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.

For example, if all the records are of type A, only send email from node A. However if records of all types exist then send an email from all three email nodes. Read More...
