Add the Address fields to Rehire form in LTM v11
I am trying to add the address fields to the rehire form in Landmark TM - our HR users want to be able to update an employee's address when submitting a rehire. When I try to update the configuration - I am not able to add the address fields. I have tried doing so via LPL and also the configuration console. I was at the TechEd conference last month and learned that this is a common complaint in the Landmark TM. Anyone have any idea how to do this? Thanks! Read More...
Processing Vendor Refunds
I am trying to figure out a way to recognize vendor refunds through the AP module so that, when I process 1099s, the amount paid to the vendor shows up correctly. I think there has to be a way to link a CB entry to an AP entry so that the transactions reconcile and the 1099 amount reported is also reduced. Does anybody have any insight into how to accomplish this?  Read More...
Purge/Archive Advice
Hello - We are long overdue for a purge/archive of Lawson data. We have open PO lines from years ago that lack for a better way to put it, we just want to go away. No resources available for research/paint screens. Does anyone have a retention policy in place - similar to what we all have for paper records? Are there 3rd party solutions available (at a cost of course) for assistance & maintenance? Is anyone using PO300 routinely for purging? We only use PO300 for Vendor Agreements at this time. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks. Read More...
LSA Allow users access to other's batch jobs by group
Hello, we are implementing LSA as part of our V10 upgrade. We are having issues trying to allow users access to other user's batch jobs. What we would like to do is to have for example a member of the payroll department have access to their own jobs, plus access to jobs of other members of the payroll department. I'm guessing this would maybe be implemented using groups?? Any advice is appreciated. Read More...
