Thank you to those of you who attended this Webinar. Below are a few of the questions from the session with their corresponding answers. The full list of questions and answers from the session is attached to this post. Please feel free to use Ariba Exchange to respond to this post and interact with your peers. We look forward to speaking with you again in a future session!

 

Question: When you set up a response team, what happens if both of them try to submit responses? Will one overwrite the other? Or will it let them know a response has already been submitted?

Answer: They can both submit responses. If one has already submitted and the other submits as well, it will overwrite any changes that supplier contact 1 has made. Contact 2 will be able to see that a response has been submitted.

 

Question: Can graders be added after the RFP due/response date?

Answer: Yes, you can edit the graders up until the event is Closed or Completed.

 

Question: If there are multiple participants for a single organization, do they submit multiple responses?

Answer: Only if you do not set them up as a Response Team. Response Team will 'turn them into' one single response.

 

Question: What determines weather you pick Full Project or Quick project?

Answer: To some extent it is what you decided to set up in the deployment process. The Full Project or Quick Project buttons may be disabled to take away any choice on the matter. The difference between the two is that a Full Project is more elaborate in that it includes Tasks, Messages, a place for External Documents that will not go to suppliers, etc. Full Projects are generally assuming that you will be doing multiple events, in any combination of RFI/RFP/Auction sometimes also mulitple RFPs or Auctions. It is a way to keep all event documents related to one project together. The Quick Project is literally just the RFI/RFP or Auction 'document' that will go to vendors and has no tasks associated.
