Editing an Existing Vendor (Supplier)

The following instructions are for adding a new address to a vendor (supplier) or reactivating an existing vendor (supplier) record, using the KFS Vendor document. 


Process Overview

Complete the instructions as outlined below for the KFS Vendor document.  When completed, click the submit button, and the document will automatically route to Supplier Services. The initiator of the Vendor document will receive an FYI of the document in their KFS Action List when the vendor (supplier) record has been updated, with the new changes in effect.


Adding a New Address

Before adding a new address, please note the following reasons to NOT add a new address, if all other information for the address matches an existing address:

  • Adding a customer number: there is a separate tab for that on the KFS Requisition document, so it can be added independent of the address
  • Slight difference in the name: common occurrences are full name vs. acronym, with/without business designation (e.g., INC, LLC)
  • Attention lines

1.  From the KFS Main Menu, open the Vendor document. On the Document Overview Tab:

  • Complete the Description field
  • This is a required field for all KFS documents.
  • Insert a basic description, such as “Updating vendor record to add new Sacramento address”.

2.  Address tab:

  • Address Type: Select the type that corresponds to how you plan to use this address (e.g., PO for purchasing, Remit for payment).

  • Vendor Address Name: Does not have to be the same as the Vendor name, if they are doing business under another name – but you should always confirm that it is the same business.

  • Address Lines

    • Minimum for US address: Address 1, City, State, Postal Code; use other fields as needed.
    • Minimum for Foreign: Address 1, City and Country; use other fields as needed
    • Use official USPS abbreviations and avoid punctuation (e.g., use PO BOX, not P.O. BOX).
  • Vendor Phone Number: Required for each address.

  • Vendor Email Address: Required for each address.

  • Click add Button

    • Click the add button in order to add the address to the record.
    • Continue to create as many addresses as needed.

3.  Click the submit button at the bottom of the document.

3. Document Overview tab:

  • Complete the Description field
    • This is a required field for all KFS documents.
    • Insert a basic description, such as “Reactivating vendor record to use for upcoming purchase”.

4.  Vendor tab:
