How do I receive notifications for new items in my inbox?
All users may set up email notifications from the 'preferences' menu (mouse over 'preferences' click 'edit preferences'), enter the email address and click save.
Why do some items delivered to my inbox appear with errors?
Errors appearing in the inbox are usually due to a missing ship to/ship from relationship not yet set up by your buyer organization. Clicking the error icon (red stop sign) will display the ship to/ship from codes, please contact your buyer to verify that this relationship has been created.
Why do I receive "insufficient privileges" errors?
All users must be assigned the appropriate privileges within supplier connection (view, create, delete, send documents). Check with your supplier connection administrator to verify the correct privileges have been assigned to your user ID, and that you have been assigned to the appropriate ship to location.
No items appear on the 'part' screen of the inbox. Why?
You need to set the 'filter' on the part screen to include the date range/locations that should appear here.
Why I can't print my Purchase orders or Request for Quote?
Your User ID is not authorized to print these items. Contact your Supplier Connection Administrator for additional roles assigned to your user ID.
When I click the print icon to view my release, it does not appear?
Ensure you do not have a pop-up blocker running, as the release will display in a new window in .pdf format.
