Supplier registration workflow


Hi everybody,

got a couple of questions regarding the Supplier Management feature.

1. What exactly does the 'Supplier field access definition' feature does? If I look at a presentation of Wave 6, it seems as if a field access configuration can be linked to a supplier phase to define which fields are editable or not. We are working on version 7 but we cannot seem to find a way to link both.

2. We want to have a custom workflow (with multiple approval steps) after suppliers have registered via the registration form. We created a supplier type and linked a phase configuration (with multiple phase configured) to it. In the supplier type, the checkbox 'Automatically advance to first status(phase) Requiring Approval' is checked. However, when a supplier registers, it doesn't appear anywhere. We can't find the new supplier anywhere (also not in the 'Supplier Registration Request' channel).

When we remove the phase configuration in the supplier type and register a new supplier, it does appear in the channel.

How can we solve this? Do we need to create 2 supplier types: one for registration and one for the workflow. Once the supplier is registered, change the supplier type and activate the workflow or....
