|Transaction Separation for Production Receipt||The setting is recommended to be used if more than one employee works on the same purchase order. If the setting is enabled, the Receipt from Production Flow separates the transactions based on the employees who have been working on the purchase order.
Produmex Scan displays the number of purchase order lines that have been received by the given employee and the purchase order lines can be posted based on the separate transactions.
E.g. 6/9/10 pack means that altogether 10 packs should be received, out of which 9 packs have already been received and 6 packs have been received by the given employee. It means that 3 other packs have been received by (an)other employee(s). These transactions now can be posted separately.
|Transaction Separation for Production Issue||The setting is recommended to be used if more than one employee works on the same production order. If the setting is enabled, the Issue for Production Flow separates the transactions based on the employees who have been working on the production order.
Produmex Scan displays the number of production order lines that have been issued by the given employee and the production order lines can be posted based on the separate transactions.
E.g. 6/9/10 pack means that altogether 10 packs should be issued, out of which 9 packs have already been issued and 6 packs have been issued by the given employee. It means that 3 other packs have been issued by (an)other employee(s). These transactions now can be posted separately.
|Copy UDF Values to Target Document |
(workaround for an SAP Business One bug, for more information click here)
|If the setting is enabled, the UDF values of the base document are copied to the target document when the target document is being created. The data copy is applied on a head and line level as well. The setting applies to the following cases:
* Purchase Order > Goods Receipt PO
* A/P Reserve Invoice > Goods Receipt PO
* Sales Order > Delivery
* A/R Reserve Invoice > Delivery
* Pick List > Delivery
* Inventory Transfer Request > Inventory Transfer
* Sales Order > Inventory Transfer
* Delivery > Sales Return
* A/R Invoice > A/R Credit Memo
If a UDF is filled in on the base document and it is also configured as a custom field on the Produmex Scan client, user queries must be created to have the default value of the UDF copied from the base document to the target document.
By default, the setting is disabled because it causes a loss in performance. If you use UDF values on a head and/or line level and they are copied while using Produmex Scan, make sure that you enable the setting to avoid potential data loss.
The following table describes the fields on the Produmex Scan Scanning tab of the Produmex Scan Settings window.
