Recently I was working with a new seller on a project. She missed something on the spreadsheet, so I asked her to modify it.
Instead of rejecting it with the request modification, I opened up a discussion with her. She answered right away and within the hour, redelivered the file - which I like to add was done to perfection.
My thought was if she didn’t answer me within a day, I would do the request modification route. Her being new, I didn’t want her 1st experience to have a huge “Rejected” flashing across her screen, unless I had to.
It worked out well. It’s rare that I ask for modification, however, for future reference, is it better or easier for the seller, if I were to
– Request Mod or
– Open discussion/dialog without reject/mod?
