Manage contacts

Use the Contacts page to manage company and buyer contacts. NuORDER offers two display options: the new and the original contacts page.

Note: If your brand has company and buyer data integrated with an ERP, you may not be able to add, edit, or delete company or buyer data directly within NuORDER. Contact your admin to confirm if your brand is integrated and, therefore, editing is restricted.

Set your display option

From the left navigation menu, hover your mouse over your initials / name in the lower-left corner and select Edit Profile.

Edit Profile and Contacts option in left navigation menu.

Checkmark the New Contacts Page for the new display. Uncheck it for the original display. To confirm any changes to your profile, select Save.

For either view, select Contacts from the left navigation menu to manage your company and buyer contacts.

Create a buyer from a company or from the Contacts page.

Use the Create buyer screen to assign the Company name and Buyer’s Sales Rep, as well as enter the buyer’s name, email address, and any other pertinent information.

For integrated brands, the top of the Company name list displays the three companies most recently added to your ERP.

When you’re done, select Save buyer to contacts.

Create buyer

When you create a buyer, they'll receive an invitation to shop your brand in NuORDER. This is how the buyer will log into NuORDER to view your brand, and also where all Linesheets and orders will be sent. If the buyer doesn't already have a NuORDER login, then the email address you enter will become their username for logging in.

Tip: Double check that you've spelled everything right; if there's a mistake in the email address, they may never know you invited them to shop!

If you added a buyer with the incorrect email address, delete the incorrect buyer and add the correct one instead.

Note: Only the buyer can adjust their email address after they are added. They can adjust their email by editing their profile.

After you've added your buyer's information (name and email address), assign them to the appropriate sales rep or sales manager in the Buyer's Sales Reps field. If selecting more than one sales rep, choose which is the default. Keep in mind that selecting the buyer for an order automatically populates the order’s Sales Rep field with the buyer's Default Sales Rep or the sales rep who created the order. If the buyer has more than one sales rep, then another can be selected if preferred for that order.  

Note: You can select multiple Reps.

Select a buyer to review buyer information and orders. Select Edit Buyer (new) or Edit (original) to make changes.

Consider these key configurations when adding and editing addresses:

  • Address Type: Select Shipping, Billing, or both.
  • Display Name: Include a Display Name as a recognizable reference (examples: Billing or 3rd Street). Buyers see and use these names on their working orders.
  • Primary / Default: Addresses denoted as Primary (new) or Default (original) pre-populate in working orders for the associated company.
  • Shipping and Billing Codes: Address codes appear on order export spreadsheets.

Enter address information, while considering the above, and then Save (new) or Save Changes (original).
