About RFI's

The RFI's section of the Project Management Module is the location for managing and maintaining the RFI's for the project. 

As a Project Management section, the RFI's section can have a folder structure created to organize RFI's. When folders are used in any Project Management module, Folder Access will need to be addressed for each subfolder that is created within the section.

It is also important to note that there are advanced functions available when using RFI folders, for more information regarding RFI Advanced Forwarding, please contact
