Re: Suppliers on products v8by
Jordi, my question really surrounds the procurement process. If I make a procurement request for a product that procurement method is by, I must have a supplier associated with that product so the purchase order can be populated with the suppliers name.

John,With purchase requests you don't really need a supplier defined in the product, because the purchase request is independent of supplier, and you only choose the supplier when you translate the purchase request to a PO.That way, the suppliers defined in the product form are left to be used just to define specific price/quantity agreements for that supplier-product.On Tue, Feb 16, 2016 at 12:46 PM, John Pia Jr <email@example.com> wrote:
I was wondering if anyone knew of a module out there that would automatically add the supplier to the product record when a purchase order is generated for that product from a specific supplier.
For example, if I have product A, with no suppliers listed ( on the product form view), and then generate a purchase order listing supplier X as the supplier, when I go back to the form view for product I would like there 2 be a line automatically generated listing supplier acts as a possible supplier for this product.
Is this possible?
We are often purchasing the same product from different suppliers., Rather than having to require our purchasing department to manually update the listing of suppliers on any given product, I would like this to be done automatically based on purchase orders generated for that product.
