  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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...
