On the Alternates/Options tab, you can specify alternative or optional items to be priced by the bidder. Alternates and options defined on the requisition level are copied over when creating the inquiry from the requisition. These alternates/options can be modified, or you can define alternates and options here on the inquiry level, based on requisition comments. If an alternative or optional item is entered on the inquiry level, you cannot delete or change the description of the item on the quote level even if you are the buyer.
The alternates defined here are not the same as alternates defined for line items.
The order sequence of the alternate or option is entered in the Seq field. Select Alternate or Option from the drop-down list in the Type field. In the Description field, enter the description of the alternative or optional item.
