  1. Send a warning before saving a change of an econtact's email

    We had the following situation on a customer site:
    1. User intended to add a "faked" email address. This adress is added to customers that do not want to receive an email for the invoice and do not need a printed invoice. (a hard copy of the invoice is delivered and when running duplicate invoice (after posting), it is not necessary to get a hard copy or an email). This is a valid process.
    2. After adding the faked email econtct, user changed the email address to one of the real emails of this customers. This was a mistake.

  2. Allow Print One Invoice to Print Duplicate Invoices for Order Not Posted

    There is no elegant way to print a duplicate invoice for an order that is not yet posted. Printers sometimes have issues or some other printing errors can occur while printing an invoice. Bad toner, bad printout, etc... If the invoice does not physically print there are only 2 options to get the invoice printed that I know of.

    1. Print a duplicate invoice using Print Invoices. This can be done, but will also lock all users from printing invoices if the user does not complete the task quickly enough. This options is not good for users not skilled in…

  3. Add Wish List Access to Order Entry

    In the Order Entry Item Search menu, add the ability to access and maintain the customer's Wish List. You can then select an item in their Wish List and it enters it for you to begin entering the line item.

  4. Allow Deferred Processing for Post Office

    Scheduling Post Office activities will be an excellent tool. For example, running the Printing Order Acknowledgement with Post Office every hour automatically using the Deferred Processing. Now it has to be done manually. When having intensive order entry operation, printing / emailing an immediate order acknowledgement slows down the operation and this has to be done in batch mode.

  5. Item costs in multi warehouse where costs are different

    Do you have an idea on how to handle this or do we just use different item numbers?

  6. COP Pick Ticket - Default Line Item Promise date Cut Off Option

    When Printing a Pick Ticker Field 4 is defaulted to the current date. We all understand the reason for that. Some companies would like to default to 12/31/30 (similar to the Billing option), so ALL Pick tickets are printed. I suggest to add an option similar to the Global Setup, COP Function Order Billing Field 12 to the Global Setup, Pick/Pack Ticket/Ship Label screen.

  7. Available to Promise Period Summary - Menu choice for inventory class

    When using ATP period summary report
    It would be nice to see a menu option where you can select
    inventory class

    This ways clients could focus on there A, B and C inventory classes to see if they are hitting their inventory turns on a specific class.

  8. Shipment Verification display option of items not scanned

    With orders of over 120 line items it is tedious to check for items not scanned. An option for items not completely filled that includes the bin location and UPC code would be handy.

  9. Option to Supress Total Weight When Print Packing List

    Currently, when print packing list, the total weight is always printed at the the bottom of the packing list like:
    TTL WEIGHT - 999,999.999
    It has been suggested by some users that the total weight in Elliott is not necessary correct due to various reasons. Therefore, it would be desirable if the packing list does not print total weight. We could potentially introduce a global setup flag for this purpose. If we should make this change, this flag should apply to both regular packing list, as well as packing list by box.

    Please let us know how do you feel…

  10. Support Phantom Locking with Item and Customer Change

    Currently, most of the locking conflicts in Elliott come from user going to item or customer file maintenance change mode. User keep the change record on the screen without releasing it. This can happen when the user is interrupt with a phone call, or has to take a break. This however, causing extensive locking for other users who need to update the item or customer record and wait have to wait in the locking loop until this record is released.

    It is suggested that we should consider implementing phantom locking on Item and Customer in the change mode to avoid…

  11. Support Check Reference in AP Manual Check Processing or AP Account Inquiry

    Like the voucher reference, it would be nice if we can support check reference for check record in AP Open Item file. Users can store wire transaction ID or other pertinent information in check reference. Giving the fact that more an more payments are done electronically, it is important to give user a way to record the reference information since there's really no check number in that case.

    Suggest to allow users to indicate the check reference in manual check processing. The check reference information should show on A/P Account (& Summary) Inquiry. Give user the ability to edit the…

  13. Allow 2 operators to log into the same WoP job

    Many of our clients want the ability to allow multiple workers to scan into the same Work Order. We know there's a workaround by having the 2nd worker log in to the work center instead of the job, but for many of the floor workers this complicates things. Ideally the Floor Manager tells the 2nd worker to log into the work center, but in many cases things are busy and hectic, and Worker B logs in to a job worker A is in. Now A is kicked out and his time is no longer being tracked (unknown to him), and…

    We are not aware of the 2nd operator to replace the first operator scenario. We will do a test to check if that’s the case. In the mean time, we think it is a good idea to offer the 2nd operator the option to login the work center automatically when the 1st operator is already on that job. This way, the 2nd operator time become the share labor. When the 2nd operator leave that job by working on other job, the share labor time automatically stop. Is this something you image how it should work?

  14. Email Locking Event to Offending User

    Currently, Elliott allow subscribing a management event by going to Global Setup, Press Detail Event button, and F5 key to insert the LCKEVENT - Record Lock Triggered Per Min. When a record lock over one minute is taking place, this event email can be sent to a specific person, like the admin of the organization.

    It is suggested that this email should be sent to the offending user (the user who create the locking condition in the first place). The issue we had was that we know the offending user Windows login, but we do not know the Elliott corresponding…

  15. Purge Utility for SYACTLOG (System Activity Log) Table

    SYACTLOG (System Activity Log) table contains the following kind of data:
    * Elliott Users Login
    * Web (Web Services) eContact Login
    * Email Activities
    * Credit Card Charges
    * Print Activities
    * Other activities
    This table tend to become very big and make it difficult to retrieve data. Currently, system does not have a purge utility for this table. It is suggested that we should provide a utility to allow users to purge this table for certain type of activities with cut-off date.

  16. Allow Changes to a Printed Plus Work Order

    Currently, once a plus production work order is printed no other changes can be made to the work order. If production has not started, users could be able to add material to the work order or change operation information since no material has been issued and no labor has been reported. Also, if the production work order has been started but production has not been reported for the parent item, additional operations could be added to the work order or work order operations that have not been started could be changed.

  17. List Screen Numbers and Field numbers when providing Upgrades

    It is certainly beneficial that when providing upgrade instructions you already list the Global Default Security settings that need to be addressed.

    However locating the appropriate Screen and Field numbers for these settings can be tedious. It would help if we were provided with the Screen and field numbers for each of the settings within the setup instructions instead of just making them a bullet (o).

  20. Shipping Verification and Non-Stock items

    Shipping Verification will force non-stocked items into Box 1, regardless of what box is actually being filled.

    At Mercer Tool, there are many items purchased from an outside source, typically for one-off shipments - that would make no sense to set up as Stocked. Often these are custom made, and are shipped complete as soon as they arrive.

    However, since they are not set up as stocked, shipping verification doesn't work as planned, since all these items will go into Box 1 automatically. Often these items are heavy, and can not all be forced into the same box.

    Please consider…
