Prioritize Vendors

Business Central 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 Suggest Vendor Payments.

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

To prioritize vendors

  1. Choose the Lightbulb that opens the Tell Me feature. 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.

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 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.
