  1. Security Setup option to change order regardless Pick Ticket Printed status

    On the Global and User security, options 3 - 7 on screen 3, nicely control the user ability to add,and delete order and credit memo in COP but for change the control is only if Pick Ticket was printed. If you want to have the option NOT to allow a change, regardless the Pick Ticket status, it is impossible. For companies that do not print Pick ticket immediately, want to allow order entry (for Edit List or Print Acknowledgements) but not to allow a change of the order, it is a problem.

  2. CPORDOPT/BMOPTFIL/IMKITFIL - expand QTY field size

    CPORDOPT/BMOPTFIL/IMKITFIL - expand QTY field size

    Expand qty field size in CPORDOPT/BMOPTFIL/IMKITFIL so they are consistent with qty field size in CPORDLIN.

    Adjust UI to reflect.

    This requires a database change. This request should be made in the comment section under the Elliott V9 Changes Summary and Detail posting.

    The quantity field in these tables is the quantity per parent field. This type of change would affect more than the three tables that are listed in this request. An enlargement to the quantity per parent field would affect the Product Structure file (BMPRSTR) as well as all of the corresponding production tables, engineering change tables, ATP, order invoice history, etc.

    Woody, can you provide an example of where you require more than 9999 components per parent?

  3. Print Qty Received on labels

  4. Multiple 'Print to Screen' reports open - hard to figure out which is which

    Our engineers and others sometimes have multiple 'Print to Screen' reports open at one time for viewing purposes. If they are minimized at the bottom of the computer screen it is really hard to determine which report is which. Much trial and error to find the one you need at the time. You only have the file name created by Elliott as a reference to try and find it. If it is a Bill of Material, it would be nice to have the Item Number for the bill appear on the file name. Same issue with multiple 'Print to Screen'…

  5. Add "Pricing Category" to drive price calculation separate from "Product Category"

    Sales/Cost of Sales account structure isn't always consistent with pricing strategies, and vice versa. Having a single Product Category that drives both (Sales/Cost of Sales Accounts AND Price Codes) sometimes creates scenarios where you must create redundant Product Categories (and subsequent Prod Cat/Location entries) OR must create redundant Price Code entries.

    It would be nice if those two purposes could be split - leaving the traditional Product Category to drive Sales/Cost of Sales and establish a "Pricing Category" for reference in Price Code maintenance and subsequent price calculation.

    This would afford the greatest flexibility and ease of maintenance in environments…

  7. Allow an A Trx for Lot Item

    Elliott doesn't allow an A (Adjust) trx for a Lot Item. This is done for the obvious reason of keeping the integrity between the Qty OH on the Item Master / Inventory Location and the Lot qty. But as we know there are situations that this is not the case. Elliott allows L transactions that allows to adjust ONLY the Lot. I suggest to allow A transactions (with a warning or Global setup right).

  8. 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…

    In many situations, the purpose of the pre-authorization is ensure the credit card is valid so it can be used for future charge. Use the $0 pre-authorization will ensure the transaction does not show up on card owner’s side as a pending transaction. This may be desirable since the goods is not shipped yet.

    If we default pre-authorization to order amount, then (1) Are we talking about qty-to-ship amount, or total order amount base on quantity order? (2) Do we have all the freight, misc. charge and sales tax figured out on the order. This can be a complicated subject with no good answer.

    Conclusion, default pre-authorization amount to $0 create no harm. So we think that is a good default position to take in this case.

  9. Item file import feature for ATP Period Summary

    Would it be possible to add the feature of an Item file import
    like what is available in Gross Requirements? This would allow
    a focused view of part numbers.

    This support is available through the “Inventory Report Writer” now. This is accessible from I/M → Reports → Reorder Advice/User Defined CSV. The ATP Summary can be replaced by “User Defined CSV”. Moving forward we will not expand the functionality of various ATP reports. Instead, we are going to expand and improve the “User Defined CSV” so you can create your own reports. In your case, we believe the “User Defined CSV” can already do what you want. If you need help with the “User Defined CSV” application, let us know.

  10. 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.

  11. Customer delivery performance Report

    Would it be possible to include an option/selection when running
    the customer delivery performance report to allow the user to
    select not only by customer number but also to what ship to location?
    When dealing with large OEM customers it is common to have
    other ship to locations. When running this report all data's are included in the output. You could be delivering 100% to 2 ship to locations but say a 3rd only at 90% on time delivery.

  12. 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.

  13. Change Owner of Tracking Note Instead of Deleting It

    This idea is to have the Invoice Post change the owner of the tracking note instead of deleting it or leaving it as a tracking note in the Order Header. The note would still be created for the invoice with the owner STARSHIP so it retains the tracking number lookup, but the note attached to the Order Header would change the owner to the user posting invoices if the invoice is partially posted (backorders exist). This would retain the tracking number, but the order would need a new tracking note to meet the Tracking Number Required criteria.

    The Post Invoice…

  14. Customer Favorite Items

    Elliott currently supports Wish List items, which are items that customers would like to buy but cannot for some reason at the moment the item is added to the wish list. Its a great reminder system to build sales.

    The support for favorite items should also be added. Favorite items are basically a list of items the dealers likes to order. The process to add an item to a dealer's favorite list could be handled in sales desk similar to the wish list items. Any active item could be added to a favorite list.

    Users should be able to view…

  15. Add inventory location while in transaction processing.

    I would like to add inventory to a location in the inventory transaction screen. The warning is fine, but then have an "Ok to add Y/N" question. It's very time consuming when we add a new location or new product structure to leave the screen and put the item in the location control file.

  17. 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.

  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. Allow print bill of material with only item number, first line description, quantity, unit. No flags

    We use a 3rd party report writer to create written copies of the bills of materials to be used in the operation manuals for our machinery. these are saved as PDF files and entered using Adobe. We only show the Item Number, first line description, quantity used, and unit type (ie. EA, FT, SET etc.). It would be helpful to have the capability to print this straight out of Elliott. I have attached a page of one of our manuals for an example.

  20. 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…

    Avi, we already have a solution to handle the scenario. You can go to Global setup, Pick/Pack Ticket/Ship Label, flag “15. Default Pick Ticket Printer by Location”. Set it to “Y”.

    The during printing of pick ticket, base on the location you enter for the pick ticket, the workstation id will be different. As as result, you can setup print option window differently base on different warehouse location.

    As you know that we can already printing to PDF and email. So all you have to do is to setup the email destination in email tab. Then the whole thing will flow correctly.
