Supplier

Suppliers are not added to a buyer tenant in the same manner as other data objects. Instead, suppliers are responsible for creating their own tenants and are connected to buyer tenants after being invited and onboarded.

The Supplier section of the admin menu, then, does not allow you to create supplier records. It is, instead, where you would go to view and edit supplier records.

Navigating the Supplier Admin Object

Select the Supplier admin object from the Supplier section of the admin menu to view the list of the suppliers that are associated to the WorkingNet tenant.

Editing a Supplier

A large portion of the information on the Supplier page is controlled by the Supplier.

Buyers are limited to editing only certain details, such as how the Supplier will invoice the Buyer, the services the Supplier provides, and who will pay the MSP fees.

Scroll through the Supplier Edit screen below to see the supplier information that is editable.

Inactivating a Supplier

Buyers may have the need to inactivate a Supplier if the supplier is no longer servicing their company or if their vendor contact is out of office and does not want to receive new postings while away.

By using the Inactivate a Supplier function, vendors will stop receiving new job postings for a designated amount of time. Suppliers can be inactivated indefinitely or on a temporary basis.

Inactivate a Supplier

WorkingNet no longer works with a supplier called Resource Group.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, you must inactivate Resource Group so that it no longer receives Work Items relating to Job Postings or SOWs.
