rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


It is not uncommon to propose to filter contents according to dates, and in particular depending on the year. How to filter content from a view based on years from a date field? We have an immediate solution using the Search API module coupled with Facets. This last module allows us very easily to add a facet, to a view, based on a date field of our content type, and to choose the granularity (year, month, day) that we wish to expose to the visitors. But if you do not have these two modules for other reasons, it may be a shame to install them just for that. We can get to our ends pretty quickly with a native Views option, the contextual filter. Let’s discover in a few images how to get there.
