  1. Add "Print on AP Check Stub" as a Notetype option or extended voucher reference

    Often the Reference field #15 in AP voucher creation is not long enough for all the information needed which results in having to add hand written details on a check stub.

    The suggestion is to
    1) either add a notetype option to print on check stubs so that a note can be added to a voucher, or

    2) Add an extended Reference field to the voucher which will automatically print on the checks.

  2. A/P due date when the invoice is dated 2/29/24

    Elliott is not correctly figuring the A/P due dates when the invoice is dated 2/29/24. It is figuring the due date as though the invoice was dated 3/1/24 so we would essentially pay a day late.

    After investigate further, this only happen on 2/29/24. If the invoice date is 2/28/24 or 3/1/24, it calculates correctly with consider the leap year. Therefore, this problem is only comes every 4 years and is off by one day. Therefore, this is not a critical issue at this moment.

    We are documenting this issue for now and may look into this issue in the…

  3. Payment Reference Information - PO Number Missing

    It occurs often that the PO Number is missing from the payment reference information.

    The reference field is in Elliott billing screen. While the default format of reference field is PO# + Order#, we support user to override the reference field in order billing screen. So let’s consider a scenario as following:

    1. When a sales order is first entered. There’s no PO#.
    2. User access the billing screen. The reference field is being populated as “PO# blank + Order# XXXXXX”.
    3. User later on change the PO# in the order header.
    4. User may or may not go to the billing screen again.…

  6. Add data fields to reorder advice/user defined csv

    Please add fields for current and prior periods to the reorder advice/user defined csv:
    quantity on hand, inventory dollar value, on order quantity, on order dollar value
    It is visible in item file trx detail so I'm hoping it can be made available. This would be very helpful for purchasing reports.

  7. Do not allow to cancel a PO line that was received but not invoiced.

    I suggest to either send a warning or do not allow to cancel a PO line that was already received but not invoiced. Invoicing process should be completed first.

  8. Force Log Out & Lock Out users in Elliott

    It would be nice to have a standard utility added under System Utilities>User List (USERLOG). Where we can

    1. Force log out a user. ( Manually log them out from the control center)
    2. Lock out log in to Elliott ( temporarily Deny Log in to the System )

    At the moment we only have

    Cancel - Close the Window
    History - Export Log in history of users to Excel
    Refresh - Refrsh the sessions - information on the screen

    Reason for Need :

    • Be able to avoid users logging in to Elliott during scheduled system patches, updates, upgrades and Backup-up
    • Be…

  9. Automatic logout Elliott at certain time at night

    A user asked the following "I am trying to crack down on the users that don’t log out because it is a real problem here. Most people have complied since my email reminder on Monday about being a good “Elliott citizen”, but I have three computers that aren’t assigned to anyone but rather placed around the production area for the production staff to clock in/out on work orders. Generally the supervisors leave about 5-10 minutes before employees because they arrived early to open up the shop and we are trying to avoid daily OT for them. So there is really…

    This project is not trivial. But we think it can be a useful features to prevent users open up files over night that cause backup issue. At the moment, we are placing this as a somewhat low priority item for 8.6.  So do not expect an update with this new feature in the near future. 


    We are evaluating it to allow users to set policy on a workstation by workstation basis for "Auto Logout Time" in Setup area.  You could set a workstation to, say, logout at 21:00 every night. The setting will be saved to local registry. Hence you need to set this up on a workstation by workstation basis unless you add group policy.

  10. Please add logging to track hold-trx activity

    Please add logging to track hold-trx activity or add separate permissions for access to add, change, delete - especially for other users' hold-trx.
    Some type of enhanced security would be beneficial in this area.

    We can add to SYACTLOG file by calling SYACTLOG. See sample codes in CP0305.CBL. This should be a warning condition. We suggest to update SYACTLOG as the followings:


    ACTLOG-DETAIL-FILE: CPORDHDR

    ACTLOG-REFERENCE-ID: ORDER-NO

    ACTLOG-TYPE: Order-Ship-To-Name

    ACTLOG-SOURCE: ELLIOTT (CP0101)

    ACTLOG-CLIENT: WorkstationID (ElliottUserID)

    ACTLOG-STATUS: Warning

    ACTLOG-CATEGORY: INCOMP2C

    ACTLOG-COMMENT: Change Incomplete Order Status to Complete

  12. Add a Trading Partner Flag to Prevent Adding Line Items to EDI Order

    In many situations, it can be problematic when user add line items to an existing EDI orders that come through the Sales Order import. This is because the line items can have attributes, sometimes notes that are needed to send back with the outgoing EDI document (e.g. 856, 810).

    On the other hand, in some exception scenario, certain trading partners may place phone orders and require to send 810 invoice EDI document.

    To handle this, we should add an EDI partner flag "Prevent Adding Line Items for EDI Orders?" The default is "Y". But with some EDI partners who place…

  13. Create an Invoice Line Item Posted Event

    It is suggested that we should create an invoice line item posted event with COP Sales Journal Posting as followings:
    Program: CP0305
    Type: Line Item Posted
    FileName: IMITMFIL
    Field 1: Item Number
    Field 2: Order#
    Field 3: Invoice#
    Field 4: Customer#
    Field 5: Location
    Field 6: Item Description 1 & 2
    Field 7: Product Category
    Field 8: Qty Order
    Field 9: Qty To Ship
    Field 10: Qty Back Order

    One example to use this event is user can choose to receive email when Qty Back Order > 0. This can serve as a back order report to remind planner for…

  14. Check if Work Order Operation Has Shortage Before Allowing to Close the Operation

    A user reported a scenario that they have been picking parts real time and creating shortage reports. However, they discovered that some of the work orders were getting closed without OP10 being complete. The allocation goes away but inventory isn't reduced for any short parts. In a perfect world they would be caught up with their inventory transactions, and user should check any shortage components before complete last operation.

    So it is suggested that Elliott should check if the work order operation has any shortage and stop the work order from close OP20 before OP10 parts are complete.

  15. Prevent Deleting Customer with History

    When you delete a customer, Elliott will prevent the deletion of that customer if records exist in AR open item. Since some Elliott users may choose to purge AR open items to AR open items history, so this protection will not work and customer can be accidentally deleted. In some case, a lot of notes and attributes for that customers are also deleted.

    It is suggested that we should have additional check:
    1. When check against AR open items, we also check against AR open items history.
    2. We should check COP open order if COP module is in used.…

  16. PO Inquiry Function Key to Go Back Page

  17. Pick ticket - kit items should include non-stocked components

    Currently, printed pick tickets for kit items exclude non-stocked components - resulting in orders being shipped incomplete.

    Would like to see pick ticket include non-stocked kit components.

    If we should make this change, a global setup flags will be needed in COP -Func -> Pick/Pack Ticket/Ship Label setup.  A flag like "51. Print None Stock Items on Pick Ticket?" will be introduced.  The default value should be "N' so the existing users will not be affected by this new feature.


    My thinking is this flag should apply to both the line items on pick ticket and kit components under the line item.  Do you agree?

  18. Show total Lot Quantities on Serial Lot Stock Status Report

    I think it will be nice to show the total quantity on the Serial Lot Stock status. It is helpful information. Also, it is easier to analyze the warning in case the total lot quantity is not the same as the stock status. In the case there is a warning that the Lot quantity is not the same as the stock status, show the stock status quantity.

  19. Provide Ability to Send Text Messages

    Some people respond better to text messages than emails. The ability for Elliott to post text messages (to a cell phone number) might be useful in the following scenarios:
    1. It could be used in two-step login verification in the future.
    2. The User List could be enhanced to manually send a text to a logged in user that you do not have the cell number for on your phone.
    3. An event could trigger a text to the subscriber's cell number, for example if a record is locked and preventing access.
    There may be other useful scenarios.

    At least…

  20. Reconcile Inventory received Not Invoice (Accrual) Account.

    Currently it is either extremely difficult or impossible to reconcile the received Not Invoice account. On the GL reference field Elliott displays D# followed by space and the receiving document number. Then another space "Itm#" and the item number. This is basically meaningless for reconciliation purpose. Users really dont care about the receiving document number. I suggest to replace the first 10 characters ("D# 123456 " With PO number (6 characters, "-" and the line number. We are losing the space before the "Itm#" literal but this is okay. This will allow easy reconciliation against the PO receiving Audit trail.…
