  1. Limit access to Mass Replace function

    We seem to have a need to limit access to the "Mass Replace" function in the Bills of Material / Maintenance / Product Structure. Would be nice if there was a global security option to at least have a warning show up to notify operator something like "Supervisor Permission is Required to Proceed With Mass Replace"

  2. 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.

  3. Check If Valid PO Number Entered for EDI Trading Partner

    If a customer has an EDI Partner profile setup, general speaking, they would (1) need a valid PO number; (2) need the PO number be less than 22 digits because that's standard EDI limit.

    For (1), we should setup a flag in EDI trading partner profile to indicate whether PO number is required or not. For (2), it is safe to assume that if the EDI trading partner profile is setup for the customer, then the PO length should not exceed 22 digits. Currently, Elliott allow 25 digits PO number.

    The implementation should apply to the following areas: (a) COP…

  4. 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.…

  5. F4 - Showing Purchase order Revision level on ATP drill down

    In the ATP inquiry section when drilling down to a purchase order it would
    be nice to see the F4 revision level (like under purchase order inquiry).
    Going further it would be nice that it would automatically go the the specific part number based on the part number you are working with to
    save time.

  6. Send a warning before saving a change of an econtact's email

    We had the following situation on a customer site:
    1. User intended to add a "faked" email address. This adress is added to customers that do not want to receive an email for the invoice and do not need a printed invoice. (a hard copy of the invoice is delivered and when running duplicate invoice (after posting), it is not necessary to get a hard copy or an email). This is a valid process.
    2. After adding the faked email econtct, user changed the email address to one of the real emails of this customers. This was a mistake.

  7. Allow Print One Invoice to Print Duplicate Invoices for Order Not Posted

    There is no elegant way to print a duplicate invoice for an order that is not yet posted. Printers sometimes have issues or some other printing errors can occur while printing an invoice. Bad toner, bad printout, etc... If the invoice does not physically print there are only 2 options to get the invoice printed that I know of.

    1. Print a duplicate invoice using Print Invoices. This can be done, but will also lock all users from printing invoices if the user does not complete the task quickly enough. This options is not good for users not skilled in…

  8. Add Wish List Access to Order Entry

    In the Order Entry Item Search menu, add the ability to access and maintain the customer's Wish List. You can then select an item in their Wish List and it enters it for you to begin entering the line item.

  9. COP Pick Ticket - Default Line Item Promise date Cut Off Option

    When Printing a Pick Ticker Field 4 is defaulted to the current date. We all understand the reason for that. Some companies would like to default to 12/31/30 (similar to the Billing option), so ALL Pick tickets are printed. I suggest to add an option similar to the Global Setup, COP Function Order Billing Field 12 to the Global Setup, Pick/Pack Ticket/Ship Label screen.

  10. 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
    inventory class

    This ways clients could focus on there A, B and C inventory classes to see if they are hitting their inventory turns on a specific class.

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  13. Option to Supress Total Weight When Print Packing List

    Currently, when print packing list, the total weight is always printed at the the bottom of the packing list like:
    TTL WEIGHT - 999,999.999
    It has been suggested by some users that the total weight in Elliott is not necessary correct due to various reasons. Therefore, it would be desirable if the packing list does not print total weight. We could potentially introduce a global setup flag for this purpose. If we should make this change, this flag should apply to both regular packing list, as well as packing list by box.

    Please let us know how do you feel…

  14. Support Phantom Locking with Item and Customer Change

    Currently, most of the locking conflicts in Elliott come from user going to item or customer file maintenance change mode. User keep the change record on the screen without releasing it. This can happen when the user is interrupt with a phone call, or has to take a break. This however, causing extensive locking for other users who need to update the item or customer record and wait have to wait in the locking loop until this record is released.

    It is suggested that we should consider implementing phantom locking on Item and Customer in the change mode to avoid…

  15. Allow Deferred Processing for Post Office

    Scheduling Post Office activities will be an excellent tool. For example, running the Printing Order Acknowledgement with Post Office every hour automatically using the Deferred Processing. Now it has to be done manually. When having intensive order entry operation, printing / emailing an immediate order acknowledgement slows down the operation and this has to be done in batch mode.

  16. Support Check Reference in AP Manual Check Processing or AP Account Inquiry

    Like the voucher reference, it would be nice if we can support check reference for check record in AP Open Item file. Users can store wire transaction ID or other pertinent information in check reference. Giving the fact that more an more payments are done electronically, it is important to give user a way to record the reference information since there's really no check number in that case.

    Suggest to allow users to indicate the check reference in manual check processing. The check reference information should show on A/P Account (& Summary) Inquiry. Give user the ability to edit the…

  18. Purge Utility for SYACTLOG (System Activity Log) Table

    SYACTLOG (System Activity Log) table contains the following kind of data:
    * Elliott Users Login
    * Web (Web Services) eContact Login
    * Email Activities
    * Credit Card Charges
    * Print Activities
    * Other activities
    This table tend to become very big and make it difficult to retrieve data. Currently, system does not have a purge utility for this table. It is suggested that we should provide a utility to allow users to purge this table for certain type of activities with cut-off date.

  19. 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?

  20. Email Locking Event to Offending User

    Currently, Elliott allow subscribing a management event by going to Global Setup, Press Detail Event button, and F5 key to insert the LCKEVENT - Record Lock Triggered Per Min. When a record lock over one minute is taking place, this event email can be sent to a specific person, like the admin of the organization.

    It is suggested that this email should be sent to the offending user (the user who create the locking condition in the first place). The issue we had was that we know the offending user Windows login, but we do not know the Elliott corresponding…
