Vendor requests - external request to become a new vendor Dynamics AX 2012 provided the ability for an anonymous user to sign up to be a vendor in the system, which could lead to a vendor request for adding a new vendor to the vendor master. In version 7.3, the anonymous request from a prospective vendor can be imported via an entity (Data Management/OData), which can lead to inviting the vendor - or the vendor's contact person - to register more details about the prospective vendor. The information provided is included in a new vendor request that can be reviewed and approved via a workflow process. An approval of the vendor request leads to creation of a new vendor account. Implemented in version 7.3
Vendor requests in general Dynamics AX 2012 had a concept of vendor requests that served various purposes related to updating vendor-related information, such as requesting new procurement categories for the vendor, internal employees requesting new vendors, or requesting to add a vendor to another company. Only the vendor's request of being added as a vendor has been implemented in version 7.3. Not implemented
