  1. Allow to enter up to 3 SLM on a customer file

    We would like the ability to add up to 3 salesmen with a percentage on the customer file so the user doesn't have to enter it every time on Order Entry.

  2. QR Code capabilities.

    Be able to print and use QR codes in all forms and on items were bar codes are currently being used. Pretty sure it scanners can relay information from a QR to Elliott but would like to have the ability to use barcodes or QR codes.
    Couple reasons for this is: 1) we have small items and the QR code works better for labeling than bar code. 2) QR code can hold much more data than bar codes.

  3. Bring Item Note Even if Field 4 on Global Setup is L

    The user needs this feature to see Item Notes while creating an order. Currently if the Note Global setup is L in field 4, the item notes are not copied and the user cannot see them. User must open another window to see the Notes of the Item. I think this should be the setup or at least have an option to do that. I in field 4 is not a good solution because user wants to add Order Line Notes and not keep them on the Item permanently.

  4. Change F8 Customer Search to find by the Sort Name and Corresp Name

    When using the F8 Customer Search By Name, it would be great if it searched both the Sort Name and Corresp Name at the same time. That way, it will find the account you are looking for using either. I am not sure how the index is created to perform the search, but when building it you could exclude any Corresp Names in the index that are exactly like the Sort Name. That way, it would limit the amount of duplicate accounts that show up in the result window. Having this ability would take some confusion out of finding accounts,…

  5. COP Order Entry Line - Allow to see stock status in all locations.

    Currently in COP, Order Entry, Line Item screen when user is in field 2 - Qty Order, there is an option to use F3 - stock status, but the Stock status is ONLY for the order location. I suggest to add F4 to show Stock status in all locations. This can help the order entry person to make a decision about centering the quantity. Maybe a Global setup option can be either F4 for stock status for all locations should be presented in case companies don't want to show other locations.

  7. Save Customer or Item Record When Change Page

    The new phantom locking feature does not lock customer or item in customer or item file change mode. Since both customer and item has 3 pages of data, sometime a user may change a field on the first screen, and go to second screen to change something further, the record do not get saved until past the 3rd page. If there's a conflict, many changes to the record may be lost. It would be nice if the system can save the record as user change from page to page, without waiting to the end. This way, if there's a conflict,…

  8. Change Owner of Tracking Note Instead of Deleting It

    This idea is to have the Invoice Post change the owner of the tracking note instead of deleting it or leaving it as a tracking note in the Order Header. The note would still be created for the invoice with the owner STARSHIP so it retains the tracking number lookup, but the note attached to the Order Header would change the owner to the user posting invoices if the invoice is partially posted (backorders exist). This would retain the tracking number, but the order would need a new tracking note to meet the Tracking Number Required criteria.

  9. Customer Favorite Items

    Elliott currently supports Wish List items, which are items that customers would like to buy but cannot for some reason at the moment the item is added to the wish list. Its a great reminder system to build sales.

    The support for favorite items should also be added. Favorite items are basically a list of items the dealers likes to order. The process to add an item to a dealer's favorite list could be handled in sales desk similar to the wish list items. Any active item could be added to a favorite list.

    Users should be able to view…

  10. Allow print bill of material with only item number, first line description, quantity, unit. No flags

    We use a 3rd party report writer to create written copies of the bills of materials to be used in the operation manuals for our machinery. these are saved as PDF files and entered using Adobe. We only show the Item Number, first line description, quantity used, and unit type (ie. EA, FT, SET etc.). It would be helpful to have the capability to print this straight out of Elliott. I have attached a page of one of our manuals for an example.

  11. Purge spooled reports automatically

    There are some functions that generate spooled reports that don't need to be archived and stored forever. Could you create an option for whether or not to auto-archive reports; or maybe even mark specific reports for deletion after a specified time period?

  12. Show Net Unit Price on Ack and Quote

    Provide a method to show Net Unit Price, instead of Unit Price and Discount %, on the COP Order acknowledgement and quote. With that, we could discontinue using the DYO forms and thus leverage the pfdPostOffice functionality.

    A potential solution is to go to Global Setup → COP-Func → Order Line Item Screen → 14. Is Unit Price Before Discount Percent? The default value is “Y”. If you set the flag to “N”, then during order entry when the line item is added, the unit price will apply the order/customer discount percent and the line item discount percent will become zero. This way, the line item unit price is the net unit price. If you want to get the discount percent, it is stored in order header.

  13. Add Discount of Dollar amount per unit sold in AR Terms Code

    Add Discount by dollars/cents per unit sold in AR Terms Code. There is a discount by percent, but not $/unit.

  14. Add a "check form" to pdf post office for use as remittance advice for ACH payments.

    This is the only thing I need to automate AP ACH to make it more efficient than printing and mailing checks. I use the vendor type field to identify suppliers set up for ACH, which shows up on the pre-check register, and do separate "check runs". The rest is template driven with the bank.

  17. Purchase Order Receiving should default fields 11, 12 & 13 to what was entered in the first receiving line

    We currently fill in Fields 11, 12 and 13 (Vessel #, Receiver, and Inv/Doc) when we receive the first line item of a PO which is fine. However subsequent receivings for additional line items on the same PO must also be keyed in. Receiving could be much faster if those fields default to the same data used in the first receiving line.

    (1) We suggest you to look at PO -> Processing -> Warehouse Receiving Process.  Advised if that will work for you. Warehouse Receiving Import is designed to have an easier user interface than legacy receiving;  (2) If you can use warehouse receiving process, then you can also look at PO -> Utility -> Warehouse Recv Import.


    Please advise if warehouse receiving does not work for you and why. Thank you

  18. Allow to run Coasted BOM with no output

    When running the Coasted BOM as Deferred Processing (Probabely with the option to update the cost) an email cannot be sent because of the size of the output. Adding an option on the report parameters not to print the details and replace the report with a message "Coasted BOM was completed" will resolve the issue. Another alternative is to change the email option under the Deferred Processing and allow not to send an attachment,

  19. Create Inventory Transactions Audit Trail CSV when in on-line mode

    Elliott allows to create a csv of the inventory transactions audit trail which is excellent, but allows that only when using a batch mode. I suggest to do it in on-line mode as well. The majority of the customers are in batch mode but there are still users that are in on-line mode.

    Netcellent made a decision long time ago that we will phase out real-time inventory transaction processing in favor of batch. But we still keep the real-time method for backward compatibility. Therefore, we had been advising our users to switch from real-time mode to batch mode inventory transaction processing. Same principle applies to PO receiving. Over the years, all new features improvement are added to the batch mode processing only. For this reason, this suggestion does not fit our direction.

  20. Add A/P Type "Deposit"

    Add a Voucher Type "D" for Deposit. User should be able to use the Deposit balance to pay future purchase. The current procedure of debiting an asset deposit account and use it later causes confusion and mistakes. I can discuss the details of the process with Roger.

    I think we had made some changes on AP credit memo. Specifically, we allow AP credit memo to use multiple times and can be used as the “Deposit” purpose. See the following KB article:
    https://support.elliott.com/knowledgebase/articles/1965881-feature-support-ap-partial-payment-for-negative

    Will you discus with Roger. If you still think Credit memo will not do it and Roger agree with you, then we can discuss further.
