Conversion of Histroical Data - Issue

Categorized as:

Team, my organization has just completed a full migration to MS2012, which included updates to release updates in GHR. Prior to our current system, we implemented GHR in 2018 without carrying any data over from legacy systems. If an employee was hired and terminated in our legacy system, that data was not loaded into GHR.

With the 2012 migration, our legacy system is now read only. Let's say today, if I need to update an employee's date of hire in that legacy system, I have  Read more...no ability to do that.

Although it would have been best to bring over historical data at the time of the migration, that opportunity has passed.

What would you do if faced with the same scenario and needed to update data in a legacy system, while you were operating in another system? The possibility of having two systems that data is being managed within.  Show less...

It is likely that you or someone else still has access since you running and paying employees out of S3 Payroll. My recommnedation would be to give someone in HRIS access to update that data in S3 to make sure it stays in sync with GHR.

PO100 Enhancement Request - Please review and Endorse

Wellspan Health has added the following Enhancement Request to Infor.

Please review the data below, Log in to Infor Consierge and Endorse ER52859. Direct Link:
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...

Dwayne - Thank you for your question. We will provide the recordings for those sessions we were able to record. But the AWS and Security Consideration sessions were not able to be recorded for legal reasons. The AWS presenter did provide the links he mentioned in his session. Those can be found on the MUG forum page under the AWS Session Topic.

I was interested to learn that the GLTRANS and ACTRANS tables could be copied in their entirety for historical reporting. Is this feature limited to just these tables or can we have other Lawson tables copied over as well, such as AP Vendors, Invoices, Payments, etc?

From Mike LaCosse - "Good question! The only tables that are brought over in their entirety (and without transformation) are GLTRANS, ACTRANS, HRHISTORY, and PERSACTHST. "

I am not sure why that would be happening unless your organization blocks the pop ups. Can you click on the image of the Capital Building above your comment? That should open the Registration Page.

There's a Business Class (Table with business logic) Supervisor where managers' information is created/updated/stored. You can create managers under other managers. The SupervisorChart Business Class (BC) is in sync with the Supervisor BC. This chart is a graphical representation of the hierarchy. You can create Positions from Jobs and assign managers from the Supervisor BC to the Positions. The Position info is related to the employees' WorkAssignment BC. If the employee Position changes ( Read more...Transfer, etc.) the relational rules sync this information and the Supervisor for the Position changes accordingly. This is a very simplistic way to describe these processes. If I have to come up with a way to determine Supervisors for workflows, notifications, etc., I would start with the employee's Position on the WorkAssigment BC, and get the Supervisor for the Position. In order to go up in that branch of the Supervisor tree you need the Field ParentSupervisor. This will allow you to move up until you get to the root. Hope this helps 😉 Show less...
