  1. 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.

  2. wild card search

    It would be very beneficial to have a wild card search. Example: When searching in inventory we only have the benefits of searching the beginning of the description, part number, substitute item,etc. It would be very helpful to put a word in and have it search all of the descriptions and item numbers and show all items that have the same string of characters wherever they happen to be.

  3. Total for number of orders by item,Product category,customer, ship-to on summary, brief and detail COP reports

    When running the COP open orders report it would be nice in the sub total area to know how many orders by item,Product category,customer, ship-to on summary, brief and detail COP reports.
    Currently QTY, B/O Qty, Value are all being totaled except the number of orders. It appears there would be space to allow for this in the standard reports.

  4. Looking for the ability to change promise date on PO after Print and have Delivery Performance Report acknowledge the updated date

    We constantly need to change internal priorities for deliveries after the PO has been issued to the vendor. We change the promise date to reflect this. Unfortunately the Delivery Performance Report isn't able to account for this. It still reads the original date. The vendor shouldn't be held accountable for our internal change of priority. It makes this report unusable for us. Can there be an option for the delivery report to read the adjusted promise date and not the original?

  5. 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.

  6. Add a flag in the Global setup to allow (or not allow) a Y in the "Zero Quantity On Hand For Missing Tag Items? when postin Physical Count

    This is a dangerous field and even if only authorized users can run the posting physical count a mistake can be made. A simple flag on the Global setup can prevent a situation where user change the N to Y. I am aware that there are warning, but from an experience with users, these warning are not preventing these mistakes where items value are zero because user changed the N to Y.

  7. Allow Vendor Account Inquiry in PO# order

    Our Vendor POs often have multiple line items delivered over two or three months. A display in PO number order would assist in checking the current status of that POs invoice/payment history.

  8. Show Inventory Transfer Status in COP Order Inquiry Screen

    Now that we implemented multi-bin with I/M Inventory Transfer Processing. We like to know if we can have information displayed of the order in COP Order Inquiry screen. Currently, it only show me if the order is picked (after picking ticket printed), billed or invoiced. I like to know if the order is:
    * actually in picking (the transfer ticket was generated);
    * they have moved from the bin locations to the "ship" bin location;
    For example, if the transfer ticket is printed, we can show one "*" beside the Date Picked field. If the transfer batch is completed or…

  9. Change the GL Reference for PO Receiving.

    Use the PO#-Rel-Line no,-Item number as the reference instead of the current structure that shows the meaningless PO Doc #.

  10. Allow to add a Ship To when adding a customer in Sales Desk

    Sales Desk, F5 Options, Add new Customer, doesn't allow to add a Ship To and assumes Ship To is the same as Bill To. I suggest to allow to add a Ship To.

  11. Add Support for POCOMFIL to Export Processor

    When entering a purchase order and adding F2 comments on the line item screen, the comments are stored in the POCOMFIL table. Currently the Export Processor does not support exporting the information from this file.

    We propose adding support for this file.

  13. Available to Promise inquiry screen

    Is it possible to make a selection (source) that a user could show either the planning suggestions LP- or LP+ instead of both on the ATP inquiry screen?

  14. eContact on location

    When you need to email the Pick Ticket to a remote warehouse (might be a 3rd party), it will be nice to use the Post Office.
    1. Add the Pick Ticket as possible Post Office Document.
    2. Allow to assign the Pick Ticket on the eContact of the location. Elliott allows to add an eContact to a location in the Location file maintenance.
    3. In order entry add the eContact of the location to the order.
    4. When printing Pick Ticket, allow Post Office (now only PDF is allowed).
    Cybermac plans to create a modification that will do the above…

  15. Resolve Cost Adjustment Issues Across Multiple Asset Accounts

    Resolve Cost Adjustment Issues Across Multiple Asset Accounts

    Currently, if you post a Cost Adjustment to an item that has QOH in multiple locations, with a different assigned GL Asset Account per location (via material cost type/location account control), the system defaults to writing the _entire_ adjustment (qty summed across all locations) to the asset account indicated by the transaction location. If posted, this creates immediate discrepancy between effected GL Asset Account balances and the Stock Status by GL Report. Would like to see the system pre-fill distributions to accommodate this scenario, allowing user to choose final distribution account(s) to…

  16. Add Job Number to IM/AR/AP distribution files

    Add Job Number, etc. to IM/AR/AP/etc. distribution files (similar to BMDISFIL)

    The new BMDISFIL is a tremendous source of information, containing far more relevant fields from the originating transaction than the other distribution files. Would like to see the other subledger files expanded to include relevant data from the originating transaction, similar to the BMDISFIL, including but not limited to the job number.

  17. Direct Ship Orders

    Our business model is 90% direct ship orders. Right now there is no correlation between the Sales Order and the Purchase Order number which is causing us lots of issues due to the volume of orders we take. I've been told there is nothing on the table to assist with this. One idea given to me is to use the job # field for both the Sales/Purchase Order for a stop gap. That is great, but I have to run a report on the PO side in order to find the Job#. I'd like to be able to query the…

  18. Limit access to Mass Replace function

    We seem to have a need to limit access to the "Mass Replace" function in the Bills of Material / Maintenance / Product Structure. Would be nice if there was a global security option to at least have a warning show up to notify operator something like "Supervisor Permission is Required to Proceed With Mass Replace"

  19. COP Transfer Order - Skip Transit Location if

    COP Transfer Order - Skip transit location if order transit days = 0

    Currently, when processing a COP Transfer Order, system transfers to Transit Location when order is invoiced, and then requires user to do Receiving Transfer Order Processing to transfer material from transit location to destination.

    Propose that if Order Transit Days = 0, system transfers to destination location when order is invoiced - skipping the transit location and eliminating the need to process via Receiving Transfer Order Processing to complete the transfer.

  20. Partially Received Purchase Order Utility

    Currently when receiving a partial shipment against a purchase order we are able to record the receipt and the PO inquiry shows the original order and received quantity correctly. This creates a "back order" quantity due on the PO. Item quantities on order fields show the back orders still open as long as the PO is not closed during receiving.

    Reprinting the PO shows the original item Quantity and extends the amounts based on the original quantity.

    It would be helpful to have a utility to reprint partially received POs showing the back order quantity and the new item extensions.…
