BuildingConnected gives subcontractors the ability to add suppliers or vendors to bids. Use this feature to ensure that the appropriate individuals have access to your bid.
Start from the bid’s “Overview” tab. Under “Team Summary” click on “Manage team.”
Click into the “Add a follower or vendor” field.
Type the email address of the vendor or supplier that you’d like to add to the bid. Once their email address is typed out, click on “Invite” from the drop-down menu. This will send the added contact a notification.
Once the appropriate contacts have been added, click on “Done.”
To remove a vendor from a bid
Start from the bid’s “Overview” tab. Under “Team Summary,” find the name of the vendor you’d like to remove. Click on the drop-down menu next to their name and then click on “Remove.”
To resend a vendor invitation
Start from the bid’s “Overview” tab. Under “Team Summary,” find the name of the vendor to whom you’d like to resend the invite. Click on the drop-down menu next to their name and then click on “Resend invite Email.”
To share “Internal Files”
Vendors in BuildingConnected can access project files that were uploaded by the general contractor. However, vendors cannot access files that have been uploaded into the “Internal Files” section of a bid. Vendors will see this area of the “Files” tab empty.
To share files from the “Internal Files” section with vendors, we ask that you send a message from your personal inbox to email@example.com that includes the appropriate files as attachments. Once the message is added as an addenda to the bid, the files will be accessible to vendors.
If you have any questions about how to manage vendors that have been added to a bid, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re happy to help!
