Bid Invitation (Notification and Output)

Hi Gurus,

I have no clue how to manage Output / Messages for Bid Invitations. I need the system to do the following:

1) Send email notification to Bidders in the bid invitation and also a notification when I make changes to the bid Invitation - How and where do I configure the message

2) Post a notification on a portal

3) Print the bid Invitation with all the attributes (to bidders who cannot respond electronicaly), so that the same can be posted to the vendor and then the purchase can perform surrogate bidding.

    1. make sure email set up is done as per note 455140. To send e-mails after bid is published for the bid invitation transaction 'BID' attach relevant event schema. This will take care of sending mails whenver bid invitation is published or changed.

    2. Provide the role BBP_EC_SUS_BIDDER to the bidders to enable them to see bid invitaions and send bids from SUS portal. For this you also need to enable SSO (single sign on) between EBP and SUS. Please refer the below link for further information.


    3. It is possible to down load the Bid invitation. Further update the mail id of the bidder with your id so that you can receive the bid invitation smartform. This you can take a print out and send it to bidders. You can make config setting in SPRO 'define actions for document output' to send the bid invitation smartform.

    Hope this clarifies all your doubts here.
