A Tender Forum is a great way of displaying the answers to common supplier questions, pre-empting other suppliers asking the same question. Tender Editors can also release notices about useful information that does not necessarily need to be released as an addenda.
Suppliers can ask questions via the forum and can subscribe to receive updates about new posts via email. Any supplier who can access your tender advertisement can ask a question, but only answers to supplier questions or notices placed directly by a Tender Editor will be displayed.
The Tender Editors can also place the Tender Forum into a Read-Only mode, preventing suppliers from asking new questions but still allowing them to view the answers of previous questions. This is done by a simple toggle switch when editing the tender.
