Purchase Profiles

Purchase Profiles are used to restrict the items a body shop can order through CollisionLinx. Each detail line adds items the shop is allowed to order. Only items in the selected customer's Purchase Profile, or Customer Inventory, can be ordered in CollisionLinx.

1. Select the Add New button.

The detail lines are what adds items to a purchase profile. The detail lines can be product groups, manufacturers, product lines or individual items.

2. Select the Search button. The desired profile will appear in the search results grid.

3. Select the Edit link next to the desired purchase profile.

The test button is designed to tell the user how many items the purchase profile will allow the customer to purchase. It will only give an overall quantity, not the specific items.

Once the purchase profile is complete, select the Test button to see how many items the profile will include.
