  1. Is there a way to designate different expense accounts for different pay expense account for sick, vacation, FUTA, SUTA?

    When running payroll only one expense account is the default for sick, vacation, FUTA, SUTA, FICA. Is it possible to assign different expense accounts depending on the employee type so for example office salaries verses warehouse hourly employees are coded with differing wage expense account and corresponding tax accounts for profit center accounting. Right now I am doing a manual adjustment while running payroll for wage accounts in time transaction processing. Then at the end of the month I am manually figuring out how much tax for certain employee types need to be journaled to the correct corresponding tax account.

  2. Access Customer File & Ship-To file Econtacts based on Ship-to Selections in Econtact Processor

    In Econtact Processor, it would be great to select Customer File and Ship-To file Econtacts together based on selections made on the ship-to level. Most econtacts are associated with the Customer File, not the Ship-To file.

    One example would be to select all Customer File and Ship-To File Econtacts that have a Ship-To location with a certain attribute on the account. Or select all Customer / Ship-To File Econtacts that have ship-to's in a specific state.

    This would create a more comprehensive email address list to send messages to.

  4. Create number of Shipping Labels based on Customer Item pack size

    When creating shipping labels, the number of labels created should first look at the customer item pack size and then default to the item file pack size. If there's a shipment for 20, with the item pack size being 4 and customer pack size being 10, we want 2 labels to print, not 5.

  5. Customer Item Lookup

    Customer Order entry is already supported with Customer Item Lookups by Customer Item and Customer Description. This is the only place where a customer item can be entered to determine what the Elliott Item number is.

    It would be beneficial to have this same ability in sales desk as well as in CUSTOMER ITEM FILE MAINTENANCE --> CHANGE.
    An INQUIRY Feature in CUSTOMER ITEM FILE MAINTENANCE would also be helpful so that users without permissions for change still have access to the lookup.

  7. GL Interface Out of Balance Error Fix

    When "POSTING INVOICES TO AR" AR from COP while at the same time running GL "INTERFACE FROM AR" it can result in an out of Balance Error in the Interface. BTRIEVE should prevent this from happening. If not BTRIEVE we need another way to prevent these processes from being run simultaneously.

  8. Recover from "Unable to Read your Users record (9/068)" Error Automatically

    If a user's computer crashes or their session ends unexpectedly while they are in Elliott they could receive the error "Unable to Read your Users record (9/068). You cannot use Elliott until this is resolved." when they try to log back in.

    As far as we know, there is no way for the user to help their situation. If no one with elevated privileges is available to use the PSQL Monitor to delete their invalid user sessions, the user cannot work.

    There should be an automatic way for the system to recover from these errors or some process the user…

  9. 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.

  11. Purge Posted Orders by Customer and Date Range

    Purge Customer Order by Customer and Date Range...
    Currently sales orders can only be purged by a THRU date (ending date). By changing the date to a range and adding a customer range we could delete orders specific to a customer and to a specific time while retaining the orders for other customers. This would come in handy when you have many EDI orders for a specific customer.

  12. Move Landed Cost Calculation report to show in PO

    Although the Landed cost calculation report is run from the PO module, it is currently grouped with the IM reports in the Spool manager. I suggest that the report should be renamed to that it is listed with the PO reports.

    Purchase Unit of Measure by Item Vendor File Maintenance:
    Currently we can purchase an item with a different unit of measure from the stocking U of M by utilizing field 12 fo the item Master File.

    However all possible vendors for the same item do not sell in the same U of M. (ie Stock by Yard, Purchase by Yard or Meter).

    Since we already have a ITEM VENDOR FILE MAINTENACE could we add a Vendor U of M and a Purch to Stock Ratio filed that would be referenced when creating and receiving a PO the same way it…

  15. Stock Status Inquiry F5 function visibility

    In the newest update a split screen option was added to both the vendor inquiry and vendor file search fields. Is it possible to have this option for the stock status history (F5) screen so you can preview the details of each package name (PO,BM,CP etc.) without having to select each one?

  16. 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…

  17. Allow Re-Sequence a Routing

    Elliott Work Order Plus allows user to change the Operation ID but if user wants to re-sequence a routing a manual change for each operation id is required (from the last operation going back). Elliott should allow a re-sequence similar to the BOM Product structure. Thanks, Avi.

  18. Prevent Two Conflict Defer Processings Running at The Same Time

    It is well known that if user run defer processing on two different workstations at the same time can cause problem. The following knowledgebase article show this may cause error 80: http://support.elliott.com/knowledgebase/articles/814293-btrieve-error-80-during-defer-processing. The type of error is not limit to Error 80. It can also be error 25. Another recent support incident shows that this cause quantity allocation double due to running reset quantity allocation at the same time on two different machine through defer. So running defer processing at the same time on different workstations is very problematic.

    Elliott does not prevent two Defer Processing tasks from running…

  20. Enter Salesman 2 and 3 with 0% (Zero Percent)

    In order entry or sales desk, currently Elliott systems allow up to 3 salesman. Each salesman will need to have a percentage split with total 3 salesman percentage add up to 100%.

    In some situations, it may be desirable to enter salesman 1 with 100% and salesman 2 and 3 with 0% for referencing purpose. In many cases, the commission needs to be handled outside of Elliott. As long as the system can provide the reference of all salesman on the order, the information can then be retrieve by tools like Crystal Report.

    Let us know if this is something…
