If a user would like to re-quote, and if the Manufacturer Part Number (MPN) has been quoted previously, then the previously quoted information can be automatically filled. The Auto Fill button only appears when you have a previously quoted part within the Request for Quote (RFQ). If you have previously quoted a part with that price, then it is in LevaData System and it will speed up the process of doing re-quotes when you use this feature.
When re-quoting, the latest response will be taken into consideration. You are re-establishing that this is the price for the part and whatever the time frame is that is being requested in the quote, you are re-establishing the price to meet the parameters that the buyer is asking.
You can set how long the quote will be considered. Depending on the template, there could be an RFQ for the next four quarters of the calendar year, the supplier may re-iterate that they have already quoted the price for the first two quarters but may need to modify it for the last two quarters due to other pricing variables.
Once selected, the user needs to confirm the auto fill before proceeding:
Special Note: If the user wants to Export to Excel, they should first perform the Autofill Previous Price Quote action and then after that is complete, click to Export.
