Ability to enter Vendor ID on FE NXT

In the database view there is an option to add the Vendor ID, but if we use FE NXT there's not option, this will save us time and FE NXT should have the same tools as database view.

    We have a need for autogeneration of Vendor ID for MOST vendors but like many institutions, certain vendor id's need to be specific. Please make the field editable and fillable either way.

    Hi - the Vendor ID field is only available when IDs are not already being automatically generated.

    I suspect you have this auto-generation setting turned on. To check, navigate to database view and then find the Business Rules for Vendor in Accounts Payable (AP > Configuration > Business Rules > Vendor). The first option should be a checkbox to "Automatically generate Vendor Ids starting with: [number]."

    If you uncheck this box and then log back in to webview, you should see the Vendor ID field on the Vendor form.

    And if you have a use case for being able to automatically generate Vendor IDs AND change them, please let me know!
