5. EnterpriseOne Search - An Alternative to Enhancing User Inquiries

Bernadette Durham, Director of JD Edwards Practice at Terillium Inc.

Thursday, Sept. 28 | 8:00am – 9:00am MT | Tower Court B

How can I search for a customer address record based on their city, state and zip? How can I narrow down my item lookup in purchase order entry to only view items for my specific vendor? The answer used to be “you can’t without an enhancement” – there were some workarounds, but nothing that completely met the business need. And then along came EnterpriseOne Search! This UDO allows custom searches to be built, including over multiple business views or tables, so that you can provide lookups on the fields that the users need, display only the data that is useful, and allow selection of records directly from the search. The E1 Search can be used in almost any application or functional area – this session will be based in Distribution applications, but that’s a limitation of the time we have and not the tool itself!
