To add companies and contacts to the Company Directory directly from the Tendering tool.


Instead of having to go to the Company level Directory tool to add companies and contacts for tenders, you can add new companies and primary tendering contacts directly from the Tendering tool.

    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Tendering AND Directory tools.
  • Additional Information:
