Adding an External Person

You can easily add external people to your Address Book so you can send them email messages whenever they need to be kept informed, or their input is needed, during the contract creation, negotiation, management, renewal, or archival processes.  Although an external person cannot access Conga Contracts (formerly Novatus) directly, they can participate in document/esignature packages and supplier registrations using the Portal, and the eSignature cloud when their electronic signature is required on documents.
