Responding to an RFI Using Quick Reply (Recommended)
Note: If the email received does not contain a Quick Reply Link, please contact the Project Administrator as Quick Reply is a Project Setting controlled by the Owning Organization per project and Project Member.
1. From the RFI email notification received, select the Post a Reply to this RFI link. This will open the default browser to the Quick Reply screen
2. In the Quick Reply screen, enter the reply to the RFI in the Reply Box
Note: Using the Do not send notifications checkbox will post the reply without sending notifications to the listed collaborators of the RFI and has a limited use case.
3. Include any supplemental attachments into the Attachments section by selecting the Add New Attachment button
4. In the pop-up, drag and drop the file or use Browse file(s) button to navigate to the storage location where the file is located
5. Once the status icon of the file(s) turns green, select Upload File(s) at the bottom
6. Select the Post Reply button in the top ribbon
When the reply has been successfully posted, the respondent will receive a confirmation the reply has been posted and the window can be closed.
The listed collaborators (To, From, and CC's) will receive an email notification notating that a reply has been posted and provide the ability to Download the RFI as a PDF or navigate to the RFI in the StratusVue Platform Website.
All Quick Reply responses are posted to the discussion thread of the RFI and will be included in all prints. The Project Team then has the ability to close the RFI using the posted discussion response that answers the RFI.
