Overview

For companies that use the Vendor Availability integration, there are several options you can establish, depending on your company needs and operations.

How to set them up

Go to Setup>>Settings.

 Click on Vendor Availability Settings

 Check the option Vendor Availability. Besides of activating this option, your company must contact our team to proceed with VA and K2K integrations.

 Once you do it, the system will display several options which are explained below.

 

 

 

Autoconfirm Staging Area

By enabling this option, the system will confirm automatically the products already mapped provided that they have product pack set up.

Skip Product Pack Validation

By enabling this option will allow confirming the products from the Staging Area, even if they don't have product pack set up.

Show Aging Filter

Enabling this option, the system will allow filtering by aging while adding products from Vendor Availability to a Prebook or a Standalone PO.

Show Postharvest Filter

By enabling this option, the system will allow filtering by postharvest while adding products from Vendor Availability to a Prebook or a Standalone PO.

Uploading Mode

This option allows selecting the way you want the product availability to behave. There are two options available:

  • Increase Availability: Select this option if you want the system to increase the product quantity every time a CSV file is uploaded. All vendor availabilities are uploaded; however, if within the same CSV file or any future CSV file, the vendor has a product with the same product description, availability date and post harvest, the system will add this amount to the original or previously uploaded amount. An example of how the system will behave is: if within the same CSV file or a future uploaded file the criteria mentioned above was met, and 100 units were originally uploaded then an additional 200 units where upload afterward, the new total amount available would be 300. In order to have this option enabled, Komet Sales Support must be contacted
  • Overwrite Previous: Select this option if you want the system to replace the previous product quantity uploaded. All vendor availabilities are uploaded; however, if within the same CSV file or any future CSV file, the vendor has a product with the same product description, availability date and post harvest, the system will override the originally uploaded amount with the latest amount uploaded. This could cause a product to be oversold if for example 500 units were originally uploaded and sold, and then, 400 units with the same criteria were uploaded afterward. The 400 will override the 500 originally uploaded, causing 100 unit shortage or oversell. Please keep in mind that by default this is the option that is used.

Keep in mind that your vendors will be able to modify this option for their own availability.

Apply Default Price List Upon Upload

By enabling this option, the system will apply prices entered in the Default Price List to Vendor Availability products once they are confirmed from the Staging Area to the Available Items screen. This option only applies if the Price Lists setting is enabled. For further information about pricing of Vendor Availability products, read Vendor Availability Pricing. The season that will apply is the one that matches with the available from date of the product.

Keep in mind that this option does not apply for K2K products.

Enable Cutting Process as Vendor Availability

By enabling this option, the system will save the information entered in the Cut Process through tablet devices as Vendor Availability. Leaving this option unchecked, the system will store the information as Inventory in Units. Once this option is enabled, the system will enabled the option Days of Tolerance to Confirm Cut Product. The system will replace any availability previously uploaded based on the days entered there.
