- Templates can be created based on existing requests. Templates can be used to quickly create new draft requests with the same structure and content.
- All relevant data (incl. files) will be retained as part of a template.
- The following request data will not be retained for a template: request-specific data (e.g. dates / times, reference numbers, etc.); team member users and permissions; supplier companies and users.
- A new Templates page is accessible from the Requests table for adding templates, managing them, and using them to create new draft requests.
- Templates can be renamed and deleted via the Templates page.
- Templates created by all users can be seen across the company team. Only users with the Send requests permission can create, use and manage templates.
Empty stage warning
- For multi-stage requests, the buyer-side Suppliers page now shows a warning message if there are no suppliers in the currently active stage.
- Buyers can resolve this warning by moving 1 or move suppliers into the active stage.
Supplier referral email
- Supplier users whose company is awarded a request will receive an email shortly after award inviting them to refer other users to join DeepStream.
- Users are prevented from uploading empty files (those with 0 bytes).
- Fixed the alignment of a user image in the exchange popup from the buyer-side collated comments page.
- Fixed an issue which could cause public company profiles to be styled incorrectly
User experience improvements
- The panel which suppliers see before they respond with an intention to bid or when moving to a new stage has been updated. Text changes have been made to clarify and reassure that an intention to bid can be withdrawn later, and reinforce that a response must be made before the deadline passes.
- The Intention to proceed deadline field has been deprecated for new requests. Going forward, buyers can create additional stages where a separate deadline is required for this purpose. Requests which are already live and use this field are still supported and will be unaffected.
