    I am trying to send associates a link that will open a lawson Self Service tool (Payroll Modeling) however, if I combine the links I do not get the entire page of ESS ....   (the CSS gets by passed) 
     

    THIS WORKS WITH MISSING PAGE CONTENT:
    http://lawdev/lawson/xhrnet/paymentmodeling.htm

    THIS IS WHAT I WANT:
    First open: "http://lawdev/lawson/portal/"
    Then direct here: "/lawson/xhrnet/paymentmodling.htm"

    Is this possible in Lawson - ESS?

    Hello,
    Can you tell me how you get the full link? The web address only displays up to https://lawson...../lawson/portal no matter what page I am on. I have a similar question to the above, just a different ESS page.
    Thanks

    If you have the page bookmarked... right-click on the bookmark and 'Open in new Window' the full URL shows in the address bar. If you don't have the page bookmarked, go to the page.. Right-click on the content, and go to 'Properties'. The full URL is displayed... but you may have to copy and paste it elsewhere.

    The fastest way to figure this out is  to use fiddler to see the urls being called. it will save you a lot of time.

    So ... Anyone have the link structure to get someone directly to an ESS page in the new Workspace? (V10)

    We're trying to create a splash screen for ESS with Quicklinks to the ESS components that the Employees will be utilizing the most. I used the lifeevents_splash.htm as a starting reference, but in trying to simplify the links using basic HTML, I run into an issue. Here's an example of how I set up the links within the custom ESS splash screen:

    href="/lawson/xhrnet/homeaddress.htm"

    When I click the link on the ESS splash screen, I would like it to jump to the appropriate bookmark link (in my example above this would be the Address Change screen/form). What's happening with my current setup is that the Address Change screen/form is opening up WITHIN the ESS splash screen frame instead of jumping to the Address Change screen/form.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    If I understand your question --- You are trying to make it so yoru splash screen stays open and a new window displays the address change feature?

    In "a href" you can include a href="/lawson/xhrnet/homeaddress.htm" target="_BLANK" Using target tells it to open a new window. However, I am thinking that since it is opening a new window it might need a full url? If it does you might want to try: a href="http://lawdev/lawson/portal/?_URL=/lawson/xhrnet/homeaddress.htm

    (Would you mind sharing a screenshot of what you are building?  I am looking to do the same thing and would love to see what you are looking to do...   shanesmj@yahoo.com.)

    Good Luck

    Thanks for the response Shane. I ended up using the same linking method that lifeevents_splash.htm screen used (a div tag with the same onclick event pointing to the URLs I needed) and it works perfectly. I've sent you a screen shot of our ESS Splash Screen to your inbox.
