Within 'Invite- Bidders- Visibility':
Users can now choose to make particular lots visible to some suppliers, and not others.
The ability to switch on bidder visibility is a new feature designed to offer the option of giving bidders greater foresight of future rounds of bidding. The benefits of this approach is that your suppliers can prepare in advance and have better clarity for internal scheduling but also helps inform their strategy.
The removal of uncertainty is good when bidders are risk averse or excessively cautious in their approach.
