Working with Project Notes

Overview

This feature must be enabled prior to use. Contact the Support team at support@responsive.io to enable it.

This article outlines how to manage Project Notes, such as any special requirements or conditions that the signing parties have agreed to fulfill as part of the RFx Project.

Project Notes can be leveraged to track obligations or commitments alongside a project that you have agreed to fulfill. This feature is flexible and customizable to the unique needs of each of our clients. Some examples of obligations/commitments you might track include:

  • Legal
  • IT
  • Customer Service
  • Product or Service Requirement
  • Data Privacy and Integrity

The name of this feature is customizable (Project Notes can be relabeled as Obligations, for example). Contact the Support team if you would like to customize the feature name.

Permissions

You must have either the Super Admin or Admin with All Permissions role in order to access the Organization Settings to create and manage project notes.

Select the applicable tab for your edition of Responsive.
