Q: Why can’t I log into my LD Adjustor responsibility during payroll processing?

The payroll processes are very resource-intensive and take three days to complete in order to meet our payday deadlines. Each payroll run creates hundreds of thousands of distribution lines in the Labor Distribution module, which are then transferred to the general ledger and OGA. If users were in the system during this process, they would consume necessary resources and would see incomplete information. Once the LD Adjustor responsibility is re-enabled, users will see complete and accurate information.

Q: If the employee is in my department but is funded by other departments, will I be able to see the other departments’ funding accounts?

Yes. If you have access to the employee’s home department, you can see all of the employee’s funding sources.

Q: If I fund an employee that is not in my department, can I see their labor info with my LD responsibility?

No. LD security is based on HR Org. You can only see employees that belong to the Orgs that you have access to.
