It is very important to understand the entire procedure to correctly configure both applications prior to the integration in all use cases. As such, careful consideration between WFR cost centers and staffing record data in this application is required to proceed without issues.
The Roster to Workforce Ready Time Entry Export Settings are used to map roster time and labor entries from this application to WFR cost centers for the purposes of feeding and automatically populating WFR employee timesheets1 or schedules2.
To configure web services between applications and export work code related time entries follow these steps:
Name - the name for the cost center entered here will show on the WFR timesheet Cost Center 1,2,3... column. The Name is for display purposes in WFR.
External ID - this field is a unique link to an external application for integration purposes. A n external application could be TeleStaff or Planner. For example suppose you are mapping the Unit abbreviation used in TeleStaff, then the abbreviation for that Unit is typed in the External ID field. Max length: 30 characters.
To allow this application to apply time towards the selected cost center tree, select the check box Allow Time Allocation Towards This in Settings.
Version 6+ go to Setup > System > Import Manager > Ongoing Imports > Integration Type choose Workforce Ready.
Version 7+ go to Setup > System > Import Manager > Integrations> Integration Type choose Workforce Ready .
The entire export process will fail if any of the applicable cost center trees is not mapped to a field in this application. To view export process details see the activity log in Setup > System > Activity.
