  1. Allow Page Up when search a GL Account By Name

    When using F8 to search GL Account by account name and entering the starting letters or letter Elliott doesn't allow Pg Up before the starting letter. This is not the behavior when doing Customer, Vendor or Item by name or description. This gives the user less functionality, User should be able to Page Up regardless the characters entered in the search field.

  2. Log All Activity Performed in Re-Apply Cr/Dr Memos Function

    Currently, there is no posting, events, logging or audit trail related to the Re-Apply Cr/Dr Memos functionality. This makes it difficult to figure out why something was reapplied or changed and who did it. In a small environment one user could be in charge of all re-applies, but in a larger organization this isn't feasible to get all of the work done.

    I suggest a log file be created that logs all changes made through the function with the date/time, user and workstation information.

  3. Mass Update Customer Csv Import

    The Customer/eContact Import Utility is designed more toward adding customers or eContacts. It does not work as well as a generic tool to update existing customer fields. Therefore, it is suggested that we should have a generic utility to mass update customer by CSV to support the following fields: Salesman, Collector, Territory, Location, Customer Type, Ship via, Terms, Ship to Days, Freight Pay Code, UPS Zone, Credit Rating, Credit Limit, Comment 1 & 2, Form#, Customer Note 1 - 5, User Amount, User Date.

  5. Create number of Shipping Labels based on Customer Item pack size

    When creating shipping labels, the number of labels created should first look at the customer item pack size and then default to the item file pack size. If there's a shipment for 20, with the item pack size being 4 and customer pack size being 10, we want 2 labels to print, not 5.

  6. Customer Item Lookup

    Customer Order entry is already supported with Customer Item Lookups by Customer Item and Customer Description. This is the only place where a customer item can be entered to determine what the Elliott Item number is.

    It would be beneficial to have this same ability in sales desk as well as in CUSTOMER ITEM FILE MAINTENANCE --> CHANGE.
    An INQUIRY Feature in CUSTOMER ITEM FILE MAINTENANCE would also be helpful so that users without permissions for change still have access to the lookup.

  9. Post Labor and Overhead Transactions as they are captured not only when quantities are reported.

    Labor and overhead are only being posted from BoM when a quantity is reported. For example if a worker is working on building 1 machine for 5 days, every day he reports 0 completed until the 5th day when he completes it. The first 4 days, nothing comes to the GL for Labor or Overhead. On the 5th day when the 1 is completed, ALL the labor and overhead goes to that one day. The amount of labor should show up every day rather than all in 1 time.

  10. GL Interface Out of Balance Error Fix

    When "POSTING INVOICES TO AR" AR from COP while at the same time running GL "INTERFACE FROM AR" it can result in an out of Balance Error in the Interface. BTRIEVE should prevent this from happening. If not BTRIEVE we need another way to prevent these processes from being run simultaneously.

  11. WOP - keep qty allocated for shortage items

    When a "Pick Kit" operation is not fully satisfied (for example, qty needed for a component is 12 and qty of 9 was reported as pulled), Elliott assumes that only 9 are needed and release the remaining 3 allocated. I understand that there is a situation that there is no need for the remaining 3 and in this case the allocation should be released. My experience shows that in all the scenarios that I have been involved with, the allocation must remain. I am using a "shortage report" that Roger developed but the ATP is wrong and the purchasing decisions…

  12. Recover from "Unable to Read your Users record (9/068)" Error Automatically

    If a user's computer crashes or their session ends unexpectedly while they are in Elliott they could receive the error "Unable to Read your Users record (9/068). You cannot use Elliott until this is resolved." when they try to log back in.

    As far as we know, there is no way for the user to help their situation. If no one with elevated privileges is available to use the PSQL Monitor to delete their invalid user sessions, the user cannot work.

    There should be an automatic way for the system to recover from these errors or some process the user…

  13. Label printing option in put-away screen

    Is it possible to have a prompt or an option to print labels during the put-away process? Maybe a prompt that would say "Do you need a shelf label for this item" and have the default to N, but if "Y", print the label immediately; or an F2 function to print the label.

  14. Allow to Edit Certain Customer Information from Order Entry

    One of the common issue is when sales rep is taking order from customer, they like to have to opportunity to update customer address and phone. We don't want to give salesman the right to change customer which then they can change other sensitive fields like Salesman ID for the customer. So it will be ideal if we can give salesman the right to change customer in a limited way, like changing the address, contact, phone number...etc.

    Currently, there is such a feature in Sales Desk, where after user enter the customer number, they can press F5=Option and choose to…

  16. Purge Posted Orders by Customer and Date Range

    Purge Customer Order by Customer and Date Range...
    Currently sales orders can only be purged by a THRU date (ending date). By changing the date to a range and adding a customer range we could delete orders specific to a customer and to a specific time while retaining the orders for other customers. This would come in handy when you have many EDI orders for a specific customer.

  17. Move Landed Cost Calculation report to show in PO

    Although the Landed cost calculation report is run from the PO module, it is currently grouped with the IM reports in the Spool manager. I suggest that the report should be renamed to that it is listed with the PO reports.

  18. Purchase Unit of Measure by Item Vendor File Maintenance:

    Purchase Unit of Measure by Item Vendor File Maintenance:
    Currently we can purchase an item with a different unit of measure from the stocking U of M by utilizing field 12 fo the item Master File.

    However all possible vendors for the same item do not sell in the same U of M. (ie Stock by Yard, Purchase by Yard or Meter).

    Since we already have a ITEM VENDOR FILE MAINTENACE could we add a Vendor U of M and a Purch to Stock Ratio filed that would be referenced when creating and receiving a PO the same way it…

  19. Add an Event that Fires when a Purchase Order is entered in Purchase Order Processing

    There is currently no event that fires when a purchase order is entered in Purchase Order Processing. This would be a very useful to:

    - alert users when PO's are entered for certain vendors via email
    - provide message boxes with special instructions for certain vendors or PO types
    - warn users if something needs to be done on a vendor account before a PO is entered
    - alert users when certain PO locations are entered

    etc...
