2 Replies and 1579 Views Method to collect email and cell number is ESS  1579  2 Started by  Joe O'Toole We need to collect email address and cell phone numbers from employees and I don't see any way to do this natively in ESS on&160;V 8.03 apps.&160;I see email is in the Employee table but it looks like a user field will be needed for cell phone. Has anyone deployed a collection method such as this and if so by what method (DS form, custom program, etc.) Also, anyone know if these fields available in V 9.X of HR / ESS Thanks.

3 Replies and 11490 Views A batch program replicating PR23 edit checks  11490  3 Started by  Deleted User We hav been asked by the users to create a batch program which should delete all records in EMPDISTMAST table (updated by PR23), takes an input file from another system and do the same edit checks as PR23 and then populate the table. In their words, it should invoke the same AGS/DME calls that PR23 uses. What is the fastest way to do that Note: I will be learning Lawson programming as I do that. Thanks
