Multiple HROrganizations
We have our Infor CS HCM environment running multiple HROrganizations, though we did not plan for it thus we did not fully make the appropriate configuration changes. And now we are facing issues concerning the Infor Process Services and action requests (and the other services) not able to run properly. We have reviewed Infor documentation and we have not been able to find the right configuration. Has anybody setup their environment to run multi HROrganizations properly? If so, could you please provide us with some advice on the right configuration so our Process Services run properly, especially our data load. Read More

Design Studio Preview not working
We are using version of design Studio and are on version 10.11 of Lawson S3/Portal. We were told this version does not support IE11, but that for Design Studio, we MUST use IE11. Using IE11 for DS, any time we attempt to use the preview function, it displays a message advising us that the browser is unsupported. Has anyone else experienced this? How can we preview the customizations when designing forms if we have to use a browser version that is unsupported by Design Studio? Read More
BN297 Offer Amount displaying $0.00
We just processed our 2021 ACA data and noticed that the 1095c form is generating with '$0.00' populating for offer amounts for full time employees that had coverage all (12) months. I reviewed the year end updates and didn't find any reference of this change. Can anyone confirm if this is valid for it to be displaying $0.00 opposed to being blank as it was last year. Thanks!
