  1. Material Production History Report - Totals

    When printing the Material Production History Report it does
    not provide totals for Order QTY or Rptd. Qty. It would be nice
    to have this feature.

  2. Vendor AP Account

    Similar to field 25 on the Customer File maintenance, it will be nice to have an A/P General ledger account. Then in field 15 on the transaction file, default to the Vendor A/P Account. Similarly, field 11 on the PO Invoice screen will default to the Vendor A/P account as well.

  5. Prevent Excel Drop Leading Zeroes in CSV Item Number Field

    When I export Elliott's Item Number to CSV through either Export Processor, or Elliott provided reports with CSV export option, the leading zeroes will be dropped when I open it with Excel. For example, item number 0100, when open the CSV in Excel, it is displayed as 100. I found the following article that can address this issue:

    https://superuser.com/questions/330291/how-to-stop-excel-from-auto-formatting-and-making-it-work-like-a-number-crunchin

    This article suggest instead of exporting item number 0100 in the CSV as "0100", we can add a equal sign "=" in the front to make it ="0100", this way, Excel will preserve the leading zero.

  6. Password Control on Update Parent Cost in Inventory? in Print Costed Bill Of Material

    When running Print Costed Bill of Material we might want the abiliity to allow only specific users to answer Y in Field 15, Update Parent Cost in Inventory? I thing that Global and User Password control is necessary here.

  7. Running Order Edit List based on Qty Ordered

    When running List, Edit List from COP Order Entry there is no option to run the report based on "qty ordered" instead of "qty to ship". Companies that default the "qty to ship" to zero get misleading information, on the total value of the opened orders.

    The order total area for the order detail and the summary total page have been changed to show the Order Amount, the Cost, Margin and Margin Percentage (if the user is allowed to see cost information) based on the quantity ordered for “O” and “I” type orders. See http://support.elliott.com/knowledgebase/articles/1834066-feature-order-edit-list-with-order-totals-includ for more information on the changes made to the report.

  8. Add Ability to Defer Purging COP Line Item Audit Trial Information

    Add the ability to enter a fuzzy date to the Purge Line Item Audit file tool. For Example, the ability to specify a number of days back from the current date to act as the cutoff date.

    This way, we can choose to always keep a specified amount of days line item audit data and it will be purged automatically in deferred processing.

  9. Pick ticket to print in bin sequence from work order entry screen

    It would be helpful after a work order is created and it asks if you want to print the pick ticket, that there would either be a global setup or option to print out in bin sequence. This would eliminate having to go to another screen in order to do so.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. Utility to Reset AP Vendor Amount Paid Year to Day (YTD) and Last Year

    Currently, there are utility to reset AR customer sales PTD, YTD and Last Year. But there's no utility to reset AP vendor amount paid year to day (YTD) and last year. We need vendor amount paid year to day or last year to print 1099. But sometime we have difficulty with closing a year at exactly the year end. We may still wait for invoices that's not received yet past the new year day. Thus can't clear the vendor's YTD and Last Year accumulator at the right time. This utility will give us the flexibility. For this utility, the YTD…
