  1. Add a flag in the Global setup to allow (or not allow) a Y in the "Zero Quantity On Hand For Missing Tag Items? when postin Physical Count

    This is a dangerous field and even if only authorized users can run the posting physical count a mistake can be made. A simple flag on the Global setup can prevent a situation where user change the N to Y. I am aware that there are warning, but from an experience with users, these warning are not preventing these mistakes where items value are zero because user changed the N to Y.

  2. Allow Vendor Account Inquiry in PO# order

    Our Vendor POs often have multiple line items delivered over two or three months. A display in PO number order would assist in checking the current status of that POs invoice/payment history.

  3. Allow print bill of material with only item number, first line description, quantity, unit. No flags

    We use a 3rd party report writer to create written copies of the bills of materials to be used in the operation manuals for our machinery. these are saved as PDF files and entered using Adobe. We only show the Item Number, first line description, quantity used, and unit type (ie. EA, FT, SET etc.). It would be helpful to have the capability to print this straight out of Elliott. I have attached a page of one of our manuals for an example.

  4. Change the GL Reference for PO Receiving.

    Use the PO#-Rel-Line no,-Item number as the reference instead of the current structure that shows the meaningless PO Doc #.

  5. Allow to add a Ship To when adding a customer in Sales Desk

    Sales Desk, F5 Options, Add new Customer, doesn't allow to add a Ship To and assumes Ship To is the same as Bill To. I suggest to allow to add a Ship To.

  6. Add Support for POCOMFIL to Export Processor

    When entering a purchase order and adding F2 comments on the line item screen, the comments are stored in the POCOMFIL table. Currently the Export Processor does not support exporting the information from this file.

    We propose adding support for this file.

  8. Available to Promise inquiry screen

    Is it possible to make a selection (source) that a user could show either the planning suggestions LP- or LP+ instead of both on the ATP inquiry screen?

  9. Allow to reapply a check to the an invoice that was applied to before

    If user made a mistake and wants to apply more money from a check to an invoice that already applied to before Elliott doesn't allow it. The only way to do it is to use the AR Open Item Maintenance with a risk of a user mistake that can change the customer's balance. I suggest to change the Reapply in AR and allow application of a check that was previously applied to an invoice or debit memo.

  11. eContact on location

    When you need to email the Pick Ticket to a remote warehouse (might be a 3rd party), it will be nice to use the Post Office.
    1. Add the Pick Ticket as possible Post Office Document.
    2. Allow to assign the Pick Ticket on the eContact of the location. Elliott allows to add an eContact to a location in the Location file maintenance.
    3. In order entry add the eContact of the location to the order.
    4. When printing Pick Ticket, allow Post Office (now only PDF is allowed).
    Cybermac plans to create a modification that will do the above…

  12. Resolve Cost Adjustment Issues Across Multiple Asset Accounts

    Resolve Cost Adjustment Issues Across Multiple Asset Accounts

    Currently, if you post a Cost Adjustment to an item that has QOH in multiple locations, with a different assigned GL Asset Account per location (via material cost type/location account control), the system defaults to writing the _entire_ adjustment (qty summed across all locations) to the asset account indicated by the transaction location. If posted, this creates immediate discrepancy between effected GL Asset Account balances and the Stock Status by GL Report. Would like to see the system pre-fill distributions to accommodate this scenario, allowing user to choose final distribution account(s) to…

  13. Add Job Number to IM/AR/AP distribution files

    Add Job Number, etc. to IM/AR/AP/etc. distribution files (similar to BMDISFIL)

    The new BMDISFIL is a tremendous source of information, containing far more relevant fields from the originating transaction than the other distribution files. Would like to see the other subledger files expanded to include relevant data from the originating transaction, similar to the BMDISFIL, including but not limited to the job number.

  14. Add Product Category and Item Material Type to Item Audit Trail

    The Item Product Category and Item Material Cost type are very important and as we know the values effect the GL on the revenues, COGS and Inventory Asset accounts. I suggest to add these fields to the audit trail. An example is a change on the Material type that changes the Stock status by GL account file without changing the GL.

  15. Direct Ship Orders

    Our business model is 90% direct ship orders. Right now there is no correlation between the Sales Order and the Purchase Order number which is causing us lots of issues due to the volume of orders we take. I've been told there is nothing on the table to assist with this. One idea given to me is to use the job # field for both the Sales/Purchase Order for a stop gap. That is great, but I have to run a report on the PO side in order to find the Job#. I'd like to be able to query the…

  16. COP Transfer Order - Skip Transit Location if

    COP Transfer Order - Skip transit location if order transit days = 0

    Currently, when processing a COP Transfer Order, system transfers to Transit Location when order is invoiced, and then requires user to do Receiving Transfer Order Processing to transfer material from transit location to destination.

    Propose that if Order Transit Days = 0, system transfers to destination location when order is invoiced - skipping the transit location and eliminating the need to process via Receiving Transfer Order Processing to complete the transfer.

  17. Partially Received Purchase Order Utility

    Currently when receiving a partial shipment against a purchase order we are able to record the receipt and the PO inquiry shows the original order and received quantity correctly. This creates a "back order" quantity due on the PO. Item quantities on order fields show the back orders still open as long as the PO is not closed during receiving.

    Reprinting the PO shows the original item Quantity and extends the amounts based on the original quantity.

    It would be helpful to have a utility to reprint partially received POs showing the back order quantity and the new item extensions.…

  18. 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.
    3.…

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
