Some of the linked screens in a Contract and Company Profile, such as the Attach Documents screen in the Events Profile, now contain an expand/collapse toggle icon, which can be used to expand and collapse the viewing area of the screen within the profile.
- Ticket CON-6048 – Invalidated Flow Record Added to History Screen in Profiles. When a user invalidates a flow in a Contract, Company, or Project Profile, a Flow Invalidated record is added to the History screen in the profile. The Flow Invalidated record includes the name of the person who invalidated the flow, along with a date/time stamp.
- Ticket CON-6406 – Delete Option for Completed Workflows. Users can now delete a completed workflow. Previously, only incomplete workflows could be deleted, while completed workflows were retained in the Completed Workflows view of the Workflows browse screen.
- Tickets CON-6934 and CON-7340 – Clause Revisions and Revision Tracking. Users can now revise a clause stored in their Clause Library and have Novatus recognize the change as a revision. The additions/deletions to the clause are tracked, along with the name of the user who made the change and the date of the change. Revisions to an individual clause are viewed in the Clause Profile screen, while revisions to several clauses can be identified by running a search query.
- Ticket CON-7252 – Save Button in Original Expiration Date Window.

If an Administrator deletes a scorecard and a user then clicks on a link to this scorecard from an email message, the user receives a message stating that the scorecard has been deleted.

- Ticket CON-7364 – Users with Contract Requester Role Receive Document Package Invitation Email with Misdirected Link. When a user who holds the limited role of Requester receives an email message inviting them to join a Document Package Team, the link in the email message now correctly directs them to the Document Packages browse screen, instead of the My Requests screen.
- Ticket CON-7404 – Filter List in Report Wizard Not Loading in Timely Manner.

- Ticket CON-7576 – Auto-Populate With Matches Feature Not Working Correctly in Advanced Edit.

- Ticket CON-7656 – Document Package Cannot Be Completed When Signatory Declines Providing their eSignature in DocuSign. Users can now complete (close) a document package even if one of the signatories does not sign the document electronically in DocuSign.
- Ticket CON-7657 – Java Error in Uploading Document to Contract Profile. Users no longer receive a Java Runtime error when uploading a new document to a Contract Profile from the Documents screen. This error occurred only in Preview, and despite the error message, the document upload was accomplished successfully.
- Ticket CON-7680 – Contract Responsibility List Not Populating for Action in Profile Rule.
