  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow "Set TRX Audit File Beginning Balances" to run as a deferred process

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Purge Utility for SYACTLOG (System Activity Log) Table

    SYACTLOG (System Activity Log) table contains the following kind of data:
    * Elliott Users Login
    * Web (Web Services) eContact Login
    * Email Activities
    * Credit Card Charges
    * Print Activities
    * Other activities
    This table tend to become very big and make it difficult to retrieve data. Currently, system does not have a purge utility for this table. It is suggested that we should provide a utility to allow users to purge this table for certain type of activities with cut-off date.

  11. Allow Changes to a Printed Plus Work Order

    Currently, once a plus production work order is printed no other changes can be made to the work order. If production has not started, users could be able to add material to the work order or change operation information since no material has been issued and no labor has been reported. Also, if the production work order has been started but production has not been reported for the parent item, additional operations could be added to the work order or work order operations that have not been started could be changed.

  12. List Screen Numbers and Field numbers when providing Upgrades

    It is certainly beneficial that when providing upgrade instructions you already list the Global Default Security settings that need to be addressed.

    However locating the appropriate Screen and Field numbers for these settings can be tedious. It would help if we were provided with the Screen and field numbers for each of the settings within the setup instructions instead of just making them a bullet (o).

  15. Access Customer File & Ship-To file Econtacts based on Ship-to Selections in Econtact Processor

    In Econtact Processor, it would be great to select Customer File and Ship-To file Econtacts together based on selections made on the ship-to level. Most econtacts are associated with the Customer File, not the Ship-To file.

    One example would be to select all Customer File and Ship-To File Econtacts that have a Ship-To location with a certain attribute on the account. Or select all Customer / Ship-To File Econtacts that have ship-to's in a specific state.

    This would create a more comprehensive email address list to send messages to.

  17. Stock Status Inquiry F5 function visibility

    In the newest update a split screen option was added to both the vendor inquiry and vendor file search fields. Is it possible to have this option for the stock status history (F5) screen so you can preview the details of each package name (PO,BM,CP etc.) without having to select each one?

  18. 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…
