Set up and maintain custom attributes

These attributes are custom attributes that are associated with one of the following classes:

  • Supplier
  • Supplier Address
  • Contract
  • Buying Account
  • Buying Account Address

You start by choosing the class from the drop-down list.

Each attribute has a Name. This can be up to 50 characters long. Once you've entered a name, click Add Attribute to add the record to the list of Custom Attributes.

Click edit to complete or edit additional details. 

Data Type

Choose from:

  • Text - This is for any text-based attribute. You can include numbers, but they are not formatted in any particular way. 
  • Number (Whole/Integer) - This is for whole numbers; that is, without decimal places.
  • Number (Decimal/Double) - This is for numbers with decimal places.
  • Yes/No - This is for attributes that are defined by a yes or no response.
  • Date - This is for a date attribute, such as a manufacturing date, use-by date, target date, and so on.
  • Choice (Dropdown list) - This is for attributes where a choice is given in the form of a drop-down list. You get to specify the choices available in the Choices field.
  • Multi-Selection Choice - this is for attributes where more than one choice can be made.
Mandatory Set this option if the attribute is mandatory. That is, it must be specified for the item. If the option is clear the attribute is optional.
Default Value Type a default value for the attribute. This is particularly relevant to 'Choice'  or 'Yes/No' attributes. It's optional, but if you enter a default, it will appear as the attribute value initially and the customer has the option of changing it.
Choices For drop-down list or multi-choice data type attributes, type the choices available in the box, separating each choice with a semi-colon.
Minimum Length Enter the minimum number of characters required for text and number attributes. If you leave this blank, there is no minimum, so a blank entry is permitted unless the Mandatory option is set.
Maximum Length Enter the maximum number of characters required for text and number attributes. This can be up to 4,000.
Display Position Choose the sort position for the attribute within the list of attributes.

If you want to delete an attribute, click Delete this Attribute

When you have finished creating or editing the attribute details, click Modify Attribute.
