Allow more than one SO for an Opp Checkbox Opportunity / Sales Order Default behavior is that only 1 Sales Order can be created from the Opportunity, This allows multiple Sales Orders to be created from a single opportunity. This can be used, for example, when a client wants to use Opportunities as a sales pipeline.

If you have a need for this, please contact your Ascent Engagement Manager.

Remember that the Qty on Hand field on the item master does not include inventory that is in a location that is not counted in inventory.

Use Cost(4 dec) on Item Master Checkbox Item Master By enabling this custom setting, Ascent will use the Cost(4) field on the Item Master as opposed to the Cost field, which has only 2 decimal place accuracy. This means that the Cost field will not be used in Ascent. It does not mean that both fields can be used, because Ascent will look to this setting to determine which field should be used. If this is chosen, then the Cost field should be removed from the Item Master page layout.
Use Discount 2 decimals on SOLine Checkbox Sales Order Line This custom setting is no longer required to be set since Ascent was enhanced to allow for standard 2 decimal place discounts.
Use From Location on RMA Return Checkbox RMA (Case), Returns Use this setting if you want to make sure all the product that your customers will be returning will go into the same location you packed out from.

However, if there exists a trade agreement where the price is less than the item cost, and it would apply to the purchase order based on the vendor, quantity, unit of measure, and date from/to, then the trade agreement price would override the item cost.
Use Item Condition Checkbox Location, Sales Order Line, Return Line, Serial Number Tracker Item Condition is used when processing RMA lines and Returns. RMA/return line has a field called condition. depending on what value this field has, the processed item is received in a lot/location with the same condition as the line condition – as the Location has also a field called Condition.

Use Pallets? Checkbox Assorted areas If enabled, you can optionally use pallets to track inventory, receive it, move it, pack it; a pallet can have 1 item, 1 location, 1 lot. You cannot have more than one item, location, or lot referenced on a pallet. If an item has a Max Pallet Qty field filled in with this custom setting enabled, then receiving a PO for this item, based on quantity received, can create multiple pallet records. For example, if Max Pallet Qty = 100, and you receive 247, then Ascent will create 3 pallets, the first two for 100 each, and the third for 47.
Use Parent Groups in Trade Agreements Checkbox Trade Agreement Check this field if you want to use parent groups when defining trade agreements. This will allow a group of customers under a parent group to take advantage of a higher level of pricing.

This becomes very useful when analyzing returns for an item.
Use Ship Lot for SOLine Checkbox SO Line If this is enabled, Pack SO screen will display a new column for ship lot and the shipment will move the shipped qty into this lot.

Count Quarantined Lots in QOh Checkbox Item Master This setting allows the quantities in any quarantined lot to be eligible to be counted in the item quantity on hand field, assuming the location is one whose quantities are included in the quantity on hand calculation (see location field for “Count in Inventory”). If this setting is left blank, then any quantities in a quarantined lot will not be counted in the quantity on hand calculation.
Decimal Precision This custom setting is no longer used.
Default Quantity on Mobile Pack SO When using the Ascent Mobile Menu function to pack a sales order, the default quantity that will appear will be equal to what is entered into this field. If a company typically packs one (1) of their items, then by entering a 1 into this field, the picker will not have to enter that quantity. If course, this quantity can be overridden if something other than this quantity is being packed.
Disable beforeInsertInvoice Trigger The default setting (meaning the setting is not checked) will add the delivery address, billing address, sales tax, tax code, shipping cost and miscellaneous charges to the sales invoice.

These attributes are typically only known the personnel receiving the PO or completing the PWO (for the BOM only).
Do not set Location By Lot on SNT Insert Checkbox When this custom setting is enabled, if you create a serial# with a lot and no location, the location will not be set to the lot’s location. IF this is disabled, which is the default setting, the location is set by the lot’s location.
Do not subtract qoh on SO Planner Checkbox PO, PO Line If selected, then when creating POs on Sales Purchase Planner, they will be created for the exact quantity as on the sales order, without checking the quantity on hand on the item master and subtracting from that required quantity. This would be enabled if the company created replenishment orders based on exact requirements.
Edit Po/Pwos before creation on MP Checkbox PO, PO Line, PWO, BOM Depletion Line If enabled, after selecting Create PO or Create PWO on Master Planner, the system allows you to change the quantities on the PO Lines or on the PWO before approving them and creating POs or PWOs. You may wish to change the suggested quantities due to outside information not available to Master Planner, like a very large opportunity a sales rep might have, but hasn’t been entered into Ascent yet.
Fieldset for Profile SO Lines This is used for defining different field sets for different profiles, for the viewsowithfieldset page. Please discuss usage with your Ascent Engagement Manager.

Picking Work Order Lines Use Lot Rules Checkbox Work Order Packing screen Once enabled, a work order that is created from a sales order will use the same picking rules that have been established in Admin Settings under Lot Settings “Lot Sort Order on Sales Order Packing” – FIFO (First In First Out), FEFO (First Expiring First Out), LIFO (Last in First Out), Name Ascending, or Highest Quantity.
Rollup Min Qty on Hand For Item Locator Checkbox Item Locators, Transfer Orders Used for Transfer Order Planner; allows you to roll up values form the child item locators to the source location item locators for reporting and inventory load balancing. The totals for Min on Hand, Quantity on Hand and GAP for the Item Locator for a Source Location will be calculated from the child location values.
Show Config setup on Item Config screen Checkbox SO Configuration Process screen When you are using item configurations, you have an option, if this custom setting is enabled, to see all of the item configuration groups you have set up for this item, and be allowed to select any one that you wish to actually configure, rather than, when this is not enabled, being shown every item within every configurable group. This setting can reduce unnecessary scrolling through screens and checking/unchecking items.
Show additional Lot fields on Pack SO Checkbox Seen during PackSO process. When enabled, Ascent will display additional information about the lot that you are hovering over when the Lines Packed for this order display is shown.
Show item family on view PO page Checkbox PO Line When this is enabled, and when the validation rule “Iten_cannot_be_null” is deactivated, then the item family field can be displayed and entered. Some companies would use this when they wish to tell their vendor that they want to buy a product, but don’t have the specific item number for the product (maybe it hasn’t been developed yet), so they create a product family, and use that name in the item family field, leaving the item number blank. Then, once the vendor confirms the item can be supplied, the user can create an item number, and once that’s done, can enter the item number into the item field on the PO line.
TO Due Date Offset Num Days Number (4,0) Transfer Order Ascent will take the number of days entered into this field and add them to the Order Date to arrive at a Due Date for the transfer order.

You will see vendor on the PackSO screen, and can assign/change to whom the purchase order will be assigned. A PO will be created, however, you will be able to actually receive lines on the PO, resulting in movement lines being created (one receipt line and one packed SO line for each PO receipt done, bringing inventory into stock and immediately removing it from stock) as well as updating inventory, the SO Line (Quantity Packed, Quantity Left to Pack), and if the item was serialized, you will be able to record the serial# of the item being drop shipped, which is particularly important for companies who distribute medical devices.
Use Entities Checkbox Various By enabling this, you are allowing entities to be used, which can restrict users to using only those locations for which they have been given access, via the “User Location” tab. Some companies use this to financially separate transactions.

Using Ascent Tax Rate codes is useful if the company does not sell or purchase in many jurisdictions and can manually handle adding/updating those tax codes.
Move to Location in Bulk Move Checkbox Movement Lines, Lots, Inventory, Item Master Once enabled, any item movement will result in a lot to location move rather than a lot to lot move.
Do not Allow Qty Change when Packing BOM Checkbox BOM Depletion Lines, Packed SO Line If this is enabled, then you will not be allowed to change the quantity of any BOM component when packing out an SO. As a result, you can keep the original BOM quantity integrity, not allowing the individual quantities to be changed.
Dont close return if it has Open Lines Checkbox Case, Return If a return is linked to a CASE, and the CASE is closed, if this setting is enabled, the return will remain open and will not close until all lines are processed. Often times, a company will use a CASE as the initiation point for a return, and a return will be created and linked to the CASE. Once the disposition of the CASE is determined, the customer service rep may close the case, however, the material may not have been returned, hence, the need to keep the return open.
Enable quote currency clone Checkbox Quote If this is set, then when you clone a quote, the process also clones the currency from the clone-from quote to the newly cloned quote.
Dont make SO on Return Line insert Checkbox SO, SO Line This setting is used to disable the sales order creation when a Return line with type Replace-From Order is added or updated.

Do Not Allow CC to swap SN between items Checkbox Count Line, Serial Number Tracker If this is enabled, then when doing a cycle count, you cannot scan a serial number that belongs to item A and assign it to item B. This will assist in inhibiting the user from scanning like items and their serial numbers incorrectly.
Show MP demand by Locations Checkbox Master Planner tab If you are entering locations on SO Lines or Contract Manufacturing Purchase Order Lines, and wish to see this demand grouped by location, enable this setting.
Make New Count Journal for each count Checkbox Count Journal, Count Lines If multiple personnel are performing cycle counts, and you wish to have each person maintain their own count journal, rather than each of them adding lines to the same count journal, enable this setting. As a result, each “counter” will have their own count journal, allowing supervisors to more easily monitor activity and individual count journal accuracy.
Use Container on Single Sales Order. Checkbox Sales Order For those companies that use containers, this setting, if enabled, would prohibit the use of a container on multiple sales orders. An error message will occur if you try to reference a container on Sales Order “B” that was used on Sales Order “A”.

Apply discount amount to Line Price Checkbox SO Line, Quote Line, Opportunity Line If this setting is enabled, then the discount amount will be applied to the SO Line Price, Quote Line Price, and the Opportunity Line Price, instead of the line total. The discount amount will be subtracted from the price, and the result will be multiplied by the line quantity.

Include Opportunities in Planner Data Checkbox Planner Data tab If checked, then when you go to the Planner Data tab, the button called “Generate MP Data”, after execution, will then include Opportunities.
Allow Shipping from Not Counted in T.O. Checkbox Inventory Detail, Transfer Order Line If this setting is enabled, then you can pack out a transfer order from a not counted in inventory location. This could be useful if you are sending all of your inspected, but rejected goods from a location which is classified as not counted in inventory, to another location, and require paperwork via a transfer order.
Disable Trade Agreements on Quote Lines Checkbox Quote Lines This feature allows you to inhibit trade agreements from coming into play on quote lines, simply by checking the box. This gives the sales or customer service reps to enter whatever price is appropriate at the time of quoting.
Don’t Allow Duplicate Lots Creation Checkbox Lots When checked, Ascent will not allow duplicate lots in the same location to be created for the same item.
Don’t Create Default Lots On New Items Checkbox Lots When checked, Ascent will disable lot creation on new item creation (only when lot usage is disabled).
Do not set price on Quote Line Checkbox Quote Lines If this is enabled, Sales Price will not be updated by Ascent code – it will remain zero. Use this feature if you want to populate the Sales Price on the quote line with your own code.
Do not calculate ATP on viewso page Checkbox ViewSO Page If this is checked, then ATP will not be calculated on the ViewSO (View Sales Order Lines) page. This can be checked if the ViewSO page is taking too much time or resources or giving errors due to too many rows of data being retrieved.
Disable BOM depletion Lines add on sales Checkbox BOM Depletion Lines If this setting is checked, then no BOM Depletion Lines will be created when using a BOM-Phantom on a Sales Order Line. This setting should only be enabled after consulting with an Ascent Solutions engagement manager to discuss the ramifications of this feature.
Shipping Tax is same as SO Tax Checkbox Sales Order, Sales Invoice If this is selected, then for Sales Invoice and Sales order, the Tax on Shipping will be equal to the Shipping Cost * Sales Tax / 100.
Default Quantity when adding SOL/OL Number (16,2) SO Line, Opportunity Line If a quantity is entered into this field, then whatever quantity you enter will be the default Quantity Needed on the Sales Order Line or Opportunity Line. This could be quite useful if, for example, a company sells the same quantity of goods on every order line, or at least on a consistent number of lines, this resulting in less keystrokes.
Ascent2ffVersion Installed in Org This custom setting is no longer used.
Move inv. From/To Quarantine Lot Checkbox Inventory Detail, Movement Lines, Lots After enabling this setting, you will be able to move inventory to and from quarantined lots.
Dont Allow Mod BomComp Qty-Complete PWO Checkbox BOM Depletion Lines If this setting is enabled, the user will not be allowed to change the quantities on BOM Depletion lines when completing a PWO. This is useful when only the exact quantities of components can be consumed when completing/building a BOM.
Disable CaseActions Trigger Checkbox CASE When enabled, the CASE status is not updated when RMA Lines are processed. This is useful when a different department creates the CASE than the one that processes the RMA/Return Lines.
Use Ship Date from SOLIne on forms Checkbox PackSlip, Ship Confirm Once enabled, then the system will use the Ship Date from the SO Line on printed forms, rather than Actual Pack Date from the SO Line. This Ship Date will now print on the packslip and the ship confirm.
