We have re-designed the buy grid in the service provider ‘Buying’ tab with a more modern UI and added functionality, allowing users to take action straight from the grid without going into the ‘Buying Details’ page. In addition to the updated estimate grid, we have added the order information grid, which gives users a concise summary of all orders.
The estimate grid contains information about RFEs, suppliers and estimates. Directly from the grid under the ‘Method’ column, users can manage suppliers and RFEs. Users can also customize their views of the estimate grid by applying filters (via the cog icon in the top right corner) to the suppliers and their corresponding estimates. The filters will include; ‘hide suppliers with no estimate’, ‘hide unregistered suppliers’, ‘show lowest three estimates’ and ‘show all suppliers’. The top left corner of the grid will indicate the current filter selection. By default, no filter is applied. The estimate information grid will be visible with the chosen estimate(s) highlighted.
The order information grid contains information about the final order(s) – name, specs, quantity ordered, total price and order status. The service provider can change the status of the order as it progresses (i.e. from Ordered to Shipped to Delivered). The order information grid will appear only after order(s) have been awarded. The service provider can also cancel an order straight from this grid.
