Users with the Community Administrator or Community Supplier Administrator role can manage suppliers. Community suppliers can be managed from the Administration module > Suppliers > Manage Suppliers tab. Administrator can add and remove suppliers from the community, assign buyer groups to their suppliers, update community supplier records, search the Unimarket Directory and invite suppliers to join the marketplace.
|Note: The email listed for Supplier Profile Changes will be notified when suppliers make any updates to their profile.|
The Manage Suppliers screen provides an overview of the suppliers enabled within the community, including the status of the supplier registration, if they have provided the information requested and their current state. It also provides the ability to search your suppliers.
The columns included in the supplier list are:
|Supplier||The Supplier ID (or Vendor ID) for your finance system.
This is used to match orders and invoices to the correct Vendor in your system.
|Supplier ID||The Supplier ID (or Vendor ID) for your finance system. This is used to match orders and invoices to the correct Vendor in your system.|
|Requirements||Communities can request specific information from suppliers when they register. Communities can decide if they want to connect the supplier to their community or if they want to wait until all the requirements are complete. (To view the status you can hover over the Requirements column for the specified supplier.)|
|State||The State indicates if the supplier is Connected, Disconnected or Pending with the community. (The supplier must be connected for trading to occur. The list of suppliers will be filtered for Connected suppliers by default.)|
|Type||The type identifies if a supplier is Premium, Registered, or Lite.|
|Last Supplier Update||The date when the supplier last updated their details in Unimarket.|
|Last Community Update||The date when the community last updated the supplier details in Unimarket.|
