Pre-launch meeting questions

Will this meeting be recorded and if so, where could I find the link with the recording?
  • This meeting is recorded and a link will be provided on the upgrade information page.
Will the address vendor.iowaabd.com still work?
  • Yes.  The site’s url will be changing but if you use vendor.iowaabd.com it will redirect you to the new url shop.iowaabd.com.
Do we need to change any user name, password, or any other things from our side?
  • The one thing you may need to update is changing your password to a secure one. Secure passwords should:
    • Be at least 8 characters long
    • Have at least 1 uppercase and 1 lowercase letters.
    • Have at least 1 number and 1 symbol - #, $, !, etc.
    • If your old password is already secure, you should be able to use it again.
If we have multiple people using the same account, do we have to migrate multiple times?
  • This meeting is recorded and a link will be provided shortly.
  • Each account only needs to be migrated once.
  • If you have multiple people using the same account, you can continue doing that, or you can add new accounts after the initial migration.  Check out the vendor guide section on sub-addressing for information on how to use the same email address with multiple accounts.
How often is "Current Inventory" updated?
  • It is updated dynamically in real-time.
If A product is an old label would we have the opportunity to update it here?
  • Go to the Products Quote section. Select “Create Quote” and choose the Quote Type: 'Image/Label Change'.
  • The approval process remains the same.
Has the PO upload template changed? Portal shows csv upload but have been using xlsx file
  • Yes. We recommend you download the new P.O. Upload Template.
Is Requested Delivery Date required in the new template?
  • You add the requested date to the form, not the template.  The date is required.
