When you send a quote request to a supplier/contractor, they will receive an email to provide you with a quote request. Quote requests will expire after 14 days unless you extend the deadline which will extend the request for an extra week.
At anytime, you can view, resend or remind a supplier/contractor of the quote request if they have not submitted it yet.
Buildxact will also send automatic reminders to a supplier/contractor 3 days before the deadline if no response has been received and again on the day of the deadline if no response has been received.
Additionally, Buildxact will send alerts to a supplier/contractor for the following scenarios:
Quote submitted - record sent to the supplier/contractor of the price
Quote later - if a supplier/contractor selects to quote later, Buildxact will resend the request to remind them for later
Price change - If the Buildxact user changes the quote price, Buildxact will notify the supplier/contractor that the price has been modified
