8.15.0 Release

New Functionality

Request for Alternative workflow

Based on feedback, we have amended the Request for Alternative workflow.  In version 8.15.0, the General Contractor creates and issues the Request for Alternative.  Once issued, the Prime Consultant is alerted and is able to Close the Request for Alternative.


General Contractor reports (Submittal, RFI, CRX)

Reports, specific and only viewable for those in the General Contractor role, are available for Submittals, RFI and CRX’s.

General Contractor Submittal Report

GC Submittal

General Contractor RFI Report

  • Age (Days) is calculated as the difference between the current date and the date the RFI was Submitted on.
  • Response Time (Days) is calculated as the difference between the date the RFI Closed on and Submitted on Date.


See the below “Enhancements – RFI” for further details on the Short Description column.

General Contractor CRX Report



Request for Information

A text box, called Short Description, is available for the General Contractor to store details of the RFI for reporting purposes only.  Text entered into this area is limited to a maximum of 200 characters.


CRX Standard Report

CRX dollar values will populate on the CRX Standard Report when the CRX is in Submitted or Closed status only.


We have included the ability to Tag to a Change document.
