Topic:   V5 has Supplier but no Manufacturer?

I'm evaluating. I don't see where a manufacturer or a part can be listed.
Typically there is a supplier, a manufacturer and even a distributor.
For an internal part, there may also be multiple suppliers and a supplier may often have multiple manufacturers. Am i missing this functionality in V5?

If you click the small arrow next to a supplier you can set as a manufacturer.

In the menu on the left of the program window you see the 'Contacts' menu. There you can add your suppliers, their names, addresses and contact details etc.

In the Item detail window - that's the window where you can edit an item's description etc - you see a row of tabs across the middle of the window. One of those tabs is 'Suppliers'. Using that dialog you can connect any number of suppliers to the item. An item can have an unlimited number of suppliers. You can also define one of those suppliers as the Manufacturer. When you do that a new column appears with the text MFR. So an supplier can also be the manufacturer allowing you to purchase direct from from the manufacturer if you want.
