  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Mass Update Customer Csv Import

    The Customer/eContact Import Utility is designed more toward adding customers or eContacts. It does not work as well as a generic tool to update existing customer fields. Therefore, it is suggested that we should have a generic utility to mass update customer by CSV to support the following fields: Salesman, Collector, Territory, Location, Customer Type, Ship via, Terms, Ship to Days, Freight Pay Code, UPS Zone, Credit Rating, Credit Limit, Comment 1 & 2, Form#, Customer Note 1 - 5, User Amount, User Date.

  5. 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.

  6. Create number of Shipping Labels based on Customer Item pack size

    When creating shipping labels, the number of labels created should first look at the customer item pack size and then default to the item file pack size. If there's a shipment for 20, with the item pack size being 4 and customer pack size being 10, we want 2 labels to print, not 5.

  7. Label printing option in put-away screen

    Is it possible to have a prompt or an option to print labels during the put-away process? Maybe a prompt that would say "Do you need a shelf label for this item" and have the default to N, but if "Y", print the label immediately; or an F2 function to print the label.

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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?

  11. Add F1 and F2 (already taken) to scroll forward and backward on Stock Status Inquiry

    When doing Stock status Inquiry user might want to browse through the items. Now user has to escape out and enter the next item number. I suggest to add F1 to scroll forward. I was thinking about F2 to scroll backward but as F2 is already used another F key might be required.

  12. Allow Deferred Processing for Post Office

    Scheduling Post Office activities will be an excellent tool. For example, running the Printing Order Acknowledgement with Post Office every hour automatically using the Deferred Processing. Now it has to be done manually. When having intensive order entry operation, printing / emailing an immediate order acknowledgement slows down the operation and this has to be done in batch mode.

  13. Allow 2 operators to log into the same WoP job

    Many of our clients want the ability to allow multiple workers to scan into the same Work Order. We know there's a workaround by having the 2nd worker log in to the work center instead of the job, but for many of the floor workers this complicates things. Ideally the Floor Manager tells the 2nd worker to log into the work center, but in many cases things are busy and hectic, and Worker B logs in to a job worker A is in. Now A is kicked out and his time is no longer being tracked (unknown to him), and…

    We are not aware of the 2nd operator to replace the first operator scenario. We will do a test to check if that’s the case. In the mean time, we think it is a good idea to offer the 2nd operator the option to login the work center automatically when the 1st operator is already on that job. This way, the 2nd operator time become the share labor. When the 2nd operator leave that job by working on other job, the share labor time automatically stop. Is this something you image how it should work?

  14. Email Locking Event to Offending User

    Currently, Elliott allow subscribing a management event by going to Global Setup, Press Detail Event button, and F5 key to insert the LCKEVENT - Record Lock Triggered Per Min. When a record lock over one minute is taking place, this event email can be sent to a specific person, like the admin of the organization.

    It is suggested that this email should be sent to the offending user (the user who create the locking condition in the first place). The issue we had was that we know the offending user Windows login, but we do not know the Elliott corresponding…

  15. Email Credit Card Receipt upon Credit Card Charges in Elliott

    It will be nice to email user the credit card receipt upon the following type of credit card transactions:

    Sales, Refund, Complete, Force, Void

    There's no need for Pre-authorization. This feature need to be turned on through global setup in the on-line credit card processing area because not all Elliott users necessary want this feature. The default value is "N". The user who will receive the credit card receipt is determined as followings:
    (1) From Sales Desk, the primary contacts on the ship-to or customers.
    (2) From Order Entry Billing screen, the primary contacts on the order, if not, the…

  16. Recover from "Unable to Read your Users record (9/068)" Error Automatically

    If a user's computer crashes or their session ends unexpectedly while they are in Elliott they could receive the error "Unable to Read your Users record (9/068). You cannot use Elliott until this is resolved." when they try to log back in.

    As far as we know, there is no way for the user to help their situation. If no one with elevated privileges is available to use the PSQL Monitor to delete their invalid user sessions, the user cannot work.

    There should be an automatic way for the system to recover from these errors or some process the user…

  18. Purchase Unit of Measure by Item Vendor File Maintenance:

    Purchase Unit of Measure by Item Vendor File Maintenance:
    Currently we can purchase an item with a different unit of measure from the stocking U of M by utilizing field 12 fo the item Master File.

    However all possible vendors for the same item do not sell in the same U of M. (ie Stock by Yard, Purchase by Yard or Meter).

    Since we already have a ITEM VENDOR FILE MAINTENACE could we add a Vendor U of M and a Purch to Stock Ratio filed that would be referenced when creating and receiving a PO the same way it…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
