Thank you to those of you who attended this Webinar.  Below are a few of the questions from the sessions 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: How can I test a project  and see what a supplier would see after I finished creating a project or during?

Answer: There is a feature in the Content step that allows you to "Preview" how suppliers will see the event, you just need to make sure you have at least one supplier invited for this to work, click on Actions -> View As Participant -> click on the Participant Name. We also recommend creating a test supplier in your site so that you can login as that supplier and participate in a Test event (never on Live events).

 

Question: If the project owner is the grader, do you have to list them as a team grader or is it automatic?

Answer: If you would like to have the Project Owner be one of the Graders, yes, you can add them. However, the Project Owner does have the ability to override scores (averages) at the end of the Scoring process through an option called "Adjust Grades for Consensus".

 

Question: When I create my events I do not get a "Team" section. How can I get this as a section?

Answer: If you are not seeing the "Team" step, it is because you are more than likely using the Full Project functionality (Sourcing Pro only). In Full Projects, there is a Team tab, and once you create an Event (RFP, Auction, etc.) the Team is inherited from the Full Project. So if you need to assign Observers and Active Observers, you would do it in the Full Project.

 

Question: How do you create multiple choices for questions?

Answer: When you editing a question, you need to make sure the question type is "Single Line Limited" for this to work, then under "Acceptable Values", select List of Choices. You will get options at the bottom of the screen to Add your choices, then you can either make them multiple choices (checkboxes) or single selection (radio buttons).
