  1. 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.

  2. Transition an Item to Obsolete

    Currently, if an item is marked as obsolete, then we don't allow our users to sell it. This is done through Global Setup -> Cop-Func -> Order Line Item Screen, flag "7. Allow Entry For Obsolete Item in COP Line Item".

    However, in many situations, we may still have inventory left and we still want to sell them before totally obsolete it. Therefore, we need to keep the item as "A" (Active). But in the mean time, we need to prevent the purchasing of this item. We can't warn the user if the item stay as "A" (Active).

    Can we…

  3. Print Duplicate Invoices from Invoice History by Range Criteria

    Currently, user can print duplicate posted invoice by going to COP -> Processing -> Print Duplicate Invoice. However, this function only allow printing invoice one at a time. It may be desirable for some users to print by range, i.e. starting invoice number and ending invoice number.

    For example, one use case is a salesman prepare a list of invoices for a customer purchased for the prior month as a special customer services. In that case, the salesman would like to prompt for "Customer Number" and "Staring/Ending Invoice Date". Please provide feed back on your use case so we can…

  4. 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.

    This has been addressed for the following fields – item number, 25 character PO number, tracking number, and UPC codes. The change will be available in the next Elliott release. For further information on this change, refer to http://support.elliott.com/knowledgebase/articles/1832839-feature-prevent-excel-drop-leading-zeroes-in-csv concerning the changes for Elliott reports with CSV support and http://support.elliott.com/knowledgebase/articles/1833061-feature-equal-sign-support-in-export-processor concerning changes to the V8.2 Export Processor.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. Utility to Reset AP Vendor Amount Paid Year to Day (YTD) and Last Year

    Currently, there are utility to reset AR customer sales PTD, YTD and Last Year. But there's no utility to reset AP vendor amount paid year to day (YTD) and last year. We need vendor amount paid year to day or last year to print 1099. But sometime we have difficulty with closing a year at exactly the year end. We may still wait for invoices that's not received yet past the new year day. Thus can't clear the vendor's YTD and Last Year accumulator at the right time. This utility will give us the flexibility. For this utility, the YTD…

  8. Add Function Key to Print Duplicate Invoices from Order Inquiry

    When looking at the invoice history for a customer in Order Inquiry, it would be very convenient to hit a function key and print a duplicate invoice for the highlighted invoice. This would be much more efficient that typing invoice numbers into Print Duplicate invoice and referring back and forth between 2 screens. This would work very similar to the ability to print picking tickets from Order Inquiry.

  9. 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.

  10. Add Salesman Column to Open Order by Customer CSV Export

    Currently, there's no way to export open order by salesman report to CSV. On the other hand, there's the option to export op[en order by customer report to CSV. The issue is the Salesman column is not in this CSV export. I suggest to add the salesman column to Open Order by Customer CSV export, before the PO# column. This way, the same CSV export can be used as by Customer, by Item, By Salesman depend on how you choose to sort in the spreadsheet.

  11. Allow to Add Notes When Adding BOMP Work Orders

    We need to show work order notes during printing work order. At this moment, you can add work order notes during change or inquire of the work order.

    However, when I am adding a work order in BOMP module, systems do not allow me to add the notes at the same time. I must complete the work order first and go to the change mode before I can add notes to this work order. That's not convenient.

    Can you change work order processing so I can add notes to the work order during the adding of that work order?

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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...

  15. Order Header Ship Date Change Event

    Unless I cannot find it, there is no event that fires when the ship date for an order is changed. This would be very beneficial as this important piece of historical information is not recorded anywhere.

    As we had discussed the reason for this request with Aaron is because currently, when user change the order ship date, even thought that cause the mass update of line item promise date, but system does not update line item audit trail. We now had made a change to create line item audit trail record to address this issue. The update will be available in the next Elliott release.

  16. Add Minimum Price Support to Future Price Processing

    We use future price processing extensively. We love the new feature you added for "minimum price" in the item master file. But "minimum price" is not supported in Future Price Processing. We like to update future price with minimum price together. Is that possible?

  17. Blow Through & Flatten Phantom Non-Stock Items When Create BOMP Material or Plus Work Order

    The BOMP (Bill of Materials) often have a challenge to reconcile how engineering and production like to setup the product structure.

    From the engineering point of view, they like to use phantom (non-stock parent) items as a logical module and reference them through out the BOMP product structure setup. When they need to change this logic module, they only need to change the phantom item product structure in a central place. This is much easier for them to manage. If they don't use phantom items, they will need to edit the BOM product structure item by item. So every time,…

  18. Print UPC Code on Invoice

    Currently, UPC Code is one of the item note field which can be printed on the invoice. However, item note filed is reserved for 30 digits. I only want to print the first 12 digits so the UPC code does not encroach into the space of field on the right side. Can you make a change to detect if a particular item note field is a UPC code code and set the size accordingly.

    Form Maintenance has been changed to determine which item note field is used for the UPC code according to the Additional Search Key option in Global Setup. If an item note field is designated as a UPC code, the field size will be limited to 14 characters in form maintenance. This is to support the printing of GTIN codes stored in the item note field as well as UPC codes.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
