  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.…

  12. 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

  13. Item costs in multi warehouse where costs are different

    Do you have an idea on how to handle this or do we just use different item numbers?

  14. 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…

  15. Exclude Categories in production Schedule Report

    Is it possible to Exclude Categories in production Schedule Report

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
