Export an RFI


To export an RFI.


Individual RFIs can be exported in two ways: from the list on the Items tab (PDF summary only) or from the RFI's General tab (with options for which type of response and which attachments to include). To export all of a project's RFIs as a CSV or PDF, see Export the RFIs List to CSV or PDF.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the project's RFIs tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • If the 'Only Show Official Responses to Standard and Read-Only Users' checkbox is marked (see Configure Settings: RFIs):
      • RFI exports done by a user with 'Read Only' or 'Standard' level permissions on the project's RFIs tool can only include responses marked as 'Official' unless the user is the RFI's creator with the 'Act as RFI Manager' granular permission ('Standard' only), the RFI Manager, an Assignee, or Distribution List member on the RFI.
    • If the 'Only Show Official Responses to Standard and Read-Only Users' checkbox is cleared:
      • RFI exports done by users with 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the project's RFIs tool can either include all responses or only responses marked as 'Official'.
