Supplier Part

I would like to be able to enter supplier part number on the fly when entering a PO, is this even possible or do you have to use the supplier part list? I was hoping it would work like the customer part number.

We do it all the time for office supplies and other non-inventory purchases. You just have to select Other instead of inventory, and the Part and Description fields become free text input.

I believe if you import the supplier price list this also works to a certain extent… anyone played with?
