To create an EOT notice, follow the steps below.
Note: you must first set up your project's EOT register before creating an EOT notice.
Step 1: Go to the EOT register
Navigate to your Management module and click on the EOT notice tool to access your project's EOT register.
Step 2: Click the "CREATE" button
Click the "CREATE" button to start completing your notice information.
Step 3: Add recipients
First, type into the "To" field to search for the contact you would like to address the EOT notice to.
You can then type into the "Cc" field to include any other related contacts in the notice and all related correspondence (e.g. project team members).
If the contact you are searching for isn't in your address book, click the "ADD NEW CONTACT" button to add them.
Note: you can search for anyone in your address book by contact name, email address, company name or tag. Contacts do not require a Webuild account to view, download or respond to your notice.
Step 4: Add notice information and response required date
Complete the information stating the nature of the EOT claim and set the response required by clicking in to the date picker and selecting a date.
You can also opt to automatically send email notifications to all recipients once the "response required" date has passed by checking the "Send overdue notifications" box.
Step 5: Add delay days
a. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "ADD DAYS" button
b. Select the date range applicable to your EOT claim
c. Click the "ADD" button on the bottom-right hand side of the dialog
Note: if the delay days related to the EOT claim are unknown, check the "Days to be Confirmed" box. Delay days can be added at a later date by clicking in to the notice from the register.
Step 6: Add markups or other attachments (optional)
Click the small floating paperclip button to reveal the attachment options for your notice.
- Attach a plan/file from your document register to your notice
- Markup a plan from your document register and attach it to your notice
- Attach any form notice from your Management module to your notice
- Attach a photo or file from your device to your notice
Step 7: Send, Save or Save as draft
After adding all related information to your notice, click the "DONE" button on the top-right hand side of your screen to reveal the below options:
- Send (email notifications are sent to recipients)
- Save (email notifications are not sent to recipients, but notice is logged)
- Save as draft (come back to your notice later)
Step 8: Notifications (if sent)
After sending an EOT notice, each contact receives an email notification like the one in the example below.
Recipients can click the "Download Notice" button to download the EOT notice pdf and any related attachments, or click "View Details" button to view the EOT notice and related files via the interface.
Recipients can also approve/reject EOT days via the interface by clicking the "Approve", "Partly Approve" or "Reject" buttons.
A record of the EOT notice is added to your project's EOT register with all related information, including a date/time stamp for download activity.

Step 9: Responses or questions
All recipients can ask any questions by replying directly to the email notification. The sender and all other recipients will receive the related updates via email.
EOT notice senders and recipients can also send messages via the notice's "COMMENTS" tab when viewing the notice online.
All replies to EOT notice emails and messages will also be logged in the "COMMENTS" tab of the EOT notice in the interface.
Note: recipients that are not a part of your organisation will only be able to view and access the notices that relate to them.
Example: EOT notice - "BREAKDOWN" tab
Example: EOT notice - "NOTICE" tab
Example: EOT notice - "RECIPIENTS" tab
Example: EOT notice - "COMMENTS" tab
Example: EOT notice - adding attachments to "COMMENTS" tab
