Messages can be sent to contractors that were invited to your bid to relay any additional information, or to simply follow up.
To send a message to contractors related to multiple bids at once, follow the steps below.
Step 1: Go to the Bid Summary
After navigating to your bids module, click on the "Bid SUMMARY" on the top-right of your bid package folders.
Step 2: Select contractors
Hover over a contractor and click on the checkbox on the left-hand side of the contractor's name to reveal the bottom toolbar.
Click on the "MESSAGE" option to display the "Message" dialog.
Step 3: Send message
Type your message in to the text field, add any related attachments and click the "SEND" button.
Note: contractors are individually addressed and can never see one another.
Step 4: Notifications
After sending a message to a contractor, they will receive an email notification like the one below.
Contractors can reply directly to your notification from their email account and all replies will be logged in their "messages" tab in the interface.
