Product Help Banner.png



The six-step Add New Supplier wizard guides you through the supplier creation process. Steps 1 and 2 of the Wizard are mandatory. You can cancel the supplier creation at any time during the Wizard by clicking Cancel. After you have completed Step 2, you can save the supplier and close the Wizard by clicking Finish. The supplier will be created using the information entered in the wizard. You can later add to or edit these details on the Supplier page.


When you are working through the Wizard, if any mandatory fields have not been completed you will not be able to proceed to the next step. A warning icon File:dirname/pm/030_Suppliers/140_How+To.../220_How+to+create+a+supplier/Warning_icon.gif will be placed next to the mandatory fields that need to be completed. Complete these fields and then click Next to proceed.
