    Hi,

    We have a framework written in .NET (C#) that we've used in the past for adding and updating Lawson billing info.  The framework has allowed us to execute Transaction (AGS) and Data (DME) calls, and has worked very well.

    We now look to take a new hire feed from our Talent Management system, and automatically create HR11 records within Lawson.

    The HR11 AGS call is posing difficulties, though.  It appears that after we make the HR11 call, to form is expecting us to add tax deductions via the PR13.3.  When we manually create HR11 records via portal, the PR 13.3 form appears after you've clicked add - it prompts you to confirm the effective date for the benefits.

    I am able to use MS Add-Ins to create the HR11 records, so it definitely seems like it can be done outside of Portal.  Have tried to look at the AGS call string from within Add-Ins after adding the HR11, but the string appears generic - no data (name, status, etc.) is present from info that was passed in.  It appears that this might be the last of several calls required to perform the HR11 add.

    So, does anyone have any advice on performing and HR11 AGS call to add an employe and then create the tax deductions?

    Thanks!

    Hi JimK - this doesn't really answer your question, but I'm curious why you wouldn't use the delivered TM to S3 interface. Are you not licensed for IPA? If you don't go that route, I'd still think you'd want to use a PA52 (or LT11) action to create/update the S3 employee so you will have the appropriate security and history tracking.

    If TM is your system of record, trying to manage that with AGS queries is going to be really painful.

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for the quick response!

    The talent management solution our HR group selected is 'Cornerstone On Demand'. Thus, I do not have a native interface into Lawson. The first module we are implementing is recruiting (think they call it ATS).

    We had Infor Process Automation in the capital budget last year, but unfortunately it was cut. Would have loved to used IPA, though.

    Am drawing a blank about why we are not using the PA52 - am in IT, and will have to loop back with the HRIS manager.

    We currently have a homegrown eRecruiting system that Cornerstone will replace - do believe that the interface for that writes PA52 records. Am thinking HR may have shied away from the PA52 as all requisition and applicant info will originate in and be maintained in Cornerstone.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jim,

    That makes sense - when you said "Talent Management" I assumed you meant "Infor Talent Management". Since that isn't the case, the delivered interface wouldn't have helped you anyway. PA52 may not be an option if you aren't licensed for that module. Unfortunately, we strictly avoid doing AGS updates to anything except PA52 (which is challenging enough), so I can't provide any more insight into what you're doing. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

    Good Luck!

    Jim - do you have the "xmit" blocks included in your AGS?? The xmit blocks basically tell Lawson to bypass/ignore any edits, getting around those pesky "are you sure" edits.
    I will PM you a sample in the AM.
