Setting Up a Company Quick Tip

This page applies to: Conga Contracts (formerly Novatus)

The Quick Tip option allows Administrators to provide instructions or additional information that will assist users in making the correct selection in a field list, or entering the correct type of information into a field. A quick tip is usually a phrase or a short sentence that provides guidance when users have several items to choose from in a Contract Profile field list. Quick tips are also used to ensure users populate a field correctly (e.g., use the correct format for inputting a DUNS number or Tax ID number).
