How do I send messages to vendors?

If you ever get a lot of questions from your Vendors during the RFP or Profile process and you'd like to contact a specific person or the whole group at a time, you can! ...and they can send messages back to you. This beats a bunch of emails any day. 

Messages can be tagged as General or tied to a specific Section/Question.

You can send messages to All VendorsSpecific Vendor Contacts or your whole Proposal team


To access Messages, go into your RFP Dashboard and click on the Messages icon in the upper right-hand corner. 




The Messages page will show all of the messages between the internal team and the messages back and forth with the vendors.  You can also reference a specific question or section so they'll know exactly what you're asking. 




You can also see an ongoing log of the Messaging Page on your RFP Dashboard at the bottom of the page.
