Objective

To create and link an RFI, Change Event, or any other correspondence item to an existing correspondence item.

Background 

Correspondence items are often used as precursor business processes to an RFI, Change Event, or a different Correspondence type. A common example of this is where an NOD (Notification of Delay) is approved and converted into an EOT (Extention of Time) to extend the project duration. The Create & Link action on correspondence items enables users to quickly create new items, carry over any essential information and attachments from the originating correspondence item, and then link the items so users can easily reference the origin event as well as any other business processes linked to an individual correspondence item.

Things to Consider 

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Standard' or 'Admin' level permission on the project's Correspondence tool.
