Submit Your Suggestions for Viewpoint Team

Streamline Revise and Submit process to make it easier for all involved.

Submittal Revise and Resubmit process:

1. The Architect rejects a submittal and the ball is in Sachse’s Court. There are two options: Close and notify, or create revision. The ‘create revision’ button should be deleted.

2. When the ‘close and notify’ button is clicked, the notify pop up comes up. There should be a check box for ‘revise and resubmit’ that creates a revision when checked. The old revision will then be locked out from editing.

3. All revision pages should have two areas to upload attachments. One is for “approved submittals”, the other is for “Revise/Review Submittals”

4. Add a feature on each revision to be able to toggle through revision. Currently you can only move backwards. You need the ability to also move forward. So if you are on REV 1, you should be able to go back to REV 0 for reference, but also move forward to REV 2 or whatever is the current revision.

    I was just going to issue suggestion on create revision process and this item popped up. If you Create Revision, the Vendo is not notified of the original submittal state and does not get link sent to the review. When you issue Revision, we have to put in the comment box where to find the original review telling them to select the drop-down by REV 1 to go back. Earlier version use to list the versions i.e. REV0 REV1 with the focus on whatever version you are on. While the drop-down is cleaner layout, earlier version was easier for non-expert user to use.

    Jeremy, this issue is related to a post I just sent. This really needs to be addressed since resubmittals are a daily process.

    It would also be helpful if the due from Arch/Eng date would be cleared out.  When I create the revision and ask that it come in from the Subcontractor by a certain date, I cannot delete the due from Arch/Eng.  Then they are getting late notices because it keeps the date from the original submittal.  And, if I push that date out, then they are getting notified that they have to respond by a certain date when the revised submittal has not yet even been issued by the subcontractor.  It causes confusion for the A/E team.
