  1. Mass Backorder Trial Fill

    Would it be possible to change the Cut-off Date to be more of a
    flexible item for deferred processing?
    It would be nice to offer system date as an option or possibly
    system date + "x" number of days

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Note Pop Up

    Add a feature where a Note Type could be defined to automatically open in front of the Notes application. Would be best if positioned so the list of notes is somewhat visible.

  6. Allow Product Structure Change Import

    For us, we run into a scenario where a manager may need to go in and preform data hygiene maintenance.

    Maintaining certain order of components by sequence, adding a user defined note to components, removing old components and replacing them with new components, and changing the qty of a component required for each parent item (after analysis shows it is used more heavily or lightly), etc.

    If there are many items, this is very difficult.

    Is there a way to add a CSV import to allow a user to make many changes to all item's product structures? (For example: the…

  7. Allow user to change all lines promised dates from the header screen

    I suggest to allow user to change ALL lines promised dates from the header screen. We have a similar functionality in PO and receiving. With the current business situation, cash flow is critical to watch. If Promised date is not correct, it will cause a financial problem. Changing orders with 50 - 80 lines is not easy. We can add a prompt if user changes the Ship Date on the COP Order Header. A global setup as "Prompt?" will be nice.

  8. Allow to present "Calculated Discount" on an invoice

    In the case of a discount on an order where the discount is a result of a price code, Elliott doesn't show the discount on the line or the invoice. I suggest to have the option to show these discounts. I am not sure if this should be a setup (as Show Line Discounts B=Both calculated and actual, L=Only Line Discount). If we create a new field on the invoice form, it might be difficult to present.

  9. Flag to allow blank INV/DOC# during warehouse receipt - Y or N

    This could be a separate flag or if combined with Validate INV/DOC# set Y during warehouse receiving provide a warning if a blank is entered.

    I believe INV/DOC# is already required if you turn on PO Invoice Processing feature. We have to if you want to use that feature. We have to understand your point of view on why it is necessary to allow blank instead of just enter anything to by pass. Does it mean you don’t have either INV/DOC# most of the time? Does it means you don’t really use PO Invoice Processing feature? If that is the case, you should not turn on PO Invoice Processing feature in the first place.

  10. I/M Copy Extra Item data to be optional in Global Setup

    Currently when copying an item in Item Maintenance --> Change --> F3 the system automatically copies the extra item data. This often results in erroneous information being copied to the new item.

    There should be an option in Global setup similar to the options to copy Notes, Attributes and links to allow the user to decide if the EXTRA ITEM DATA should be copied.

  11. Security Setup option to change order regardless Pick Ticket Printed status

    On the Global and User security, options 3 - 7 on screen 3, nicely control the user ability to add,and delete order and credit memo in COP but for change the control is only if Pick Ticket was printed. If you want to have the option NOT to allow a change, regardless the Pick Ticket status, it is impossible. For companies that do not print Pick ticket immediately, want to allow order entry (for Edit List or Print Acknowledgements) but not to allow a change of the order, it is a problem.

  12. CPORDOPT/BMOPTFIL/IMKITFIL - expand QTY field size

    CPORDOPT/BMOPTFIL/IMKITFIL - expand QTY field size

    Expand qty field size in CPORDOPT/BMOPTFIL/IMKITFIL so they are consistent with qty field size in CPORDLIN.

    Adjust UI to reflect.

    This requires a database change. This request should be made in the comment section under the Elliott V9 Changes Summary and Detail posting.

    The quantity field in these tables is the quantity per parent field. This type of change would affect more than the three tables that are listed in this request. An enlargement to the quantity per parent field would affect the Product Structure file (BMPRSTR) as well as all of the corresponding production tables, engineering change tables, ATP, order invoice history, etc.

    Woody, can you provide an example of where you require more than 9999 components per parent?

  14. 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,…

  15. Multiple 'Print to Screen' reports open - hard to figure out which is which

    Our engineers and others sometimes have multiple 'Print to Screen' reports open at one time for viewing purposes. If they are minimized at the bottom of the computer screen it is really hard to determine which report is which. Much trial and error to find the one you need at the time. You only have the file name created by Elliott as a reference to try and find it. If it is a Bill of Material, it would be nice to have the Item Number for the bill appear on the file name. Same issue with multiple 'Print to Screen'…

  16. Add "Pricing Category" to drive price calculation separate from "Product Category"

    Sales/Cost of Sales account structure isn't always consistent with pricing strategies, and vice versa. Having a single Product Category that drives both (Sales/Cost of Sales Accounts AND Price Codes) sometimes creates scenarios where you must create redundant Product Categories (and subsequent Prod Cat/Location entries) OR must create redundant Price Code entries.

    It would be nice if those two purposes could be split - leaving the traditional Product Category to drive Sales/Cost of Sales and establish a "Pricing Category" for reference in Price Code maintenance and subsequent price calculation.

    This would afford the greatest flexibility and ease of maintenance in environments…

  18. Allow an A Trx for Lot Item

    Elliott doesn't allow an A (Adjust) trx for a Lot Item. This is done for the obvious reason of keeping the integrity between the Qty OH on the Item Master / Inventory Location and the Lot qty. But as we know there are situations that this is not the case. Elliott allows L transactions that allows to adjust ONLY the Lot. I suggest to allow A transactions (with a warning or Global setup right).

  19. Default the amount on CC for PreA orders when doing billing to the Invoice total amount

    When doing Billing for a PreA order on the payment window, user has to enter the total invoice amount. In most of the cases the amount is the total user amount so I don't see the reason to default to zero. For the cases user wants to be in full control and enters the amount, this can be a Global setup filed (Default to zero or Total invoice amount). Another option is to default to zero and have a F Key to use the total invoice amount as the amount. I saw situations where user entered the wrong amount instead…

    In many situations, the purpose of the pre-authorization is ensure the credit card is valid so it can be used for future charge. Use the $0 pre-authorization will ensure the transaction does not show up on card owner’s side as a pending transaction. This may be desirable since the goods is not shipped yet.

    If we default pre-authorization to order amount, then (1) Are we talking about qty-to-ship amount, or total order amount base on quantity order? (2) Do we have all the freight, misc. charge and sales tax figured out on the order. This can be a complicated subject with no good answer.

    Conclusion, default pre-authorization amount to $0 create no harm. So we think that is a good default position to take in this case.

  20. Item file import feature for ATP Period Summary

    Would it be possible to add the feature of an Item file import
    like what is available in Gross Requirements? This would allow
    a focused view of part numbers.

    This support is available through the “Inventory Report Writer” now. This is accessible from I/M → Reports → Reorder Advice/User Defined CSV. The ATP Summary can be replaced by “User Defined CSV”. Moving forward we will not expand the functionality of various ATP reports. Instead, we are going to expand and improve the “User Defined CSV” so you can create your own reports. In your case, we believe the “User Defined CSV” can already do what you want. If you need help with the “User Defined CSV” application, let us know.
