  1. Sales Price Calc from Cost In Inventory (like COGS) NOT Just Last Cost

    Currently Sales price, if calculated by the system, is based off the Last Cost. This works, EXCEPT when the Last Cost is LESS than the cost of the items sitting in inventory, in which case you would be selling those old items at a loss! The current work around is a manual report to identify the items being purchased that are less than the previous cost and we then have to manually update the Last Cost. To allow the system to be totally mechanical when pricing, why can't the Selling Price be calculated off of the Cost in inventory? In…

    • Allow duplicate Invoice numbers if NOT the same vendor record.

      99% of our payouts do not have invoice numbers so up until we upgraded yesterday, we entered the date and as long as there were not multiple checks to one vendor, it worked just fine. It also allowed us to make sure that a bill wasn't paid twice because it needed a unique invoice number within the vendor record.

      With the new upgrade 6.3 you must have a unique invoice number for EVERY SINGLE VOUCHER we write. Prior to this it was only within a vendor that the invoices numbers needed to be unique.

      We are now having to put…

      • GL-Insert line in body of Journal Entry

        Would like the ability to insert journal entry lines in the body of the journal entry. Current functionality only allows for insertion at the bottom of the journal entry and not in the body.
        This would be very helpful with recurring entries and is common functionality with accounting application software.

        • It would be great to have a biometric approval instead of password for Point of Sale.

          It would be great if there were a biometric scanner for approval in different modules rather than having to key in passwords all the time.

          • Customer Special Pricing %

            It would be nice to be able to put a % discount instead of a static dollar discount amount in the customer special pricing area. As it stands now I have to manually change special pricing whenever there are price increases on those specific items.

            • Numerically Sort Inventory Kit Contents

              Many of our kits contain over 100 component numbers. In Denali 6.2xx the “IN Set Up Kits” component numbers are displayed in the order they were entered. It would be much easier to confirm whether or not the latest version of the kit was being used if the component numbers were displayed in numerical order. If they were numerically displayed it would be much easier to compare the CMS component numbers to the bill of materials from our CAD system. After a few revisions the numbers are just impossible to compare.

              • Payroll Employee lookup limited to active

                It would be more efficient if the lookup could be set to where it only brings up the active employees.

                • GL account inactivate

                  We need to inactivate GL Accounts. The field is in the table but i was told by Tech support it is there only for importing from the old Cougar system but it does nothing. We need to make sure users do NOT use the incorrect account but we have not ability to inactivate AND if there was a previous balance we cannot delete. This is just opening us to problems.

                  PLEASE allow inactivation to when entering it is not available but allow for printing of course if there was past balance it prints.

                  • We should be able to copy and paste into Purchase Orders.

                    Many other modules allow for copy and paste but Purchase Order does not. We should be able to do so in the Purchase Order when we have large part numbers to order.

                    • Provide more detail as to what Software Updates are fixing and what's new (Release notes).

                      Here are two great examples of how a software company provides details as to what is included in their software upgrades. They label what is new with the Release and what was Fixed in the release.
                      http://wiki.spiinc.com/wiki/ReleaseNotes:Orange_Windows/7.0.67 and https://www.fishbowlinventory.com/wiki/Release_Notes

                      Also, If the posted upgrade was added too, you should list the date. For example. Denail 6.2 was released 3/31/16 but since then it has been updated to release to 6.2.0.180. That date of the new release should also be listed on the website and WHAT was added/fixed.

                      • Auto-Populate Item No in POS

                        CMS Professional "auto-populated " item numbers in POS. This is still done in the PO module. For those items that don't have a bar code and an item has to be typed in this saves a lot of look up time, especially when very busy at the register. For example we sell fish, lizards, snakes, birds, etc. and they don't come with bar codes. There are a lot of bulk items also without bar codes. We have consistent naming within categories making the auto-populate feature very efficient.

                          • Create a link between sales and inventory using UDF for Country of Origin

                            We would like to be able to have the country of origin pull from the stock maintenance screen and automatically be put on the sales order for each item. When we have to ship to Canadian customers they require it.

                                  Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

                                  The “copy to” function works correctly in the current version.

                                  We have identified an error with the employee lookup in the “copy from” function that will be addressed in an upcoming release. A work-around for this is to manually type the employee code into the field, and the function works correctly.

                                • Employee PayRates - Should be a Table so you can create once

                                  Payrate Codes should be a table so the codes and Descriptions are created once and then you can select from list when entering Payrate Code. Current method is open to data entry error and a lot of extra data entry having to retype the description again and again. And you want to make sure we are consistent with the code names

                                  • payroll Process - using "NEXT" button

                                    The Check Date is entered when Preparing Payroll but when you are processing payroll when you come to "Check Register" the Dates should default to this Check number. Today you have to manually enter the check date. We should have to do this since we already have it entered.

                                    • Payroll Checks - Add Payrate Description to Crysal report

                                      We want to print the Payrate Description on our payroll stubs. The Payrate Codes are not descriptive enough. Can you please add Description to the Table so we can add to the pay stub

                                      • AP Do not allow Bill to Save if Duplicate Invoice number

                                        You are prompted when you POST that there are duplicate Invoice Numbers and you can't continue posting until it is fixed. This prompt is in the wrong place. Entering Bills and Posting are done by 2 different people. When entering bill and Saving the bill is when the user should be told there is a dup Invoice and Not allowed to save until fixed. The person entering should be the person told there is a duplicate Invoice

                                        • AR Do Not Allow duplicate Source Document on Save

                                          AR module - we where able to use the same source document number in 2 different transactions. Unlike AP module, we did not get a prompt when posting that the Source document was duplicated. This causes issues when paying because you cannot use 2 separate payment transactions if you have 2 charges for the same customer with the the duplicate Source document.
