Region Maintenance

The Region Maintenance tool allows you to define regions that can be assigned to vendors. Regions can be whatever works best for you: area codes, ZIP codes, geographical regions, etc.

Considerations for Regions

When creating your list of regions, you’ll need to consider the following:

  • What regions will you use to organize your vendors?
  • What IDs will you use to identify each region?

The Region Maintenance Part

When you select Manage | Region Maintenance, the corresponding part appears.

Description A description of the region.



ID Type the beginning of the ID or use the wildcard (%) to find certain region IDs.
