Organizations can now define Custom Registration Fields that Vendors are required to fill out upon creating their Vendor Account.
Vendors can also update these values from the Settings page.
To start, select the Vendors tab from the top:
Click on the Vendors Registration Field and select Add a Vendor Registration Field.
These custom attributes can be defined where the vendor has to pick an item from a list of pre-defined options (dropdown list) OR they can type text into a text field.
In the example below we have defined 2 registration Fields already: DBE Status and Website.
DBE Status has a dropdown list with 2 answers (Yes/No), while the Website options field was left blank thereby allowing the vendor to type whatever text they desire into the text box.
As shown below we are in the process of creating a Registration Field titled "Type" which has 6 different dropdown options:
Buyers have the option to make any of the custom registration fields public. Public fields will be displayed to any viewer when a vendor is listed as a Document Taker on a project, or when the vendor is publicly awarded a bid.
Let's take a look at what a Vendor will now see. Once the vendor has created their account they will be taken to the Settings tab. Before the vendor can create their submission they will need to fill in the custom required Vendor Registration Field.
Let's take a close look at the TYPE dropdown we defined. Clicking on it should populate the 6 selectable items we defined earlier:
Pictured below is an example of a Vendor filling out the Registration Fields complete with our Custom Registration Fields:
