Unattended Invoice Creation
The ability to create outbound invoices unattended will be added to MAPADOC. This feature can be turned on or off per trading partner. If turned on, the invoices will be selected automatically. They will be posted and sent automatically via the Unattended Outbound Creation task.
940/945 Warehouse Documents
The ability to send outbound 940 Warehouse Ship Orders and receive inbound 945 Warehouse Ship Advice documents will be added to MAPADOC. Orders can be sent to the 3PL warehouse and, when shipped, the inbound 945 will create the shipment within Sage 500 ERP and will also create the ASN, if applicable. New Item Selection Option for Outbound 832 Catalogs A new option is being added to the outbound 832 Catalog setup to allow for the selection of which items are sent on the Catalog, based on a product category. All items assigned to the selected product category will be added to the Catalog. New Item Selection Option for Outbound 846 Inventory Advices A new option is being added to the outbound 846 Inventory Advice setup to allow for the selection of which items are sent on the Inventory Advice, based on a product category. All items assigned to the selected product category will be selected for the Inventory Advice.
EDI Order Inquiry
A new EDI Order Inquiry screen will be added to MAPADOC to give users an easy way to view and track the status of EDI sales orders created through MAPADOC. Users can choose various options for which sales orders are displayed: all activity, PO Acknowledgements not sent, ASNs not sent, Invoices not sent, and Order Status Reports not sent. Users can also drill into the details of each outbound transaction created against a sales order to see the particular details of that transaction.
Voucher Creation Setup/Voucher Creation – New Freight Allocation Option
These options have been modified to add a new option to choose a freight allocation method to be used during inbound invoice processing. If this new option is selected the total freight amount assigned to the invoice will be allocated to the detail lines based on the method selected.
