Note! You need to have permission level PartnerManager to get access to the Partner function and Partner account in Cinode. Check this article to get help setting the permission.

Cinode is built around sourcing, both internally and externally. If you find the need to reach out to your external network of subcontractors - you can send out individual requests to specific partner companies or subcontractors in your network. That way you will increase your reach. There is no limit to how many subcontractors you can announce to.

In order to announce to either a partner company or a subcontractor, you must first add them to Cinode. Make sure that their name and the e-mail address that you entered when you create the subcontractor are correct.

Announcing roles will trigger an e-mail to the selected parties. The e-mail will contain general information and a link so that the recipient can log in to their Cinode account to respond to your request.
