  1. 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…

  2. 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. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Shipping Confirmation Lot Processing, assign a lot to a new line created by the system

    When doing shipping confirmation with a lot item, and Elliott suggest to add a line because there is not enough quantity in a selected lot, the NEW line is NOT available to be selected with additional lot. I understand the reason as the new line was not part of the original lines marked as selected (with X). The fix for this situation is pretty easy (Cybermac did it for PolyGel and will be glad to share with Netcellent). Otherwise user has to exit the selection and come back in order to select the new line.

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. Is there a way to designate different expense accounts for different pay expense account for sick, vacation, FUTA, SUTA?

    When running payroll only one expense account is the default for sick, vacation, FUTA, SUTA, FICA. Is it possible to assign different expense accounts depending on the employee type so for example office salaries verses warehouse hourly employees are coded with differing wage expense account and corresponding tax accounts for profit center accounting. Right now I am doing a manual adjustment while running payroll for wage accounts in time transaction processing. Then at the end of the month I am manually figuring out how much tax for certain employee types need to be journaled to the correct corresponding tax account.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  17. Support Substitute Items Handling with Obsolete Items

    Currently, in Order Entry line item screen, when user enter an item, if it is out of stock, system allow me to look up the Substitute item defined for this item.

    On the other hand, if the item is obsoleted. Then the order entry line item screen will simply indicate the item is obsoleted and stop. It has been suggested that we should change the behavior so if the item is obsoleted, system will ask user if they wish to bring up substitute item if they are available. Please let us know if such a feature is desirable for you.

  19. Support PO Revision Control with Design Your Own (DYO) PO

    Currently, PO Revision Control is only supported with standard PO printing program. It is not supported with DYO PO. There are some users reported that they would like to use DYO PO, but they also need the PO Revision Control feature.

    We like to know if you have such a need. Also, since it is quite possible to use the standard PO printing program to do the same as DYO PO, we want to know your reason to use DYO PO.

  20. F4 - Showing Purchase order Revision level on ATP drill down

    In the ATP inquiry section when drilling down to a purchase order it would
    be nice to see the F4 revision level (like under purchase order inquiry).
    Going further it would be nice that it would automatically go the the specific part number based on the part number you are working with to
    save time.
