Now that you have created an audit, it is time to define the audit's content.
After creating an audit, you will be redirected to a page with basic audit settings.
- Check the settings that you have just set.
- Enter a signal date. On this date a reminder about the audit will be sent to the notification user.
- Choose which parts you want to request from the supplier. Click to move the slider to the left (off) or to the right (on).
It is important to know that all changes made by the supplier will only be implemented once you have approved the audit manually through an audit workflow.
These are the basic data of the supplier in Vendors. With this you give the supplier the option to view, check and possibly adjust the currently registered name and address data
These are the registered contacts of this supplier in Vendors. The supplier can add, edit and delete contacts.
This is documentation linked to checklist items at the supplier. You can view the current checklist items from a supplier by navigating to Vendors > Suppliers > Choose supplier > Documents > Checklist items. The supplier can upload new documents to the checklist of items that are linked to them.
These are contract products that are linked to contracts from the supplier in the audit. The supplier can view and edit the validity period of the products. In addition, the supplier can offer new products and indicate whether they no longer deliver a certain product.
The supplier gains insight into the categories that are linked to them in the Vendors module. They have the option to add and remove categories.
You can send surveys to the supplier. They complete these surveys and you can then assess them. You need to create these surveys in advance in Vendor Rating > Settings > Survey templates. In Lesson 2, Lesson 3, Lesson 4 and Lesson 5 of "Getting Started with: Vendor Rating" you can see exactly how to prepare a Survey Template.
No valid period
When this option is active, no validity date will be given with the audit. This means that the audit does not expire. So no expired status of the audit will appear in Vendors.
In addition, we also have a very informative VendorLink Academy video that explains survey templates in detail.
