Auto Action Panel


This option is available if Salesforce, NetSuite, or CPQ  is integrated with CLM. CLM enables you to automatically execute a predefined action after the workflow action is executed in CLM. You can specify the information that must be sent to the integrated systems and also specify a trigger rule if required to automatically change the status of a contract after the workflow action is executed.
