  1. 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).

  2. Customer Item Lookup

    Customer Order entry is already supported with Customer Item Lookups by Customer Item and Customer Description. This is the only place where a customer item can be entered to determine what the Elliott Item number is.

    It would be beneficial to have this same ability in sales desk as well as in CUSTOMER ITEM FILE MAINTENANCE --> CHANGE.
    An INQUIRY Feature in CUSTOMER ITEM FILE MAINTENANCE would also be helpful so that users without permissions for change still have access to the lookup.

  3. Support Check Reference in AP Manual Check Processing or AP Account Inquiry

    Like the voucher reference, it would be nice if we can support check reference for check record in AP Open Item file. Users can store wire transaction ID or other pertinent information in check reference. Giving the fact that more an more payments are done electronically, it is important to give user a way to record the reference information since there's really no check number in that case.

    Suggest to allow users to indicate the check reference in manual check processing. The check reference information should show on A/P Account (& Summary) Inquiry. Give user the ability to edit the…

  4. Support Phantom Locking with Item and Customer Change

    Currently, most of the locking conflicts in Elliott come from user going to item or customer file maintenance change mode. User keep the change record on the screen without releasing it. This can happen when the user is interrupt with a phone call, or has to take a break. This however, causing extensive locking for other users who need to update the item or customer record and wait have to wait in the locking loop until this record is released.

    It is suggested that we should consider implementing phantom locking on Item and Customer in the change mode to avoid…

  5. Access the Payment Window from the Order or Invoice Inquiry Screen

    Is this new feature for viewing only or can you enter payment information as well once an order is Billed, Invoiced, or Posted?

    If for more than viewing, do you have an article on this? I couldn't find anything more than it being listed on updates in 8.2

  6. Adding selection of Vendor number to A/P Value Report

    It would be nice to have the option of selecting Vendor number
    under field number 8 on the A/P Inventory Value Report.

  7. GL Interface Out of Balance Error Fix

    When "POSTING INVOICES TO AR" AR from COP while at the same time running GL "INTERFACE FROM AR" it can result in an out of Balance Error in the Interface. BTRIEVE should prevent this from happening. If not BTRIEVE we need another way to prevent these processes from being run simultaneously.

  8. Exclude Categories in production Schedule Report

    Is it possible to Exclude Categories in production Schedule Report
    like the feature in the Customer Delivery Performance Report?
    I believe it allows for 5 categories to be excluded.

  9. COP Pick Ticket - Default Line Item Promise date Cut Off Option

    When Printing a Pick Ticker Field 4 is defaulted to the current date. We all understand the reason for that. Some companies would like to default to 12/31/30 (similar to the Billing option), so ALL Pick tickets are printed. I suggest to add an option similar to the Global Setup, COP Function Order Billing Field 12 to the Global Setup, Pick/Pack Ticket/Ship Label screen.

  10. Shipping Verification and Non-Stock items

    Shipping Verification will force non-stocked items into Box 1, regardless of what box is actually being filled.

    At Mercer Tool, there are many items purchased from an outside source, typically for one-off shipments - that would make no sense to set up as Stocked. Often these are custom made, and are shipped complete as soon as they arrive.

    However, since they are not set up as stocked, shipping verification doesn't work as planned, since all these items will go into Box 1 automatically. Often these items are heavy, and can not all be forced into the same box.

    Please consider…

  11. Move Landed Cost Calculation report to show in PO

    Although the Landed cost calculation report is run from the PO module, it is currently grouped with the IM reports in the Spool manager. I suggest that the report should be renamed to that it is listed with the PO reports.

  12. Purge Posted Orders by Customer and Date Range

    Purge Customer Order by Customer and Date Range...
    Currently sales orders can only be purged by a THRU date (ending date). By changing the date to a range and adding a customer range we could delete orders specific to a customer and to a specific time while retaining the orders for other customers. This would come in handy when you have many EDI orders for a specific customer.

  13. Available to Promise Period Summary - Menu choice for inventory class

    When using ATP period summary report
    It would be nice to see a menu option where you can select
    inventory class

    This ways clients could focus on there A, B and C inventory classes to see if they are hitting their inventory turns on a specific class.

  14. 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.

  16. Option to Supress Total Weight When Print Packing List

    Currently, when print packing list, the total weight is always printed at the the bottom of the packing list like:
    TTL WEIGHT - 999,999.999
    It has been suggested by some users that the total weight in Elliott is not necessary correct due to various reasons. Therefore, it would be desirable if the packing list does not print total weight. We could potentially introduce a global setup flag for this purpose. If we should make this change, this flag should apply to both regular packing list, as well as packing list by box.

    Please let us know how do you feel…

  17. Put An Order On Hold Or Choose Third Party Billing From Sales Desk Screen

    Currently we don't have the ability to place an order on hold or to select third party billing when writing up a new order through sales desk. We have to go back into an order entry screen to put in the H for hold, T for third party billing, etc. Having the ability to do that when closing out an order in sales desk would be very helpful.

  18. View Invoice from Invoice History Inquiry by Customer/Item

    When going into Invoice History Inquiry, if you look up invoices by item# you can select/highlight a specific invoice and see the details of.

    However, this option is not available when searching invoices by customer and then item#. You have to then go back or open another window to see the details of that specific invoice.

  19. Change the logging of Mass Email to be by user and date

    Right now, if multiple users are sending mass emails at the same time Elliott will try to record everything in the log file. Since there are multiple users sending emails at the same time, the log file will get locked and a new one will be create. This happens over and over resulting in many, many log files.

    If the log files were recorded by USER and Date there would be no concurrency issue. Each user would write to their own log file and there would be far less log files created in a day.

  20. Do Not Print Line Items on Pick Ticket If Order Is To Be Put on Hold

    In Global Setup -> Cop-Func -> Pick Ticket/Ship Label, there's a flag "38. Print Pick Ticket if Put on Hold ?" Some users set this flag to "Y" so the pick ticket hard code will still be printed. Even though there's a big warning message in "*" to ask picker not to ship, but sometime the order still get shipped anyway. Therefore, it is suggested that if the pick ticket is going to be printed when the order is to put on hold, do not print the line items on pick ticket. This way, we can prevent user from ignoring…
