Disabling and Deleting Contract Types

A contract type can be temporarily disabled if it will be needed again in the future, or permanently deleted if this contract type is no longer used by your organization.

  A contract type can only be deleted if it is not being used by a Contract Profile. Also, deleting a contract type will also delete all of the sub-types for the contract type.

Fields List category

Locate the Contract category by scrolling through the alphabetized list until you find the Contract (10 Items) category. You can also enter "contract" in the Search field, and click the icon, but only seven (7) of the Contract lists will display since three (3) of the lists begin with the letter "A" (Additional Party Type, Address Type, and Agreement Type).
