Unknown Invoiced Items
Notifications: In the top right corner of your screen, you will see a bell icon that shows notifications for Unmapped Invoice Items that have been invoiced, but they do not have a COGS account assigned to them (most of the time these are subbed items).
Selecting the notification will take you to the Unknown Invoice Items page where you can now assign an Account from the drop-down COGS Account options.
Unknown Invoice Items fall into the unknown category for one of the reasons below:
Unknown Items are invoiced items that are Substitutions.
Subs will not have bid file item Number and will continue to appear under PPC Exports > Unknown items for account category assignment each time the distributor uses it as a sub and does not add it to your bid file.
Unknown Items are Items invoiced that do not exist in the bid file with an ingredient mapped.
If the item is a permanent item number change, the customer should request the Distributor update the Decision Logic bid file to include the item.
Once the bid file is available, you will want to map the item Number to an ingredient.
If there are historical Orders for the bid file item Number in Decision Logic prior to the ingredient being mapped, you may want to request a COGS Update via firstname.lastname@example.org to assign historical orders to the newly mapped ingredient
When you map the unknown invoice items to an Ingredient in Bid File Maintenance, that will not correct historical items that did not have an assignment at the time they were invoiced, but it will prevent the items from appearing on the unknown invoice items list going forward. To correct historical items you will need to select an account from the Unknow Invoice Items page by selecting the notification or navigating to Exports > Accounting > PPC Invoices> Unknown Items
All electronic distributors that are sending an E Credit memo, need to have the amount for each item total less than $0. That means they should be sent as a negative amount for the E Credit to get reporting in Invoice History. If you are not seeing your E-credits reporting in Decision Logic, you will want to confirm with the distributor that they are being sent with the correct negative amount in the file
