When you create a new RFQ, firstly activate the encryption of your files when uploading the file.
Once activated, you can upload your non-disclosure agreement (NDA) as a PDF, as well as your drawings in the formats specified on the website.
By encrypting your job, interested parties have no access to your files.
Once a supplier has signed and re-uploaded the Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), you will receive a notification. More information on notifications can be found at: How can I handle my communication directly through the platform?
Clicking on the notification will take you directly to the quote overview in your Order Management, see the information about the supplier and, via the option selection, you can release the NDA for this supplier to receive an offer or reject it. More information about the offer overview can be found under: How does the quote overview work?
Another form of notification display is the green button next to the RFQ in your Order Management. For more information on Order Management, see: How does Order Management work? With a double-click on the RFQ, you will be redirected to the quote overview.
As soon as you approve or reject an NDA, the RFQ is automatically moved to the corresponding category (Open / Rejected) in the quote overview.
