Hi all, I was exploring Vendor Collaborations feature in MS Dynamics 365 for finance and operations. I found excellent and comprehensive blog post of Galyna Fedorova, worth to share.

Vendor collaboration is a process where you, as a company, grant the access to your vendors in order to perform the following:
  • review, accept, and reject request for quotations (RFQs)
  • review, accept, reject, accept with the changes purchase orders (POs)
  • perform vendor invoicing
  • work with consignment stock
Since Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations is web-based application, you can easily allow vendors work directly in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations without having EDI. Setup You would need to complete the following configuration prior working with it. Vendor collaboration setup Let’s review those settings. Information for vendors responding to POs Navigate to Procurement and sourcing > Setup > Vendor collaboration > Information for vendors responding to POs Click New to create new response. Select Type of response. Type in the Information message in the Details section. Information for vendors responding to POs User workflows Navigate to System administration > Workflow > User workflows. Create new workflow with the Vendor user request (new user or modify user) type. The below is an example of the workflow that is configured for the Contoso demo data. User workflows Vendor setup Navigate to Accounts payable > Vendors > All vendors. On the General FastTab select value in the Collaboration activation field. The possible values: None:  Vendor collaboration functionality is inactive for the corresponding vendor. Active (PO is auto-confirmed): Purchase orders are automatically confirmed if the vendor accepts them without changes Active (PO is not auto-confirmed): Purchase orders are not automatically confirmed if the vendor accepts them without changes. Purchasing agent from your company must confirm purchase order manually. Collaboration activation On the Purchase order details FastTab select Purchase order prices/amount flag if you want your supplier to see price information. Purchase order prices amount Add vendor contact Navigate to Accounts payable > Vendors > All vendors. Click Contacts -> Add contacts on the Action pane on the Vendor tab. Add contacts Once you add new contact, click Provision vendor user button on the Contact tab in the Requests section. Provision vendor user Provision vendor user By provisioning vendor user, you determine that contact which you are provisioning will be created as a user and will get the access into D365 and will do all activities from vendor side like approving purchase orders. In the Provision vendor user form, set Vendor collaboration flag. Select which roles should be assigned to the user. Provision vendor user form Click Submit button. As the result new vendor user request will be created. User request Go to Vendor collaboration > Contacts > Vendor collaboration user requests. Created request will be displayed with the Submitted status and workflow will be started. Vendor collaboration user requests Go into details and check the roles that will be assigned to the user. User request details Approve the request by clicking Workflow -> Approve button. Workflow Approval Once you approve the request, the status will be changed into Pending approval. After workflow is executed, status will be changed to Azure AD B2B user invitation pending. New button Export user invitation file will be available. It will export csv file with the connection information. Export user invitation file Complete the workflow by clicking Workflow -> Complete button. Workflow Complete Workflow Complete 2 And again, Pending approval status will be set and Approve creation of AX usertask will be started.
