Vendor Interface > Contact Information > Email addresses
The default display for Vendor Interface > Contact Information > Email addresses, does not include an option to display the "description" field on the main page. The fields available for display are: Preferred, email address, created by, creation date, and type.
Since most correspondence with vendors and sales representatives happen by email now, it would be useful to be able to see the description on the main page without having to click on .... and Edit for each email listed to see who is the correct contact.
Some email addresses do not contain the person's full name, and if you have different contacts from the same vendor for different purposes, it would be one less click to view the description that explains who to contact for what specific purpose.
I'd rather remove "created by" and "creation date" as display options and replace them with "description" in the display options on the Vendor Interfac > Contact Information > Email addresses main screen.
Using the Vendor Interface > Contact information is preferred because Vendor > Contact People creates internal users - and we do not want to create internal users out of our vendor sales and support contacts - especially since those contacts may change frequently.
Thanks for considering. Sandra.
I also just had a staff member ask about this. Seems self-evident and should be a simple fix. I hope this idea gets more visibility.

I have just had one of our staff ask after this, as it is very unnecessarily time-consuming to have to click in and out of the email address entries repeatedly just to see the key field of Description.
I completely agree with the submission in not wanting to create user accounts for this to try to solve what seems to be a very simple fix to add the option to the cog icon display to allow users to display the Description if they want to.
