Having the supplier reference in the product grid makes my workflow a lot faster. In previous versions, with it in the grid, while I'm importing images, I can highlight the supplier number in the grid, copy it and then paste the number in my vendors search, then I can take the image right from the vendors website into the product without having to toggle back and forth between image and main products in the quick tab. As a result of this feature being removed from version 126.96.36.1992, I have had to go back to version 188.8.131.529. Newer versions of software are supposed to improve the usability, not increase the workflow.
We have changed Supplier Reference because of ver.1.5 Prestashop changes.
If you look at PrestaShop Backend - supplier Ref. field was changed and transferred to another Tab by PrestaShop Team.
It was because of multi-supplier ref. list.
That's why we can't to reproduce 1 supplier ref. in the grid.
What should we do in case of multi-suppliers ? screen-shot - http://screencast.com/t/GCdp5lf1

I also want this in the product grid. I have my reference number for my store and the reference number for the supplier. I need to see both in the product grid when working, especially when I have a problem and need the ability to visually scan the references quickly for comparison etc. Going back and forth causes distraction and loss of concentration, leading to confusion and eventually baldness. I'm not getting any younger guys.Lol. Maybe add 3 columns, "Supplier 1", "Supplier 2", "Supplier 3" that we can add or remove as needed,nor maybe select which supplier's ref's to show. I was very disappointed when I figured out that I actually had imported the supplier references correctly but they were just not being utilized in the software. Thank you for excellent support and brilliant software!
