  2. Change the logging of Mass Email to be by user and date

    Right now, if multiple users are sending mass emails at the same time Elliott will try to record everything in the log file. Since there are multiple users sending emails at the same time, the log file will get locked and a new one will be create. This happens over and over resulting in many, many log files.

    If the log files were recorded by USER and Date there would be no concurrency issue. Each user would write to their own log file and there would be far less log files created in a day.

  3. Put An Order On Hold Or Choose Third Party Billing From Sales Desk Screen

    Currently we don't have the ability to place an order on hold or to select third party billing when writing up a new order through sales desk. We have to go back into an order entry screen to put in the H for hold, T for third party billing, etc. Having the ability to do that when closing out an order in sales desk would be very helpful.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Access the Payment Window from the Order or Invoice Inquiry Screen

    Is this new feature for viewing only or can you enter payment information as well once an order is Billed, Invoiced, or Posted?

    If for more than viewing, do you have an article on this? I couldn't find anything more than it being listed on updates in 8.2

  8. View Invoice from Invoice History Inquiry by Customer/Item

    When going into Invoice History Inquiry, if you look up invoices by item# you can select/highlight a specific invoice and see the details of.

    However, this option is not available when searching invoices by customer and then item#. You have to then go back or open another window to see the details of that specific invoice.

  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. Adding Additional Columns and CSV Export for Commission Report

    1. Currently Commission Due Report provides basic information. Salesman time to time request and verify extra information. It will be very helpful to add Commission%, Share%, Full-Sales_Amount, specially there are multiple salesmen share one order.
    2. CSV Export feature will help to review and audit report.

  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. 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…

  13. 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...

  14. Transition an Item to Obsolete

    Currently, if an item is marked as obsolete, then we don't allow our users to sell it. This is done through Global Setup -> Cop-Func -> Order Line Item Screen, flag "7. Allow Entry For Obsolete Item in COP Line Item".

    However, in many situations, we may still have inventory left and we still want to sell them before totally obsolete it. Therefore, we need to keep the item as "A" (Active). But in the mean time, we need to prevent the purchasing of this item. We can't warn the user if the item stay as "A" (Active).

    Can we…

  15. Prevent Invalid Serial Number from Receiving to Elliott

    Sometime either the manufacture bar code or our bar code scanner is not perfect. As a result, we received invalid serial number to our inventory which we do not know until when we try to sell it.

    I like to propose a logic to filtering out these invalid serial number at time of PO receiving. For example, we can define the valid range of serial number as 0 - 9, A-B, or maybe some special symbol like "-" or ".". If the serial number contains characters other that these symbol, we will reject it at time of PO receiving. This…

  17. It would be nice to be able to page up/down when viewing attributes.

    Currently, when you view an attribute, you have to close it, arrow up/down to highlight the next one, open it, view, close, arrow up/down to next one, open it, etc. You can page up/down when you have notes open, so I would assume the attributes could work the same way.

  18. Order Header Ship Date Change Event

    Unless I cannot find it, there is no event that fires when the ship date for an order is changed. This would be very beneficial as this important piece of historical information is not recorded anywhere.

    As we had discussed the reason for this request with Aaron is because currently, when user change the order ship date, even thought that cause the mass update of line item promise date, but system does not update line item audit trail. We now had made a change to create line item audit trail record to address this issue. The update will be available in the next Elliott release.

  19. Support GTIN base on two different UPC codes

    GTIN (Global Trading Item Number) is a 14 digits UPC code with the package code as the first digits + 13 digits UPC code. For 12 digits UPC code, you will just add a leading zero to make it 13 digits. The package code will represent the number of inner box in a case. Typically, the inner box will be encoded with a UPC code (12 or 13 digits), and the outside box will be encoded with a GTIN (14 digits) base on the same UPC code.

    But we have situation that our vendor does not implement GTIN correctly. Instead…

  20. Add Salesman Column to Open Order by Customer CSV Export

    Currently, there's no way to export open order by salesman report to CSV. On the other hand, there's the option to export op[en order by customer report to CSV. The issue is the Salesman column is not in this CSV export. I suggest to add the salesman column to Open Order by Customer CSV export, before the PO# column. This way, the same CSV export can be used as by Customer, by Item, By Salesman depend on how you choose to sort in the spreadsheet.
