Coupa Supplier Portal administrators who manage users are notified through a banner to check user permissions.
Non-admin users can view permissions and request additional permissions from the Coupa Supplier Portal administrator.
You can close the banner for the current session, but the message is displayed again after logging in to a new session.
Once you are signed in, Coupa offers a tour of the new site.
When you log in for the first time, you are prompted to enable two-factor authentication. See Enable or Disable Two-Factor Authentication for more info.
Log In with Two-Factor Authentication
If you have enabled two-factor authentication, the Two-Factor Authentication window opens when you log in to the Coupa Supplier Portal.
If you enabled the Two-Factor Authenticator App, open Google Authenticator on your device, choose your Coupa Supplier Portal account, and obtain the validation code.
If you enabled two-factor authentication for SMS, check your text messages for the verification code.
Type the two-factor authentication code in the appropriate field, choose Remember this computer for 30 days (if you're not using a shared or public computer) and click Log In.
After 30 days you will be required to log in again.
The code is good for 60 seconds. If you don't type the authentication code on the CSP sign-in page and click Log In within 60 seconds, you must obtain a new code and try again.
If you are locked out and don't have your six-digit backup validation code, contact your customer (GWS U.S., Canada, and APAC or Corporate U.S.) You will be asked to complete a declaration form and provide the email you used to log in to the Coupa Supplier Portal.

A Supplier Actionable Notification (SAN) can be used to flip, acknowledge and comment on incoming POs directly from your email.
With SAN, you don't need to register or log in to the Coupa Supplier Portal (CSP).
- Please note that CBRE’s preferred invoicing enablement is PO Flip through the CSP. The CSP offers many advantages including views of all invoices and payment statuses in one convenient place, a benefit that is not available without registration on the portal.
- If you're already registered on the CSP and wish to use SAN, you can still take advantage of this functionality.
- CBRE must enable you to use SAN. Please click here to contact your Coupa support team to request approval for this enablement type.
- Once enabled for SAN, you will receive a notification email after you submit an invoice or when CBRE performs an action on the invoice.
- Open your Coupa notification email to create an invoice, acknowledge a PO or add comments.

If you adjust the information on invoice lines, you can edit the following fields: Credit Note Date, Credit Note Number, Credit Reason and line adjustment information (e.g., price and quantity). Line-level taxes are carried over from the invoice and prorated based on the credit amount.• If a supplier submits a credit for an original invoice and tax and freight were billed, the credit for tax and freight will need to be included on the credit memo. We will not accept freight- or tax-only invoices.
