How to Add Vendors from the Manage Vendors Page
To add a vendor, go to Locations > Select Your Location > Vendors.
From there, you will see the existing vendors associated with that location. To add a new vendor, click the “Add a Vendor” button.’’
From the new pop-up, enter your desired vendor name.
Next, you’ll need to choose the vendor type you want to create. If you already have a vendor you’d like to use to create another one, you can select “Copy from an Existing Vendor.” Otherwise, make sure “A Blank Vendor” is selected. Then, click “Add.”
Make sure to add the vendor’s name and contact information. This is important so everyone on your team can easily get in touch with your vendors and ensure tasks and purchase orders can be shared appropriately.
When you’ve added all of the information, click outside of the vendor viewer to exit.
