Presentation Transcript

Lawson self service





  • Provide on line/electronic access for DHHA employees to enroll in benefits (Employee Self Service)

  • Provide one site for all Self Service functions of Lawson (Requisition, Employee and Manager Self Service users) for ease in use and prevention of duplicate logins

  • Minimal customizations to adapt to Lawson patches and upgrades



  • Develop and setup standardized “look” to web site for all users including bookmarks

  • Define security by employee number, position and web requisition logon

  • Roll out to pilot group for Open Enrollment: Human Resources, Information Services, Materials Management

Approach cont

Approach (cont)

Post evaluation

Post Evaluation

  • Utilize reports to monitor and QA (login attempts, benefit enrollment)

  • Conducted survey for feedback on users experience

  • Identify areas of success and improvements for global rollout in 2006



  • RD30 record security includes employee number (HR11), requisition user (RQ04), requisition approval code (RQ02), login to laua (made this generic)

  • RD30 setup directed to customized default.xml via the ID type and attribute

Administration cont

Administration (cont)

  • RD30 link of web name and ID were made the same for simplicity and ease of maintenance (note: web type is old functionality)

  • Loaded records via RD930 or Microsoft Add-Ins

Trouble shooting

Trouble Shooting

  • Be sure to use IOS cache refresh frequently to update portal

  • Internet Explorer must meet Lawson requirements. Blocking of pop-ups cannot be enabled. Typical errors: "Error on page" --and-- "Object doesn't support this property or method" --and-- "The server returned an invalid XML response"

  • Logan environment and application access takes trial and error. We opened Logan and disallow user from switching to this product line in preferences

Trouble shooting cont

Trouble Shooting (cont)

  • Attributes are very sensitive on setup so may need to delete RD30 and start over

  • Minimize bookmarks (parent vs. child) to limit selections on login page and prevent too many pop-ups



  • Login Error warning – If User ID or password was incorrect, background turned red and we customized so users see “Invalid username or password” verbiage. See Lawson Guru Letter:

Customizations cont

Customizations (cont)

  • Preferences lock out – removed Preferences button from menu so users can not subscribe to bookmarks. All bookmark subscriptions are set up by Administrator

  • Logout button – Set up Logout button for users to close Portal. Did this because Lawson caches User ID’s and passwords unless all browser windows are closed. See Lawson Guru Letter:

Customizations cont1

Customizations (cont)

  • All customizations were made via a copy of default.xml and logon.htm to prevent over-writing with updates

  • Removed search box to lock down security for generic users

  • Future customizations of our customized xml’s require deletion of username.xml files. Portal refresh is required on logon and new username.xml is created

  • MSP applies are carefully monitored for changes to above files as well as bookmark changes

Benefits open enrollment

Benefits Open Enrollment

Items to consider:

  • Cycles.htm will need to be edited for spending account enrollments to work

  • New benefit rates must be entered into Lawson much earlier than when using manual enrollment

  • “No coverage” plan must be set up for each OE plan type

  • Salary information and entire SSN prints on confirmation statement – make sure employees are aware of this in case they do not have a dedicated printer
