Add a Supplier

To create a new Supplier, go to the Suppliers module and select +Add from the toolbar above the list of suppliers. The new supplier window opens on the Details tab.
Complete the fields to capture the supplier information. Some fields can be set to compulsory in the Supplier Settings.

When you select Save on the Supplier record, icons will appear that enable you to view details or contact people.
- The arrow icon takes you to your email account to send an email or to a webpage

Examples: Why it's important to enter address fields correctly
It is important to enter details in the correct fields as these flow through to address labels and reports. Examples below show formatting when fields are incorrectly used.
In this example, New Zealand is in the City/Town field, and Wellington appears as a suburb. Instead, New Zealand should be in the Country field down below, and Wellington should be in the City/Town field.
In this example, the City/Town field is empty, which will display on labels as a blank space next to the postcode. Auckland should be in the City/Town field.
In this example, the City/Town, Postcode, and Country fields are empty. Although the address appears to display correctly, it's more accurate to complete the right fields to ensure all records are consistent.
The Business Details allow you to provide additional information to categorise the supplier and add any notes that might be relevant. Select Save to save the new supplier record.
The Supplier account is created with multiple tabs that allow recording of additional information.
