Distribution List

SAP Fieldglass uses Distribution Lists to ensure the proper routing of job postings to suppliers.

A distribution list is a structured list of suppliers that is included on a job posting and lists the suppliers who should receive that request to fill a position. The lists can contain a single supplier or multiple suppliers who can be grouped by level of distribution based on the buyer company’s business needs.

The Distribution tab of a job posting will display the suppliers that the job posting has been sent to.

Navigating the Distribution List Admin Object

Select the Distribution List admin object from the Supplier section of the admin menu to view the distribution lists established for WorkingNet. 

Create a Distribution List

Business Example

WorkingNet decides to create a new distribution list around consulting so that the correct Suppliers receive their requests to fill consulting related jobs.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, you will need to create the new distribution list and manually associate a business unit to it.
