You can accept one or multiple firms and eliminate firms from consideration.
When you click "view proposal" you can then click "manager proposal" and choose from a series of options to either accept that firm's proposal silently and then proceed to accept additional proposals or you can accept the proposal and eliminate the other firms from consideration (see screenshots below).
When you eliminate firms, you can customize the standard email that would be sent to all eliminated firms in the "Settings > Custom Emails" section.
When a firm is eliminated, any clarifications or notifications for updated stages in the RFP process will no longer go out to eliminated firms.
To customise, the email click "Custom Emails" or navigate to this option in your settings. You can create a customised message to firms of an unsuccessful proposal.
