When you send a quote request to a supplier/contractor, they will receive an email to provide you with a quote. 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
