  1. Security Setup option to change order regardless Pick Ticket Printed status

    On the Global and User security, options 3 - 7 on screen 3, nicely control the user ability to add,and delete order and credit memo in COP but for change the control is only if Pick Ticket was printed. If you want to have the option NOT to allow a change, regardless the Pick Ticket status, it is impossible. For companies that do not print Pick ticket immediately, want to allow order entry (for Edit List or Print Acknowledgements) but not to allow a change of the order, it is a problem.

  4. 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,…

  5. 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,…

  6. Create an Event to Print Duplicate Invoice

    We have the event to Print invoice. There is no event to Print Duplicate Invoice which is a different program and the recommended method when using Post Office. I think we should have the Event for Print Duplicate Invoice as well.

  7. Attribute screen - allow keyboard entry in date fields.

    Attribute screen - allow keyboard entry in date fields.

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

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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. 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…

  15. obsolete item

    We would like to be able to create bills of materials with out using obsolete items. It would be nice to have a pop up window when you enter an obsolete item that tells you it is an obsolete item and wont allow you to use that item. We may have machinery out in the field that has the item that is now obsolete that we might still sell to them but we would like not to have the option to even use that item in a current build when creating the bill of material. I understand the "Transition an…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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?

  19. Allow Vendor Account Inquiry in PO# order

    Our Vendor POs often have multiple line items delivered over two or three months. A display in PO number order would assist in checking the current status of that POs invoice/payment history.

  20. Allow print bill of material with only item number, first line description, quantity, unit. No flags

    We use a 3rd party report writer to create written copies of the bills of materials to be used in the operation manuals for our machinery. these are saved as PDF files and entered using Adobe. We only show the Item Number, first line description, quantity used, and unit type (ie. EA, FT, SET etc.). It would be helpful to have the capability to print this straight out of Elliott. I have attached a page of one of our manuals for an example.
