  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. PO Inquiry Function Key to Go Back Page

    In the PO Inquiry screen, F1 allows you to go to next screen but there is not an F2 (or other option) to go BACK to prior page. This would be helpful when searching records.

  8. 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.

  9. Allow Printing of Zero ($0) Dollars Check to Close Voucher & Credit Memo

    A scenario was brought up that in AP module, there's a voucher of $10,000 and a credit memo of $10,000 for a vendor. We currently does not have activities with this vendor. But we like to close out these two transaction so they don't show as open. It is suggested that if we select these two transactions for payment. The total payment amount would be zero. We currently do not allow printing AP check of $0 for a vendor. We should consider lift this restriction. So once the check is printed and posted, the voucher and credit memo will both…

  11. 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.

  12. Label printing option in put-away screen

    Is it possible to have a prompt or an option to print labels during the put-away process? Maybe a prompt that would say "Do you need a shelf label for this item" and have the default to N, but if "Y", print the label immediately; or an F2 function to print the label.

  13. Allow Salesman to get customer/order/invoice history of another Salesman.

    In the situations where salesman gets control of another salesman customers, the new salesman can't see the old salesman invoices. There might be a situation where the new salesman takes control only on opened orders I suggest to have 3 levels of global security:
    1. At Customer, Order and Invoice history. This is what currently Elliott supports. Salesman can see orders and invoices only if they match the Salesman on the customer file and the user security.
    2. At Customer/open order level only. In this case salesman can see opened orders belong to the customer even if the salesman is…

  14. Check Reconciliation Enhancement - Allow upload of Check Numbers

    In AP Check Reconciliation, allow users to upload a CSV file with check numbers and amounts instead of hand keying in all checks.

    The F1 next check feature is useful, but it still requires a lot of looking back and forth between the Elliott screen and another source of data. In most cases, it is faster to enter the check numbers individually than use it.

    Most banks offer a download of the check statement, which can easily be formatted to upload into Elliott. This would save a lot of data entry time.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.…

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
