Loblaw Portal Administrator

A Loblaw Portal Administrator is the primary contact within their organization for the Loblaw Supplier Portal. The Loblaw Portal Administrator is able to manage access for users in their organization to specific applications required through the Loblaw Supplier Portal. In addition, they have the ability to onboard new users to the Loblaw Supplier Portal, as well as offboard users as they leave the organization or change roles. The Loblaw Portal Administrator is the first point of contact for users with questions on the Loblaw Supplier Portal. For more information on the Loblaw Portal Administrator, please refer to the Managing Loblaw Portal Users – Reference Guide for Loblaw Portal Administrator found on Loblaw.ca/Supplier.

Once logged into the Loblaw Supplier Portal, you can determine if you are the Loblaw Portal Administrator by clicking the Profile icon at the top of the Loblaw Supplier Portal and selecting User Admin. Only Loblaw Portal Administrators will have this selection, which provides information on users in their organization with access to the Loblaw Supplier Portal. Clicking Portal Admin Info will also display your contact information as the Loblaw Portal Administrator for your organization.

Loblaw Portal Administrators are generally the users that initiate the setup of their organization as a Loblaw Supplier. As a Loblaw Portal Administrator, you will receive an email once your organization has been successfully setup in the Loblaw Supplier Portal. It is also possible the primary Loblaw Portal Administrator for your organization assigned you as a secondary Portal Administrator to assist them.

Once you complete the initial profile creation process in the Loblaw Supplier Portal, you can set up additional users in your organization to access the portal. As the primary Loblaw Portal Administrator, you can select a secondary and optional Loblaw Portal Administrator from these users. The secondary and optional Loblaw Portal Administrators will have the same access and capabilities as you. The secondary Loblaw Portal Administrator can remove you from the primary Loblaw Portal Administrator role, making them the new primary Loblaw Portal Administrator for your organization. Organizations can have up to three Loblaw Portal Administrators. Loblaw Portal Administrators cannot remove themselves as Loblaw Portal Administrators.

The amount of time required by a Loblaw Portal Administrator is determined by the number of users in their organization with access to the Loblaw Supplier Portal. The Loblaw Portal Administrator is responsible for the initial setup of users in their organization on to the portal and is the first point of contact for their users’ questions. A Loblaw Portal Administrator can assign users in their organization as secondary and optional Loblaw Portal Administrators to assist with Loblaw Portal Administrator functions.

You will become a Loblaw Portal Administrator once you have completed all the requirements on the Supplier onboarding checklist in the Loblaw Supplier Portal. Once your Supplier has been successfully setup to do business with Loblaw, you will receive a confirmation email that your Supplier is setup and that you are the Loblaw Portal Administrator for your organization. At this point, you can begin setting up new users in your organization with access to the Loblaw Supplier Portal and its applications.
