In the CSP, you have a public profile and you can have specific profiles for your customers that you are connected with through the CSP.
You can view and update your public and customer-specific profiles from the Home page or the Profile page.
When you register or log in to the CSP to do business with a customer that uses an onboarding flow, you are guided through the process of providing the customer with the necessary information. For more information, see Update your customer profile.
Some sections are labeled as private and cannot be seen from the CSP. Financial information (for example, your tax ID, DUNS, and remit-to addresses) are considered private information. This information appears only on documents that you create through the CSP, for example, on invoices.
Update your public profile
Anyone can find and connect with you through your public profile.
Your public profile is created when you create your account and it contains general information about your company, for example, name, logo, website, industry, year of establishment, top commodities, currencies, diversity, and corporate social responsibility rating (on the Home and Profile / Public Profile pages), the link to your public profile (on the Home page), and contact information (on the Profile / Public Profile page).
At the top of the Home page, you can see your profile progress/completeness.
The following table shows the profile completeness stages.
|Profile Progress Bar Color||Message|
Action needed: Complete your profile to get paid faster and get discovered.
Recommended: Complete your profile to get paid faster and get discovered.
Great job! A complete profile helps you get paid faster and get discovered.
Next to the progress bar, the Last Updated field shows how long ago the profile was updated, for example, 2 minutes ago or 10 days ago.
The following table shows the color of the progress bar depending on the age of the profile.
|Percentage of Completeness||Last Updated < 1 Year Ago||Last Updated 1-2 Years Ago||Last Updated > 2 Years Ago|
|50% - 80%||Blue||Blue||Red|
|80% - 100%||Green||Blue||Red|
The Learn More link next to the profile progress message opens the Get Discovered with a Complete Public Profile popup with tips and information on the benefits of a complete public profile.
Clicking Update Profile opens your public profile for editing.
Under the section about your profile progress, you can see an actionable profile summary, which shows the number of legal entities and registered users based on the information provided in your profile, and the number of connected users, that is, the number of customers linked to your profile.
Clicking on the View link under Legal Entities takes you to the Admin / Legal Entity Setup page where you can add, update, or deactivate legal entities.
Clicking on the View link under Registered Users directs you to the Admin / Users page where you can invite new or manage existing users.
The profile summary also indicates if you have () or have not () provided banking and diversity information, if you accelerate orders/invoices, and if you have a bribery policy.

Reuse your customer-specific profile information in your public profile
When you receive a supplier information form request from your customer to create or update your profile, you can copy/save the provided information to your CSP public profile. After submitting your supplier information for approval, click Yes, Copy to Profile in the appearing popup window.
Your existing CSP profile data is overwritten with the data you provided in the supplier information form only when you save the form.
You are directed to the Public Profile edit page where the following fields are automatically populated (and highlighted in yellow) based on the provided information: Name, Industry, Full Description, Website, Bribery and Corruption Policy, Address (all fields), Primary Contact (all fields), PO Delivery Email, and DUNS number. Save your profile to confirm the updates.
Update and reuse your public profile information in your customer-specific profile
Keep your information accurate and up to date for each of your customers.
Depending on your customers' settings, your customer-specific profile changes may update the information that your customers have.
To update your customer-specific profiles, go to Profile > Your Customer Profiles. To manage a specific profile, select the customer name from the Profile drop-down list. If you do not see the customer you are looking for, it means that you are not connected to them yet. You cannot see them in the Select Customer drop-down list on the Orders, Service/Time Sheets, ASN, Invoices, Catalogs, and Payments pages either.
If any of your customers uses a supplier information form, and you update information in your CSP public profile, you are prompted to update your customer profile if you have any supplier information form requests. You can update your profile also for customers that do not use a supplier information form by requesting help from those customers' supplier account owners.
After editing and saving your public profile, you can see a green banner notifying you about your profile update status, for example: "Your company info was successfully updated on your Public Profile and 2 customer profiles."
Depending on whether your customer profile is for a customer using supplier information forms or not, you can also see popups with various information and instructions.
Customer profile update with supplier information form
The popups depend on the following scenarios:
One or multiple supplier information customer profiles that are new/blank (not filled out) or saved (filled out and saved).
One or multiple supplier information customer profiles that are filled out and submitted for approval, or approved and applied.
In the Action Needed: Update Customer Information popup, you are informed if you need to edit a specific form and provide more information (due to the differences between the public profile fields and the customizable customer profile fields), or if you can submit the form for approval as is.
Click on the Open button to open your customer profile for editing with fields (highlighted in yellow) pre-populated based on your public profile.
You can see this page also for other customers using supplier information forms if you select them from the Profile dropdown.
Add the missing information and submit your form for approval.
If you make changes, you are asked if you want to save the new information to your public profile. For more information, see Reuse your customer-specific profile information in your public profile.
Click on the Show changes link to see the information that populated the fields before they were updated with information from your pubic profile.
If you try to submit your form for approval before it is approved, you are informed in a red banner that it is pending approval. To update your profile, you need to withdraw the request and resubmit your changes.
If you close the popup, you can open it any time from your Notifications by clicking on the Update information requests notification. For more information, see View and Manage Notifications.

Update your customer profile
When you register or log in to the CSP to do business with a customer that uses an onboarding flow, you are guided through the following elements of the flow to provide your customer with the necessary information: welcome message, basics, payment, and profile.
Some elements of the onboarding flow, for example, fields for invoicing setup and bank information for payment, are available only if you are based in the US, that is, your selected country/region is the United States. If you are not a US-based supplier, only the basics and profile elements, and the payment discount preferences settings are available.

Mandatory fields are marked with a red asterisk (*).
