RFI Number Generation

When a subcontractor issues an RFI in team, can they be given a "draft" status so as not to take new RFI Number? A prospect was imagining a scenario where a Sub would raise an RFI #5 but the GC raises one to the Architect as #7 so then the Architect gets #7 before they get #5 and that could cause some confusion. They mentioned another software does a draft type status for Sub issued RFIs.

    We utilize INT-RFI for our subs and Vendors. We set these to come to the Project Manager to either answer or make a related formal RFI that is in turn issued to the A/E. We keep the INT-RFI`s private so as not to confuse people with the informal RFI`s. Works pretty sweet as the related RFI`s are accessible from each one.

    We've worked out a similar workflow where the sub creates a Sub-RFI type and then we would create a related item from that. It works well. If only there was an option to copy the SubRFI attachments to the new RFI . . .  See suggestion MVPM-I-245. . .
