Infor LN & Baan Tip of the Week: Job Groups in LN

In a scenario where performing job A depends on the result of job B, it is hard to decide at what time job A must be scheduled, and how long job B runs. To handle dependent jobs, you can now create a job group. Use the Job Groups (ttaad5140m000) session to create a job group. A job group has a name, with the same characteristics as a job name, and a description. The Status and User of the job group are handled automatically.

After creating the job group, the jobs are added to the group, approximately in the order the jobs must be performed. The first job in the group (with the lowest Group Number) determines the handling of the whole job group, such as execution date and whether the job group is being repeated. If the job group is not repeating, the job group and all non-repeating jobs in the job group are deleted when the job group has run.

The dependencies of the jobs in the job group are also determined. A job in the job group can only depend on a job in the same job group with a lower job number.

You can use the specific options in the Job Groups (ttaad5140m000 andttams5640m000) sessions to change the status of the job group. The job group statuses have the same meaning as the status of the jobs and the same status changes are allowed.

Note: Job groups are only handled by the BSE service Job Scheduler Service.

Infor LN & Baan Tip of the Week: Credit Checks for Business Partners

Did you know that you have several options for credit checks for your business partners?

Action-several options are available:

  • Always Hold (Credit)—the order will always be held until released
  • Never Hold (Credit)-the order will never be held
  • Check Credit—a credit check is performed at time of sales order entry, release to invoicing or at confirm shipment.  When this status is used, the check can be performed at one or all three steps.  The steps are only visible with this status.
  • Always Hold (Overdue Invoices)—the order will be held for overdue invoices until released.

Link the credit rating to the invoice to a business partner in the credit control session. You may also enter a credit limit. A credit limit of zero means unlimited credit.

Infor LN / Baan Tip of the Week: Deleting Records

To improve performance and reduce database growth, deleting records is highly effective. The disadvantage of deleting records is that data is no longer available. Usually, however, not all records need to be saved. For example, line activities are stored by warehouse. Normally, you do not need to keep these records. Therefore, after closing a warehouse order, line activities can be removed. The User's Guide for ERP LN Archiving describes several sessions you can use to delete old data. Other data such as items and business partners can be reviewed once in a while, after which you can delete the data you no longer need. For every order and contract table a session is available to archive and delete old orders. In these sessions, you can specify several characteristics to select the orders to be removed, such as date or status. Run these sessions on a regular basis.

Baan / LN tip of the Week: approving a new tax code

Prior to approving a new tax code, the system displays a message, “An approved tax code cannot be changed anymore. Continue?” This is concerning to end users if they take the message literally. The user can answer “Yes” to the question as it refers to the tax details, not the rates or ledger accounts. A user can always change the tax rate and ledger accounts after it has been approved. All taxing authorities change rates periodically, so it is logical that these could be updated as needed.

Baan / LN Tip: Pro Forma

Pro Forma invoices can be issued based on order or delivery. If you choose delivery, the pro forma can be linked to the final sales invoice through the sub-session “Related Invoices.”  However, this requires the sales order step “Release to Sales Order/Schedules to Invoicing” to be a manual step. If it is automated, the order will be sent to Invoicing 360 directly and the link to the final invoice will not be made.
