Suppliers can be invited by users with the Community Administrator or Community Supplier Administrator roles by going to the Administration module > Suppliers > Invitations tab.
If you only have one or two suppliers you would like to add, this method may be easier than uploading them using a CSV file, which is ideal for bulk entries.
Manually Inviting Suppliers
- Navigate to the Invitations tab. You will be able to customize your message that is included in the invitation, This allows you to include any important information that suppliers should know while registering. You can also click Preview, Help or Save.
- Preview will show you how your message will look to suppliers.
- Help gives you extra information about the formatting options.
- Save will permanently save your message for the next time you send an invitation to suppliers.
- Click Enter a supplier manually and a pop up window will appear to enter the suppliers details.
- Click Add after you have entered the details or Add More if you want to enter another suppliers information.
- When all the suppliers have been uploaded successfully click OK.
- Once the invitations are sent the registration status of the suppliers can be tracked from the Invitations tab.
To resend an invitation to a supplier who has not yet accepted their invitation to register, find the supplier under the list of suppliers in Invitations. You can filter only the suppliers who have not yet accepted by selecting New in the state filter and clicking Search. To resend the invitation check the box next to the suppliers and click Resend.
