Good morning Acumatica community! We are a very small business on the Acumatica scale so have to weigh cost at a premium. Our business has a large number of stock items that we work with (approximately 7k). While making adjustments to initial configurations, we are burning through a significant portion of our allocated ERP transactions each month and are currently at 90% for October.If we don’t upgrade to a higher tier but use more ERP transactions than our license covers, will we be charged after the fact? And if so, would it be cheaper for us to upgrade ahead of time knowing we will need the increase for two months only? Thank you,Julia
Is there any possibility to have one instance (one URL) that has two different tenants which have separate databases.Requirements include,1) Ability of having different databases for different tenants2) We have created one sandbox with two tenants. In this license we can have 100 concurrent users. We need to create an additional instance in this same sandbox environment for development work.Attached below is the structure of the configured sandbox, If there are any workarounds to this issue, or if you could give an explanation on how data is kept separate and identified in two different tenants that would be greatly appreciated.
Does anyone have an efficient way to grant a user view only access to the entire database?Thinking of an external auditor or a C-Level client, who wants to be able to poke around, but should not be able to create/modify/delete anything.Outside of creating a role and then clicking on every single form and saying view only.Hoping someone has come up with something more efficient!Thank you!
After login, the user only gets a spinning wheel and cannot access any screens to use the system.This issue was reported also for Google Chrome, version 76/77, and to proceed to work I had to set Disabled on Enable lazy frame loading (chrome://flags/). But this flag does not exist on the new version of Google Chrome.I mention that this issue I found on the Acumatica version 17.212.0020.
Dear partners and customers,We need your feedback on whether this suggestion makes sense to you. Currently, we have very flexible management of access rights for Wiki pages: We have an assumption that there is no real need to configure access to Wiki pages with this level of granularity. We observed a number of support cases where a Wiki page was not accessible to some users/roles due to misconfiguration. Typically, Wiki pages don’t contain any sensitive information that should be hidden from somebody in the system.So, we’d like to consider deprecating access rights management for Wiki pages, thus making them available to all users in the system by default.I’ve also created an Idea to vote for but decided to discuss it here as well to get your opinions faster. Any feedback would be much appreciated.
I need to know how to give someone rights/access to delete uploaded files.For example, we upload item drawings to the item’s BOM and when we have a new/revised drawing, we want to delete the old drawing and upload the new drawing.Where do I go to give someone permission to delete the file attachment???
Is there a way to connect a single scale, maybe two or three in time, to Devicehub without having to purchase "Automated Warehouse Operations"? It seems kind of silly that we can’t even connect one.Will we ever purchase "Automated Warehouse Operations"? Likely in time but we have a long way to go before getting into the Manufacturing and Warehousing aspects of Acumatica and we’d like to be utilizing this in Shipping now.Is there a compromise or work around anyone’s thought of that works? Thanks ;-)
Hello, I am attempting to set up Acumatica such that outbound emails are automatically processed (that is, I want them sent out every minutes). I have attempted to set up Automation Schedules both for the Emails Pending Processing Screen (SM.70.00.00) and Send and Receive Emails (SM.70.00.10). However, the emails are “stuck” in the Pending Process phase on SM.70.00.00 (manually processing them works just fine). I have a few questions regarding this: First, my understanding is that this is achieved through setting up an “Automation Schedule”, correct? Are there any other ways to achieve this? If so, which screen should the schedule be set up on, SM.70.00.00, SM.70.00.10 or both? Lastly, and the real prompt for my question, neither of the schedules I set up for SM.70.00.00 or SM.70.00.10 are firing (per SM205030). There are no errors, just no “last executed” values. The schedules are active, were set to “start” in the past (6/27/2021 and 6/28/2021), are a “Daily’ Schedule Type with an E
I am trying to install a new instance on my local machine of 21R2 and when trying to access the instance immediately after install, I get an “An item with the same key has already been added.” error message.I’ve tried two separate builds (first and latest) and get the same. Some of our other team members are using 21R2, but they all updated from 21R1 to get there. I guess I can go that route if needed, but I would prefer to get a new instance of 21R2. The stack trace follows below. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.Stack Trace: [ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added.] System.ThrowHelper.ThrowArgumentException(ExceptionResource resource) +60 System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.Insert(TKey key, TValue value, Boolean add) +14338200 System.Linq.Enumerable.ToDictionary(IEnumerable`1 source, Func`2 keySelector, Func`2 elementSelector, IEqualityComparer`1 comparer) +302 Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection.AspNetCoreServiceCollecti

Hi All, @Tim Rodman , I have setup a Multistep PO Approval where I cant get the second step to work. The first step is for two users to approve where I have used the “Collect All Approvals….” (Rule Actions\On Approval which works fine). If the PO is < $15,000 then it need not go further and can be approved.The second Step is where I am having the issue. I have read the documentation and applied the rules but am still having issues. Please see attached for setup.Any help appreciated.Cheers,Laura

DeviceHub - complete instructions for install and configuration, and using DeviceHub for FedEx labels
I am trying to help a customer with trying to get DeviceHub setup and eventually to get FedEx labels to print via DeviceHub.There are bits of information scattered in the community and on other Acumatica focused sites on the web. Acumatica help documentation also is difficult to find instructions for DeviceHub installation and configuration.Does anyone have a top-to-bottom documentation on at least the DeviceHub setup and usage? Thank you,Greg

Can anyone provide a “best practices” for optimizing IIS in production? We’ve experienced the following:IIS seems to need to “cold start” periodically. Takes about 30 seconds.Occasionally, during the day, while working with the system, it will “pause” for 20-30 seconds.The server CPU and memory are at less than 20% usage, as is the DB, so we have lots of horsepower.The server has a 10GB internet connection, and the client is on a 1 GB fibre.My thought is that this is an IIS configuration issue.
A specific user has full rights to go to a specific dashboard without issue, but when setting the dashboard (or a different dashboard) as user Home Page, upon login it just goes to generic Welcome to Acumatica page. The user has full Granted rights to these dashboards and can see the dashboards just fine when choosing them from the menus.
I cannot find anywhere how to set the default shipping carrier that is chosen on the Sales Order screen under the Shipping Settings tab under ‘Ship Via’ and also on the Shipment screen at the same place.We have implemented the FedEx carrier plugin, but not the UPS one. UPS Ground is on the Ship Via Codes, but there is no place to select the default. We have 6 FedEx Ship via Codes, from the plugin, and one UPS and UPS is defaulting on every document. Thanks, and this would be a good thing to include in the documentation on setting up carriers.
Is there anywhere in the Help file or otherwise that provides a list of all the special roles in Acumatica? We’ve run across this issue when we create a new role for a specific job. We assign the user the correct access rights for the screen but some UI elements are tied to a special role so they still don’t show.In our case it was being able to open / close Financial Periods-that function is tied to the Financial Supervisor roleHere is a list of special roles that I’ve come up with so far. I would love to have a complete list with explanations. I’m not sure on the ones with a question mark. The following roles in Acumatica are special roles that are tied to specific functionality AcumaticaSupport: Role for Acumatica Support. Access similar to Administrator except for User Management, Security Settings and Access Management. Administrator: System Administrator. Gives access to every area of Acumatica Anonymous: No access- think this may be used in API calls for the initial con
