Adding a Contract Type

This page applies to: Conga Contracts (formerly Novatus)

A user with the List Admin permission creates the contract types used to categorize the contracts stored in Conga Contracts (formerly Novatus).  A List Admin can set up a hierarchy to accurately identify each contract type and facilitate searching and/or reporting when locating a general contract type or specific sub-type.  For example, if your company sells software and also provides support for the software, a Sales contract type could be created and contain two different types of contracts: Products (for customers who only purchase the software) and Products & Services (for customers who purchase the software and customer support).

1.  Click Admin in the Navigation Toolbar, and click the Lists link in the menu.

2.  In the List Administration screen, enter contract in the Search field and press the ENTER key on your keyboard.

3.  When the alphabetized results display in the Fields List section, locate the Contract (7 Items) category.

4.  In the Contract category, click the Contract Type list to display the existing types in right side of the screen.

To display all 10 default lists in the Contract Profile screen, scroll through the alphabetized list until you locate the Contract (10 Items) category, which includes the lists that do not begin with the word contract: Additional Party Type, Address Type, and Agreement Type.
