You can add any existing contact as a contact point for the selected supplier.

define if the quoted period is in working days or calendar days, and define if the supplier considers
the last day of the week as being a Friday or Saturday.

Default Carrier
In this field, we can select one other supplier that is known as a "Carrier."

Carrier Information
We can define whether the supplier "Provides transport services” in which case we can make this supplier a "Carrier" and register carrier information like shipping percentage, minimum freight value, logistics percentage, and if this will be a calculated percentage on the basis of the sale value or purchase value.

Items tab

User-added image

In this tab, we have access to the item list referenced to this supplier and quick access to a specific item of this list via the  User-added image icon.

 Operations tab

User-added image

In this tab, we can add an increase or a discount that will automatically be applied when quoting this supplier’s items. The operations are added with the User-added image  icon, and can be made by amount, percentage, or factor. Furthermore, the "Operation" can be set to Active/Inactive or Hidden/Shown in the deal.

Note: Hidden/shown operations will control if we see this operation in the "Operation" tab on the "Deal" screen or if it will be in the "Hidden Operations" (in the same tab). Most important, hidden operations won’t show in any custom document tag, meaning that they won’t appear in the quote, as opposed to "Shown Operations."
