Create Alerts

CLM enables you to create alerts to notify specified recipients about: 

  • important contract dates that are nearing
  • contract tasks that are pending due to which the contract status has not changed

CLM sends out email notifications to the designated recipients on specified dates, for the specified frequency, using the specified email template. 


  • CLM can send an alert to the specified recipients every day for 7 days before a Contract Termination Date.
