2. Create New Tender

A new email message will be opened with the document category already selected for tender request. 

 

  • Enter a Subject line for your tender package 
  • Your Tender has the option to Send Privately which means that any recipient in the To field will not see who else has been included in the Tender package.

It’s important to note that they will see who has been CC’d in the Tender.  

2. Add Recipients

  • Start typing the name of the contact to display a list of users from the project contact list. Alternatively, you can click on the To, CC or BCC button to display the full global contact list.
