Allow to add a Ship To when adding a customer in Sales Desk
Sales Desk, F5 Options, Add new Customer, doesn't allow to add a Ship To and assumes Ship To is the same as Bill To. I suggest to allow to add a Ship To.
When on the ship-to field in Sales Desk, the user has the ability to add or change a ship-to via the F7 search function. We have changed the user interface for the ship-to file maintenance application. Ship-To Maintenance now prompts for ship-to numbers for the initially entered customer until Escape is pressed from the Ship-To Number field and a different customer number can be entered. Drilling down from Customer File Maintenance (8.2 and above) or accessing it on the fly from the search window will only allow the customer number passed to to be used. Pressing Escape on the Ship-To Number field will return Elliott back to the menu bar and selecting Add, Change, or Delete will use the passed customer number and place the cursor on the Ship-To Number field. This change will be available in the next Elliott release.
We are evaluating to add the ability so we can add or change a ship-to in Sales Desk, or order entry, by using the special function. The system will launch add, or change ship-to task by pre-populate the customer number so users does not need to enter the customer again. But user still need to manually enter the ship-to number once back to the sales desk or order entry screen because these are two different process and we can't pass the ship-to number back easily.
