS set limits. Screenshots would help! 
Auto Assign Emp Numbers
Has anyone turned on the auto assignment of numbers after manually assigning numbers for a long time? We are currently manually assigning employee numbers in Lawson. Unfortunately our numbers are not consistent and we have used four digit numbers as well as 6 or 7 digit numbers. If we were to turn on the auto assignment of employee numbers, would it know to skip numbers that were already in use or would the random numbers that we used be a problem? Ie) if we set the last number used to 31000, would it skip 31222 since that number is already being use?  Read More...
Design Studio and IE11

Automated User Setup and ISS
We are working to implement Infor Security Services (ISS) in our test environment to federate our 10.0.4 LSF and 10.0.4 CU19 Landmark environments. In the past, I had a process flow that created all of our user accounts in LSF automatically when an employee is hired. I just started working on modifications to it today to account for ISS and Landmark but have run into a snag. Read More...
