Activity Templates for Contracts
|Top Previous Next|
Each contract in the Commit system can be assigned a "Linked Activity Template." This template can be linked to a contract and applied whenever a user copies this contract to a new date range or creates a new contract based on the contract to which the template is assigned.
When should it be used?
Linked Activity Templates can be useful for situations in which you want to copy a contract with all its data (the block terms, contract-price, etc.) along with a set of activities that are typical to this contract.
For example, if you have a monthly service contract that requires you to perform the same actions each month (on-site visit for preventative maintenance, server checkup, etc.), you can simply assign a Linked Activity Template to that contract. By attaching the template, every time you renew the contract for the following month, all of the monthly Tasks, Tickets, and Appointments associated with this template can be automatically created as well.
Each of these predefined contracts would already include all of the plan terms—custom pricing, default items, special internal terms, block size, etc., as well as a linked activity template, which defines all the activities that needs to be done once an actual contract based on this predefined one is signed. All you would need to do is copy the predefined contract to a new one and apply the Linked Activity Template.
See the Activity Templates user guide for more details.
