Changing Dates On Requests

Changing the date of a request event (most commonly the "Vendor responses due" event) is easily done from the request's summary page. Let's look at how to do this. 

Editing Dates

We can easily edit dates on a request by clicking the edit button at the top of the request's review page as shown in the screenshot:

When you click this button a popup will appear with a warning about changing details on a request that looks like this: 

We only include this warning to let people know that editing their request after vendors have received it can cause some issues. In the context of changing event dates in Vendorful, we can fairly safely change these dates without affecting any responses that vendors have submitted or ones they are currently working on. We only use these dates to inform users of upcoming deadlines. Vendors can submit responses even after the "Vendor responses due" date has passed. We don't want to dictate how you run your request so we leave it up to you to decide if you'd like to honor late submissions. 

Once we are in edit mode the dates section will change to the date picker that appears when creating a request. 

Once you have set your new dates you can go back to the top of the screen to save your changes. 

Once these changes are saved any vendors participating in the request will be notified by email that changes have been made.
