The Contract Profile contains basic information for the contract, such as its value, purpose, status, effective and expiration dates, and renewal information, as well as links to stored data, including contract documents, events, and document packages that are used to negotiate contracts and obtain electronic signatures on final documents.
When the Contract Profile is in edit mode, you can create an event alert for the original expiration date and manage the responsibilities associated with the contract.
Open a Contract Profile from the Recently Viewed Contracts portlet in your Dashboard or the All Contracts browse screen, or use the Elastic Search feature to locate the contract.
