Publishing a bid package sends out the email invitations to the bidders within your package. You can publish bid packages one at a time. This allows you to invite bidders in specific bid packages at various times according to your project's needs.
Please note that if the same bidder is added to multiple bid packages, we recommend publishing all bid packages at once as a best practice. This is to ensure the subcontractor only receives one bid invite notification email detailing all bid packages they were invited to versus multiple notification emails when bid packages are published separately. For information on how to publish all or multiple bid packages at once, please reference the article, “How to publish projects on BuildingConnected.”
