2 Replies and 836 Views ESS - Avaliablity of benefit plans contingent on enrollment in different plan.  836  2 Started by  The.Sam.Groves We are talking about setting up a plan which is only avalaible if the employee enrolled in a specific health plan. We've been told that stock ESS wouldn't be able to handle preventing the employee from seeing the plan, since normal avaliablity is based on groups, which wouldn't be updated till after enrollment was finished. How much of a headache are we looking at if we wanted to do a customization for this in ESS Naivity would lead me to think it would be a relatively simple thing.

2 Replies and 3970 Views Lawson MM to EPIC interface  3970  2 Started by  jcarrott We started using IC527 to extract data for EPIC, only to find out that IC527 is a delta extract. It only extracts what has changed since the last run of the IC527. We need to load the FULL extract before we can start doing the delta. Does anybody know what to use for the full extract, it would be great if it was in the same format and with the same name as the IC527.
