Scanning issues

We receive items on purchase orders by scanning our vendors UPCs.  When we do 
this, we have one person do the UPC scanning and another person watching the 
computer screen to make sure each item goes in okay.  Not the most efficient 
system.  Is there anything we can do to have the computer give some sort of 
audible warning if the UPC isn't recognized or the item wasn't on the 
purchase order?

not a total solution but scanners can be programmed to allow only certain
types of barcodes.
this may help.  not sure about the pc end because I don't use rms.

The following was designed based on input from retailers like you.  With 
2B-Inventory for RMS/POS (handheld add-on), you can receive items with the 
following functionality:

1.  If the item code exists, it will receive with no promt and associates it 
to an existing PO
2.  If the item code does not exist, you can add it as an alias to an 
existing item and it will associate it to an existing PO.  This can all be 
done from the receiving screen.
3.  During the PO reconciliation step on the handheld, you see a list of 
items that you received and the associated PO.  If the item exists on 
multiple POs, you are prompted to choose which PO you would like to receive 
the item against.  You also have the option of receiving new items and 
associating that item with an existing PO.

If you have questions or you are interested in learning more about 
2B-Inventory, visit our website (www.2Bsolutions.net/2B-Inventory.htm), 
contact your Microsoft Partner, or call 205-408-9991.  If you would like to 
see this functinality, I would be happy to set up an online demonstration.

> Not the most efficient system.

If you create a PO when you place the order, you can receive products in a
few clicks.
If you don't place PO's this way, check out this power tool for RMS.
http://www.digitalretailer.com/demos/PowerOpsPOgen.html
Using a packing list and this tool, you could quickly tag the items you want
to receive, enter quantities, then create and receive the PO. That has to be
a lot faster than pulling items out of a box and scanning them in one by
one.

Contact your RMS reseller for more information.

pop3 download issue
using Outlook 2002 (SP3). Messages on my pop server get downloaded repeatedly. This happens only for some messages and seems to be somewhat random (if I send/receive repeatedly, different messages get redownloaded each time).

Strange login authorization issue
I have created a number of custom roles and assigned these to my CRM users. The roles have full read access on contacts, accounts and a custom entity. When I start CRM from the webclient (users also use the outlook client), I get a CRM unauthorized error which says I don't have enough rights to view certain records.

Discount List Issue
We serve the medical industry and we charge our customers based on annual patient volume so for example, we list EP (our paper product) in the Product Catalog under Products. Then we defined a product price list for EP that charges x amount of dollars per patient visit. Then we went to the Discount Lists and gave price breaks based on the volume of patient visits so anything over 12,000 would be given a slight break and an even better break for more visits. So to sum up, we have a pricing model that supports volume based discount pricing. However, no matter what qty we put in it alwa...
