RTA Web Parts - Vendor Tab

Adding vendors is an important aspect of the part file. This tab displays the vendors where a particular part can be purchased from. Multiple vendors can be applied to a part file and arranged in the preferred order.

For example, Part 1234 may have Vendor A and Vendor B listed in the part file. Vendor A is listed as the primary vendor because that vendor has the best price or the fastest delivery time. Either way, Vendor A is the first choice for orders. Vendor B is a secondary vendor that can be used when necessary.

This article covers the fields found in the vendor tab.

  • Each vendor entered into a part file will be displayed within its own panel

  • Vendor hierarchy can be adjusted by drag and drop. For example, if Vendor 2 is desired as the primary, click and hold the vendor 2 line and drag and drop it above Vendor 1.

    • The label of primary and secondary on the line item will update automatically

  • New vendors can be added by clicking the Link Vendor option

  • Click on any of the assigned vendor panels to view full vendor details
