Internal Files

If you need to upload files to an active (i.e., not Archived) project for use in internal reviews (for example, scoring instructions), you can do so by utilizing our Internal Files feature.

First, log into Bonfire and navigate to your project's Project Details page. Scroll down to the Files section and click the Upload button:


You should then see an Upload Internal File modal pop up. Within the Internal Files upload option, you have the ability to upload multiple files at once by dragging and dropping them into the box provided, or choose Browse Files to locate the file saved on your computer. It is recommended to provide a description of the file for your internal users, however it is not required. Once you have selected all the files needed, hit the Upload button:Internal_File_Upload.jpg

This will automatically upload a file for internal use. This document will not be visible to the public or any external users.

NOTE: If you need to upload an internal vendor submission, please see our How do I internally upload vendor submissions into Bonfire? page.


Internal Files within Project Templates

For organizations with the File Library module, users will be able to import internal files to a template via their File Library.

For more information on how to upload files to project templates from your File Library, please see the Add Files to Project Templates from your File Library section in our Bonfire Solicitation Builder (File Library and Drafting) article.


Editing Files within Project Drafts

For organizations with the Bonfire Solicitation Builder (File Library and Drafting) module, users will be able to edit internal and public files within a project draft via the In-App Document Editor. These files are NOT linked to templates, so updates to these files will not update files within project templates nor the file library - changes to these files will remain within the project draft itself.

To open these files within the In-App Document Editor, navigate to a project that is still in its draft stage and click on Files on the left hand side. Ensure that there is at least one editable file (.doc or .docx) uploaded to either the internal or public files section. Once you have located the Word file that you wish to edit, simply open the Actions menu associated with that file and select Open in Editor:


For more information on editing files with the In-App Document Editor, please see the ​Editing and Formatting Features​​​ section in our Bonfire Solicitation Builder (File Library and Drafting) article.
