To close a request before the scheduled close date, enter Fairmarkit's dashboard, click on the Open tab to see all requests out for bid. Locate the request that needs to be closed. To the far right of the title, next to the Received column there are three little vertical dots, commonly referred to as the "hamburger" button.
Click the hamburger icon as indicated above, then select the "Close" option.
Once selected, the request will move from the Open list of RFQs and will now appear under Closed.
A buyer can also close a bid from the edit page of the RFQ by selecting Close on the ACTIONS menu.
Both methods of closing the request will result in the RFQ appearing under the Closed tab. You will now be able to award this request to the vendor of your choice.
