  1. Check If Valid PO Number Entered for EDI Trading Partner

    If a customer has an EDI Partner profile setup, general speaking, they would (1) need a valid PO number; (2) need the PO number be less than 22 digits because that's standard EDI limit.

    For (1), we should setup a flag in EDI trading partner profile to indicate whether PO number is required or not. For (2), it is safe to assume that if the EDI trading partner profile is setup for the customer, then the PO length should not exceed 22 digits. Currently, Elliott allow 25 digits PO number.

    The implementation should apply to the following areas: (a) COP…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

    When printing the Material Production History Report it does

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    CSV Support has been added to the single and multi-bin versions of the Update Edit List and the Variance Report By Item/Warehouse. The CSV file does not include serial number information but includes any comments if there is a serial number mismatch that will prevent a tag from posting. This change will be available in the next Elliott release. See http://support.elliott.com/knowledgebase/articles/1865605-feature-added-csv-support-to-the-physical-count for more information.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
