Christian, First, expanding event limits is one of my highest priorities for 13s1 planning. We don't have the definitive list yet for what has made the 13s1 plan yet, but I will be shocked if expanding these limits doesn't. Secondly, the most effective way to deal with the event limits is to utilize the Custom Offline Response functionality. That will help you circumvent all the limits except for # of suppliers. With that functionality, you collect all the information you want in Excel from the bidders and you map their responses to items/terms/questions in Ariba. You only map the terms/questions/items that are required to make your award decision, but you still collect all the information in the Custom Offline Response Sheet. Can you tell me more about the event you are seeking to run and the limitations you are bumping up against? Thanks! David
sorry for taking so long to come back to you. We have resolved the issues.
Thank you again for trying to help us
We also run into the same problems with direct spend, especially, where we ask suppliers to help us build a rate chart, with price breaks based on quantities.
We usually use Excel for these. Did you find a better way?
