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 click the Add Vendor line

  • Clicking on that panel will open up the vendor details

  • Clicking the “edit button” when the vendor panel is expanded allows the user to edit some of the vendor detail fields. The list below shows all fields in the expanded vendor panel and those that are editable have a (blue star)

    • (blue star) Vendor Position - Editable by drag and drop method explained above
