Browse and Input Screens

This page applies to: Conga Contracts (formerly Novatus)

Conga Contracts (formerly Novatus) program screens are state-of-the art. The program uses two main types of screens: Browse (or data) screens that allow you to view a list of data records and Input screens that allow you to enter and edit information.

  The screen below depicts the All Contracts browse screen, but the same features are available in the All Companies browse screen.  Most of the features are also available in the other browse screens.
