As a general contractor, you can create bidder list templates to easily import bidders into new projects. To add bidders to a template, start from the “Projects” page and then click on the “Bidder List Templates” tab.
Select the bidder list template into which you want to add a bidder. Click here for instructions on how to create bidder list templates.
Select the bid package into which you want to add a bidder.
Click on “+Add Bidders.”
There are three ways you can add bidders to a bidder list template
Please note that adding bidders to bidder list templates will not send them an email notification. Bidders will only receive an email notification once a bidder list template is imported into a project and the project is then published.
For more information about bidder list templates, including instructions on how to import bidder list templates into projects, please visit the “Bidder Lists” section of our help center.

Click on the project or template you would like to import bidders from.
Click on the bid package and the bidders in that package will appear under "Selected Bidders". You can click on multiple if desired and the corresponding bidders will be added to the "Selected Bidders" list.
You can remove any individual bidders you do not want to add by clicking on the "x" icon next to that company. Click "Add" to add the selected bidders.
