Re: Default AMS/SAP Printing and Emailing PDFs



Dear AMS users,

As you may be aware, Enterprise Applications & Solutions Integration (EASI) is transitioning SAP printing to a front-end solution that will make printing reports from AMS faster, easier and safer.

Starting July 20, your Output Device for printing AMS reports will default to “LOCL” on Windows. If you are a Mac SAP GUI user, please change your print default to “LOCM.” Using LOCL/LOCM, you can easily print reports to PDF and your local printer, as well as email reports directly from AMS.

This simplified approach can be used in all AMS/SAP modules. Please note, web-based applications, including Fiori Launchpad Reporting, Expense Reimbursement Direct Deposit and Employee Self-Service/Manager Self-Service, will continue to print as usual.

See below for the changes you will see on July 20, 2023:

If you have not already set your Output Device default to “LOCL” (Windows) / “LOCM” (Mac), you will see your current three-digit printer code.

On July 20, you will see “LOCL” as your Output Device. Mac users can change their default to “LOCM.”
