How can I change an RFI Number?

In order to have the RFI’s “Change #” button visible, the following requirements must be met:

  1. You must be the General Contractor on the project.
  2. The document must be assigned to the General Contractor.
  3. The document must be in the submitted status.

Once these requirements are met, you will see the “Change #” button next to the RFI# field on the document properties as shown:

If this button is not showing up for you, it is because the document is not assigned to your company. 

Clicking the button will launch a pop-up with a field to enter a new RFI number. This pop-up will also include an information line at the bottom stating the next RFI number in the sequence. 

Only numeric characters may be used for RFI numbering, and RFI’s will always have four digits. The number may be changed to any number that is not currently used. If you renumber an RFI to a higher number than currently in use, subsequent RFIs will start with the next higher number in the sequence: e.g. If you are on number 0007, and you renumber an RFI to #0100, the next RFI created will become # 0101.
