  1. A bidder has emailed you a quote.
  2. A bidder has responded to a Commnia Tender Request with a quote.

2. What happens when I mark an email as a quote?

3. How do I mark an email as a quote?

If you receive an email in your private email application i.e Outlook and the email contains a quote for a Tender you created in Commnia, you can import the email into Commnia as a quote.

To see how to install the Outlook plugin click here.

In Outlook, open the email, click on the Commnia Outlook Plugin and select Save to Conversation from the menu.

This applies to any tender email that exists in the Commnia Inbox.
