  1. Cash receipt Import - Allow over payment and Allowence

    When importing a detailed cash receipt, Elliott doesn't allow over payment to an invoice. I suggest to allow over payment as this might happen. In addition, cash receipt csv might have an allowance line (a deduction). it will be nice to allow the allowance to go through as a negative cash receipt as well.

  2. Display Literal "Press Down Arrow Key to Change Material" in Material Work Order Change Mode

    In Material Work Order change mode, if user with to change the material, they must place the cursor at Qty field and press down arrow. If user press the Enter key instead, then the Material window does not show up. This often cause confusion.

    It is suggested that we display the "Press Down Arrow Key to Change Material" literal at the Qty field if the condition allow (i.e. WO is not allocated, printed or completed.)

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  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. 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.

    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?

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
