In our latest update we have merged the Contract File and Details tabs under the Overview tab. In this way, legal teams can save time jumping between views for to enter and verify data. This enables teams to have a better record and awareness of their contractual obligations, so they can manage them proactively.
The most important document - the contract document - used to live in a separate tab to the LawVu fields data. When the contract changed, it was difficult to see that the fields needed updating and time consuming to jump between views to do it.
By bringing the Contract File and Details tabs together, we make it easier for our customers to keep their data up to date. Accurate and up to date data, means better decisions!
We’ll go through each of the changes introduced under the Overview tab in more detail below.
The data fields are organized under two accordions:
General Information - contains the Default Fields and Special Fields
Contract Details - contains the Contract Details Fields
The accordions for General Information and Contract Details remember your activity. So if you open or close them and navigate away, they will stay in the same state for when you return.
The data fields panel can be resized or collapsed entirely so you have more space to view the contract document when needed.
We have also improved the way we display versions of the contract document. They are now color coded, so that you can easily track them. The current version displays in green, and the previous versions in yellow.
From the toolbar menu, use the available buttons to further work on your contract document:
Download - starts the download of a local copy of the contract document on your workstation
Replace - replace the existing contract document with a newer version from your workstation
Share - Email the contract document to your inbox or your colleague's email. You can add as many email addresses as you want, and optionally type a note.
Sign - send the contract document for signing. Check LawVu's Contract Lifecycle article for more information about the signing process.
Edit - open and edit the contract document with Word Online. View our article on Editing contracts with Word Online for a deeper dive.
From the file previewer you can continue to add tags to organize your contracts under labels to simplify searching and categorization. You can read more about tags in this article.
You can also view the history of the contract document, including all the changes made to it over time. Check the below animation to see how:
