Import Submittal item from Excel

Manually creating hundreds of Submittals one-by-one can be a very tedious work. To improve your Submittals registry creation process, we introduce import from Excel.

Managers can now use Excel spreadsheet (using our Submittals import template) to prepare your Submittals registry quicker and import hundreds of Submittals at once with a click of a button.

Import Submittal items template

To import, go to your Submittal items registry screen. You may find (available to Managers only) the “Import” button on the top-right.

Import Submittal items button

In the import dialog, click “Browse” to choose your Submittal items Excel spreadsheet. Click “Import” to upload begin the import process.

Submittal items import dialog

Once import is done, you’ll receive a confirmation email with links to all imported Submittal items.

Submittal items import email notification

If import failed (due to any data validation), you’ll receive a failure email with details. You should fix any validation errors described and re-import. Only if import fully succeeded – Submittal items will be created.

 

Note: To import, you’ll need to fill your data in our Submittals Import Template Excel. To download it, open the Import dialog. In the dialog you can find a link to download our template.

Expand RFI’s Manager permissions – allow to modify Title and Question on OPEN status

You asked – we listened. While RFI is under review (OPEN status), Managers can now modify the RFI’s title and question.

This will allow Managers to adjust or fix title/question without to delay (revert) the RFI workflow.

Send email notification to RFI’s co-reviewers and distribution list

We enabled email notifications for RFI’s co-reviewers and distribution list.

When will emails be triggered?

  • Co-reviewers members will get notified when RFI is under review (OPEN status) and their review is asked.
  • Distribution list members will get notified on any RFI status change.

RFIs “Attachments” tab

Added new “Attachments” to RFI’s details where you can quickly browse any attachment uploaded or any linked document (within Document Management) associated to the RFI.

Simply drag & drop or click “browse” to choose any file to attach.

New Submittal response types

You asked – we listened. We added new Submittal response types – “Reviewed” and “Reviewed as Noted“.

The full list of available response types is: Approved, Approved as Noted, Reviewed, Reviewed as Noted, For Record Only, Revise and Resubmit, and Rejected.

Project Management Learn Panel launched

We’ve launched a new Learn Panel for getting started with your first RFIs and Submittals steps: configuration, creating your first Submittal item, package and RFI.

Click the Learn Panel button (bottom-right screen) to access at any time.
