Answer RFIs

 In this topic, we'll show you how to answer an RFI.

From the RFI page

  1. Click on the Requests for Information module from the left navigation.



  2. Click on the RFI category dropdown and select Received RFIs from the drop-down.





  3. Click on the Actions menu dropdown.

      

  4. Click on the View from the drop down list.

      

  5. Click on the Post Response button.

      

  6. Enter a response in the Response text box.



  7. Click on the Attach Files button and select the files that you want to attach with the RFI.
    Note: You can also attach files from other cloud file storage services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, ShareFile or One Drive. When you choose to attach files from a cloud service the system will ask for your permission to connect with the file storage service of your choice.



  8. Click on the Link Files button and select the Link From Builderbox File Cloud option and select the files that you want to link with the RFI.
    Note: You can also link files from other cloud file storage services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, ShareFile or One Drive. When you choose to attach files from a cloud service the system will ask for your permission to connect with the file storage service of your choice. “Linking Files” to a document is different than “Attaching Files.” When you link a file, it will only attach a link of the file from the cloud service and won’t make a snapshot (in time) of that file. On the other hand when you use the “Attach Files” feature, a snapshot (in time) of the attached files will be stored as record with the documents.



  9. Click on the Submit Response button.



  10. Click on the Yes button.



  11. Your response will be successfully submitted. An email notification will be sent to the RFI author and others based on their Notifications Settings.
