    We are looking to mass upload new hires into GHR.  Has anyone done this?  I am thinking we need to create a process flow to upload from files submitted to us.  Probably should have separate files for Employee, EmployeeContact, EmployeeAddress, WorkAssignment.  Is anyone else doing this?  Should we be looking at something other than process flow?  Any tables that I am missing and should consider?

     

    Thanks!!!

    You can use IPA to read a file to initiate Action Request forms. That is how we bring our recruitment actions into LTM for hire, rehire and transfer. We load with the recruiter as the initiator and let the form route back to the recruiters so they have one final review before approval. This helps with last minute supervisor, schedule, date changes. However, if you use IPA to initiate an action form, I believe the field defaults have to be replicated with value lookups in IPA. We like loading the forms so that the application logic takes care of populating the various tables natively once approved. This also records regular actions for turnover, exports, history, etc. If you wanted to push the data in without review, you could create an Action Extension version of the form and tie it to the ImmediateApproval flow.

    Just curious, is there a reason you couldn't use Infor Spreadsheet Designer?

    We've used Infor Spreadsheet Designer multiple times to load new hires in mass and it works pretty well. You I was able to load all details we needed with 1 upload spreadsheet.

    Spreadsheet designer does work for a basic hire, but we want more automation.  We have a high volume of rehires, so the IPA does multiple types of potential duplicate checking.  Also, the IPA does data quality checks on the inbound files.  We run in 3 scheduled recruitment action files per day.  One inbound file feeds in 3 action types.  The workflow approval  also sets related dates based on our rules.  This way our recruiters can complete a time sensitive hire process without waiting on someone else to load data.
