ADP Payroll Supervisors Time card Approval adpeet.adp.com
I'm not going to be going easy on ADP for this issue. (Enterprise eTIME)
Internet Explorer 6.5???? Are you freak'n kidding me? (Enterprise eTIME)
Are you having issues with ADP (Enterprise eTIME) ????
In fact, the technical support suggested that we keep our corporation on XP until ADP fixes the problem!!
Well ADP, Oracle has published the issue in Feb. 2013 and even have a fix for your db hook but still we are forced to have our payroll department use IE 8 on Windows XP.
Let me continue with my rant and my spanking of ADP for you and in your behalf.
And to think your site in that section doesn't even allow Chrome or Firefox to login. Unless I use a 3.5 version of Firefox it's just not going to work.
I have had supervisors rollback to Windows XP virtual machines running Internet Explorer 8.0 with Java 6.3x to approve team supervisor time cards.
It's only one section!
The Issue was corrected by Java (Oracle) and the fix was published back in Feb. 2013.
Your TECH SUPPORT approved this fix:
ADP: Requires special Java settings to allow supervisors access to timecard approval.
Java Version 6 Update 23
You are kidding right?
And please, when I read or hear the fix is to run something in compatibility mode I really think you need to find a new career path.
Even MS tried to suggest a fix which by the way for your specific Feb 2013 Java issue does not work. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2506617
Now, here is where I spank my company for not checking your services with IT before purchasing them.
Your "Setup Guide" only shows IE 6, 7 and 8.
I get it, you are are using Windows XP at the office. You have to be, because IE 8 doesn't run on Windows 7 and Windows 8.
So my Grumpy Old Tech 2.0 article is all about ADP your financial payroll processing company that does not update applications to work with Windows 7 computers.
When are you going to fix your website that your customers use?
If I could suggest a different payroll company I would.
But, instead of listening to people say they can not upgrade from Windows XP and IE 8 because of you I'm going to ask them to test their security with Homeland Security.
Matter of fact, this coming year ends the life of XP.
It's up to you ADP, get with the program and I don't mean that crap healthcare site.
Don't like my attitude?
I don't like the idea that I have department supervisors working with Windows XP on new laptops. They wait and wait for your technical support to fix things and all they say is "You have to use IE 8"
You are not a High Tech Safe and Security company.
You are a security risk in that you require people to use applications that have known exploits.
Not only that, if you have IE 8 I bet you have spyware or can get it very easy.
ADP Fix it!
This is my rant, screw yourself if you write me and ask me to remove this post. If you're not going to be IT Security savvy get your business off the internet.

Think this rant and article is without merit?
Tell me if you have seen the following error and I'll tell you how to fix it.
Not everyone sees this error and for that I believe ADP is not going to act on it.
It's for Enterprise Users and specific to Time card approval by supervisors.
At our corporate office I know of 5 supervisors that have to use Windows XP SP3 with IE 8 JavaScrip 6.23 to get this Applet to run.
SunJava Oracle.com has this applet as a issue that has been corrected as of Feb. 2013 but requires the website db script to be modified to work with newer browsers.
ADP tech support Senior II saw the same thing and told us to use IE 8.
That was 3 months ago and we today are still seeing the same issue ADP.
So get with the program or get out of the business.
