  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Show non-inventory items on picking list by bills

    When printing a picking list by bill it does not show non-inventory tracked items. I need the non-inventory items that are a part of produc t structures to show up on picking list by bills.

  14. Balance Sheet Net Income from Last Year - Fix Temporary Year End Out of Balance Issue

    For users who do temporary year end, from the time of temporary year end to the final year end, the General Ledger Balance Sheet will be out of balance.

    This is because the Balance Sheet Net Income (BSNI) only calculate the number from this year once you do a temporary year end. In the mean time, the detail transaction for last year is still there because final year end is not done.

    It has been suggested, that we can introduce another financial statement layout code:
    LYNI = Last Year Net Income
    This is similar to BSNI. But LYNI only reflect…

  15. Attribute heading tied to the customer file

    Currently, when we view the heading of an attribute tied to the customer, it is only showing the customer name, but not the customer number. If you were to view an attribute tied to an item, it shows the item number. We would like to see the customer number in the heading of the attribute, if possible.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Shipment Verification display option of items not scanned

    With orders of over 120 line items it is tedious to check for items not scanned. An option for items not completely filled that includes the bin location and UPC code would be handy.
