24 Manager Self Service

This chapter contains the following topics:

24.1 Understanding Manager Self Service

Managers can accomplish many tasks with less effort and time by using self-service procedures. These procedures might be available through a company intranet site or from your software menus for employees and managers. This approach reduces document handling between employees and the human resources department by enabling employees to access information, forms, and services using desktop computers.

Managers can use self-service and Managers Workbench (P08712) programs to perform a wide range of tasks for which they are responsible. These tasks include:

  • Requesting employee status changes.

  • Running managerial reports.

  • Assigning delegates.

  • Generating a graphic organizational chart and reviewing the hierarchical structure of the jobs within an organization.

  • Reviewing jobs and job competencies in an organization.

  • Performing a gap analysis of employee and job competencies.

  • Entering employee competency information.

  • Reviewing employee profiles.

  • Reviewing employee information, such as name and address, time entry, emergency contacts, paid time off balances, and skill competencies.

Additional self-service programs are available for managers to use that are not included in the Managers Workbench. These programs, accessible from the Employee and Manager self service menus, are:

  • Upcoming Reviews by Supervisor (P052200).

  • Employee Setup Workbench (P08710).

  • Auto Deposit Instructions (P055011).

  • Competency Self Service (P05130).

The type of information that is available on your self-service website is defined by your company. For example, your company might allow employees to make address changes but not benefits changes. Only selected applications can be enabled on an intranet site.

Many of the manager self-service programs employ Workflow. Workflow is an email based system that automates tasks by using email to reduce the processing time that it normally takes to complete a task. For example, managers can initiate an employee's promotion using Status Change from Managers Workbench. When the process is initiated, a series of messages within Workflow are sent to each manager who must be informed about the change and who must approve the change.

24.1.1 Compensation Management Self-Service Considerations

Your organization might have set up the Compensation Management system as a self-service application that enables you to manage the salary reviews of the employees who report to you. If you access the Compensation Management system from a self-service program, such as the Manager's Workbench (P08712), you can make salary recommendations within your own management hierarchy only. The supervisor field is disabled.

24.2 Using the Managers Workbench Program

This section provides an overview of using the Managers Workbench program, lists the forms used with the Managers Workbench program, and discusses how to set processing options for Managers Workbench (P08712).

24.2.1 Understanding Managers Workbench

You can perform many common supervisory tasks from a centralized location using Managers Workbench (P08712). From this location, your employee information is easily accessible, enabling you to analyze job and employee information, initiate changes, and save time when you need reports that can be processed as a list or on an individual basis. Your own personal employee information is also available from within this application.

Using the Managers Workbench, you have quick, easy access to information that you can review and use for budgeting, planning, decision making, and approving. This application uses workflow to save time when you are communicating changes and obtaining required authorizations.

Note:

The Managers Workbench separates access to your personal information from access to your employees' information by the use of form and row menus. For example, when you select options from a form menu, you can access your own personal information and make a variety of changes. When you select options from a row menu, the system displays your employees' information. A manager can view an employee's information, but generally cannot make changes directly to an employee's record.

These options are available in the Managers Workbench:

Manager Function Options
Self Service You can select My Self Service Ap from the Form menu, and then perform these tasks:
  • Review or change your name and address information.

  • Review your time entry.

  • Review your paid time off.

  • Review or update your emergency contacts.

  • Review and enter your competency information.

When you first select one of your employees and then select Self Service Apps. from the Row menu, you can perform these tasks:

  • Review employee name and address information.

  • Review and revise employee time entry.

  • Review employee paid time off.

  • Review employee emergency contacts.

  • Review and revise employee competency information.

You can also review employee data, analyze employee skills, and prepare for employee coaching sessions with these self-service options.

Status Change Status Change includes options for performing these tasks:
  • Requesting a promotion.

  • Changing an employee's assigned location.

  • Changing an employee's department or supervisor.

  • Changing an employee's job status.

  • Requesting a leave of absence.

This centralized approach to managing employee changes enables you to initiate, review, and approve changes for your employees. The User Defined status change category enables your Human Capital Management department to set up an additional employee change category. For example, you might want to create a new category for compensation review.

Reports These reports are available from the Managers Workbench (P08712):
  • Managers Reports (P08740).

  • Headcount (R081021).

  • Organization Chart (P08713 or P08713W).

  • Turnover Reports (R080430).

  • Phone List (R080115).

  • Time Entry (R053001).

Managers Reports (P08740) is a preset list of reports, defined by your human capital management department, that you can use to meet frequent reporting requirements. Your human capital management administrator can create one or more versions that include reports that you commonly use.

Use these reports to help meet your needs for organizational reporting, planning, review, and management of your employees. You can generate reports for the employee group below your job level, or you can select a subordinate management level and generate reports with that level at the top of the hierarchy.

You can use the Submitted Reports option on the Form menu to review the status of reports that you have previously submitted.

Supplemental Data Depending on what kinds of supplemental data you maintain, your human capital management administrator can set up databases for each system. You can use supplemental data to track information that is not included in the standard master tables. For example, you might want to track information such as products purchased, sales information, delivery methods, internal ratings, or work history. Supplemental-database code information is stored in the Supplemental Database Setup table (F00090).
Gap Analysis Use Gap Analysis to help you compare the skill competencies that are required for a job and the current competencies of an employee. Often used in conjunction with Job Competencies In An Organization, these functions are useful for organizational planning and in preparation for employee performance reviews.
Performance Use Employee Performance to create new appraisals, review and change current appraisals, and review historical appraisal information. You can review your personal performance appraisal by choosing Performance from the Form menu.

When you are using the performance options, you can also access supplemental data from the Performance menu to record additional information that you want to track.

Employee Profile Use Employee Profile to review employee data that is obtained from the Employee Master Information table (F060116). You can also use this function to contact your Human Capital Management department about updates to an employee record.
Attachments Attachments can be added as part of the setup function to provide information for all managers who use any of the Managers Workbench applications. These can include instructions, reminders, or miscellaneous information.

You can also add attachments while using Managers Workbench applications. For example, you might want to remind yourself about information that will help you plan for reviews or record action steps that you want to remember regarding specific employees. You can also attach graphic files. The attached files are linked to your address number and an employee address number so that if either position changes, another manager cannot view the notes that you attach.

Jobs In An Organization Use Jobs In An Organization to review how each job fits into the hierarchical levels of the organizational structure. You can use this information to plan for new jobs and to determine the competencies that are associated with each job. When you access this program from Managers Workbench, you can review information, but you cannot change it.
Compensation Review Use this program to review compensation data for any of your employees. The program provides you with a workbench that provides access to programs for:
  • Viewing and changing salary recommendations.

  • Viewing the salary budget allocation, budget spent, and budget remaining by increase types.

  • Submitting salary recommendations up to the next level supervisor for approval

  • Returning salary recommendations down to the previous level supervisor for salary rework.

  • Providing access for a human capital management administrator to view or change salary recommendations of a specified supervisor with the use of a processing option

Employee Letters When you need to send written information to employees, you can use the mail merge features of your software to efficiently produce letters that you mail to all of your employees. For example, you can quickly generate a letter to a group of your employees who are included in a new marketing campaign. Or you can generate a mass mailing to all of your employees to explain a new benefit option. This option runs the Web Mail Merge application, which enables you to work with the letters that you have generated.
Job Competencies In An Organization Use Job Competencies In An Organization to see how job competencies are assigned to the hierarchical levels of the organizational structure. You can use this information to determine the competencies that apply to you and the employees who report to you.
Approvals Use Approvals to expedite the workflow process for your employees. Use this form menu option to review all Status Change approval requests, add comments, and take appropriate action.
Delegates Use My Delegates, on the Form menu, to set up subordinates who are authorized to use Managers Workbench in your absence or to enable others to perform managerial functions. After the initial setup, the delegates that you select can access Managers Workbench at your organizational level and then perform functions at an authority level that you specify to help you review, change, and approve employee information.
Attachments Attachments can be added as part of the setup function to provide information for all managers who use any of the Managers Workbench applications. These can include instructions, reminders, or miscellaneous information.

You can also add attachments while using Managers Workbench applications. For example, you might want to remind yourself about information that will help you plan for reviews or record action steps that you want to remember regarding specific employees. You can also attach graphic files. The attached files are linked to your address number and an employee address number so that if either position changes, another manager cannot view the notes that you attach.

24.4 Changing an Employee Status

This section provides an overview of employee status change and discusses how to set processing options for Employee Status Change (P08720).

24.4.1 Understanding Employee Status Change

Changing an Employee's Status, one of the applications within Manager's Workbench (P08712), provides a centralized approach to implementing common changes for employees who report to you or to one of your subordinate managers. Using this approach, you can manage some of the most common types of employee changes with a minimum of time and effort.

Using this approach, when you select the type of change desired for a specified employee and implement a change, the system automatically notifies your HR department and any other managers who must approve the change. You will also be able to review the status of the approvals to stay current with the changes that you have initiated.

You can perform any of these preset tasks:

  • Promote an employee.

  • Change an employee's job status.

  • Relocate an employee.

  • Change an employee department or supervisor.

  • Review a leave of absence.

In addition to the five preset tasks listed previously, two additional options exist that you can define in user-defined code (UDC) 08/S4 to meet your specific requirements. For example, you might define this option to change an employee's salary. Working with your HR administrator, you can set up similar tasks or change any of the existing, preset tasks to use any combination of the data in the Employee Master Information table (F060116).

To initiate an employee change, you can use the Employee Status Change program (P08720). You normally access this program through the Manager's Workbench program (P08712). The system automatically displays tabs and fields on the change request form that are required to complete the change that you request.

    Fields that are not applicable to the type of change that is selected are not available for changes.

  9. Select each of the remaining tabs and enter changes as appropriate.

    Because a limited number of fields can be placed on a form at one time, the eligibility code, user-defined dates, and category code fields are on a different form. When you select the Category Codes/User Dates tab, this form is automatically displayed.

  10. After you review information for all tabs and complete the changes, perform one of these actions:

    • Click OK to save, but not submit, the request.

      This option enables you to review the request at a later date and then submit it for approval.

    • Click Submit to save and submit the request for approval.

      After you submit a request, you cannot revise it except to enter a new change reason or to change the effective on date.

The system automatically generates workflow messages in the Employee Work Center for the appropriate managers. The system updates the Employee Master Information table (F060116) when the required approvals are complete.

If you need to change a request after you have submitted it, but before it has been approved, cancel the request and create a new one.

24.5 Reviewing an Employee Status Change

This section provides an overview of an employee status change review and discusses how to:

  • Set processing options for Status Change Review (P087201).

  • Review an employee status change request.

24.5.1 Understanding an Employee Status Change Review

You can use the Status Change Review program (P087201) to examine a request that you have previously submitted, review notes that relate to a request, or follow up on a request that has not been approved within a reasonable amount of time.

If a request has not been approved, you can use the escalation monitor to determine possible reasons for the delay and restart the process. Use one of these options, depending on the apparent cause of the delay:

  • Escalation monitor. Provides a report of all halted workflow processes and moves the requests to the next stage.

  • Restart. Restarts a specific status change process, terminating any active process instances.

If you need to make additional changes to a request after you have submitted it, but before it has been approved, cancel the request and create a new one.

The system automatically generates workflow messages in the Employee Work Center (P012501) for the appropriate managers. The system updates the Employee Master Information table (F060116) when the required approvals are complete.

24.5.2 Forms Used to Review an Employee Status Change

To generate a report of all instances of all halted processes, select Escalation Monitor from the Form menu. To restart a change process and delete pending workflow messages that are linked to the process, select a record, and then select Restart from the Row menu.


24.5.3 Setting Processing Options for Status Change Review (P087201)

Processing options enable you to specify the default processing for programs and reports.

24.5.3.1 Processing

Use these processing options to activate potential application activities that provide managers with a broader range of control over workflow and management options.

1. Allow Delegates

Specify whether you want to allow the use of delegates. If a manager has defined a delegate, this employee can perform certain tasks on his or her behalf. Values are:

0: No

1: Yes

2. Allow Escalating Halted Activities

Specify whether to allow the user to escalate halted workflow activities. The Status Change workflow stops the process during a payroll lockout or to wait for a specified effective date. If the process is waiting for an effective date, escalating causes the changes to be committed to the database immediately instead of waiting for the effective date. Escalating a payroll lockout reverifies the lockout status before allowing the process to continue. Values are:

0: No

1: Yes

3. Allow Restarting Active Processes

Specify whether to allow the user to restart an active Status Change process. The Status Change workflow process might stop for any of these reasons:

  • Payroll lockout

  • Effective date

  • Delay of management approval

When the workflow has stopped for any of these reasons, performing a restart completes the active workflow activity and deletes the records in the Approval History table. The status of the Status Change record changes to pending. The workflow process is completed but not deleted. Values are:

0: No

1: Yes

4. Allow Aborting Active Processes

Specify whether to allow the user to terminate an active Status Change process. When the Status Change workflow process stops for a payroll lockout, an effective date, or a management approval, terminating will update the status of the Status Change record to 07 (canceled by user) and complete the active workflow. Values are:

0: No

1: Yes

5. Employee Status Change Version (P08720)

Specify which version of the Employee Status Change application (P08720) you want to use. The version controls the workflow process, retrieving the correct processing options for mail box and the final status.

If no value is entered, the system uses version ZJDE0001.

24.5.3.2 User Level

Use this processing option to specify the type of user who will be accessing the application.

1. User Level

Specify whether the application will be used by management, employees, or HR personnel. Values are:

Blank: Management

1: Employees and management

2: HR personnel

24.6 Assigning a Delegate

This section provides an overview of delegate assignment, lists a prerequisite, and discusses how to:

  • Set processing options for Managers Delegates (P08750).

  • Assign a delegate.

24.6.1 Understanding Delegate Assignment

You can use the Managers Delegates program (P08750) to designate other employees as delegates. You can also define the level of authority that is assigned to each delegate so that the delegate can assist you with tasks and projects when you are away from your office or when you just need additional assistance. When work that you assign to others requires system access with an authority level comparable to a management level, you can assign delegate status to them up to your own level. When you designate an employee as a delegate for you, that employee can assist with routine tasks or projects from a predefined set of applications that will enable the use of delegates. For example, you might want a delegate to run a list of weekly reports or conduct a job analysis project. You can also delegate an employee to perform your supervisory functions such as approving leave requests for all other employees for the periods of time that you will be absent from work.

Assigning delegates permits you to designate another employee to access your software with system authorization at a level that you assign. You can assign an authority level up to, and including, your own. For example, you can designate an employee to perform many of the same functions that you would ordinarily perform by assigning appropriate authorization types. The system includes five preset authorization types and enables you to add configured authorization types.

24.6.2 Prerequisite

Set up additional authorization types, if needed, in UDC 08/AY.

24.6.3 Forms Used to Assign Delegates

Form Name FormID Navigation Usage
Work With Managers Employees W08712A Manager Self-Service menu (G05BMSS1), Managers Workbench

My Delegates, Form menu.

Select an employee record.
Work With Delegates W08750A Click OK. Enter delegate information. You can enter information for the same employee as many times as needed, assigning an additional authorization type for each entry.

24.6.4 Setting Processing Options for Managers Delegates (P08750)

Processing options enable you to specify the default processing for programs and reports.

24.6.4.1 Defaults

Use this processing option to specify whether the Manager field is accessible and the address book value can be changed. When the value is set to the default value of1 or blank, the system automatically detects the address book number of the manager who is currently signed onto the system, disables the field, and displays only delegates who are subordinate to the displayed manager. When the value is set to 2, the system activates the Manager field, does not automatically detect an address book number, and displays the subordinate delegates for any manager whose address book number is entered.

1. User Level

Specify whether to display delegates for different managers or to display the delegates for only one manager. Values are:

1:Manager field is disabled. This is the default value.

2:Manager field is enabled.

24.6.5 Assigning a Delegate

Access the Work With Delegates form.

To assign a delegate:

  1. On Work With Managers Employees, click Find to display your organizational hierarchy and your employees' records.

  2. Select My Delegates from the Form menu.

  3. On Work With Delegates, complete these fields:

    • Delegate Number

      Enter a number that identifies an entry in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Address Book system, such as employee, applicant, participant, customer, supplier, tenant, or location.

    • Authorization Type

      Enter a code that specifies the type of authorization that is given to a delegate.

    • Effective On

      Enter a future date when all changes will take effect or the date when the changes went into effect. If you do not enter a date in this field, the system uses the current date as the effective date.

    • Ending Date

      Enter a future date on which the authorization expires.

    • Authorization Level

      Enter the number of levels in the organizational structure below the delegate's manager that the delegate can review and make changes to employee records. For example, a value of 0 allows the delegate to access only employees that report directly to the delegate's manager. A value of 1 allows the delegate to access the records of employees that report to the manager's immediate subordinates.

  4. Repeat step 3 for the same employee as many times as needed, assigning an additional authorization type for each entry.

  5. When you are finished assigning delegates, click OK.

24.7 Reviewing Upcoming Employee Reviews by Supervisor

This section provides an overview of upcoming employee reviews, lists a prerequisite, and discusses how to review upcoming employee review information.

24.7.1 Understanding Upcoming Employee Reviews

Managers can sign in to the self-service intranet site to search for all upcoming employee reviews. This process can occur in one of these ways:

  • You can sign in to the self-service intranet site and search for upcoming employee reviews using the Upcoming Reviews by Supervisor program (P052200).

    You can search for employees based on these fields: Business Unit, Pay Class, Type of Review, and all review dates and payroll status fields. The system automatically displays employees that report directly to you by your supervisor number.

  • You can sign in to the self-service intranet site and access the Upcoming Reviews By Supervisor program after receiving an electronic message about your upcoming employee reviews.

    Instead of having to search for specific employees, the system automatically completes the grid with the employees that you are responsible for reviewing soon.

    The electronic notification process occurs after the system administrator runs the Upcoming Reviews program (R052202). If the processing options for Upcoming Reviews are set up correctly, the program initiates Enterprise Workflow Management, which notifies all supervisors about their upcoming reviews by email. The system administrator can run the program automatically on a certain date by setting a processing option appropriately and setting up the program to run in the Scheduler Workbench.

Different versions of the report can be run to report overdue reviews and reviews for all employees. In these cases, you would not receive email messages. However, the system would still supply the Work With Upcoming Reviews by Supervisor form that displays the employees that you are responsible for reviewing.

After the system displays your employees with upcoming reviews, you can select an employee record and select an option from the Row menu to review profile, supplemental, employment, or organizational data for the employee. You can access this information if your JD Edwards EnterpriseOne security system is set up to provide this access.

24.7.2 Prerequisite

If the Upcoming Reviews program (R052202) has been run, you need to review only the information on the report that appears when you sign in to your self-service site.

See "Working With Performance Appraisals, Creating Batch Performance Appraisals (R087722), Running the Upcoming Reviews Report (R052202)" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications Human Resources Implemenation Guide.

24.8 Entering Data for Verification-of-Employment Letters

This section provides an overview of data for verification-of-employment letters, lists a prerequisite, and discusses how to:

  • Set processing options for Review Requests for Verification of Employment (P05003).

  • Enter data for verification-of-employment letters.

24.8.1 Understanding Data for Verification-of-Employment Letters

The Review Requests for Verification of Employment program (P05003) allows only human resource administrators or system administrators to enter employment data for verification-of-employment letters.

Entering the employment data is the second part of a two-step process for processing a verification-of-employment letter. The employee must first request a letter by entering personal information on the Request Information tab of the Verification of Employment Data form. When an employee enters a request, the system copies the employee's job and compensation information from the Job Information table (F08001) to the Employment Data tab.

If Enterprise Workflow Management is enabled through your processing options, after receiving an email that a verification-of-employment request is pending, you can inquire on the request, change the employee's employment data if necessary, and process the letter. You can also email the completed letter to the contact person whom the employee has requested.

24.8.2 Prerequisite

Have your human capital management system administrator set the processing option for Verification of Employment to 3. This processing option enables you to change the job information fields on the Verification of Employment Data form, if necessary.

24.8.3 Forms Used to Enter Data for Verification-of-Employment Letters

Form Name FormID Navigation Usage
Work With Verification Of Employment Requests W05003A Employee Self Service (G05BESS1), Verification of Employment

On Work With Verification Of Employment Requests, click Select.

Locate an employee record.
Verification Of Employment Data W05003B On Verification Of Employment Data, select the Employment Data tab.

Click OK.

Review and change information as required.

If you clicked the Save Document button, the system saves the letter to the C:\TEMP\ directory.

You can print the Verification of Employment letter that automatically appears. You can also email the letter.


24.8.4 Setting Processing Options for Review Requests for Verification of Employment (P05003)

Processing options enable you to specify the default processing for programs and reports.

24.8.4.1 User Level

Use this processing option to specify the organizational level of the user who will perform verification of employment functions.

This list describes consequences and additional setup issues that you should be aware of when you select one of the three processing options:

Typical User Setup Issues
1: Employee Entering 1 instructs Workflow to notify the recipient of the pending request after the employe enters the request information. The recipient completes the verification-of-employment letter and can print the letter or send it by email to the requested contact person. This value starts the process with the employee and finishes it with the Workflow recipient. If you enter this value, you must set up your recipient in the processing option on the Workflow Setup tab.
2: HRM clerk Entering 2 instructs Workflow to notify the recipient of the completed letter after the human resource management clerk enters the request information. The recipient approves the letter and can print the letter or send it by email directly to the contact person that the employee requested. This value assumes that the process has already started with the employee. The HR clerk does not receive a Workflow message but sends the completed letter through Workflow to a recipient for approval. If you select this value, you must set up your recipient in the processing option on the Workflow Setup tab.
3: HRM administrator Entering 3 deactivates Workflow in the Verification of Employment program. Because the human resources administrator starts and completes all requests, no need for Workflow exists. The HR administrator can delete a request and also print the letter or send it by email directly to the contact person that the employee requested.

1. User Level:

Specify whether this program will be used by an employee, an HR clerk, or an HR administrator. Values are:

Blank: Employee

1: Employee.

2: HR clerk.

3: HR Administrator (This option will not send a request through Workflow.)

Note:

If this program is used by an employee or an HR clerk, the approval process is routed through workflow, where the Workflow Setup tab must be set up.

24.8.4.2 Workflow Setup

Use this processing option to specify the user or users who will process verification of employment requests.

1. Address Number of VOE request processor (HRM):

Specify the address number of the HR person (or a distribution list) who processes requests for verification of employment.

24.8.5 Entering Data for Verification-of-Employment Letters

Access the Work With Verification Of Employment Data form.

To enter employment data for verification-of-employment letters:

  1. On Work With Verification Of Employment Requests, complete these fields and click Find to locate an employee's request:

    • Employee ID

    • Request Date

      Enter the date that an item is scheduled to arrive or that an action is scheduled for completion. If you are adding a request for a verification of employment letter, enter today's date. If you are reviewing a request, enter the date when you initially added the request.

  2. If you need to delete a record, select the record and click Delete.

  3. Select the employee's record and click Select.

  4. On Verification Of Employment Data, select the Employment Data tab.

  5. If your processing option is set to 3, select one or more of these options, depending on the contact method that the employee has selected.

    • Print VOE Letter

      Select an option to print the verification of employment letter.

      The system prints the verification of employment letter when you click OK.

    • Delete Document

      Select an option that specifies whether you want the system to save the letter when you print it. If you select this option, the letter is deleted when the you click OK.

    • E-Mail VOE Letter

      Select an option that specifies whether the system sends the verification of employment letter to the requested email address.

      The system sends the verification-of-employment letter when you click OK.

      This option is enabled only when you activate the Print Verification-of-Employment Letter option also. You must also have the E-Mail box on the Requisition Information tab checked and a value in the E-Mail Address field.

  6. Review and change these fields if necessary:

    • Date Started

      Enter the date on which the employee actually reported to work for the most recent period of hire. When an employee initially begins working, the default value is the original hire date. If no original hire date exists, the system uses the current date. This field can be updated multiple times if, for example, an employee is a seasonal worker.

      For the calculation tables in the Payroll system and the eligibility tables and date codes in the Human Resources system, the system also uses this date as a start date when it calculates deductions, benefits, and accruals.

    • Job Type/Step Description

      Enter the description that is associated with the job type and job step. This description is stored in the Job Information table (F08001).

    • Continued Employment

      Enter a value that indicates the employee's potential for continuing employment with the organization. Values are stored in UDC 05/V3.

    • Date Of Last Raise

      Enter the date of the employee's last raise. For the standalone HR system, this is the date when you update salary and wages. If you also have the Payroll system, this date is automatically updated when a payroll is run. You define pay effective dates using the Pay Rate Information form.

    • Amount Of Increase

      Enter an amount of increase that is the difference between two values. A negative value indicates a decrease.

      A monetary increase a result of a raise occurring on the date of last raise.

    • Date of Next Raise

      Enter the date that the hourly or annual pay rate for the employee increases. The new rate goes into effect after a payroll cycle finishes with a pay period end date on or after the date of the next raise.

    • Pay Period Salary

      Enter a value that represents the pay period salary. Pay period salary is calculated by dividing the annual salary by the number of pay periods.

    • Comment

      Enter a comment, description, or remark. This entry can be up to 40 characters in length.

    • Pay Frequency

    • Pay Class (H/S/P)

  7. Review and change these compensation fields for the Current Year, One Year Prior, and Two Years Prior fields if necessary:

    • Base

      Enter an amount that is paid from all pay types considered to be base salary for the current year.

    • Overtime

      Enter an amount that is paid from all pay types considered to be overtime pay for the current year.

    • Commission

      Enter an amount that is paid from all pay types considered to be commission pay for the current year.

    • Bonus

      Enter an amount of bonus pay that the employee earned, year-to-date in the current year. The system calculates this amount by searching the employee's timecards for pay types that represent bonus pay. It then calculates the amount of the employee's earnings during the year that were attributed to the bonus pay types.

      Note:

      When you set up a pay type, you use the Pay Type Category field (PTCT) to identify it as part of a related group of pay types, such as regular pay, bonus pay, commissions, and so on. You define pay type categories in UDC 06/PC.
    • Other

      Enter an amount to be paid from all pay types that are considered to be other pay for the current year. Other pay is anything other than base salary, overtime, commission, and bonus.

  8. Click OK.

  9. Select Print from the Form menu.

  10. If you have selected the option to send the letter, select Send or Cancel on the prompt on the E-Mail Confirmation form asking whether you want to send the request by email.

  11. If you have selected the option to email the letter, click Send or Cancel on the prompt on the E-Mail Confirmation form asking whether you want to send the request by email.

24.9 Using Managers Reports

This section provides an overview of managers reports and discusses how to run predetermined reports.

24.9.1 Understanding Managers Reports

Managers and their delegates can use the Managers Reports program (P08740), to automate required reporting procedures and save time. Managers can select reports from a preset list to meet frequent reporting requirements. Two reporting approaches are available:

  • Reports by category

  • Individual reports

The Category option includes a configured list of reports that can save time. For example, if a manager needs to review a group of payroll reports at the end of each payroll cycle, the Payroll report category can be selected and the system prints all reports in the Payroll category. The reports that are included in each category are defined in the Managers Reports Setup program (P08741). Managers can also select reports within a list and specify the order in which they print to meet specific requirements. You can add to the list of categories by modifying UDC 08/RP. You can also use the Managers Reports Setup program to create Manager Reports versions that include preset lists of reports.

Managers can select and print any of the individual reports, such as Headcount or Phone List, by selecting the report name, reviewing the print destination on the Printer Selection form, and then clicking OK.

The Generate Graphic Org Chart program (P08713W) prints a picture of the organization, starting at the requesting manager's level.

The supplemental data report produces information from the Supplemental Data table (F00092), linked to the Employee Master Information table (F060116). For example, you might want to print a report on skills or competencies for an employee. You can review the supplemental information that is available for this report in the Employee Master program (P0801).

Some reports are designed to run for a specific employee and enable you to pass the address book number of the employee to the report through the report data structure. When a report meets this criteria and the report data structure mapping has been set up in the Managers Reports Setup application, the DS Mapped column will contain a Yes. When you run a report that has the data structure mapped, the report will be run for the address book number in the Employee field. If the Employee field is blank, the report will be run for the address book number in the Manager field.

You can also create and name your own custom list of report that contains a selection or reports from multiple categories. You can then recall this list and submit the entire list or individual reports on the list.

24.9.2 Forms Used to Run Managers Reports

24.10 Setting Up Information for New Employees

This section provides an overview of new employee setup, lists prerequisites, and discusses how to:

  • Set processing options for Employee Setup Workbench (P08710).

  • Add an employee record using employee setup.

  • Initiate employee setup

  • Approve a setup process or task.

  • Review and revise the setup status

24.10.1 Understanding New Employee Setup

When you hire an individual, many administrative tasks must be completed before the employee starts working. The process of setting up a new employee can involve many different people, paper forms, and approvals, and equipment must be set up for the new employee. Delays in the paperwork or approvals sometimes impede preparation for the employee and contribute to lost productivity.

You can use Managers Employee Setup to automate most communication that is associated with preparation for a new employee's arrival. Using this automated approach enables you to set up and distribute tasks and route approvals efficiently. You can track each process to spot potential problems and avoid delays. Workflow enhances the setup processes. Workflow routes approval and notification messages to required people about tasks that they need to complete by a specific date. This process tracks critical dates and notifies the originator when delays occur.

Using Workflow to help complete the setup process for new employees reduces the risk of misplacing paper forms, informs appropriate personnel of tasks that should be completed by a certain date, and decreases time spent preparing for a new employee.

You can avoid lost productivity by reviewing each setup process to resolve possible delays and ensure that all preparation will be completed on time. When you need to reduce the setup interval, you don't have to wait until all the hiring processes are complete to start preparing for the new employee. As soon as the address book number has been entered into the system, you can create setup tasks to ensure that the new employee can start work on the first day of employment.

When you initiate the process, Workflow sends a series of approvals according to the setup tasks that you entered. Each setup task can do one or more of these activities: run a report, send an email message, create a work order, or start a Workflow process.

24.10.1.1 Add an Employee Record Using Employee Setup

You must add an employee record to the database before you can initiate the employee setup process. If you have already added an employee record, proceed to the step to initiate employee setup.

When you add an employee record using the Employee Quick Hire program (P060116Q), the system automatically adds an employee record to the Address Book Master table (F0101) and an employee setup record to the Employee Setup Master table (F08710). If you are adding an employee record using any of these programs, see the referenced information for adding an employee record, and then proceed to the step to initiate employee setup.

  • Employee Master (P0801).

  • Applicant Entry (P08401).

  • Personic or any third-party software that updates the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File table (F060116Z).

    Note:

    When you use one of these programs, the system does not automatically add an employee setup record to the Employee Setup Master table. An F08710 record is added only if the employee is added through Quick Hire. To add a setup record after you add an employee record, you must access the Employee Setup Workbench program and initiate the process for employee setup.

24.10.1.2 Initiate the Employee Setup Process

After you add an employee record, you can assign setup tasks to the employee's setup record and then initiate the setup process.

Depending on how one of the processing options has been set, the entire employee setup process might require approval. Workflow will deliver an approval form for the process and wait for confirmation before it starts individual tasks that you have assigned to the employee record.

Most setup tasks are specific to the location where the employee will be working. You can select tasks from a default task list that displays setup tasks for every employee by job type and job step. You can also select tasks from a setup task list that includes all defined tasks. You can change tasks to configure the employee's setup. However, this could reinstate the process approval depending on the task specifications.

Each setup task can do one or more of these activities, depending on how the tasks have been set up:

  • Run a report.

  • Send an email message.

  • Create a work order.

  • Start a Workflow process.

Information that you enter in the tabbed area of the Employee Setup Entry form updates the Employee Setup Master table (F08710). Information that you enter in the detail area of the form updates the Employee Setup Tasks table (F08711).

24.10.1.3 Approve a Setup Process or Task

After you initiate employee setup, Workflow completes one or both of these procedures depending on how the processing options are set:

  • Obtains a process approval.

  • Obtains a task approval for each employee setup task that includes an approval requirement.

If the system requires a process approval, Workflow begins for each employee setup task, but waits until it obtains the process approval before continuing.

Workflow can complete any or all of these processes for each setup task:

  • Create a work order.

  • Create a report.

  • Send an email.

  • Start an additional Workflow process.

When specified in the processing option, the system requires a process approval for the entire setup process. When the system requires a process approval, it sets the task status to Pending (as defined in Setup Task Status list 08/S1) until the designated manager approves the process. When the designated manager approves the setup process, the system resets the process status to Approved (this is the status in the F08710 record) and restarts each task within the process. If a task has a future start date, the task workflow process halts and waits for the schedule activation date. The Escalation Monitor restarts halted tasks with a future start date on the appropriate date.

Individual tasks and changes to tasks might also require approval. For example, if the task for installing an employee telephone does not require an approval, Workflow does not send an email approval form. However, you can set up this task to require an approval if a manager changes the task to install a phone with multiple features.

When a task requires approval, Workflow first verifies that the manager who entered the employee setup record also entered data in the required fields that identify the location of the new employee's work space. If values are missing, Workflow delays the process and sends an email message to the manager. When the manager enters the required data, the workflow process is restarted and sends an email approval form to the approver who has been specified for the task. The system then sets the task status to WA or Waiting for Approval (defined in Setup Task Status list 08/S2) until it is approved. When the designated manager approves the task, the system sets the task status to Approved and starts processing the task.

When the task is approved, the activation date is reached, and the required location information is entered, workflow resumes and activates the task. This action changes the status of the task record (F08711) to A or Activated and carries out the predefined task activities:

  • Sends an email message.

  • Runs a configured report.

  • Creates a work order.

  • Starts an additional Workflow process.

An email message can contain the employee's name and location information, the description of the task, a requested completion date, and the manager's comments about the task. When a report is one of the task activities, an email is sent to the task recipient that contains an active link that, when selected, submits the report. You can also link a work order to the setup task.

A task remains in the Activated status until the task recipient finishes working on the task, returns to the Managers Employee Setup application, and selects Completed from the Row menu.

24.10.1.4 Review and Revise the Setup Process

You can review and revise the task status for the entire setup process and for individual tasks. You can delete a task if it is in the Pending status. You can cancel a task if it is in the Waiting, Approved, or Active status. If you do not activate the employee setup process when you add an employee setup record, you can activate the process after your review.

Managers who are responsible for approving the process for new employee setup or the individual tasks within the process should complete these procedures.

24.11 Approving Automatic Deposit Information

This section provides an overview of automatic deposit information approval and discusses how to enter automatic deposit approvals.

24.11.1 Understanding Automatic Deposit Information Approval

Employees can use self-service to enter and update some of their personal information, such as name and address, emergency contact, and so on. Some types of information that employees enter, such as automatic deposit and competency, must be reviewed and approved by someone else before the database is updated.

If you are a representative of your organization's payroll department, you might be responsible for approving the automatic deposit information that employees add or change. In some cases, the routing number for an employee's bank might not exist in the user-defined code list for routing numbers (06/BC). You can use self service to approve automatic deposit information and the addition of new routing numbers.

If you are a representative of the payroll department, you might be responsible for approving the automatic deposit information that employees enter through self service. If Enterprise Workflow Management is enabled, you receive a message in the Employee Work Center when automatic deposit information is awaiting your approval. You must verify that the employee correctly completed all of the necessary information, and then approve or disapprove the request. If necessary, you can enter a response to the employee. Workflow includes your response in the email message that notifies the employee of the status of the request.

24.12 Approving Bank Transit Information

This section provides an overview of bank transit information approval and discusses how to approve bank transit information.

24.12.1 Understanding Bank Transit Information Approval

Occasionally, when an employee enters automatic deposit information using self service, the employee might discover that the routing number for the bank where the account resides is not one of the valid values in the Routing Number field. In this case, the employee can submit a request to have the bank's routing number added to the list of values. If you are a representative of the payroll department, you might be responsible for approving the employee's request before the system adds the new bank number to UDC 06/BC.

If Enterprise Workflow Management is enabled, you receive a message in the Employee Message Center when bank information is awaiting your approval. You must verify that the employee correctly completed all of the necessary information, and then approve or disapprove the request. If necessary, you can enter a response to the employee. Workflow includes your response in the email message that notifies the employee of the status of the request.

When you approve the employee's request, the system updates UDC 06/BC.

      For U.S. banks, this number contains nine digits. If this number does not contain nine digits, you must contact the employee's financial institution to obtain the correct number.

      For Canadian banks, this number contains eight digits. Therefore, Canadian clients must enter the bank transit number with a leading zero.

      If you change this number for an employee, the system creates a prenote for the employee's next auto deposit.

24.13 Approving Competency Information

This section provides an overview of competency information approval and discusses how to approve self-service competency entries.

24.13.1 Understanding Competency Information Approval

Competency management is a method of categorizing and tracking the qualifications that employees have that make them competent to perform their job duties. These qualifications, such as knowledge, skills, and training, are called competencies.

As a manager, you can use self service to review competency information for your subordinates. You can also enter the level of proficiency that each employee demonstrates in these competencies.

Your organization uses competency management to track the competencies that each employee possesses and to compare these competencies with those that are required for the employee's job. Tracking employee competencies helps you create clear career goals and performance objectives for the employees who work for you.

To simplify the process of maintaining competency information, employees can use self service to enter and revise their own competency information. You might be responsible for approving the information that employees enter and entering the employee's level of proficiency in certain competencies. In this case, you receive a message in the Employee Message Center after an employee enters competency information. You must then review the information and enter a level of proficiency for each competency.

Note:

The self service employee cannot add competencies. This functionality is not open to the self service employees. You can maintain your own competency information which includes courses taken and the course provider but does not include the competencies themselves. The courses and providers must be maintained within an existing competency.

24.14 Approving Disability Status Information

This section provides an overview of disability information approval, and discusses how to approve disability information.

24.14.1 Understanding Disability Information Approval

Employees can use JD Edwards EnterpriseOne self-service applications to enter and update their disability status. When employees enter or update their disability status, it may be required that an authorized approver reviews and approves the updated information.

You can use JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Workflow Management to facilitate the process of obtaining approval for the disability status response submitted by an employee. After an employee submits the Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability Form CC-305, the system updates the F085590W work table with the data and triggers the workflow process. As part of the workflow process, the following events occur after the employee submits the employee self-service form:

  1. The system notifies the HR administrator, who is authorized to approve the disability status response submitted by the employee, that the response is pending approval.

  2. After the HR administrator approves or rejects the disability status response, the system updates the F085590W work table.

24.17 Approving Self-Service Timecards

This section provides an overview of self-service timecard review and approval and discusses how to approve timecards.

24.17.1 Understanding Self-Service Timecard Review and Approval

After employees enter self-service timecards into the system, managers must review those timecards. Using the Manager Review and Approval program (P051129), managers can review, change, reject, and approve employee timecards. Along with reviewing and approving timecards, managers can use this program to view a list of employees who are missing timecards for the specified period. You can also set up the review and approval process to be completed by manager delegates.

Managers or their delegates can review the timecards for a group of employees and approve or reject all of the timecards at once, or timecards can be approved, changed, or rejected individually. Managers can also select multiple timecards or employees to approve or reject at one time.

In addition to approving and rejecting timecards, managers also can assign the Paid - Not Approved status to timecards. This status is used for informational purposes, and the timecards that are assigned this status are processed in the same way that approved timecards are processed. Managers might use this status if a timecard is incorrect, but the approval deadline does not allow for the timecard to be changed and re-entered by the employee. Assigning the Paid - Not Approved status allows the system to pay the employee for the timecard. The manager would then need to follow up with the employee to ensure that the timecard information is corrected during a future pay period.

Managers also can enter comments and send email messages to employees in the review process. To add comments, a manager enters text into the Comments field. The system saves comments in the Leave Messaging and Audit table (F07630). You can review the comments by clicking a link in the Leave Comments Review field. A manager can use the Send E-Mail to Employee link on Self Service Manager Review and Approval to send a message to an employee. Managers might use this function to notify employees of the reason that a timecard was changed or rejected, or to remind employees who have not entered timecards for the period to enter their timecards before the deadline.

The system stores timecards that employees enter into the system in a temporary workfile called the Employee Transactions - Batch File table (F06116Z1). After the timecards are reviewed and approved or rejected, the Time Entry Batch Processor program (R05116Z1I) moves all of the timecards with an Approved or Paid Not Approved status into the Employee Transaction Detail File table (F06116). When timecards are in the Employee Transaction Detail File table, they can be processed in a payroll cycle.

Note:

To use the missing timecards option during the review and approval process, you must set the processing options for the Time Entry Self Service Director program (P051125) to enable that feature. To display a list of employees who have not entered timecards for the pay period, the system must search through the entire employee database to find all of the employees that report to the specified manager; therefore, this process might take a significant amount of processing time.

When processing options for the Time Entry MBF Processing Options program are set appropriately, administrators can designate timecards as public or private. When public timecards exist for employees, the system displays them for review. Managers and employees can click a link on the director form that displays the public timecard. Neither managers nor employees can modify a public timecard. Because the system supports multiple timecards for a work date, employees can enter an additional timecard for the same work date.

24.17.2 Forms Used to Approve Self-Service Timecards
