How to: Prioritize Vendors

Dynamics 365 can suggest various payments to vendors, for example, payments that will be due soon or payments where a discount is available. For more information, see How to: Suggest Vendor Payments.

First, you must prioritize your vendors by assigning numbers to them.

To prioritize vendors

  1. Choose the Search for Page or Report icon, enter Vendors, and then choose the related link.
  2. Select the relevant vendor, and then choose Edit.
  3. In the Priority field, enter a number.

Dynamics 365 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 prioritize a vendor, leave the Priority field blank. Then, if you use the payment suggestion feature, the vendor will be listed after all the vendors that have a priority number. You can enter as many priority levels as necessary.
