Creating a New Message

To create a new member message, click on the “Create message” button. This will then show a new page with fields to enter the details about the new message being created.

A “Pickup location” and “Delivery to location” field will appear at the top of the page with a map underneath. As you type in the location text an auto-suggest of locations will appear for you to choose from, and once a location has been selected the map that appears underneath will show a red pin on the location entered. The position of this pin can be changed by clicking and dragging the pin to the correct location.

The other basic fields that must be filled are the pickup date, delivery date and details (specific delivery requirements).

Advanced fields are also available, which allow you to enter specific details such as weight, dimensions, number of pieces and the nature of the goods to be moved.

The “Select members” button will show you a list of WFA member companies to whom you can send this message.

The member companies will be ordered by distance from delivery location by default, but this can be changed to “Order by distance from pickup location” using the dropdown menu on the top right of the page. The search box also allows you to search for a member company by name or address.

To select the member companies that you want to receive your message, use the tickbox that appears beside the company name on the list. There is also a “Select all” tickbox which can be used to send the message to all WFA member companies.

Once the member companies have been selected, you can now use the “Submit message” to send this message to the member companies. The member companies will be notified of your message and they can then login to respond.

 

View Member Message Responses

On this page you can see a list of member messages that you have created and see the status of each. A search/filter appears at the top of the page allowing you to find member messages by date, location or company.

The list of messages shows basic details about the message along with details such as the number of responses and average quote value.

The “Actions” dropdown allows you to view responses, edit the request or change the status of the request to cancelled.

From the view responses page, you can see responses that you have received from the companies that have received your message. If the response includes a quote value, you can either:

To respond, you can fill the quote value, currency and explanation fields and then click the “Submit” button. This will send a notification back to the WFA member company with your response, allowing them in turn to respond to you by either accepting, rejecting or asking you a question.
