Designate the Default RFI Manager for a Project's RFIs

Objective

To designate the person responsible for the RFI Manager role for your project's RFIs tool. 

Background

In Procore, an RFI Manager is the person responsible for overseeing an RFI throughout its lifecycle. This person is the gatekeeper between the RFI's Creator and the Design Team and is responsible for reviewing all Draft RFIs and either (1) providing a response to the RFIs and closing them out, or (2) opening the draft RFIs, assigning them a number, and then assigning them to the appropriate member of the design team, who then provides a response to the RFI's question.
