Creating Intake Requests with Bonfire

Welcome to Intake

Bonfire is excited to release Intake, a powerful set of features that will help enable Procurement Professionals meet the needs of their stakeholders faster - and with less paperwork - than ever!

Now, stakeholders and Requesters can simply fill out an easy form in order to start the Purchasing process, instead of relying on one-off emails, post-it notes or other easy-to-lose methods of communication. A simple portal for Requesters allows them to keep track of the progress of their request without have to reach out to the Procurement team, while Procurement teams can organize, assign and create Project Drafts right from Intake. 

Getting Started

Getting started with Intake is straightforward and easy!

First, navigate to your Bonfire portal, and log in. You'll see your Project Dashboard, along with the Requests tab. Click on Requests to get started!

NOTE: If you do not see the Requests tab, please contact your organizational administrator in order to grant you the necessary User Roles.

You'll then access the "My Requests" dashboard. On this page, you'll be able to see any of your existing requests, as well as start a new request by clicking on the "+ Submit a New Request" button.

The Requests Dashboard allows you to quickly and easily see the current status of your request, without having to contact your Procurement team. You also have the ability to easily search through your requests, or downloading a report of your requests' current status.

Submitting a Request

To begin creating your Request, click on +Submit a New Request on the Requests Dashboard. You'll then see a quick and easy form that you can fill out with as much or as little information as you need, provided you complete the required information marked with the red asterisk

You can also include attachments with your Request! Just drag and drop your file(s) into the Attachments box at the bottom of the Intake Request Form, and they'll be included with your request. You can upload multiple files of any type up to 1GB in size each. If you upload a file in error, click the Trash icon, then Yes, Delete to remove the file from the Request.
