  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).

  3. 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.

    Accounts Payable needs to be able to edit invoice numbers and comments after posting. In addition the ability to reapply credits would also save many steps.

  5. 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?

  6. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. Date of Last Manufacture listed on Costed Bill of Material Report

    It would be helpful if the Costed Bill of Material Report for a manufactured, stocked item included the date last manufactured.

  11. Default the amount on CC for PreA orders when doing billing to the Invoice total amount

    When doing Billing for a PreA order on the payment window, user has to enter the total invoice amount. In most of the cases the amount is the total user amount so I don't see the reason to default to zero. For the cases user wants to be in full control and enters the amount, this can be a Global setup filed (Default to zero or Total invoice amount). Another option is to default to zero and have a F Key to use the total invoice amount as the amount. I saw situations where user entered the wrong amount instead…

  12. Cancelled PO Line Printing

    When printing a PO with cancelled line or lines, the presentation is misleading and might cause an error on the vendor side. As we know Elliott print Cncl literal on cancelled lines but shows the quantity and the line total amount. The lines are not added to the total but I don't think its is enough, After cancelling the line, user cant even access field 19 and enter a comment. I think that the qty should be presented as 0 and the total line as zero. This is an old Macola behavior that we lived with and maybe it is…

  13. Order Import - add an option to move a GOOD file to a folder

    When doing Order Import, Netcellent introduced new flags, 26 and 27 that handles the move of a file with errors to a different folder, this is a good feature. For good files. Elliott deletes the import file. My understanding from a conversation with Mark is that this logic of NOT archiving the import file is because of the assumption that the file already created in an EDI system and exists there. But if the import is NOT from EDI (maybe the partner created it in the required format), forcing the user to save it in 2 places is an extra…

  14. Support Location, Product Category and Customer Type to Determine Sales and COGS

    Currently, Elliott allow defining sales and COGS account by location and product category. We are facing with the following complaints:
    (1) User only want to define sales account by product category, not by location. Because of the fix structure, user will have to define all combination of locations and product categories which is a burden.
    (2) Sometime user may miss a combination, as a result the sales and COGS go to the default account causing reconciliation problem. System should make it easier to find potential missing setup problem.
    (3) Some users want to define sales and COGS account by customer…

  15. Defer processing - Using it with system period control and system Date

    Being able to select Starting and Ending date in deferred processing would be a nice tool to have as it is
    Pre-defined. The accounting department runs the same reports every month and only the starting and ending
    Dates change. Does or can this feature be added easily? Also the option of running a report using the system date in
    Deferred processing would be helpful.

  16. 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.

  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. Sort by PO# or Ship Date in PO Inquiry by Item Window

    Our purchasing team would like to have the ability to sort by PO# or Ship Date in the PO Inquiry by Item window. This would quickly give them insight into the prior orders' quantities and costs of a particular item.

  19. obsolete item

    We would like to be able to create bills of materials with out using obsolete items. It would be nice to have a pop up window when you enter an obsolete item that tells you it is an obsolete item and wont allow you to use that item. We may have machinery out in the field that has the item that is now obsolete that we might still sell to them but we would like not to have the option to even use that item in a current build when creating the bill of material. I understand the "Transition an…

  20. 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.
