PO100 Enhancement Request - please review and approve.

Wellspan Health has added the following Enhancement Request to Infor.

Please review the data below, Log in to Infor Consierge and Endorse ER52859. Link below:
https://ers.infor.com/Ers/Ers_Details.aspx?erID=52859&AER=false&tbv=1

Modify PO100 creation of PO line MMDist info when Combine on PO  Read more...Line = Yes

When combine line is set to Yes for a non I-type item and the interfaced Requisition line is NOT combined with another line
MMDist records that USED TO BE set at 100% are now created as a Quantity Distribution with the order Quantity input.

When lines are edited or quantities cancelled, this requires the end user to access and update the MMDIST record in order to release the revision.

We're requesting Infor to change the default so that a single non I type Requisition line is created in PO20 with an MMDIST record at 100% instead of the Quantity set to match the PO line. Show less...

If you did NOT have a chance to attend the [WEBINAR] COVID 19 Emergency Sick Pay EFMLA this week or if you would like to share with your peers, please select that image below...

Beginning April 2nd the Emergency Sick Pay Act will take effect and a substantial portion of the Infor client base will want to be prepared to implement these changes in their payroll and absence management systems. This change is only mandated for companies with less than 500 employees but many of our  Read more...customers, regardless of size, are expressing an interest of offering this to their employees.

An information sheet is attached that will help to further explain the parameters of these new regulations in order to assist organizations in quickly implementing the federally mandated benefits (for employers with fewer than 500 employees and those larger companies who choose to implement).

Bails will be conducting a 30 minute webinar on Monday April 6th at 3pm Eastern to further explain what is required to implement these changes to your payroll and absence management system. This webinar will provide information applicable to users of all Infor versions and across all industries.

Register early as demand is expected to be high. We will add an additional session or sessions if needed for April 7 or 8 if needed.

If you have any questions – or are seeking immediate assistance in setting up your new plan – please contact your Bails & Associates rep directly. If you are seeking assistance and do not have an existing contact please email info@bailsllc.com for assistance.

During this unprecedented time we’re all trying to find ways to support you. Our hope is that this effort will be of great assistance to those affected.

Best wishes,

Bails & Associates

Discontinued item status - replenishment and billing (EPIC) - Enhancement needs votes.

Infor has added D status, discontinued items, tracking in IC11, IC12 and IC81. When used, these items can no longer be selected for Purchase Orders, but are not inactive. This allows items to stay valid for billing and replenishment within Lawson.

The fatal flaw, the D status is NOT valid in MSCM. Stock items disappear from the gun and have to be managed in the Lawson modules. Read more...

Please vote log in to Infor Concierge, enter ER39327 and vote to have the D value added to MSCM.
