Merge all Drawings into a single PDF for Bidders
When adding drawings to a Bid Invite, the drawings should merge into one PDF so it makes it easy for the bidder to view the project quickly, and not have to download a zip file with many PDFs of individual drawings. Try to copy what Building Connected does. It is way more intuitive, easy and time saving that the way Procore is trying to do it.
Thank you for your feedback! We have shared your post with the development teams. We will update this space if we have any questions or change the status.

Please make the required changes to allow for PDFs attached to a Tender downloadable as 1 single PDF as opposed to a zip file with many individual PDFs.

Had a contractor ask for this feature just this week. Much simpler / faster to print one pdf versus 82 pdfs...

Would like to ad an additional comment and please trim back the number of folders that are in bidding packages. We have missed out on several tenders being completed due to excessive folder structure that contains individual drawings rather than combined.
Give us the option to include folders or not as part of the tender package information. If drawings are merged by category, this would make it easier for our contractors who typically use mobile devices to initially review packages. Too often packages can't be reviewed as folders in zipped files often can't be viewed or opened.
Please add this feature, having to individually handle sometimes several hundred individual files and merging them one at a time adds a significant amount of grief and wasted time to the bidding process. This is a basic and default feature of many other services.

Agreed! The bidding process could be more streamlined on the subcontractor side. Simply having the plans bound as one document instead of individual PDFs would remove a lot of room for error and missed pages during the bidding process.

Please simplify Bidding. Just copy what Building Connected does, or buy out that company. If not, please improve and simplify this work flow to mirror what Building Connected does.
