  1. Always Use Last Cost as PO's Default FOB Cost

    Currently, Elliott decide PO's Default FOB Cost base on the following priority sequence:
    (1) If Vendor Item record exist and set to use "Price Table", then Price Table will be used;
    (2) If PO Setup "20. Default FOB Std Cost On PO's" is set to "Y", then default to Item Std Cost;
    (3) If Vendor Item Record Exist, use the Vendor Item Last Purchase Cost;
    (4) Use Item's Last Cost.

    It had been suggested that we should modify the flag "20. Default FOB Std Cost On PO's ?" to "20. Default PO FOB Cost Method ?" and the possible value…

  2. On-Line Credit card Processing Allow Editing Receipt's Comment

    Currently Elliott defaults on the Credit card receipt "THANK YOU" and on the 2nd line "PLEASE COME AGAIN". User might want to change.
    I suggest to add a field with 3 lines in the Global Setup of the CC Online setup for the required greeting. It can be defaulted to the current greeting but user can change. Also allow to leave blank if user wants to use Laser design.

  3. Extract an indented Bill of Material from Elliott to CSV

    I see that there's a CSV option for single level Bill of Material but not for indented. Is there a way to extract an indented Bill of Material from Elliott to CSV? The output layout will similar as single level Bill of Material but need adding extra columns that includes "Report Line Sequence number" to keep whole report can be restored to original sequence after sorting from different way on spreadsheet. Plus, fields of "Stock Flag", "Control Flag" and "P/M Code.

  4. Removing Line Item With Restricted Attribute On It

    We have never been able to remove a line item off of an order in Order Entry if there's a restricted attribute on that item. For instance, let's say there is an existing order and a restricted attribute has been added to a certain product line, etc. that prevents that customer from ordering it. The order will get thrown on hold at the time of a picking ticket. If we go into that order in Order Entry to delete it, it won't allow us into that line item. The only way to remove it is to take the restricted attribute…

  5. Show Item on stock Status if Qty On-Order/Allocated > 0 and Qty On-Hand = 0

    In Stock status Report, if user answer Y to field 8 (Exclude Zero Qty Items), and Qty On-Hand is zero, Item is not on the report, even if Qty Allocated or Qty On-Order are > 0. I suggest to allow user to see these items by adding a prompt on the Stock status screen or adding a Global setup field.

  6. AP Transaction Processing - Add distribution level reference

    AP Transaction Processing - Add distribution level reference

    Currently, AP Transaction Processing allows the entry of a _Voucher Reference_, which ultimately carries through to APDSTHST.APDSTHST_VOUCHER_REF for every distribution made against that voucher.

    Propose adding a distribution level reference, allowing a unique reference to be added for each distribution made against a voucher.

    Add APTRXDST.NEW_AP_DIST_REF
    Add APDSTHST.APDSTHST_DIST_REF
    Add both references to resultant APDISFIL record.

    Expand AP Invoice Import Utility Detail Record Layout to include DIST_REF.

    This is particularly useful when processing vouchers for credit card statements - which often contain a variety of charges which may require/benefit from a unique reference…

  8. A Note Type to Put Literal Into The Body of Note As Part of the Note Body Text

    Currently, user is allowed to defined a note type with literal. In the example provided below, we have a note type "S" with literal. When we create a note with note type S, the literal is really not part of the note even though the literal is displayed. What I really like is the ability to define a note type with literal with the option "28. Put Literal in Note Body" The default is "N". But if user set this flag as "Y", then when a note is created, the literal is part of the note body. The main benefit…

  10. Import Shipment Tracking Number to Elliott through CSV File

    It has been suggested that Elliott should support importing of shipment tracking number for sales order through CSV File. The CSV file should contain the following fields:
    Order# String Sample 123456 (pad leading zero if numeric)
    Package# String Sample 1
    Tracking# String Sample 1Z92752E0300860395
    Weight String Sample 1.00
    Freight Amount String Sample 15.23
    Ship Via String Sample UPS Ground
    Ship Date/Time String Sample 8/23/2017 1:00:00PM
    Reference String Sample 123456789

    Not all fields need to be provided. Only the Order# and Tracking# is necessary. If the Package# is not provided, then it is assume 1. If the weight is not provided,…

  11. Save Customer or Item Record When Change Page

    The new phantom locking feature does not lock customer or item in customer or item file change mode. Since both customer and item has 3 pages of data, sometime a user may change a field on the first screen, and go to second screen to change something further, the record do not get saved until past the 3rd page. If there's a conflict, many changes to the record may be lost. It would be nice if the system can save the record as user change from page to page, without waiting to the end. This way, if there's a conflict,…

    Currently, user must choose date from calendar/date picker control. Would like to see ability to simply enter date via keyboard input.

  13. Cancelled PO Line Printing

    When printing a PO with cancelled line or lines, the presentation is misleading and might cause an error on the vendor side. As we know Elliott print Cncl literal on cancelled lines but shows the quantity and the line total amount. The lines are not added to the total but I don't think its is enough, After cancelling the line, user cant even access field 19 and enter a comment. I think that the qty should be presented as 0 and the total line as zero. This is an old Macola behavior that we lived with and maybe it is…

  14. Support Location, Product Category and Customer Type to Determine Sales and COGS

    Currently, Elliott allow defining sales and COGS account by location and product category. We are facing with the following complaints:
    (1) User only want to define sales account by product category, not by location. Because of the fix structure, user will have to define all combination of locations and product categories which is a burden.
    (2) Sometime user may miss a combination, as a result the sales and COGS go to the default account causing reconciliation problem. System should make it easier to find potential missing setup problem.
    (3) Some users want to define sales and COGS account by customer…

  15. Defer processing - Using it with system period control and system Date

    Being able to select Starting and Ending date in deferred processing would be a nice tool to have as it is
    Pre-defined. The accounting department runs the same reports every month and only the starting and ending
    Dates change. Does or can this feature be added easily? Also the option of running a report using the system date in
    Deferred processing would be helpful.

  16. Allow to use wild card file name and multiple path when attaching documents in Elliott Post Office

    Elliott allows to use a variable on the Attach... field when sending a Post Office email. For example the variable InvNo will automatically attach a document with the invoice number as the file name. This is NICE. I suggest to allow multiple path in case the documents are in different folders and to allow wildcard. So instead of $InvNo$.pdf I can define $InvNo$*.*. For example if the invoice number is 123456, Elliott will attach 123456.DOC, 123456A.PDF etc. In addition user should be able to define different path so it can be something like M:\ELLIOTT8\DOC1\$InvNo$*.*, M:\ELLIOTT8\DOC2\$InvNo$*.*,M:\ELLIOTT8\DOC3\$InvNo$*.*. In this example, Elliott will…

  17. Show non-inventory items on picking list by bills

  18. wild card search

    It would be very beneficial to have a wild card search. Example: When searching in inventory we only have the benefits of searching the beginning of the description, part number, substitute item,etc. It would be very helpful to put a word in and have it search all of the descriptions and item numbers and show all items that have the same string of characters wherever they happen to be.

  19. Total for number of orders by item,Product category,customer, ship-to on summary, brief and detail COP reports

    When running the COP open orders report it would be nice in the sub total area to know how many orders by item,Product category,customer, ship-to on summary, brief and detail COP reports.
    Currently QTY, B/O Qty, Value are all being totaled except the number of orders. It appears there would be space to allow for this in the standard reports.

  20. Looking for the ability to change promise date on PO after Print and have Delivery Performance Report acknowledge the updated date

    We constantly need to change internal priorities for deliveries after the PO has been issued to the vendor. We change the promise date to reflect this. Unfortunately the Delivery Performance Report isn't able to account for this. It still reads the original date. The vendor shouldn't be held accountable for our internal change of priority. It makes this report unusable for us. Can there be an option for the delivery report to read the adjusted promise date and not the original?
