Often as important as the contract itself are the amendments. Amendments can be used any time you need to make an addition or alteration to the contract that does not substantially alter the original contract.
In the LawVu contracts module, you can keep a record of the various amendments while still retaining the original contract.

How to Create an Amendment
To add an amendment, navigate to the Amendments Tab within a contract and click the + Add Amendment button.
This enables you to generate a new contract file (e.g. an addendum to the original), following the same contract-creation process as the original.
Use LawVu's contract Wizard or simply upload the amended version.
An "Amendment Added" confirmation message appears in the top right of the screen, and the selected contract now appears in the list of amendments.
How to View Amendments
Be aware that amendments will not appear in your standard contract grid. Even if it started as a standalone contract, once designated as an amendment, that contract will no longer appear in the grid view.
To view the amendments, use the attribute selector button to add an Amendment Count column to your contracts grid. This contains a numerical value representing the number of amendments to each contract.
Hover your cursor over this number to activate a pop-over menu listing the amendments.
Access these amendments directly from the pop-over.
