2 Setting Up Common Settings for Self-Service

This chapter contains the following topics:

2.1 Understanding Self-Service Web Pages

Employees access self-service through a series of web pages on your company intranet site that enable them to complete such tasks as requesting a verification-of-employment letter or changing name, address, and emergency contact information. In addition to employee functions, managers can also use the Manager's Workbench program (P08712) as a centralized location from which they can perform such tasks as changing employee status, personal self-service functions for managers, creation of delegates, and various reviews. These web pages correspond to self-service programs in your software.

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software provides web pages for some self-service programs. These pages are fully functional and you can use them without modification. You can also create customized self-service web pages. For example, if you want to put your own company's logo on the web pages, you need to create customized web pages.

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software provides these portlets to enable you to access self-service programs via web pages:

  • HR - Employee Career

  • HR - Manager Career

  • HR - Delegates

  • HR - Enhanced Employee Self Service

  • HR - New Employee

  • HR - Employee Performance Management

  • HR - My Workforce

  • HR - My Profile

  • HR - Paid Time Off

  • HR - Payment Review

  • HR - Global Leave Administration

  • HR - Time Entry

  • HR - Global Leave Approvals

  • HR - Payroll

These portlets are specialized forms that were created in Form Design Aid (FDA). You must use the eGenerator to generate these portlets in the WebClient_Portal.war file.

See"Generating JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Serialized Objects" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools 8.98 HTML Server Installation

"Generating Other Selected Objects Using JD Edwards EnterpriseOne " in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools 8.98 HTML Server Installation

"Generating an FDA-Created Portlet" in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools 8.98 HTML Server Installation.

After you generate the portlets, you can install the WebClient_Portal.war file in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Collaborative Portal and then add the portlets to pages in the Collaborative Portal.

2.2 Understanding Common Settings for Self-Service Setup

You use the common settings for human resources to control specific features of multiple human resources processes, such as benefits enrollment, compensation management, and self-service programs.

Setting up the common settings updates the Common Settings for HR Employee Self Service Programs table (F05004).

This table describes the common settings for data items in the Common Settings for HR Employee Self Service program (P05004). You can also use the P05004 program to activate system-level settings to activate the employee self-service software.
