  1. 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.

  2. Import To Remove An Attribute

    Currently we have the ability to do a mass add or update via the Attribute Import, but I'm not aware of a way to mass remove an attribute from customers, items, etc. through Elliott. Is it possible to add that feature to the Attribute Import module?

  3. Item file import feature for ATP Period Summary

    Would it be possible to add the feature of an Item file import
    like what is available in Gross Requirements? This would allow
    a focused view of part numbers.

  4. 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…

  5. Remembering Default for Aging Report

    We would like to know if it would be possible to "remember" the parameter for the Aging Report field 1 to either D or S, instead of having to change the parameter every time. We always run the aging report by detail and the default always comes up as an S for Summary.

  6. Inventory Transaction Inquiry Drill Down to Material WO should show added/changed transactions

    Currently if an item is added to a material work order at the time of receipt thru production transaction processing the drill down from stock-status-inquiry does not display the item that was added. Instead it seems to display the work order as it was originally created. Inventory transaction audit report displays the correct transaction.

  7. Default values for PO Import - Ship Via, FOB, Print Price

    I think the three fields Ship Via, FOB and Print Price should be added as defaults AND added to the layout for the import file.

  8. Customer delivery performance Report

    Would it be possible to include an option/selection when running
    the customer delivery performance report to allow the user to
    select not only by customer number but also to what ship to location?
    When dealing with large OEM customers it is common to have
    other ship to locations. When running this report all data's are included in the output. You could be delivering 100% to 2 ship to locations but say a 3rd only at 90% on time delivery.

  10. In Inquiry Screens,

    In inquiry screens, allow PageUP/PageDown keys to loop beginning/end of return set.

    For example, when doing an Order Inquiry, when you are on the _first_ page, pushing the Page UP key (which doesn’t do anything at the moment, on the first page), would actually wrap you around to what would in fact be the _last_ page. Make PageUP/PageDOWN work circularly through the return set, wrapping from the top to the bottom and the bottom to the top, as opposed to linearly, stopping at the bottom and stopping at the top like it does now.

  11. Change Owner of Tracking Note Instead of Deleting It

    This idea is to have the Invoice Post change the owner of the tracking note instead of deleting it or leaving it as a tracking note in the Order Header. The note would still be created for the invoice with the owner STARSHIP so it retains the tracking number lookup, but the note attached to the Order Header would change the owner to the user posting invoices if the invoice is partially posted (backorders exist). This would retain the tracking number, but the order would need a new tracking note to meet the Tracking Number Required criteria.

    The Post Invoice…

  12. Customer Favorite Items

    Elliott currently supports Wish List items, which are items that customers would like to buy but cannot for some reason at the moment the item is added to the wish list. Its a great reminder system to build sales.

    The support for favorite items should also be added. Favorite items are basically a list of items the dealers likes to order. The process to add an item to a dealer's favorite list could be handled in sales desk similar to the wish list items. Any active item could be added to a favorite list.

    Users should be able to view…

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

    When printing a picking list by bill it does not show non-inventory tracked items. I need the non-inventory items that are a part of produc t structures to show up on picking list by bills.

  14. Add inventory location while in transaction processing.

    I would like to add inventory to a location in the inventory transaction screen. The warning is fine, but then have an "Ok to add Y/N" question. It's very time consuming when we add a new location or new product structure to leave the screen and put the item in the location control file.

  15. Can I create more internal macros?

    Is there a way to create more internal macros after running out of hot keys available? I could use about 50 different macros for inventory transactions, however I ran out of available hot keys after 16.

  16. Item Generic Search to Show Item Quantity Greater than Zero Only

    It is suggested that in item generic search, we have the option to show item quantity per global setup. It is suggested that, we need to allow user to press a flag that only show those item quantity is greater than zero so customer service rep can focus on those item that we have on-stock.

    Currently, the bottom line of the item generic search can as following:
    Up, Dn, PgDn, PgUp, F4=Detail
    Up, Dn, PgDn, PgUp, RETURN To Select
    Up, Dn, PgDn, PgUp, F4=Detail F5=Wish List
    Up, Dn, PgDn, PgUp, F1/F2=Next/Prev Loc F3=Setup F4=Detail
    Up Dn PgUp/Dn F1/F2=Next/Prev Loc F3=Setup…

  18. Balance Sheet Net Income from Last Year - Fix Temporary Year End Out of Balance Issue

    For users who do temporary year end, from the time of temporary year end to the final year end, the General Ledger Balance Sheet will be out of balance.

    This is because the Balance Sheet Net Income (BSNI) only calculate the number from this year once you do a temporary year end. In the mean time, the detail transaction for last year is still there because final year end is not done.

    It has been suggested, that we can introduce another financial statement layout code:
    LYNI = Last Year Net Income
    This is similar to BSNI. But LYNI only reflect…

  19. Cash receipt Import - Allow over payment and Allowence

    When importing a detailed cash receipt, Elliott doesn't allow over payment to an invoice. I suggest to allow over payment as this might happen. In addition, cash receipt csv might have an allowance line (a deduction). it will be nice to allow the allowance to go through as a negative cash receipt as well.

  20. Display Literal "Press Down Arrow Key to Change Material" in Material Work Order Change Mode

    In Material Work Order change mode, if user with to change the material, they must place the cursor at Qty field and press down arrow. If user press the Enter key instead, then the Material window does not show up. This often cause confusion.

    It is suggested that we display the "Press Down Arrow Key to Change Material" literal at the Qty field if the condition allow (i.e. WO is not allocated, printed or completed.)
