Contract Types

A Contract Type can be any type of contract, such as Non-Disclosure Agreement, Master Service Agreement, Indemnity Agreement, Real Property Lease and so on. Your organization may use numerous types of contracts to address various business scenarios.  

CLM enables you to upload predefined templates for each contract type. Templates contain boilerplate contract information and attribute tags that are pre-approved by your organization. 
You can edit the uploaded templates online in the template editor, without having to download the files.  You can also create templates from scratch in the template editor. 
You can configure each template to simulate the approval workflow followed in your organization and make the templates available to users through permission settings. Users can then create new contracts using these templates and CLM will automatically enforce the approval workflow to progress the contract to completion. 

Note: You can edit the uploaded templates online in the template editor, without having to download the files.
