Provider status automatically changes to active

IT NAKOM 2 years ago in Vendor Portal updated by Łukasz Kaleta (Senior Customer Success Manager) 2 years ago 3

We have been thinking that it would be a good idea to have the status of the Vendors changed as happen with the Clients' status. That way, every vendor who has already collaborated with your company would have the status of "Active" unless you change it (because s/he is no longer active or because you had a bad experience with that vendor or his/her data is incomplete).

What do you think? How do you deal with vendors status? We think it is a waste of time to change it manually to active as, if we have just worked with that provider, it is sure s/he is active!

Thank you!



We wouldn't like this kind of change. We prefer to change the status to active manually, as a provider needs to fulfil some requirements to get this status (number of jobs, evaluation etc.). Before active status we use waiting for approval, so our PMs know which providers are still being tested.


We would not like that either - we use the various statuses during the various recruitment stages. I think if you are assigning projects to "potential" vendors you are skipping steps in the process.  

There is always the option of giving any vendor who signs up the "Active" status in the settings, if that is what you need.
