Use supplier codes

The Code field for suppliers is completely optional. It can be used for several purposes, including:

  • Distinguishing suppliers with identical names
  • Annotating different departments or ordering centers at a single supplier (with each department being created as a distinct supplier)
  • Assigning suppliers to regions, purchasing personnel, or facilities

Assign a supplier code

When creating or editing a supplier in the Suppliers tab, enter any combination of letters or numbers in the Code field:

By default, the supplier’s code will be shown on printed documents next to supplier’s name:

The code will also show in the Suppliers listing and can be entered as a search parameter in other tabs:

Removing the supplier code from documents

If you wish to remove the supplier code from completed forms, edit the theme used to display them. While viewing the theme’s computer code, find the line using the variable {{ recipient.code }}. This is a placeholder variable that inserts the supplier code into your documents. To hide the supplier code, simply remove {{ recipient.code }} from your theme. Leave the rest of the line it was in unchanged.

After you save your new or modified theme, the supplier code will no longer show.
