If you have discussed with your account manager and turned the Catalog Approval feature on, you will have access to more catalog vetting ability.
An email notification is sent to the Supplier Comments email address and any user with the Catalog Reviewer role when a new catalog is created or when an update is made to an existing catalog alerting the users that a review is needed.
Accepting/Declining New Catalogs:
New catalogs will show a Review State of “New Catalog” and Availability of “Needs Review”. Clicking on Actions > View will bring up all the products in the catalog to review. Click on the More Actions button in the top right hand side of the catalog to go to Settings and assign buyer groups or to export all the draft products.
Clicking Accept will cause a window to pop up prompting you to assign Buyer Groups to this catalog and confirm the acceptance of this catalogue.
Clicking Decline will cause a window to pop up requesting you add a note on why you are declining the catalog and requesting confirmation that it is being declined.
Accepting New Drafts to Catalogs that are already open:
When a supplier sends updates to their catalog for you to review, the review state will read "Accepted (New Draft)." Click Actions > View to review the changes to the catalog. The tab Draft Products will list the changes proposed with an up or down arrow next to each product line indicating a price increase or decrease.
Clicking on the name of the product will take you to the View Product Details page. The changes made to the product will be highlighted in yellow.
If a new catalog is approved a notification will be sent to the supplier letting them know the catalog will be available once a buyer group is added. If a catalog or catalog update is declined, the supplier will also be alerted of the declined action and to check the comments for the catalog for more information.
