Our business group is currently using only Core HR and there are several contractors/contingent workers in the system. What is the best way to capture the supplier name? Right now, it is captured in some DFF but I want to use the supplier name field in the supplier tab of assignment form. There are other business groups in the same instance for different countries and they are using the purchasing module and have defined suppliers for their use which I am able to see in the list of values for supplier field in my business group.
I want to suggest our HR folks to start using the supplier field instead of capturing this information in some DFF. Will there be any negative implications of doing this? Is supplier data shared across business groups? If I define suppliers for our business group purposes, will the other business groups be able to see our values?
