Contract Connect is now even more powerful

Dear Contract Connect community,

We just wanted to take a minute or two to let you know about a few major features that we've just added to Contract Connect.

As you can see, we've been busy. Here's what's new:

New look and navigation layout
Contract Connect now has an updated look with tabs to navigate through the system, we think that you'll find it much cleaner and easier to use.

Document Groups
Document groups are a new level of organisation and flexibility for your contracts. With document groups, you can now share different documents, to different parties, from the same contract and information. For example, you could have a purchase order to your supplier and a tax invoice to your customer, both from the same order. Business is about your transactions and sales, Contract Connect now lets you organise your documents that way too.

Document Loops
Document Loops allow you to repeat almost any section of a Word document. You get the flexibility of typing into a Word processor, with all the power of Contract Connect. Good examples are where you create an invoice and you use document looping to add one or more line items or where you might want to add references to a finance loan application. Now, if you've got 1 or even 10 items, its not a problem.

Fields in PDF documents
If you have access to Adobe's Acrobat software you can now use Contract Connect to dynamically create unique documentation from PDF files. By having fields within your PDF files which are uploaded to Contract Connect, Contract Connect will now automatically insert the value of your fields into the document, just like it does with Word documents. You can also use PDF documents to create contract templates as well, allowing the most detailed and intricate graphic designs to be included in your documents that you share with your customers.

Instructional videos
Getting new users on board and using Contract Connect is about to be even easier and faster than before with clear and easy to follow instructional videos explaining how to using many aspects of Contract Connect.

Download My Content
Contained in a simple compressed file, available from the "Settings" tab, Download My Content allows an extra level of flexibility and peace of mind that documents are available when working offline.

There's also lots more minor changes that are too numerous to mention here, but if you've got any questions about the above, or Contract Connect, head to our support page at

The Contract Connect Team.
