Hello, apologies for the long question.I am working to setup Acumatica and noticed the handling of inventory for Sales Order shipments is different than every system I have worked on in the past. With our current configuration, when you create shipment for a Sales order you stop just short of Updating IN. This is because one you Update IN it creates the inventory COGS transaction on the PL. We do not invoice and recognize the revenue, until the product is delivered to our customers. So if you do Update IN this creates a disconnect between revenue and expense (not an option). However, if you do not Update IN the inventory remains “On Hand” at the warehouse and all reporting shows those quantities on hand. What I would prefer to see is that inventory moved to In Transit until the SO is invoices at which time the inventory is expenses and the Receivable is created. Due to the inventory remaining ON Hand I am having a difficult time reconciling physical counts at our sites and creates a hu
Hello,Sometimes it is found that material already issued to a production order is not good.It needs to be moved out of WIP and off of the production order into an inspection warehouse or location.It needs to be inspected at this point to determine if it will be returned to vendor, credit requested, or it can somehow be used.What transaction will allow us to to return this specific material into inventory, not to the original location but to a new inspection warehouse or location?If it is found to be defective, how do we return it to the vendor since the original PO receipt is complete?Thanks!
My company adds $3.75 handling fee to outbound UPS shipments. This amount is added to the freight cost we incur from the carrier (UPS), the sum of the two quantities (freight cost + our handling fee) are combined and billed to the customer on their invoice. I see handling charges can be added using SHIPPING TERMS, which can be assigned within CUSTOMER CLASSES. However, if I have a sale that is delivered via my company’s truck or if the customer picks up at my facility there should not be a shipping and handling charge. I’d like to avoid relying on users to manually change the SHIPPING TERMS on a sales order each time there is a customer pickup or deliver via our truck. Is there a way to attach the shipping and handling charge to SHIP VIA or CARRIER so this is automated? There must be something I’m missing in order to accomplish this. We are not the only company to use freight padding.Thank you,Matt
Hello, I met a case, user miss put 66.2 cases line item on invoice, which should be 66.2 lb. The “real” shipment is 66.2 lb. And AR total is correct. So it is just system document typo error. Then I manually created a credit memo, which is to get 66.2 cases back(virtually) and issue 66.2 lb. Then I found out the IN issues based on this credit memo is automatically released. However, the cost of the returned 66.2 cases is 0. Which I’d like to be the same cost as the sold items. Such as $6 per cases. It might be my mistake, that I just added the credit memo lines manually. I am not sure, if I used the “add return line” function, whether the cost would be input as I expected. But sometimes it is the quickest way to do it, and users are preferring using this way (add lines directly), because it is quick. If I would like the customer return at original cost, what is the best way to do it?
The quantity open on PO per the inventory summary is overstated. One PO (PO001122) line is duplicated in the summary and the MRP detail inquiry, but is correct on the PO line inquiry and the actual PO. The promised date was changed for a couple items on this PO (supply chain issues) but only one line is being duplicated.We have run “Recalculate Inventory” and the error did not resolve. Also tried editing both the PO and the line but the duplicate is not clearing. Below are screen prints showing the discrepancy:We’re at a loss to figure out why this discrepancy occurred and how to resolve it. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
Every Purchase Order requires a Vendor. Every Item has a Vendor attached to it. How do I tell a PO to only allow line items who are set for the vendor on the PO? Example: I am buying from Bob on a PO, but Acumatica lets me try to buy an item that is only sold by Frank. If a PO is for Bob, why can’t the item selector only show me items buyable from Bob? I don’t care about the things I can buy from Frank. This would also help ensure that the vendors are attached properly (like Bob sells Milk, but I don’t see Milk on my list, so I know something is off on the item). Hopefully this is a toggle somewhere I’m missing.
We are trying to wave and batch pick thousands of shipments per day. The system will not allow us to print the labels until the shipments are confirmed, so we have a business event running that will autoconfirm the shipments after they have been picked. This allows the picker to print the labels and packing slips directly after they have picked. The issue is the confirmation takes 30-45 seconds or more per shipment. so if we are batch picking 25 orders with the same product on them, it takes 10 minutes until the labels can be printed. There has to be something we are missing here - confirming a single shipment manually only takes a couple of seconds. We are using out of the box Stamps.com integration.
Is it possible on a per shipment basis using the standard Fedex plugin to specify that signature is or is not required. We know how to setup the Carrier so that the Service dictates whether signature is required or it is ALWAYS required or not required but it would be nice to dynamically specify that per shipment or per customer. Additionally, Big Commerce supports the ability to specify special shipping instructions, these do not currently integrate to Acumatica and there is also no location to even manually enter those so that they would be included on the shipment. Sending special delivery instructions would be a great feature.

My client needs the ability to have multiple shipment open on a sales order simultaneously.

We are looking for a Factoring Management Application that is or can be integrated with the Acumatica ERP. If you or your client are also looking into this, please let me know. We can work together and save money. Our client is implementing the Acumatica ERP. The client uses currently factoring that provides them a loan against their customer invoices. Because the client has to order their materials from China three to four months ahead of their sales order or demand, they need money to bridge that waiting time for sales orders. When the client creates a sales order, the sales order amount is submitted to the factoring company via the factoring private website/portal. If the factoring company approves the submitted sales order amount, only then will our client start the shipment of goods for that approved sales order.. The basic steps of the application should have the following features:Mark all the customers for which customer invoices are factored For a given sales order, check if t
I have a scenario whereby internal employee make a request of inventory items that have existing stock. Thus, when an internal employee enter a request, it will alert or send notification to logistics team to either perform issue or transfer of item to another warehouse or location. When the employee has received the item, the employee can manually close the request form. Or how to manually change the Issue Status to Received, so that system will automatically change the status of the request to closed. Does anyone have any suggestion/solution for this? thanks alot
Good morning. I have a client who needs to generate recurring sales orders to fulfill a quarterly magazine subscription. In an attempt at creating the most streamlined account setup workflow, I have proposed this solution:1) Create Customer Template for Magazine Style (4 to chose from)2) Store Subscription details in the Customer Attributes with details Then trigger automated Sales Order Generation based off of Customer Attributes. However, this last part in the process has proven to be above my head. My general concept was to create a GI that would pull customers that match this profile, then generate a sales order from 1 of 4 templates, using 1 variable from the Customer Attribute (qty of magazine line items per order). Here is a screen shot of my attributes setup.Build 19.205.0023 Any ideas on how to make this happen or another better idea that is more simple?

How do I correct / update an order after it has been invoiced? specifically for the sps edi tab for shipments.

Hello,I’m configuring Landed Cost in Acumatica for the first time. (version 2022 R1)The process seems clear but the end result is $0 adjustment to my item. What am I missing?My example is applying insurance costs weighted by Cost Amount across 3 items on a PO Receipt.Purchase Order (notice, 2 non-stock items on lines 1, 3 and one Stock Item is on line 2):PO Receipt: All Items Received.Landed Cost:What I expect on Valuation: Receipt line $13.30 and Adjustment line $13.30.What I see on Valuation: Receipt line $13.30 and LC adjustment line = $0.What mistake did I make? Thank you in advance for your help!!
Enter landed cost or AP Bill prior to the PO Receipt but does not pay the amount at the moment creating the liability
Hi,One of our customers practices the following scenario.They buy an insurance policy prior to the Receipt of goods and create a bill to make the liability for the insurance company. But does not pay that amount until the goods are received. When the goods are received this amount needs to be allocated to the inventory appropriately. In Acumatica we couldn’t find a way to create a landed cost/bill prior to the purchase Receipt and attach the Bill to landed cost lately. Since the customer is not paying the amount, we cannot assist them to use the prepayment request method, pay the amount and create a prepayment and apply the landed cost once the goods are received.Is there a way to handle this kind of scenario? Please assist me on this regard.Amanda
When upgrading to 2021 R2 we lost the ability to send a PO to multiple email addresses of the same vendor. The email addresses are set up with a ; and a space between them, but it fails to send it to the second email. In 2019 R2 it did work. The notification template has ((Document.VendorLocationID.DefContactID.EMail)) as the “to” email address.
