  1. Date of Last Manufacture listed on Costed Bill of Material Report

    It would be helpful if the Costed Bill of Material Report for a manufactured, stocked item included the date last manufactured.

  2. 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…

  3. Cancelled PO Line Printing

    When printing a PO with cancelled line or lines, the presentation is misleading and might cause an error on the vendor side. As we know Elliott print Cncl literal on cancelled lines but shows the quantity and the line total amount. The lines are not added to the total but I don't think its is enough, After cancelling the line, user cant even access field 19 and enter a comment. I think that the qty should be presented as 0 and the total line as zero. This is an old Macola behavior that we lived with and maybe it is…

  4. Order Import - add an option to move a GOOD file to a folder

    When doing Order Import, Netcellent introduced new flags, 26 and 27 that handles the move of a file with errors to a different folder, this is a good feature. For good files. Elliott deletes the import file. My understanding from a conversation with Mark is that this logic of NOT archiving the import file is because of the assumption that the file already created in an EDI system and exists there. But if the import is NOT from EDI (maybe the partner created it in the required format), forcing the user to save it in 2 places is an extra…

  5. Support Location, Product Category and Customer Type to Determine Sales and COGS

    Currently, Elliott allow defining sales and COGS account by location and product category. We are facing with the following complaints:
    (1) User only want to define sales account by product category, not by location. Because of the fix structure, user will have to define all combination of locations and product categories which is a burden.
    (2) Sometime user may miss a combination, as a result the sales and COGS go to the default account causing reconciliation problem. System should make it easier to find potential missing setup problem.
    (3) Some users want to define sales and COGS account by customer…

  6. Defer processing - Using it with system period control and system Date

    Being able to select Starting and Ending date in deferred processing would be a nice tool to have as it is
    Pre-defined. The accounting department runs the same reports every month and only the starting and ending
    Dates change. Does or can this feature be added easily? Also the option of running a report using the system date in
    Deferred processing would be helpful.

  7. Allow to use wild card file name and multiple path when attaching documents in Elliott Post Office

    Elliott allows to use a variable on the Attach... field when sending a Post Office email. For example the variable InvNo will automatically attach a document with the invoice number as the file name. This is NICE. I suggest to allow multiple path in case the documents are in different folders and to allow wildcard. So instead of $InvNo$.pdf I can define $InvNo$*.*. For example if the invoice number is 123456, Elliott will attach 123456.DOC, 123456A.PDF etc. In addition user should be able to define different path so it can be something like M:\ELLIOTT8\DOC1\$InvNo$*.*, M:\ELLIOTT8\DOC2\$InvNo$*.*,M:\ELLIOTT8\DOC3\$InvNo$*.*. In this example, Elliott will…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Show non-inventory items on picking list by bills

    When printing a picking list by bill it does not show non-inventory tracked items. I need the non-inventory items that are a part of produc t structures to show up on picking list by bills.

  11. Item Generic Search to Show Item Quantity Greater than Zero Only

    It is suggested that in item generic search, we have the option to show item quantity per global setup. It is suggested that, we need to allow user to press a flag that only show those item quantity is greater than zero so customer service rep can focus on those item that we have on-stock.

    Currently, the bottom line of the item generic search can as following:
    Up, Dn, PgDn, PgUp, F4=Detail
    Up, Dn, PgDn, PgUp, RETURN To Select
    Up, Dn, PgDn, PgUp, F4=Detail F5=Wish List
    Up, Dn, PgDn, PgUp, F1/F2=Next/Prev Loc F3=Setup F4=Detail
    Up Dn PgUp/Dn F1/F2=Next/Prev Loc F3=Setup…

  13. Balance Sheet Net Income from Last Year - Fix Temporary Year End Out of Balance Issue

    For users who do temporary year end, from the time of temporary year end to the final year end, the General Ledger Balance Sheet will be out of balance.

    This is because the Balance Sheet Net Income (BSNI) only calculate the number from this year once you do a temporary year end. In the mean time, the detail transaction for last year is still there because final year end is not done.

    It has been suggested, that we can introduce another financial statement layout code:
    LYNI = Last Year Net Income
    This is similar to BSNI. But LYNI only reflect…

  14. A Report Can Defer That Shows Elliott Users & Optional Email Them

    User should log out of Elliott at night time to avoid problems next day. this is especially an issue at Terminal Server environment. Therefore, it is suggested that we should develop a report for user list that can be run in defer processing. The report can also optionally email to the users that are still in Elliott if their email address is available.

    Let us know if you think such a report is valuable.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. wild card search

    It would be very beneficial to have a wild card search. Example: When searching in inventory we only have the benefits of searching the beginning of the description, part number, substitute item,etc. It would be very helpful to put a word in and have it search all of the descriptions and item numbers and show all items that have the same string of characters wherever they happen to be.

  18. 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.

  19. 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?

  20. Attribute heading tied to the customer file

    Currently, when we view the heading of an attribute tied to the customer, it is only showing the customer name, but not the customer number. If you were to view an attribute tied to an item, it shows the item number. We would like to see the customer number in the heading of the attribute, if possible.
