Questions for Purchaser viewing only

Hi team,

When creating RFX's, can you alert me of how you insert questions which are for 'purchaser viewing only' ?

There doesn't seem to be a function available on the page. I need this for some scoring issues which i have when posing, 'If not type questions'.

Many thanks.

Leon

    Hi Leon,

    For any type of question, there is a 'Response Required' checkbox which can be left uncheked if you want to make the Supplier response optional. Meaning, Supplier will will view the question but it will not be mandatory for him to input a response.

    You can also put in comment in the 'Comment for Collaborators' field which can tell the other scorers what to look for in the response from the Supplier.

    Is this what you were looking for?

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Many thanks for this, but unfortunately that wasn't the response I was after.

    When collaborators are scoring, some questions may be applicable for some candidates, yet not for the other. With this in mind, we still need all scores being scored - which means a question for 'Internal Use Only' will be applicable - so we can score within that question if required in order to 'average out' the scores - so one supplier isn't at a dis-advantage because he doesnt need to answer a question that another supplier may have to...Do you understand what i'm trying to get at?

    Any ideas / thoughts would be great.

    Many thanks.

      Hi

      What I understand of your requirement is that you need to keep some questions/ Sections visibility restricted to Purchaser Only . Unfortunately this is not possible.However I can suggest some workarounds which may apply to your business case:

      some questions may be applicable for some candidates, yet not for the other. With this in mind, we still need all scores being scored

      Here you can set question section scoring method preference to Manually Score. All the questions would be visible to all the suppliers but you can designate which section of questions is meant for which supplier. Once you receive responses from supplier you would manually assign score keeping in consideration your reservations.

      You can decide on a neutral score to be given for question that were not meant for the supplier.

      In case you simply dont want suppliers to have visibility to all the questions, you need to create seperate RFx events for such suppliers from within a project.In this case each supplier would only answer the questions meant for him/ her and from multiple RFx events you can select the one to be awarded based on scores obtained.
