The control list is listed alphabetically by trade. You are able to view the company and contact details by clicking on the links in blue.
The green-dot icon in the last column indicates that the vendor received the RFQ directly from you.
In the case where the icon is red, it means that the vendor is an Open Quotes subscriber and has accessed the RFQ through the “Open Pricing” feature. When a vendor has accessed the RFQ through “Open Pricing”, they may have chosen to price it online or it will show on the “Control List” because they have viewed it to see if they are interested in pricing the RFQ.
