Ezitrade makes it possible for companies to use the Internet for business-to-business Electronic Commerce (EC) transactions that conform to global Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) standards.

 

Quick Start User's Guide

 

 

The purpose of this guide is to provide you, our ezitrade customer, with an overview of the basic functions of ezitrade. Our goal is to make it easy for you to use ezitrade for sending and receiving electronic business documents (transactions) with the organizations with whom you conduct business (your trading partners). This guide is designed to be a quick reference for the information contained in the ezitrade site itself. The information in this guide is organized by the various pages that make up the ezitrade site.

Ezitrade Home Page

When you first enter the ezitrade site, the ezitrade home page is displayed.

Figure 1. ezitrade Home Page

 

 

 

Click on the Demo button if youd like to browse through ezitrades online, interactive demo.

To begin using ezitrade as a registered user,

      Enter your assigned User Name and Password at the prompts on the ezitrade home.

      Click the Login button.

If you need to re-enter either the User Name or Password,

      Click the Reset button and reenter the information.

Ezitrade Main Menu

After you log in, the ezitrade main menu appears.

Figure 2. ezitrade Sample Main Menu

The ezitrade main menu is the page you will use most often as you interact with ezitrade. From this page, you can:

         review new incoming transactions from your trading partners

         create new transactions to send to your trading partners

         review your current ezitrade account billing status

         and much more

Day-to-Day Usage

For day-to-day usage we recommend processing in the following order:

1.       Review new incoming transactions

2.       Creating outgoing transactions

3.       Finish pending transactions.

Then you can view the ezitrade on-line reports for an update on the status of your past and recent transactions.

To access any of these items simply click on the action you wish to take. For example when you click Incoming Transactions, ezitrade displays a form listing all transactions sent to you by your trading partners. The operations on this form are described in more detail later in this document.

Dynamic Icons

Ezitrade displays dynamic icons and messages at the top of this page to keep you abreast of what is happening at your company account at the ezitrade site. Here are some examples:

This icon appears when you have received new transactions from your trading partners.

 

This icon appears when you have entered transactions into your ezitrade account, but have not yet closed the batch and sent the transactions to the ezitrade server at InterraTech for processing.

 

This icon appears when transactions you have submitted for translation (conversion to or from EDI format) have failed the translation process because of errors. These transactions are not sent to the trading partner. You must correct the errors in these transactions and resubmit them for translation. This icon is also displayed if you send a transaction to your trading partner and the partner returns a functional acknowledgment indicating that the transaction was rejected.

The invoice has been saved in the current batch.

This is an example of a dynamic message that appears on the Main Menu page after you have completed an ezitrade operation.

Main Menu Options

The following options always appear on the Main Menu.

         Select Operation

         View Reports

         Transaction Archives

         Update User Profile

         Update Company Profile

         Send a message to InterraTech

These options are described in the following paragraphs.

Select Operation

This section of the Main Menu enables you to review incoming transactions and create outgoing transactions.

Note: Whenever you see a word in brackets in this document, such as <this>, that word or phrase is variable, and will change based upon how your ezitrade account is set up.

New <Transaction> to <Trading Partner Name>

Click this option to create a new transaction for the trading partner listed in the option. A different option is displayed for each trading partner specified for your ezitrade site. For example, this icon would say "New Invoice to ABC Company" if your ezitrade account is set up for you to send invoices to the ABC Company.

Incoming Transactions

Click this option for a summary of incoming transactions. This summary includes transactions that are new since your last ezitrade visit as well as transactions that you have already viewed but have not yet processed.

View Reports

This section of the Main Menu enables you to review the status of transactions previously sent to ezitrade for processing, previously received from your trading partners, and the status of your ezitrade account. See the section entitled Viewing ezitrade Reports found later in this documentation.

Transaction Archives

The Outbound Transaction Archive provides a list of all acknowledged outgoing transactions that you have sent to your trading partner more than five days ago. This list does not include those transactions that you have sent but your trading partner has not successfully acknowledged. To view transactions that were not acknowledged or for which a rejection acknowledgment was received, view the Outbound Transaction Report.

The Inbound Transaction Archive provides a list of all incoming transactions that are older than five days, and for which you created a turnaround transaction. To view transactions that you still need to process, view the Inbound Transaction Log.

Since archived transactions have all been fully processed, you should have no need to access the Transaction Archives unless a special situation occurs.

Update User Profile

Click this icon to update your user profile information used by the InterraTech Customer Service Team. The following form is displayed.

Figure 3. Update User Profile Form

Figure 5. Send Message to InterraTech Form

      Enter your name, your email address, the subject of your message and the message text.

      Click Send when your message is complete.

Incoming Transactions

This page shows new transactions that have been delivered to the your account.

Figure 6. Incoming Transaction Form

The items listed on this form are transactions sent to you by your trading partners since the last time you logged on to ezitrade, as well as transactions that you have already viewed but have not yet processed. These transactions started out as EDI messages from your trading partner, were translated by the ezitrade server at InterraTech, and then converted into electronic forms for viewing with your browser software. After five days, ezitrade moves any incoming transaction, which has been processed, to the Incoming Transaction Archive. A transaction is considered processed if a turn-around transaction has been created, or, if no turn-around transaction is required, when the transaction has been viewed.

The following columns are included in the display:

Transaction ID

The Transaction ID is the unique number assigned by ezitrade to identify the transaction. This is the number you need to reference if you ever need to contact ezitrade support with a question about this transaction.

Received

This column displays the date and time the transaction was received from the trading partner.


 

Status

This column lists the status of the incoming transaction. The status will be one of the following:

(blank)

A blank status indicates that you have not yet viewed the transaction.

Viewed On <date> <time>

This status indicates the date and time that you viewed the transaction.

Invoice # <invoice #>

This status indicates that you have created a turn around transaction for the incoming transaction. This column lists the transaction name and number for the turn around transaction. Transactions with this status are moved to the Incoming Transaction Archive after five days.

From

This column displays a code identifying the trading partner who sent the transaction.


To view the data entry form for a transaction,

      Click the Transaction ID Number.

Ezitrade displays the form for the <Incoming Transaction> from <Trading Partner> to enable you to view or print the transaction information.

Note: As long as you have incoming transactions that have not been viewed, the "You have received new transactions" icon is displayed on the Main Menu.

<Incoming Transaction> from <Trading Partner>

This form shows the transaction data received from your trading partner. You can review the information or you can print the information on this form on your local printer using the print option of your browser.

Figure 7. Incoming Transaction Form

If the transaction supports it, you will have the option at the bottom of the form to create a turn-around transaction from the information contained in this form.

Figure 8. Turnaround Button

A typical example of a turn-around situation is when you receive a purchase order from your trading partner and need to return an invoice. The turn around option in ezitrade enables you to create an invoice back to your trading partner, using the information contained in the original purchase order transaction. This feature greatly simplifies the task of creating invoices for your trading partners.

Create Outbound Transactions

The Select Operation section of the ezitrade main menu lists a menu item for each outgoing transaction for each of your trading partners. The menu item is in the format New <outgoing transaction> to <Trading Partner> and shows the name of the transaction and the trading partner.

When you select one of these menu items, a form is displayed enabling you to enter the data necessary for the EDI transaction. Although the forms differ for each transaction and trading partner, ezitrade follows standard conventions on all data entry forms.

At the top of the form, ezitrade shows a legend explaining the color conventions on the form as well as giving you the option to force an immediate transmission of the transaction when the form is complete. You can also send a message to InterraTech from the data entry form.

Figure 9. Data Entry Form - Legend

Color Conventions

When you look at a data entry form, you'll notice that some of the field labels are displayed with pink background and some are yellow. You will also see that some field labels are displayed with bold type and others are normal. The chart below explains these conventions.

Pink Background

When the field labels of a record are displayed with a pink background, the record is required by the EDI transaction set. If you fail to enter data in the required fields of any of these records, the EDI transaction will fail translation, and no output will be created.

Yellow Background

When the field labels of a record are displayed with a yellow background, the record is not required by the EDI transaction set. You can skip all the fields in these records unless you need to convey this information to your trading partner or your trading partner requires it.

Blue Background

Looping records are surrounded by a box on the ezitrade data entry form. When the background color of the box is light blue, the loop is mandatory. When the background of the box is blank, the loop is optional. For more information, see the section entitled Looping Records found later in this document.

Bold type

Bold type indicates that the specific field is required within the record. If the record is mandatory (pink), you must enter data in all fields with bold type or the EDI transaction will fail translation. If the record is optional (yellow) you must enter data in all of the bold fields if you enter data in any of the fields of the record. Of course, since the record is optional, you can skip all of the fields if you want to.

Normal type

Normal type indicates that the field is optional. Whether the record is optional or mandatory, enter data in these optional fields only if you need to.

Immediate Transmission

When you complete a data entry form and click the Save button, the transaction is placed in an intermediate state called Pending. Ezitrade gives you the option to view, delete, check errors in, and make changes to pending transactions prior to translation. You specify that you are ready to queue all pending transactions for translation and transmission to the trading partner by clicking Close Batch and Submit at the bottom of the Pending Transaction form.

Normally, translation occurs three or four times a day on all queued transactions. Translated transactions are bundled into functional groups for transmission to the trading partner. If you need to transmit EDI data immediately to your partner, you can override the normal translation schedule.

At the top of each data entry form, you see the prompt Check here if the transaction requires immediate transmission to the trading partner. When you check this box, the transaction data entered in the form is translated and transmitted within 3 minutes of closing the batch and submitting it for translation. Note that the data in the form is not translated until you close the batch through the Pending Transaction form.

Note: There is an additional fee for sending transactions for immediate transmission.

EMAIL Questions

If you have questions or problems while entering data on a form, click on the icon shown below.

Figure 10. Question email button

Your message will be sent directly to an ezitrade support representative and will be addressed immediately, if possible.

Data Entry Conventions

Under the color-conventions table, the data entry forms lists conventions you need to follow while entering data on ezitrade. This table differs depending on the EDI standard used.

Entering Data

Records on an ezitrade data entry screen are shown as a group of fields proceeded by a heading. The heading describes the type of information in the record. The heading also displays a record identifier and whether the record is required or optional. Some of the fields on the screen are pre-filled to help speed up the data entry process. As you complete the data in each field, press the Tab key to move to the next.

Figure 11. ezitrade record

Repeating Records

When a record can repeat multiple times within an EDI transaction, ezitrade provides a button immediately following the last field of the record.

Figure 12. Change Number of Items Button

This button permits you to add additional records of the same type or delete the records that are currently displayed on the form.

Figure 13. Repeating Record Illustration

To add additional records of the same record type,

      Enter a number greater than the number of records displayed on the screen at the Total prompt.

      Click the Change Number of Items button.

Ezitrade refreshes the form, displaying the additional number of records you requested.

To delete records of the same record type,

      Enter a number smaller than the number of records displayed on the screen at the Total prompt.

      Click the Change Number of Items button.

Ezitrade refreshes the form, deleting the requested records from the last records entered. To determine the number of records to delete, ezitrade subtracts the number entered at the Total prompt from the number of records displayed on the screen. The deleted records are those immediately above the Change Number of Items button.

Note: You can only delete the last record(s) entered, that is the record(s) immediately above the Change Number of Items button.

Drop-Down Lists

Many of the fields in an EDI transaction are codes. Code fields require a value from a pre-defined list determined by the EDI standard or your trading partner. Wherever possible, ezitrade provides a list of the codes required by a specific field as well as a description of the code to help you make the right selection. When a list of values is provided, you will see the following icon displayed to the right of the field.

Figure 14. Drop-down List Button

When you click the icon, ezitrade displays a list of the allowable values.

Figure 15. Drop-down List

To select a value,

      Highlight the value you want and click the mouse button.

TIP To speed up entering data into a field on which there is a drop-down list, you can jump close to an item by typing the first letter. When you type a letter in a drop-down-list field, ezitrade jumps to the first entry in the list that starts with that letter. If you repeatedly type the letter, ezitrade cycles through all the entries that start with that letter. If there are a lot of entries that start with the same character, it is better to type the first character, then use the mouse to pick the one you want.

Looping records

Loops are records that repeat together as a whole within an EDI transaction. For example, purchase order line item information might contain a record with the item number and quantity ordered, one or more records for the item description, and records for multiple allowances on the item. All of these records repeat together for each item on the purchase order.

Records belonging to the same loop are surrounded on the ezitrade form by a box to show their relationship to each other. The color shading of the box illustrates if the loop is mandatory or optional. If the loop box is blue, at least the mandatory records (shown in darker pink) within the loop must be completed or the transaction will fail translation. If the loop box is blank, the entire loop is optional and can be skipped. If you enter any data in an optional loop, you must complete all of the mandatory records.

Figure 16. Looping records

Repeating records within the loop have the Change Number of Items button, described earlier, to permit you to add or delete records.

To add an iterations of the entire loop,

      Click the Change Number of Records button displayed below the loop box.

You can also delete the last iteration of the loop by clicking the Delete <record name> Record button.

To add additional records of the same record type,

      Enter a number greater than the number of times the loop currently repeats at the Total prompt.

      Click the Change Number of Items button.

Ezitrade refreshes the form, displaying the additional number of loop iterations you requested.

To delete iterations of the loop,

      Enter a number smaller than the number of times the loop currently repeats at the Total prompt.

      Click the Change Number of Items button.

Ezitrade refreshes the form, deleting the requested iterations of the loop from the last records entered. The deleted records are those immediately above the Change Number of Items button.

Note: You can only delete the last record(s) entered, that is the record(s) immediately above the Change Number of Items button.

Saving Transactions

When you are finished entering information for the EDI transaction, or if you want to save the information you are entering and finish the transaction later,

      Click the Save button at the bottom of the screen.

Figure 17. Save Button

When you click the Save button on a data entry form, the transaction is placed in Pending state. Ezitrade gives you the option to view, delete, and make changes to pending transactions. You can also check for errors and submit the batch for translation from the Pending Transactions Form. The Pending Transactions Form is described in the next section.

Reviewing Pending Transactions

Each time you click the Save button at the bottom of a data entry form, the transaction you have been working on becomes a "pending" transaction. To access this transaction again, you must use the Pending Transaction form.

Transactions in the pending state have not yet been translated and will not be sent to the trading partner until you check the batch for errors and close and submit the batch. These functions are described later in this section.

All of the transactions, displayed on the Pending Transaction form, are considered a batch. When you have pending transactions, you will see the following icon displayed at the top of the ezitrade Main Menu.

Figure 18. Pending Transaction Icon

To access the Pending Transaction form,

      Click the You have Pending transactions icon.

Figure 19. Pending Transaction form

The Pending Transaction form contains the following columns of information:

ID

This column lists the transaction identification number assigned by ezitrade.

Description

This column provides a further description to help you identify the transaction. The Description is derived from information contained in the transaction.

Posted

This column displays the date and time the transaction was posted to the pending transaction list. Immediate Delivery is displayed in this column under the date and time if you specified on the data entry form that you wanted immediate delivery of this transaction. Transactions with a "Y" in this column will be translated within three minutes of closing and submitting the batch. The other transactions will be translated at the regularly scheduled translation times.

Delete

This column allows you to delete the transaction from the pending transaction list.

 

From the Pending Transaction Form, you can perform any of the following tasks:

         Make changes to the transaction data.

         View or print the transaction data.

         Delete the transaction prior to sending it to your trading partner.

         Check for potential translation errors in any of the transactions in the batch.

         Close the batch and submit it for translation.

Change Transaction Data

To make changes to any of the transactions in the batch,

      Click on the transaction identification number in the ID column of the pending transaction form.

When you click the ID, the data entry form is displayed with all of the information you have already entered for this transaction. Make the necessary changes as you did when you created the transaction. When your changes are complete,

      Click the Save button at the bottom of the form.

Ezitrade returns to the main menu.

View or Print Transaction Data

To view or print any of the transactions in the batch,

      Click on the entry in the Description column of the pending transaction form.

When you click the Description, a form is displayed with the transaction information. To print the transaction information, use your browser's print function.

Delete the Transaction

To delete a transaction from the Pending Transaction list,

      Click the icon in the Delete column for the transaction you want to delete.

Ezitrade displays the following message:

      Click the Delete button or Back to cancel the delete operation.

Check for Errors

After you have made all of the required changes to the transactions listed on the Pending Transaction form, you must check for errors in the transactions prior to translating the batch. To check for errors,

      Click [Check Errors] displayed at the bottom of the transaction list.

When you click [Check Errors], ezitrade reviews the information you have entered for the transaction to make sure you have entered data in all of the required fields. Ezitrade provides a window listing all of the fields in which errors are found. Click the transaction ID in the ID column and make the necessary changes. When all of the forms are error-free, ezitrade displays the following message.

Figure 20. No Errors Found Form

When you see this message for the batch, you can close the batch and submit the transactions for translation.

Close Batch and Submit

You specify that you are ready to queue all pending transactions for translation and transmission to the trading partner by clicking [Close Batch and Submit] at the bottom of the Pending Transaction form. When you click [Close Batch and Submit], ezitrade queues all of the transactions in the batch (displayed on the Pending Transaction form) for translation at the appropriate time.

Normally, translation occurs three or four times a day for all queued transactions. Translated transactions are bundled into functional groups for transmission to the trading partner. If you have indicated on the data entry form that you want certain transactions transmitted immediately to your partner, translation and transmission will occur within 3 minutes of the time you clicked on [Close Batch and Submit]. This Immediate translation and transmission occurs for all transactions on which the Immediate Delivery flag is set.

After translation occurs, the transaction information is transferred to the ezitrade Outbound Transaction Report.

Rejected Transactions

If errors are found in your batch during translation, the following icon is displayed at the top of the Main Menu.

Figure 21. Rejected Transaction Icon

If you see this icon, it is very important that you take care of the problem because the transactions that were rejected by the translator have not been sent to the trading partner. To view rejected transactions,

      Click the You have Rejected Transactions icon.

The Recent Outbound Transaction form is displayed.

Figure 22. Rejected Outbound Transaction Form

The Rejected Outbound Transaction Form lists all outbound transactions. You will see "Translation Failed" for all transactions that have been rejected during translation. To fix the problem, click the transaction ID in the ID column for the transaction for which "transaction Failed" was listed. When you click the transaction ID, the following form is displayed.

Figure 23. Rejected Transaction Screen

The top of the form displays the translator error message with information to help you fix the problem. The bottom of the form shows the transaction data. To make changes to the transaction so that translation can occur,

      Click the yellow edit transaction button directly under the error information.

When you click the edit transaction button, the data entry form is displayed.

      Change the data as indicated in the error message.

      Click the Save button at the bottom of the form.

When you click Save, the transaction is placed in the Pending Transaction List. You must check and submit the batch just as you would for a new transaction.

The Edit Transaction button is always available when you review an outbound transaction.

        If the status of the transaction is To Be Sent, the transaction is removed from the translation queue and put back into the current batch. After you make changes to the transaction, you need to close and submit the batch to get the transaction back in the translation queue.

        If the status of the transaction is File Sent, Ack OK, or Ack Fail, the original transaction is duplicated. You can edit the duplicate transaction, save it in the current batch, and submit the batch for translation. The original transaction remains in the list of outbound transactions, but its status is changed to Ack Failed - Process or Re-processed.

See the section entitled Recent Outbound Transactions, later in this document for a description of each transaction status described above.

Acknowledgment Rejection

You will also see the You have Rejected Transactions icon when your trading partner has sent a functional acknowledgment for a transaction indicating that the transaction was rejected. These rejected transactions are displayed in the Recent Outbound Transactions form with a status of Acknowledged Fail.

You should correct the data in all transactions with Acknowledged Fail status as soon as possible, because this status indicates that your trading partner has not processed the information in the transaction. To correct a rejected transaction,

      Click the transaction ID in the ID column of a transaction with Acknowledged Fail status.

      Click on the edit transaction button on the Transaction Summary form

Ezitrade creates a duplicate transaction with the information from the original rejected transaction. The status of the original transaction is changed to Ack Fail - Processed.

      Make the necessary changes.

      Click the Save button at the bottom of the form.

When you click Save, the transaction is placed in the Pending Transaction List. You must check and submit the batch just as you would for a new transaction.
