Exploring the Question Library

Objectives

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Explain what a Question represents in SAP Fieldglass.
  • Create a Question Library in SAP FIeldglass.

Question Library

Users can distribute Statements of Work to multiple suppliers using the SOW Bid functionality. SOW Bid functionality is designed for buyers who have a project requiring a statement of work but do not have a particular supplier selected. An SOW Bid can be created and sent to multiple suppliers for review and feedback, and the buyer can then select an appropriate supplier for the project.

SOW Bids often include questions to help assess the suitability of suppliers. Suppliers would be required to answer the questions when responding to the bid, and buyers would use answers to determine whether the supplier is capable of completing the project.

Questions can be added manually to SOW Bids, in the same way that characteristics can be collected into libraries, a Question Library can be created to maintain a collection of commonly used questions.

Configure a Question Library

WorkingNet’s data center expansion project requires them to consider some vendors they’ve never used before. To determine the suitability of new vendors, they would like some questions created for use on SOW Bids.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, it’s your job to create those questions.
