How to: Enable a Catalog and Link a Vendor in Manager

For video instruction on how to do this, see the following. A step-by-step walkthrough is also included in this article below the video. 

 

 

 

Step 1: Turning the catalog on

  • Navigate to Configurations (SE) or Setup (5.9) along the top of the program.
  • Next go to Special Maintenance (you have to be on the HOMESCREEN of the program in order for the Special maintenance button to light up).
  • Select Toggle Catalog Availability.

 

 

 

 

In this example the FirstCall catalog has been turned on, but you can choose to toggle any vendor needed.

  • Select the Vendor Type.
  • Enter the name of the vendor.
  • Select the Setup Link at the bottom of the window.
