  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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  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. 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…

  6. Shipping Verification and Non-Stock items

    Shipping Verification will force non-stocked items into Box 1, regardless of what box is actually being filled.

    At Mercer Tool, there are many items purchased from an outside source, typically for one-off shipments - that would make no sense to set up as Stocked. Often these are custom made, and are shipped complete as soon as they arrive.

    However, since they are not set up as stocked, shipping verification doesn't work as planned, since all these items will go into Box 1 automatically. Often these items are heavy, and can not all be forced into the same box.

    Please consider…

  7. Allow Changes to a Printed Plus Work Order

    Currently, once a plus production work order is printed no other changes can be made to the work order. If production has not started, users could be able to add material to the work order or change operation information since no material has been issued and no labor has been reported. Also, if the production work order has been started but production has not been reported for the parent item, additional operations could be added to the work order or work order operations that have not been started could be changed.

  8. List Screen Numbers and Field numbers when providing Upgrades

    It is certainly beneficial that when providing upgrade instructions you already list the Global Default Security settings that need to be addressed.

    However locating the appropriate Screen and Field numbers for these settings can be tedious. It would help if we were provided with the Screen and field numbers for each of the settings within the setup instructions instead of just making them a bullet (o).

  9. Exclude Categories in production Schedule Report

    Is it possible to Exclude Categories in production Schedule Report
    like the feature in the Customer Delivery Performance Report?
    I believe it allows for 5 categories to be excluded.

  10. Shipping Confirmation Lot Processing, assign a lot to a new line created by the system

    When doing shipping confirmation with a lot item, and Elliott suggest to add a line because there is not enough quantity in a selected lot, the NEW line is NOT available to be selected with additional lot. I understand the reason as the new line was not part of the original lines marked as selected (with X). The fix for this situation is pretty easy (Cybermac did it for PolyGel and will be glad to share with Netcellent). Otherwise user has to exit the selection and come back in order to select the new line.

  11. 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.

  12. Do Not Print Line Items on Pick Ticket If Order Is To Be Put on Hold

    In Global Setup -> Cop-Func -> Pick Ticket/Ship Label, there's a flag "38. Print Pick Ticket if Put on Hold ?" Some users set this flag to "Y" so the pick ticket hard code will still be printed. Even though there's a big warning message in "*" to ask picker not to ship, but sometime the order still get shipped anyway. Therefore, it is suggested that if the pick ticket is going to be printed when the order is to put on hold, do not print the line items on pick ticket. This way, we can prevent user from ignoring…

  13. 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…

  15. Is there a way to designate different expense accounts for different pay expense account for sick, vacation, FUTA, SUTA?

    When running payroll only one expense account is the default for sick, vacation, FUTA, SUTA, FICA. Is it possible to assign different expense accounts depending on the employee type so for example office salaries verses warehouse hourly employees are coded with differing wage expense account and corresponding tax accounts for profit center accounting. Right now I am doing a manual adjustment while running payroll for wage accounts in time transaction processing. Then at the end of the month I am manually figuring out how much tax for certain employee types need to be journaled to the correct corresponding tax account.

  16. 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.

  18. Create number of Shipping Labels based on Customer Item pack size

    When creating shipping labels, the number of labels created should first look at the customer item pack size and then default to the item file pack size. If there's a shipment for 20, with the item pack size being 4 and customer pack size being 10, we want 2 labels to print, not 5.

  19. Customer Item Lookup

    Customer Order entry is already supported with Customer Item Lookups by Customer Item and Customer Description. This is the only place where a customer item can be entered to determine what the Elliott Item number is.

    It would be beneficial to have this same ability in sales desk as well as in CUSTOMER ITEM FILE MAINTENANCE --> CHANGE.
    An INQUIRY Feature in CUSTOMER ITEM FILE MAINTENANCE would also be helpful so that users without permissions for change still have access to the lookup.
