Topic:   Importing Inventory - Supplier Name

I'm in the process of moving over to Minimrp and I'm working through some trial processes. I've imported our inventory from a csv file, and all is OK except in the Complete Inventory Listing the Supplier name has been truncated to four digits, an underscore, and then 001. For example supplier Digikey becomes Digi_001. Is it possible to avoid this and show the supplier name as it is?

If you go to the Contacts menu or look at or create a purchase order you will see that the full supplier's name is there. So names have been fully imported.

But MiniMRP also creates an abbreviated name as a, kind of, 'Account ID' for each supplier. That short name is what it displays in some lists and buttons where the full name wouldn't fit. For example in that full inventory listing.

But I think it might be useful if we modify the software to show the full name by default and the shorter 'ID' as an option.

I'll put this into the suggestion box.

Thanks, yes I think making it optional would be a good idea.
