Revising a Clause

You can quickly and easily edit any of the clauses in your Clause Library if you want to update the language in your company's contract(s). When you revise the text in a clause, a revision record is automatically generated and the changes can be viewed from the Clause Profile screen.

Clause records

Locate the clause you want to revise, and then click on it to display its Clause Profile. You can view the clause text from the browse screen by clicking on its expand icon. To hide the text, click on the icon.


Search option

If you want to quickly locate a specific clause, type the first few letters of the clause name in the Search field, and click the icon. To clear the filter, click on the icon.

Note: You can also sort the clauses in ascending and/or descending order by name, type, and security level by clicking (and toggling) on the Name, Type, and Clause Security column headings. If you are grouping clauses by something other than category, the Category column is also listed and can be sorted in ascending and/or descending order.

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.
