In this guide, we show you what you can do with project pages, even if your supplier is inactive on the platform.
Projects on IAND come in two different states:
Project with a live supplier (all features).
Project with an inactive supplier (reduced features).
When your supplier is inactive on IAND
As soon as your project is live on IAND, you have a range of features to explore - even if your supplier is inactive (or you may never intend to invite the supplier).
Enter project information
When on your project, click 'Edit project' to see a range of options to start populating (or editing) your project.
This will populate your project header, to help bring internal visibility into a project.
Review access level
If your project is sensitive from a commercial or security perspective you can 'Change to Private' limiting access to the project page to Level A users and your team members.
Invite your team
The IAND import process automatically adds project managers named in your finance system to projects within IAND, if the project manager is active in IAND (and signed up with the same email address). Click 'Add' under Project Team to add your team members to the project.
If you cannot see Projects that you are working on, ask your project colleagues or your Super User to be added to the team.
Even if your supplier is inactive on IAND, you can still enable Innovation tracking and start capturing returns. Start by clicking 'Edit project' in the project header, to enable the Innovation tick box.
Once done you can start capturing forecast and actual innovation outcomes. Read guide.
Share internal content and request internal documentation. This module is only ever visible to your organisation.
Project features available when your supplier is live
Project Feedback: The 360° project review system requires both client and supplier to be live.
Project Contracts: Contracts can only be added to a project when your supplier is live. This is because project contracts require the other party to approve an uploaded contract.
Project Deliverables: This feature is set up to enable document sharing between client and supplier.
Inviting a supplier
You can invite a supplier to join IAND directly from your project page. You will see an 'Invite' link in the project header next to your supplier's name. Click the link and complete the short invitation form.
If you have any questions on project features and functionality when your supplier is not yet live, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
