How do I delete an Item from a BidTable?

Depending on the stage of your project, you will have different ways to edit your BidTable:

  1. Pending Stage
  2. Open Stage
  3. Evaluation Stage

Pending Stage

The simplest way to edit a BidTable is to do so before the project goes live in the Portal. To delete an item from the BidTable, select the item(s) you wish to remove, and then click on the trashcan (delete) icon:

Open Stage

Bonfire strongly encourages Buyers to not make any changes to a BidTable once the project is in the open stage. This is to avoid any issues as there could be Work-In-Progress or Completed submissions. Instead, we recommend advising Vendors about any items that will no longer be considered with a Public Notice and leaving the BidTable setup as is.

NOTE: If you leave the BidTable template as is, Vendors will still have to populate a response for these items if the "Bid/No Bid" option is not available. 

In the case that you need to delete items during the open stages, follow the same steps in the Pending Stage section of this article. To notify your Vendors of these changes you can issue a Public Notice. This is to ensure that Vendors download the most up to date template. 

Evaluation Stage

If changes were not made during the pending or open stages, the best workaround would be to make these changes once the project is closed. Once you have advised Vendors about these changes via a Public Notice, you will be able to delete items that you will no longer consider via the Order List. 

To do so, from the Project Details page go to the Submissions section, choose any submission's Scorecard (it will open the same Order List regardless).

In the Scorecard pop-up window, click Score Order List:

This will take you to the Order List. You can delete the item(s) by selecting the item(s) accordingly and then clicking Bulk Actions -> Eliminate Items:
