  1. 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.

  2. Allow Print One Invoice to Print Duplicate Invoices for Order Not Posted

    There is no elegant way to print a duplicate invoice for an order that is not yet posted. Printers sometimes have issues or some other printing errors can occur while printing an invoice. Bad toner, bad printout, etc... If the invoice does not physically print there are only 2 options to get the invoice printed that I know of.

    1. Print a duplicate invoice using Print Invoices. This can be done, but will also lock all users from printing invoices if the user does not complete the task quickly enough. This options is not good for users not skilled in…

  3. 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).

  5. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. Allow to use wild card file name and multiple path when attaching documents in Elliott Post Office

    Elliott allows to use a variable on the Attach... field when sending a Post Office email. For example the variable InvNo will automatically attach a document with the invoice number as the file name. This is NICE. I suggest to allow multiple path in case the documents are in different folders and to allow wildcard. So instead of $InvNo$.pdf I can define $InvNo$*.*. For example if the invoice number is 123456, Elliott will attach 123456.DOC, 123456A.PDF etc. In addition user should be able to define different path so it can be something like M:\ELLIOTT8\DOC1\$InvNo$*.*, M:\ELLIOTT8\DOC2\$InvNo$*.*,M:\ELLIOTT8\DOC3\$InvNo$*.*. In this example, Elliott will…

  13. Inventory Transaction Inquiry Drill Down to Material WO should show added/changed transactions

    Currently if an item is added to a material work order at the time of receipt thru production transaction processing the drill down from stock-status-inquiry does not display the item that was added. Instead it seems to display the work order as it was originally created. Inventory transaction audit report displays the correct transaction.

  14. Default values for PO Import - Ship Via, FOB, Print Price

    I think the three fields Ship Via, FOB and Print Price should be added as defaults AND added to the layout for the import file.

  15. Customer delivery performance Report

    Would it be possible to include an option/selection when running
    the customer delivery performance report to allow the user to
    select not only by customer number but also to what ship to location?
    When dealing with large OEM customers it is common to have
    other ship to locations. When running this report all data's are included in the output. You could be delivering 100% to 2 ship to locations but say a 3rd only at 90% on time delivery.

  17. In Inquiry Screens,

    In inquiry screens, allow PageUP/PageDown keys to loop beginning/end of return set.

    For example, when doing an Order Inquiry, when you are on the _first_ page, pushing the Page UP key (which doesn’t do anything at the moment, on the first page), would actually wrap you around to what would in fact be the _last_ page. Make PageUP/PageDOWN work circularly through the return set, wrapping from the top to the bottom and the bottom to the top, as opposed to linearly, stopping at the bottom and stopping at the top like it does now.

  18. Customer Favorite Items

    Elliott currently supports Wish List items, which are items that customers would like to buy but cannot for some reason at the moment the item is added to the wish list. Its a great reminder system to build sales.

    The support for favorite items should also be added. Favorite items are basically a list of items the dealers likes to order. The process to add an item to a dealer's favorite list could be handled in sales desk similar to the wish list items. Any active item could be added to a favorite list.

    Users should be able to view…

  19. Add inventory location while in transaction processing.

    I would like to add inventory to a location in the inventory transaction screen. The warning is fine, but then have an "Ok to add Y/N" question. It's very time consuming when we add a new location or new product structure to leave the screen and put the item in the location control file.
