New Bidder should receive Bid Docs AND issued Correspondence
Have the correspondence format identical to the bid format that shows the tab view and resend beside the vendors. When you add additional vendors to a bid invite, you must also go in and send the correspondence, but it brings up the whole bidders list. Would be nice to bring up the new vendor added
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.

We have sent few correspondences to few subbies. When add a new subbie there is no option to forward previous correspondences. Have to send as a new correspondence. It's a main negative issue. Please fix this issue.

This is a good idea however they should only receive correspondence sent to the particular subcontractor being re-invited. I quite often sen individualized correspondence. I wouldn't want the correspondence for x being subsequently forwarded to y.

Just one of many bidding issues that need work.
John Walker commented
TOTALLY agree. I thought they did until recently. Makes no sense. My work around is keeping an unlocked bidding folder in the documents that is attached to the package and making sure it is up to date before inviting /reinviting.

Happy New Year!
I know that this idea has been brought up before.
When will we be able to forward correspondence already sent within the bidding tool?
Amy Bergman commented
When using the correspondence in a bid package, it would be great when we add bidders at a later time, if we could forward the same correspondence to the other bidders that were added after the fact.
Daniel Stark commented
It would be nice if you could simply forward previous bid correspondence with the click of a button and then add new subs rather than creating a new correspondence and having to reattach the documents.
In the bidding tab, have a better way to issue addenda rather than the correspondence function. When you add another bidder after you have issued an addendum, you have to be sure to go back and send them an individual correspondence with the addendum or other communication. It would be better to have a running tally of all documents so when you add someone, they get all documents that have been issued.

We quite often get requests to reinvite bidders (because they've lost their invitation or whatever). It would be EXTREMELEY helpful if when we reinivited them, they also got any Correspondence (formerly referred to as an Addendum) at the same time, instead of having to reinvite them, and then resend each separate Correspondence to them again. Thank you.
