Attention all BidCQ Users: Follow the below steps to make the fields or columns mandatory for your Bid request:

  1. Navigate to Configuration > Supplier data > Required BidCQ Fields.

  2. To add new criteria, click on the ‘+’ button; it will pop up with the "Edit" window for Required BidCQ Fields.

3. Give the name as per your choice, select the desired Supplier Type and make the selection of the column from the Required Pricing Columns drop-down.

Supplier Type encompasses four options:

  1. All Suppliers: This option will make the selected column required for all the suppliers.

  2. Preferred Supplier: If "Preferred Supplier is equal to true" is selected, it will make the selected column required for all the preferred suppliers. If "Preferred Supplier is equal to false" is selected, it will make the selected column required for other than preferred suppliers.

  3. Supplier Groups: This option will make the column required for selected supplier groups.

Specific Suppliers: This option will make the column required for a specifically selected supplier only.

The pencil symbol will allow you to edit the criteria name and helps you to mark the criteria true-false.
