Quote of the Issue
"Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future."
-- Niels Bohr
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. 
Hosted Servers Best Practices
Looking to establish a discussion related to best practices related to a hosted Microsoft server configuration. Examples:
  • Additional SQL server special jobs for performance.
  • Additional SQL Indexes added
  • Rebooting Complete Lawson environment on a regular schedule.
  • Tricks or Trips related to CTP patching.
Infor10 Mingle Login Screen Customization
Users have inquired about customizing the labels for the Login/Password input boxes on the Infor10 Mingle Login screen to be more helpful to the users about what values are to be used for logging into the Infor10 system(s). Other customization (ie. Listing the environment, displaying links to Tutorials, displaying notices, etc) may also be requested in the future. We are familiar with doing such customization for the old 9.X version, but with the code changes introduced with Infor10, we are having some difficulties identifying which file(s) need to be modified for customization to the Infor10 login screen. Can anyone direct me to the appropriate file(s)? Read More...
RNI Cleanup - PO33 Upload?
I'm trying to clean up RNI and back out receiving--anyone have an upload for PO33 they wouldn't mind sharing? Read More...
Shelf Locations Changes to Par Locations
We're trying to figure out the best way to give some par location (IC81) owners the ability to change their shelf locations. They can change the par level on the handheld but I don't think they can change the shelf location. We would like to limit their change access to just the prefer-bin field but also don't think that's possible. What are others doing? We do not want to give them complete change access due to the risk of them really messing some stuff up. Any advice on what has worked for you would be helpful.  Read More...
Thanks for your continued support of the LawsonGuru Letter and LawsonGuru.com.

The U.S. Military Can Teach You to Write Way More Efficient Emails
In the military, we all know, you learn how to fight, how to push past your perceived limits, even how to make your bed. But there's at least one thing most of us rarely imagine soldiers and sailors learning to do: wading through their inboxes.

How the NFL's Data Operation Tracks Every Move on the Field
Analytics have been important to sports at least since the first coach timed players in the hundred-yard dash, but some pro leagues have embraced statistical game analysis much faster, and more effectively, than others. Lagging behind professional baseball, basketball and soccer has been football, mired in good measure by the sheer complexity of the game. That's changing, and fast.
