You can log into the Premium Vendor Portal at https://vendor.bonfirehub.com.
Once you have logged in, you'll be directed to your main Recommend Opportunities page, as shown:
From here, you have several options for how you would like to view your Opportunities! You can search for any keyword or organization name or by location down to the provincial/state level. You can also combine these two search parameters for more specific results (e.g., searching "facilities" when selecting only New York will only return opportunities related to facilities taking place in New York).
You can also choose to Follow opportunities, as shown below:
What Happens When I Follow an Opportunity?
Following an opportunity on your Premium Vendor portal is a great way to be notified of project updates! Once you follow an opportunity, you will automatically receive email notifications regarding Public Notices, Addenda, or important project dates and deadlines. You will also be able to view a list of all Opportunities you have Followed by clicking the Following section, as shown below.
Can I Unfollow an Opportunity?
Yes! To Unfollow an opportunity, simply click the Unfollow button for the opportunity.
However, we recommend that all vendors only Follow opportunities that they wish to receive all notifications and updates for.
Viewing Open Public Opportunities
To view Open Public Opportunities, simply click on the All link:
From this screen, you can also choose to Follow opportunities of interest.
Marking Your Opportunities As Viewed
Users have the option to check an opportunity as viewed by using the checkbox. This will then gray out the opportunity so it is easily identified as viewed.
This feature allows users to keep track of opportunities that have already been looked at, by anyone in the account, saving time and effort. Users will not have to look at the same opportunity twice, helping them keep track of their work. This information will also be easily filterable in the list.
Users can then filter to see only ones that have not been viewed or ones that they have already viewed.
- Users can mark an opportunity as viewed in any of their tabs
- Opportunities marked as viewed are saved for future reference
Changing Your Settings
