RFI Permissions

We have not found a scenario where we would prefer subcontractors are entering their own RFI's. It is still the Project admin's responsibility to review and send this RFI to the Architect, so having the subcontractor create their own RFI's does not simplify the work stream. We would prefer that the subcontractor as a collaborator does not have the ability to create RFI's, they only have the ability to review and respond/answer to RFI's.

    We are finding the ability for Subcontractors and Suppliers to create INT-RFI's is a great tool added in the recent update. We set those RFI's to come to the PM and they can answer or create a related RFI to the A/E. Better than email and helps keeping it in you Items Assigned list. Would be helpful that if RFII is answered and closed you could also have an option to close the Related INT-RFI at same time. I say way to go TEAM.

    Good input on this suggestion.

    Where we will make enhancements will be in our security and authorization.  We have had requests to separate  upstream  (customers/architects) collaborators form down stream (subs/suppliers) collaboraters.  This would allow more control for who can do what/when.  That way we can provide a setting for you to use if you prefer to not allow sub to create RFIs.  

    I will say overall, the community of customers we have worked with wanted to allow their subs/suppliers the ability to create RFIs.

    Yes, INT-RFI's is working good to control RFI's from Subs & Vendors to go to the Project Manager and flow controlled by them as far answering, forwarding to another Vendor/Sub or issuing a Related RFI to A/E.

    Thank You,

    We also do not allow our subs/vendors to create RFIs.  And I am interested in seeing more granular security through all of the modules (Submittals, Daily Logs, Issues, etc).
