Add Assignees to an RFI as an Assignee on an RFI


To add additional assignees to an RFI as an assignee on the RFI. 


As an assignee on an RFI, you may sometimes find that you need additional input from another team member. When that occurs, you can use the steps below to add additional assignees to the RFI. 

You are a project engineer who collaborated with second project engineer to specify the material requirements of a building exterior. To answer an RFI question about the required fire rating of the exterior cladding that was specified, you would want to add your co-engineer as an assignee to get his or her input.

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Standard' level permission or higher on the Project level RFIs tool. 
    • You must be designated as an 'Assignee' on an RFI. 
    • Your newly designated assignee must have 'Standard' or 'Admin' level permission on the RFIs tool. 
  • Additional Information:
    • There is no limit to the number of assignees that you can add.
    • To learn about who can be designated an assignee on an RFI, see Who can be designated as an assignee on a RFI?
    • When you are assigned to an RFI, the system sends you an Action Required email to notify you of your assignment. In addition, the RFI appears in the My Open Items list in the Portfolio tool. See View My Open Items in the Portfolio Tool.
    • The new assignee(s) will be marked as a required responder only if the 'Assignees Responses are Required by Default' setting is enabled. See Configure Settings: RFIs.
    • You cannot remove yourself as an assignee on an RFI unless you have permission to create or edit an RFI. See Create an RFI or Edit an RFI
