ADA Accommodation tracking
Has anyone found a good screen/method to track ADA accommodations? We use LP51 to track leaves, but management is wanting to track ADA accommodations in Lawson as well. I see PA15.2 (Work Restriction and Accommodation), but it doesn't have a lot of data points. Has anyone found another screen to use? We currently do not use any of the Health and Safety screens, but would be open to if that's a better option than LP51.

GLS215 versus CAS530/1
I’d like to get peoples thoughts and opinions on something…
Our Finance Team will run the “GLS215 General Balance File Display” program, and specifically look at the totals for “Account 1200 – Raw Material In” and “Account 1220 Finished Goods”. Then they will run the “CAS530 Inventory Value. Print Reconciliation List”, which has a total at the bottom of the report. There is an expectations that the “Detail Reports” (i.e. CAS530) should match the Trial Balances (i.e. GLS215). In everyone’s experience, is that a reasonable expectation that those two tie out? And if not, why not?

Don’t migrate your problems to the cloud
Many look to cloud computing as the way to fix issues with data and systems, but migrating an existing problem may not be in your best interest.
