Hi @EqeRobertK,Unfortunately this option is not available in Project resources. The best thing would be to create this as a new idea in the Idea section of IFS Community, so that this would be considered in future developments.Hope my answer helped to clear your doubts. If so be kind enough to mark it as the best answer.
Hi @NiranjanG,I recently saw the same error for a App7.5 customer. The issue was there was a value for “This Applied For Retention Released” in the valuation. When uncertifying, this value is taken as unbalanced. Only a DEBIT line is created in reversed posting, no CREDIT line for this to balance. Hence, we decided to do a data correction to remove this value. I’m not sure if the issue with your valuation is the same. But you can check this as well. And as Kasun suggested, please reach IFS Support if you could not resolve the issue.Hope my answer helped to clear your doubts
Hi Vibhu, It was processed through Time Clock on one of our shop floor terminals. The business event is LABOR_RPT. I wasn’t provided much more detail so I hope this helps. Thanks, Samantha Hi @samantha.henderson,I think Dameenda has provided a better explanation to your issue. Hope it’ll help to erase your doubts.
Hi @mxa6450,As per standard behavior you can’t reopen a ‘Cancelled’ CO. The contract change order can be reopened from any status except from Preliminary, Closed or Canceled. (http://docweb.corpnet.ifsworld.com/ifsdoc/Apps10/Documentation/en/default.htm?openpage=http://docweb.corpnet.ifsworld.com/ifsdoc/Apps10/Documentation/en/ContractChangeManagement/ActivityReopenContractChangeOrder.htm)I am not sure of any functional workaround to resolve this to my knowledge. But you can change the status of the CO from the DB, using a script. (Something like a data repair). Then you’ll be able to address the CO actions accordingly. Hope my answer helped to clear your doubts. If so be kind enough to mark it as the best answer.
Hi @XitThilaB, As Erik mentioned, deduction is given on the whole contract. Even the ‘Discount’ is given on the whole contract. (https://services.ifsworld.com/ifsdoc/ifsapp10/Documentation/en/ApplicationForPayment/AboutContractDiscount.htm) So, the answer to your question, ‘whether IFS have an option to add different deduction amounts to different AFPs’, is No. That is not possible in the standard code.However, you always has the option of a customization. Hence please check and evaluate if such thing can be achieved or not. Hope my answer helped to clear your doubts. If so be kind enough to mark it as the best answer.
Hi @First Employee,Unfortunately as you noticed, this is not possible. I am not sure of any workaround to suggest. But I can confirm this is not possible in App10 Core code.Hope my answer helped to clear your doubts. If so be kind enough to mark it as the best answer.
Hi @bbooth32,You are NOT allowed to ‘Delete’ a project once it is approved. Once a project is Approved, you can only “Complete”. The projects are allowed to delete only when they are in Initialized state. Further you cant just delete a Financial project as well.First you must Complete the project from management. And then Complete the financial project. This is the intended behavior. Hence the only option left to you is Completing the project. Hope my answer helped to clear your doubts. If so be kind enough to mark it as the best answer.
Hi @kh3121,As per intended behavior you should be able to connect a PO line to an activity, though the PO line state is Confirmed. As per your error, you can connect only when PO is in Planned, which I think is an issue that needs to be investigated thoroughly. Best option would be to contact IFS Support by creating a support case so that our consultants can have a further look and provide a solution. Hope my answer helped you to clear doubts. If so be kind enough to mark it as the best answer.
Hi @Miguel,Currently, latest UPD is 15. Yes, it was available in previous versions and for some reason, (could be a mistake) this is not in UPD13. Unfortunately I don't have a BUG id. You may raise a support cases to IFS Support to get more info about the bug. (Like, is there a specific bug for this or, was this corrected in UPD14.)Hope my answers helped you to clear doubts?
hi @PraKatieM,Let me answer your questions one by one.1. Is there anywhere where I can see my values from my Project Forecast? Perhaps an “Active Budget” column?- This is not possible as such column is not available in the core/standard code 2. Is there functionality to copy all of my Project Forecast values to Estimated Costs? - Unfortunately, this is not possible. You can only copy Estimates to a Forecast but cannot copy Forecasted amounts to Estimated values. The idea is that; once you forecast a different estimate cost/revenue in the forecast, user can come back to the project and update the Estimate cost. - Such changes you made to the project can be reviewed using project history logs (Hope you are aware about project history logs and setting baselines.) 3. So why is my Project Forecast not considered a Connected Object? Am I missing a setting to enable this connection?- The ‘Project Forecasts’ are not considered as connected object to define the ‘Planned Cost’ in a project. You
Hi @kh3121,When manually connecting, system validates Activity Status and connected objectAs long as the activity is Planned or Released and the PO line is Planned or Released, you should be able to connect/disconnect without any issue. The normal steps would be to;Right click on the PO line > Project Connection > Connect to Activity > Add activity data accordingly. Do you face any errors is doing so? If so please provide more info so that we could help. (Few screen pictures)
Hi @robert_g This could be mainly due to the amount of data in your PROD environment. That’s why you cannot observe the same delay in a test environment. You may,take a fresh copy of the PROD environment to a test environment re-try the steps to see if you can observe the same delay in the TEST environment.If you could observe the delay in TEST, you can do a technical investigation.Further you can ask your DBA to a take a ‘Statspack’ report from the PRD to see to which part of the process, more time is consumed.These steps will help you to further diagnose the issue and if you could verify if this is not due to network or other infrastructure issue, or you can report to IFS Global Support by raising a new support case.
Hi @John Board CCO will always be the best way to track project variations. There are few Australian customers itself, who are using Projects, Contracts & CCO very effectively.Unfortunately I don't have any document to share but CCO is a very useful tool that can be used.
Hi @m.arif,There is no specific document that can be shared. However, you can try the online documentation for this. (E-learning documentation)Further you may contact IFS Academy to participate in a Contract Mgt course which will enhance your knowledge in the related area.Since you are trying to use the functionality to meet a specific objective, (use it for deferred revenue) you may need a comprehensive idea about the functionality. Hence getting consulting help is also is an option.If you come across any specific error/issue during the flow, do mention it here, so that I can try to provide an answer.
In IFS Apps 10 Update 11 Aurena, we have found the following issue on the Product Structure screen (Engineering > Structure > Product Structure > Product Structure) (Issue # 2)
Hi @Elath De Silva What you are saying is correct. The same issue can be seen in “Product Structure Alternate” screen as well. (Both are under Engineering category)But this is not observed in other screens from other modules. (Verified this in Sub Contract & Project Definition screens)However, this issue is not observed in App10 core environment, (which I think has UPD12). If any customer reports this as an issue, kindly ask them to upgrade to latest UPD so that this issue can be resolved.
