- The current list of suppliers will be displayed
- Add the name of the supplier in the Add New Supplier field.
- Click the save button.
Inventory Supply Items
Each supply item used by your company to service your clients must be added to JM. Once the supply item is added to JM, each supply item usage can be recorded.

- Select the Add New Supply Item
- After adding the required information, as shown above, select the Save button
Supplies need to be assigned to Customers in order to be used in supply requests. Follow the instructions below to assign supply items to the Customers who utilize those supplies.
- Click the Assignment Tab
- Choose which customers to assign the item to
- You may either assign the item to ALL customers via the checkbox above the table or only assign the item to specific customers by clicking +Assign on the appropriate customer in the Actions column.
- If a supply item is not assigned to a location, it will not be available on the supply request form in the JM Connect app. This simplifies the app and prevents requests for incorrect supplies.
What is a Paper Item? (Consumables)
Paper items are Consumable supplies. Marking a supply item as a "paper item" means the system will consider it a consumable.
