  1. Allow Salesman to get customer/order/invoice history of another Salesman.

    In the situations where salesman gets control of another salesman customers, the new salesman can't see the old salesman invoices. There might be a situation where the new salesman takes control only on opened orders I suggest to have 3 levels of global security:
    1. At Customer, Order and Invoice history. This is what currently Elliott supports. Salesman can see orders and invoices only if they match the Salesman on the customer file and the user security.
    2. At Customer/open order level only. In this case salesman can see opened orders belong to the customer even if the salesman is…

  2. Allow Re-Sequence a Routing

    Elliott Work Order Plus allows user to change the Operation ID but if user wants to re-sequence a routing a manual change for each operation id is required (from the last operation going back). Elliott should allow a re-sequence similar to the BOM Product structure. Thanks, Avi.

  3. Bank Book to allow print both Summary and Detail when pressing F1

    When the reconciliation is completed user is prompted to press F1 to complete the process. Elliott then prompts the user to print Summary OR Detail report but not both. The system should allow to print Both and this should be the default (or change the BB Setup for the default as N, D, S, B). Currently all my BB users exit the processing, go to the reports, print both Summary and Detail and then go to the processing to complete the reconciliation by press F1.

  4. Prevent Two Conflict Defer Processings Running at The Same Time

    It is well known that if user run defer processing on two different workstations at the same time can cause problem. The following knowledgebase article show this may cause error 80: http://support.elliott.com/knowledgebase/articles/814293-btrieve-error-80-during-defer-processing. The type of error is not limit to Error 80. It can also be error 25. Another recent support incident shows that this cause quantity allocation double due to running reset quantity allocation at the same time on two different machine through defer. So running defer processing at the same time on different workstations is very problematic.

    Elliott does not prevent two Defer Processing tasks from running…

  6. Enter Salesman 2 and 3 with 0% (Zero Percent)

    In order entry or sales desk, currently Elliott systems allow up to 3 salesman. Each salesman will need to have a percentage split with total 3 salesman percentage add up to 100%.

    In some situations, it may be desirable to enter salesman 1 with 100% and salesman 2 and 3 with 0% for referencing purpose. In many cases, the commission needs to be handled outside of Elliott. As long as the system can provide the reference of all salesman on the order, the information can then be retrieve by tools like Crystal Report.

    Let us know if this is something…

  7. Prompt user to create a new line while doing billing on a lot item even if lot has enough quantity

    When doing billing for a Lot item and the Lot doesn't have enough quantity Elliott prompts the user to add a new line for the remaining quantity. This is a good and necessary feature. But if the Lot entered has enough quantity, NOT all the quantity is coming from the same lot, the remaining quantity is put on back order and technically cannot be shipped on the same invoice. Currently this forces the user to ship everything on one lot and then doing an issue and receive transactions to adjust the lots. Obviously this is a bad practice but the…

  8. Support Substitute Items Handling with Obsolete Items

    Currently, in Order Entry line item screen, when user enter an item, if it is out of stock, system allow me to look up the Substitute item defined for this item.

    On the other hand, if the item is obsoleted. Then the order entry line item screen will simply indicate the item is obsoleted and stop. It has been suggested that we should change the behavior so if the item is obsoleted, system will ask user if they wish to bring up substitute item if they are available. Please let us know if such a feature is desirable for you.

  10. Support AP ACH Processing

    We recently introduced AR ACH Processing feature. Now we like to know from you if anyone is interested in AP ACH Processing. The idea is instead of printing AP check, for vendors who is flagged to pay by ACH, then system print A/P check, in stead of print the paper check, system will create NACHA file to pay electronically.

    Please let us know if you are interested in such a feature and any comments.

  11. Print or view user secuirty flags on one user.

    Currently you can only view user security for all users, There is no way to select 1, 2 users only to compare security flags.

  12. Check Reconciliation Enhancement - Allow upload of Check Numbers

    In AP Check Reconciliation, allow users to upload a CSV file with check numbers and amounts instead of hand keying in all checks.

    The F1 next check feature is useful, but it still requires a lot of looking back and forth between the Elliott screen and another source of data. In most cases, it is faster to enter the check numbers individually than use it.

    Most banks offer a download of the check statement, which can easily be formatted to upload into Elliott. This would save a lot of data entry time.

  13. Support PO Revision Control with Design Your Own (DYO) PO

    Currently, PO Revision Control is only supported with standard PO printing program. It is not supported with DYO PO. There are some users reported that they would like to use DYO PO, but they also need the PO Revision Control feature.

    We like to know if you have such a need. Also, since it is quite possible to use the standard PO printing program to do the same as DYO PO, we want to know your reason to use DYO PO.

  14. Support Copying of COP Transfer Order

    While Elliott supports copying regular COP orders, currently Elliott does not allow users to copy COP Transfer order. It had been suggested that Elliott should support it. If you are using COP Transfer order, and you think this is desirable to have. Please let us know.

  16. Remember the Beginning/Ending GL Cash Account in AP Comprehensive Cash Proejct Report

    In A/P -> Reports -> Cash Requirement Reports -> Print -> Comprehensive Cash Projection Report, it prompt for:

    2. Beginning G/L Cash Account
    3. Ending G/L Cash Account

    Since these two parameters, once entered, usually does not change in the future, so it is desirable if the system can remember the last used Staring/Ending G/L Cash Account.

  17. AP Comprehensive Cash Projection Report with Option to Export to CSV

    In A/P -> Reports -> Cash Requirement Reports -> Print -> Comprehensive Cash Projection Report is probably the best implementation of all the cash projection report through through out Elliott. There is a request now that it is desirable to export this report to CSV format. If we should do this, the export to CSV will be limited to the "Summary" format only.

  18. Attributes Returned in any Web Service Method should return their related System Code Value Description if available

    Attributes that have been defined to use a System Code Type do not return the related System Code Value Description when returned by a web service method capable of returning attributes. The System Code Value is displayed, which can only be 15 characters and upper case, while the System Code Value Description can be 30 characters and would be preferred to display online. This makes it hard to rely on the web services solely to retrieve all of the information one might need.

  19. Mass Create or Import for Product Category / Location Account File

    As you know, it is necessary to set up the G/L codes for each location
    whenever you add a location. Is there a way to do a mass create or import from a CSV file so all the product categories could be imported into a location with the proper G/L codes for sales and COGS?

  20. macro-recorder

    I would like to get a macro-recorder that after the task is complete a "MAC" file could easily be made from the collected text (IE: 0101 01 "TEXT-ENTERED-INTO-A-FIELD" {enter} ) or update the help documentation to clearly explain 06 0603 gets you to the ATP status.
    Remember, that some users don't have access to all menus so Util-Setup is not the 6th menu over but is (for me) the 5th menu over.
