How to manage suppliers proposals?
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:
- for the product model values
- 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.
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.
