Lot Owners List View

Owners are used to identify who owns the inventory. Additional Owners are typically added for companies that do custom processing and need to keep that inventory separate from their own. Owner is one of the 5 components that make up a unique Inventory Lot and it is required on all Inventory Lots. The purpose of this page is to add, edit, remove, and activate/inactive these records.

(lightbulb) An Inventory Lot is the most granular level that item balances (quantities of Units and/or Weight) are stored within NorthScope. Inventory Lots are created for all Inventory Items assigned an Item Type of “Inventory', regardless of whether the Item is Lot Tracked (i.e., balances are maintained by Production Batch) or the Site containing the product is 'Warehouse Lot' tracked or not. 

An Inventory Lot is unique by combination of:

  • Item: The Item ID (required for all Inventory Lots)
  • SiteThe Site/Warehouse that contains the inventory (required for all Inventory Lots)
  • Production BatchThe date code or other traceability reference that stays with product and never changes. It is required for Items with a 'Lot Tracked' property of "Yes" and will be blank for Items with a 'Lot Tracked' property of "No"
  • Warehouse LotThe identifier or location within a Site/Warehouse, this is most typically used for 3rd party distribution sites. It is required for 'Inventory Lots' in a Warehouse Lot tracked Site and will be blank for 'Inventory Lots' in a non Warehouse Lot tracked Site. This has nothing to do with whether the Item is 'Lot Tracked' or not. 
  • Owner: Identifies who owns the product. This is required for all Inventory Lots.

Page Header

Toolbar IconsDescription
Column Filter Show/Hide Toggles between displaying and hiding a filter row in the grid under the column headers. The filter row will be displayed by default if the Quick Column Filter is also implemented in the page. When enabled, this will allow users to type in text to filter by a specific column.
DeleteDeletes the selected record(s). When clicked, users will be prompted with: "Are you sure you want to delete the selected records?". Click "OK" to confirm, or "Cancel" to return without deleting. 

WARNING: Records cannot be recovered once they are deleted!

Excel Exports the contents of the grid to an Excel file that will automatically download. The contents that export are those that are visible to the user. Therefore, if the user has filtered the view, or excluded columns, only the contents in the grid will be exported. 
Favorites Clicking on the star icon when it is an outline, adds the page to the 'My Shortcuts' tab and fills in the star. Clicking on the star icon when it is filled in (solid color), removes the page from the 'My Shortcuts' tab and returns the icon to an outline. 

(lightbulb) Users must log out and back in before the pages will be visible in the 'My Shortcuts' tab.

Group By Show/Hide Toggles between displaying and hiding a row in the grid above the column headers to enable grouping by one or more column(s). Once displayed, users may drag and drop column headers to group by a specific column. Once the grid is grouped by a column(s), a subtotal footer row will display in the grouping for columns that have a page footer total. 
Help Opens the online WIKI help page for the current page. 
New Inserts blank lines that allow adding multiple new records.
Quick Column Filter Used to filter across all columns in the grid. When the user types text into the Quick Column Filter text box, the grid's Filter Row will be automatically hidden. The text in the Quick Column Filter text box automatically replaces any existing Filter Row filters. The results of the data immediately refresh as you enter text.
Save Saves all changes made on the page.
Saved Layouts Displays the column layout lookup and related icons. This tool allows users to select a previously saved layout, create a new layout, save changes to a layout, forget/delete a layout and/or assign a saved layout as the default for the page. Once changes are made to the layout, such as columns are added or removed, the user can click the Save Layout icon and save the changes to the column layout. The visibility of the Filter Row is also saved with a saved layout. The new layout can also be set as the default. This is useful for creating specific views to separate master files or transaction types (i.e. Invoice specific vs. Credit Memo specific).  Default layouts can be removed by clicking the 'Set as Default' button again when the current default layout is selected.  

Please note that existing saved grid layouts will display the Filter Row as hidden by default.

CheckboxUsed to select one or more records.
Owner Name

A text box to add or edit the unique identifier of the Owner record. This defaults to blank but is required for all records. If missing, the record will not be added on Save. The ID must be unique, otherwise the message "Duplicate Owner Names are not allowed." will be displayed on Save. This field must be <= 25 characters.

Database Field: ERPx_IMLotOwner.OwnerName

Third Party

A Yes/No field used to identify if the Owner is an outside entity. For example, if company ABC does custom processing for company XYZ  then the Owner of 'XYZ' would be identified as a Third Party. If set to 'Yes' then the record is considered a Third Party Owner. In most organizations, only one Owner would be set to "No". 'No' values display as blank in the grid. This value is always editable.  

This is informational data only. There is no functionality tied to this value.
