  1. Shipment Verification display option of items not scanned

    With orders of over 120 line items it is tedious to check for items not scanned. An option for items not completely filled that includes the bin location and UPC code would be handy.

  3. Print Bin Locations on Purchase Orders

    Unless you're using the warehouse module or transfers there is no way to direct the warehouse personnel where items should be put away in the warehouse

    Printing a Bin Location on a purchase order would greatly facilitate putting stock away when it comes in. To accomplish this the BIN LOCATION can be added to the PO FORM SETUP. This way it would be optional for each company.

    In lieu of this the BIN location may be printed on the Receiving Edit list or the Posting Report.

  4. Allow 2 operators to log into the same WoP job

    Many of our clients want the ability to allow multiple workers to scan into the same Work Order. We know there's a workaround by having the 2nd worker log in to the work center instead of the job, but for many of the floor workers this complicates things. Ideally the Floor Manager tells the 2nd worker to log into the work center, but in many cases things are busy and hectic, and Worker B logs in to a job worker A is in. Now A is kicked out and his time is no longer being tracked (unknown to him), and…

    We are not aware of the 2nd operator to replace the first operator scenario. We will do a test to check if that’s the case. In the mean time, we think it is a good idea to offer the 2nd operator the option to login the work center automatically when the 1st operator is already on that job. This way, the 2nd operator time become the share labor. When the 2nd operator leave that job by working on other job, the share labor time automatically stop. Is this something you image how it should work?

  5. Allow a credit card refund to be processed when processing a credit memo

    Instead of having to go to "credit card handle", it would be very helpful if you could process a credit card refund when processing a credit memo.

  6. Email Credit Card Receipt upon Credit Card Charges in Elliott

    It will be nice to email user the credit card receipt upon the following type of credit card transactions:

    Sales, Refund, Complete, Force, Void

    There's no need for Pre-authorization. This feature need to be turned on through global setup in the on-line credit card processing area because not all Elliott users necessary want this feature. The default value is "N". The user who will receive the credit card receipt is determined as followings:
    (1) From Sales Desk, the primary contacts on the ship-to or customers.
    (2) From Order Entry Billing screen, the primary contacts on the order, if not, the…

  7. Prevent Excel Drop Leading Zeroes in CSV Item Number Field

    When I export Elliott's Item Number to CSV through either Export Processor, or Elliott provided reports with CSV export option, the leading zeroes will be dropped when I open it with Excel. For example, item number 0100, when open the CSV in Excel, it is displayed as 100. I found the following article that can address this issue:

    https://superuser.com/questions/330291/how-to-stop-excel-from-auto-formatting-and-making-it-work-like-a-number-crunchin

    This article suggest instead of exporting item number 0100 in the CSV as "0100", we can add a equal sign "=" in the front to make it ="0100", this way, Excel will preserve the leading zero.

  8. Running Order Edit List based on Qty Ordered

    When running List, Edit List from COP Order Entry there is no option to run the report based on "qty ordered" instead of "qty to ship". Companies that default the "qty to ship" to zero get misleading information, on the total value of the opened orders.

  9. 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.

  10. Log All Activity Performed in Re-Apply Cr/Dr Memos Function

    Currently, there is no posting, events, logging or audit trail related to the Re-Apply Cr/Dr Memos functionality. This makes it difficult to figure out why something was reapplied or changed and who did it. In a small environment one user could be in charge of all re-applies, but in a larger organization this isn't feasible to get all of the work done.

    I suggest a log file be created that logs all changes made through the function with the date/time, user and workstation information.

  11. Mass Update Customer Csv Import

    The Customer/eContact Import Utility is designed more toward adding customers or eContacts. It does not work as well as a generic tool to update existing customer fields. Therefore, it is suggested that we should have a generic utility to mass update customer by CSV to support the following fields: Salesman, Collector, Territory, Location, Customer Type, Ship via, Terms, Ship to Days, Freight Pay Code, UPS Zone, Credit Rating, Credit Limit, Comment 1 & 2, Form#, Customer Note 1 - 5, User Amount, User Date.

  12. Post Labor and Overhead Transactions as they are captured not only when quantities are reported.

    Labor and overhead are only being posted from BoM when a quantity is reported. For example if a worker is working on building 1 machine for 5 days, every day he reports 0 completed until the 5th day when he completes it. The first 4 days, nothing comes to the GL for Labor or Overhead. On the 5th day when the 1 is completed, ALL the labor and overhead goes to that one day. The amount of labor should show up every day rather than all in 1 time.

    We are reviewing this requirement and determine it may be difficult to implement. Instead, we suggest to create a new “Production Time Not Captured Report” to address your issue.

    This report will look at all production time card data currently that had not create the production transaction because of zero quantity reported. You can then use this report to find out the total WIP value of labor and burden (not including materials) for these production time at month end. Then you can make an accrual journal entry to capture the WIP value.

    This report must run at month end in order for the value to be accurate. You can use defer processing to ensure that it will run at the month end at the right time.

    We think this is an approach that will be less complicated and risky. Please advise if this is a solution workable for you.

  13. Allow to Edit Certain Customer Information from Order Entry

    One of the common issue is when sales rep is taking order from customer, they like to have to opportunity to update customer address and phone. We don't want to give salesman the right to change customer which then they can change other sensitive fields like Salesman ID for the customer. So it will be ideal if we can give salesman the right to change customer in a limited way, like changing the address, contact, phone number...etc.

    Currently, there is such a feature in Sales Desk, where after user enter the customer number, they can press F5=Option and choose to…

  14. Add an Event that Fires when a Purchase Order is entered in Purchase Order Processing

    There is currently no event that fires when a purchase order is entered in Purchase Order Processing. This would be a very useful to:

    - alert users when PO's are entered for certain vendors via email
    - provide message boxes with special instructions for certain vendors or PO types
    - warn users if something needs to be done on a vendor account before a PO is entered
    - alert users when certain PO locations are entered

    etc...

  15. Restricted option to prevent selling below minimum price setting

    We appreciate the warning when selling below the minimum selling price but there should be an option in the Global set up to lock this option in or still allow sellers to continue after they are warned. I understand its an internal management function but it would really save us time and money in the long run, it would be a valuable function for Elliott and something that we need. Please

  16. Print UPC Code on Invoice

    Currently, UPC Code is one of the item note field which can be printed on the invoice. However, item note filed is reserved for 30 digits. I only want to print the first 12 digits so the UPC code does not encroach into the space of field on the right side. Can you make a change to detect if a particular item note field is a UPC code code and set the size accordingly.
