Navigating the Workspace
The Workspace is where you'll spend a lot of your time in the service; finding, following, and keeping track of proposals.
When you first log into the Bid Express: New Roads service at bidx.com, you'll be taken to the Workspace's Dashboard tab. Here's what you'll see and do on the Dashboard tab.
If you have selected favorite counties and items, you'll see a box at the top of your Dashboard that displays your personalized proposal recommendations. These are proposals match your preferences for areas to work and items to work with.
Learn more about recommended proposals.
Underneath the recommended proposals, you'll find all of your followed proposals in one spot.
Click anywhere on the followed proposal's tile and a panel will slide out on the right side of your screen. From there you can click a link at the top to see the full proposal.
You'll also find a calendar here on the Dashboard, automatically populated with the letting dates of your favorite agencies. There's a dot under dates that have a proposal deadline.
Click on a dotted date to see the cut-off time, agency name, and the number of proposals in the letting. Click on the cut-off time to view the full letting for that date.
This is where you can view and edit your favorite items and counties.
Click on the Edit button in the top right of either Favorites box to search, add, or remove a favorite item or county.
