5 Replies and 460 Views UserAction email to group mailbox  460  5 Started by  Rick McCahan I'm working on a new flow for the benefits department.  They've requested that instead of sending UserAction notification emails to the individual actors, one email should be sent to their shared department mailbox.  This will allow them to share the workload by working from a single queue. It's not clear to me if this is possible nor how to set it up. Thoughts Thanks!

3 Replies and 525 Views General Question about process  525  3 Started by  Bill Alt General question regarding what others do when a user changes job duties or assignments as it relates to what their access is within Lawson. For example, say a person changes the req location that they are responsible for. Usually you might go into IPA and change the filter plus RQ04 and if they are at all doing grants as part of that GM03. I know it can be done various ways, just looking at what others may be doing. Thanks ahead of any answers.

27 Replies and 4381 Views SQL versus standard Lawson queries  4381  27 Started by  Terry P A few of us at work today had a 'philosophical discussion' on the merits of the 'best practice' for writing Process Flows (IPA or PFI).
