The Bid Board Tile is linked to the "Bid Board" feature in Projects. It allows a quoter, sales person, or owner to only see the items pertaining to their visibility of the business. To create the Bid Board Tile, users must navigate to the O4 Dashboard in the desktop version of OASIS. Note: creating or editing of tiles is not currently supported in browser mode.
Users must have specific security access in order to create a tile. To learn more, click here.
