Prioritise Suppliers

Business Central can suggest various payments to suppliers, for example, payments that will be due soon or payments where a discount is available. For more information, see Suggest Supplier Payments.

First, you must prioritise your suppliers by assigning numbers to them.

To prioritise suppliers

  1. Choose the Lightbulb that opens the Tell Me feature. icon, enter Suppliers, and then choose the related link.
  2. Select the relevant supplier, and then choose Edit.
  3. In the Priority field, enter a number.

Business Central considers the lowest number, except 0, to have the highest priority. So, for example, if you use 1, 2, and 3, then 1 will have the highest priority.

If you do not want to prioritise a supplier, leave the Priority field blank. Then, if you use the payment suggestion feature, the supplier will be listed after all the suppliers that have a priority number. You can enter as many priority levels as necessary.
