  1. Synchronizing Item Description On Open Orders When Description Changes

    Similar to how customer names synchronize to open orders when they are changed, we would love to see item descriptions have the same behavior. Occasionally, we have a large number of orders that are either in the warehouse or on back order and have the need to change the product description. This could be due to a change from a manufacturer once an item comes in or as simple as some information that is discovered to be wrong or has a typo on there. A prompt when changing the item description in Item File Maintenance asking if we would like…

  2. Purchase Order Receiving

    When receiving on a purchase order and it asks you if you're sure because qty is over ordered amount. Be able to put in a parameter such as 12% over, otherwise not ask. Or be able to shut off the warning all together. It's an industry standard on many items that it's ok to ship within 10% over of quantity ordered. Almost everything we receive is over so the warning really doesn't help. It would help better if we could set it up to show only at 12%. Then it would be a meaningful warning that would stop me from…

  5. F7 to ​show open and valid production orders to print

    F7 to show open and valid production orders to print

    It would be helpful to have the ability to “select valid” production order for printing
    (Fields #3/#4) instead of always hand typing or selecting a range of production numbers.

    1. Cash Account No
    2. Starting Check No
    3. Ending Check No

  7. Do Not Allow to Avoid AP Check if It Is Already Reconciled

    Currently, in Accounts Payable, Processing, Void Checks After Posting, system allow voiding an AP check even if that check is already reconciled.

    It is suggested that we should not allow this to happen. So we suggest to add the following Global Setup flag to AP Global Control:
    Allow Voiding Reconciled AP Check?
    The possible value is "Y" and "N". Default is "N". When a user try to void an AP check that has already been reconciled, system will now print proper error message in the void journal to indicate so without actually voiding it.

    If user had determine a mistake…

  8. GL Posting Audit Trail

    I suggest to add Audit trail on the user that posts GL Journal Entry. I would add the user to the GLTRXFIL and GLJNLHST. Both have room (21 and 20 characters). We already have the logic to do it in the Inventory Transaction Audit Trail. SOX Controls requires that. Public companies must have it and I see the benefit for non-public companies as well.

  10. Add an option to include The Fixed Cost Per Unit when calculating Landed Cost

    Currently on the Landed Cost Global setup field 7 has 2 options: Last Landed Cost and Landed Cost Factor. I suggest to add an option to include the Fixed Cost Per Item. If users chooses this option the system will calculate the Landed cost as FOB Cost * Landed Cost Factor + Fixed Cost Per Unit.

  11. viewing links in COP inquiry via Order number and Invoice number mode

    Would it be possible to consider showing the links for both Posted invoice and Order number inquiry mode?

    When speaking with a customer we tend to have the invoice number and would like to see the link for a BOL.

    Under the current system one must inquiry first the inv#, then write down the job#, go to said job no and then you can see the valid link
    For a BOL where it is stored.

    It would be nice if the links would show up in either inquiry by inv# or job#, and simply see the link.

  12. Change Reset Allocation & On Order to Net Change Adjustment

    Currently, the process to reset qty allocation and on order start the process by zero out all item and inventory location qty allocation and on order. Then it start to read the open orders to accumulate the qty allocation and order. Depend on users system, this process can take a few minutes to 10 minutes.

    During this period, the system is vulnerable if another user is creating orders to change allocation and on order. That is the reason why we suggest user to run reset allocation and on order at night time through defer processing. However, some users is having…

  13. CSV/ASCII File Import and Case Insensitive Issue in Elliott 8.5

    In Elliott 8.5, you can optionally convert your database to 8.5 format to support alphabetic document number. Of the conversion is Elliott now assume each field is case insensitive when search. While this improve the add-hoc search capability for Elliott database, but it may create a potential problem with CSV/ASCII File Import.

    For example, if you enter a customer number "A100" as "a100". In Elliott's user interface, we will convert the lower case "a" to upper case "A" automatically. However, in the CSV/ASCII import, if the source data is "a100", when system validate "a100", the result will come back to…

  16. Improve Inventory Transaction Audit Trail Report Performance If Selection by Date Range

    If user choose to print Inventory Transaction Audit Trail Report for All Items of a single date range, the report can for run a long time as if it is stuck. See attached example.

    General speaking, user will get good performance if they select for specific item number range. Running this report on PSQL server directly will be much faster. Also, purge older inventory trx audit trail records will also help to speed up the report. Netcellent recommend keeping inventory trx audit trail database for 3 years of history.

    It is suggested that Netcellent should optimize this report's performance even…

  17. Drill down to GL Source when doing GL Account Inquiry

    The idea is to save the necessary extra steps that are currently required if user wants to get the full journal of a GL entry. Now the user has exit the inquiry, go to Reports and run a Cross reference report with the Cross reference on the inquiry in order to see the full journal. With tis idea user will able to "scroll" yo the trx and then hit F key to get the drill down to the source. Maybe we should do it only for GL sources.

  18. Have no zero's print on Quarterly PR reports

    Qtrly PR reports include employees that have had no earnings. It doesn't matter if employee is checked active or inactive in the account. Where there is a bit of turnover in the factory, it makes the report much longer and they are needed on it.

  19. Use Plus or Minus for Yes or No in All Areas

    In Elliott, with a "Yes" or "No" type of question, user can use Plus "+" or Minus "-" sign to represent the "Yes" or "No". This is convenience for those people who prefer to use the numeric keypad.

    On the other hand, some of the fields have been enhanced to accept not only "Y" or "N" values, then the "+" or "-" key won't work as "Y" or "N". In the attached exampled, "Stock Status Report", field "8. Exclude Zero Qty Items?" It has the extra option of "A" (All) where "Y=Yes, N=No, A=Include Zero Qty OH With Alloc or…

  20. Option Not to Create Pegging File During ATP Regen

    In ATP Regen, the pegging file is to support the ATP inquiry drill down to pegging (F7 Key), or printing of pegging report. Pegging information may be valuable for planner. But most of the people do not use Pegging information.

    During ATP regen, it automatically regenerate pegging information and can be time consuming. If you do not use pegging data, then there should be an option to disable the regeneration of pegging. It is suggest that we add a flag in Global Setup -> System -> Available to Promise:
    38. Create Pegging Data During ATP Regen? Y/N
    Default "Y" to…
