Bidding - Release Notes

Below are the notable changes to the project's Bidding tool.

 

Recent Changes

blind Bidding Controls (05/15/2024)

You can now assign a Blind Bidding Manager to a bid package with blind bidding enabled. The Blind Bidding Manager will have the option to show and hide submitted bids inside of a bid package. They will also receive an email notification upon the creation of a bid package. Actions associated with blind bidding are also recorded in the change history of the bid package. These include: Blind bidding being turned on or off, and blind bidding managers being assigned, removed or replaced. See Show or Hide Blind Bids on a Bid Package.

Import Sections on Bid Forms (03/22/2024)

You can now import sections when importing bid forms to Procore. Sections are also useful if you want to send one bid form out to a company that covers multiple trades, since you can add each trade name as its own section with the relevant line items. See Import Bid Forms to the Bidding Tool.

Copy a bid Package (03/18/2024)

After you create a new bid package, you can copy bid forms from previous bid packages to the new one. You can choose which bid forms to copy, and if you want to copy both bidders and line items to the new bid package. See Copy Bid Forms from a Previous Bid Package.

Note: This feature is only available for bid packages created after this date. 

Trade Filter (03/14/2024)

Two new filters are available for you to filter bid forms. You can now filter bid forms by 'Bid Form' and 'Directory Trade'. See Search for and Filter Companies to Add to a Bid Form.

Bid Form Sections (02/01/2024)

In projects using Bid Management Enhanced Experience, you can now add sections to bid forms. See Create a Bid Form

Sections provide greater flexibility and better organization for line items. Sections are also useful if you want to send one bid form out to a company that covers multiple trades, since you can add each trade name as its own section with the relevant line items. 

Note: This feature is only available for bid packages created after this date. 

Search Bidders on a Bid Package (01/16/2024)

For projects using Bid Management Enhanced Experience, a search bar has been added to the Bidding tab of bid packages so that you can quickly find specific bidders on your bid list. You can search by company name or bid recipient name, and partial searches are supported. See Filter and Sort Bidding Information

Invite Paying Procore Customers to Bid Using the Procore Construction Network (12/04/2023)

In projects using the new Bid Management experience, you can now invite paying Procore companies to bid, giving you access to even broader collaborator network. See Add Bidders from the Procore Construction Network to a Bid Form.

Flexible Response types for Bid Forms (10/09/2023)

Instead of being restricted to one accounting method for an entire bid package, you now have the flexibility to choose an accounting method for each line item in the new 'Field Response Type' column on bid forms. See Create a Bid Form

As part of this release, new projects using Bid Management Enhanced Experience no longer have separate accounting method settings for bid packages. See How do I set the accounting method for bids?

General Items and CSV Import Features now available for ERP Integrated Accounts (09/13/2023)

Users in accounts that are ERP integrated can now add general items to bid forms and create bid forms from CSV imports. See Import Bid Forms to the Bidding ToolCreate a Bid Form, and Do I need to use cost codes on a bid form?

You can now create multiple bid forms at once by filling out and uploading a CSV file template. See Import Bid Forms to the Bidding Tool. You can choose to download a template with cost codes, or a blank template without cost codes. 

Add General Items to a Bid Form (06/22/2023)

You can now add general items without cost codes by using the new 'Plain Text' option for line items. See Create a Bid Form and Do I need to use cost codes on a bid form? This allows more flexibility for defining and controlling bid scope.
