This feature is a two-level feature, which allows you to see exactly who has downloaded your Public Files. The first level, Document Takers/Public Document Takers, allows a broad overview of the documents that have been downloaded for Project Owners and for Vendors. Public Vendor Fields allows vendors the option to see more details about the Document Takers.
NOTE: This feature is not enabled by default, please contact Support@GoBonfire.com to have it turned on.

In order for someone to download a file, they must be logged into their Bonfire profile and this is how we are able to track what we call "Document Takers".

The Buyer also has the option to make any of their Custom Vendor Registration Fields public as well by selecting the "Public" box when creating/editing their Custom Registration Fields.
Vendor Diversity and Public Document Takers
Once you have set up your Vendor Diversity Tracking, every vendor registration field you make Public will be displayed in the Public Document Takers Table. This makes the information more easily accessible to vendors and allows them to see public information about who has downloaded the project documents.
Here's an example:
Please note that if the Buyer has not enabled Public Document Takers, no vendor registration field will be shown even if the field is configured to be public.
