Viewing Global Documents

The Global Documents browse screen contains documents that are available to all users for viewing, downloading, and for use with many of the program features. The browse screen provides a central location to store the documents that need to be accessed by all users, such as a standard contract in draft form.

Global Document records

View all the global documents at your disposal. To access a global document, click on a document record to open its Document Profile where you can edit the document's information, directly edit the document in Word in Novatus, download it, upload a revision, compare revisions, move the document to another profile, or delete the document.


Document Revision Number

If more than one version of the document exists, a number other than "1" appears in the Revision column. To view a document with more than one revision, click on the document record to display the Global Document Profile.

Note: The Revisions section of the Global Document Profile lists all the revisions to the document, along with a download icon that allows you to download a copy of any of the revisions to the document.


Search option

To quickly locate a document, type the first few letters of the document name or other identifier in the Search field, and click theimage235.png icon. To clear the filter, click on the image236.png icon.

Note: If you only know part of the document name or other identifier, use a leading and/or trailing wild card (denoted by an asterisk "*"). For example, if you wanted to search for all global documents that deal with final contracts, you would enter *final* in the Search field.

Important: Use the Search Filter to limit the fields that are searched by clicking on the button to display a list of searchable fields. Select only the check box(es) for the field(s) you want to search to guarantee accurate results.
