  1. Add Product Category and Item Material Type to Item Audit Trail

    The Item Product Category and Item Material Cost type are very important and as we know the values effect the GL on the revenues, COGS and Inventory Asset accounts. I suggest to add these fields to the audit trail. An example is a change on the Material type that changes the Stock status by GL account file without changing the GL.

  2. Direct Ship Orders

    Our business model is 90% direct ship orders. Right now there is no correlation between the Sales Order and the Purchase Order number which is causing us lots of issues due to the volume of orders we take. I've been told there is nothing on the table to assist with this. One idea given to me is to use the job # field for both the Sales/Purchase Order for a stop gap. That is great, but I have to run a report on the PO side in order to find the Job#. I'd like to be able to query the…

  3. Partially Received Purchase Order Utility

    Currently when receiving a partial shipment against a purchase order we are able to record the receipt and the PO inquiry shows the original order and received quantity correctly. This creates a "back order" quantity due on the PO. Item quantities on order fields show the back orders still open as long as the PO is not closed during receiving.

    Reprinting the PO shows the original item Quantity and extends the amounts based on the original quantity.

    It would be helpful to have a utility to reprint partially received POs showing the back order quantity and the new item extensions.…

  4. Send a warning before saving a change of an econtact's email

    We had the following situation on a customer site:
    1. User intended to add a "faked" email address. This adress is added to customers that do not want to receive an email for the invoice and do not need a printed invoice. (a hard copy of the invoice is delivered and when running duplicate invoice (after posting), it is not necessary to get a hard copy or an email). This is a valid process.
    2. After adding the faked email econtct, user changed the email address to one of the real emails of this customers. This was a mistake.

  5. Available to Promise Period Summary - Menu choice for inventory class

    When using ATP period summary report
    It would be nice to see a menu option where you can select
    inventory class

    This ways clients could focus on there A, B and C inventory classes to see if they are hitting their inventory turns on a specific class.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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?

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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).

    Is it possible to Exclude Categories in production Schedule Report

    I believe it allows for 5 categories to be excluded.

  16. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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…
