#How to manage suppliers proposals?

#Products

When a product is completed for a locale on the Supplier Onboarder, you receive a proposal in your PIM. For example, when all attributes defined as required for the channel Onboarder on a specific locale are filled in by the supplier. At that moment, the product status is Waiting for approval for the supplier. After you approve or reject a product, the product status is updated to Approved or Rejected for the supplier.

A product gets the status Approved when all its values are accepted. Otherwise, if you reject at least one of the attributes, the product is marked as Rejected.

A product updated by one of your suppliers will never impact directly your PIM. A review step is mandatory so that you can evaluate the proposal.

You can review the suggestions made by suppliers in the PIM proposals.

Each time you make a comment on a proposal, the supplier can see it on its product view.

#Product models with variants

Product models with variants are specific type of products you can receive proposals for. You can receive proposals in two different cases:

  1. for the product model values
  2. for the product variant values

For the product model values, you receive a proposal:

  • the first time the supplier completes a product variant with its parent product model,
  • and then each time a product model is updated.

For the product variant values, you receive a proposal each time a supplier completes or updates a product variant.

Statuses on product models are not yet available, we are working on it.

#Assets

When new assets are suggested by suppliers, they are included in the proposals and automatically added to the right asset collection when the new product is accepted.
