Episode 42: Send a Notification to Vendors After Updates in the Vendor Master File

Each time I make a change to any of my personal accounts online, I receive a notification that at a minimum, says a change was made to my account and if I didn’t initiate the change, to contact them (hopefully not via a link in the email). Some sites go as far as preventing the change unless I confirm through email or go to the account and change a setting first (thanks Google :-)).

Coming up next how you can implement the same in your Vendor Setup & Maintenance Process.
