Release Notes up to 2021-12-20 Contract Management (Sprint 26/27)

New + Improved

Forecasting ^^

We have created new functionality to enable Forecasting on contracts. There are two workflows - Cost Forecasting and Carbon Forecasting. The user is able to forecast retrospectively as well as into the future. The latest Cost & Carbon Forecasting amount and date is displayed on the dashboard.


The latest cost forecast is displayed on the dashboard


Forecast reports are also available via Aggregate reports ^^.

New Support Functionality

Users on our shared instance will be able to contact customer support via a support button. The chat widget opens a chat on a new tab and allows an end user to chat directly with our support team.

Improved access to Aggregate reports ^^

Users with View All rights can now create and download Aggregate reports.

proved functionality for access to our FastDraft Instances

We have added extra support on the Retry logic for our PaaS instances to allow the system to retry an operation if the cloud resource (ie: database) is paused or is being scaled up/down or being recovered. This prevents a warning message and the user repeating the original request.

Project Code enhancement

We have added the project code and name into the project field on the Contract overview screen. T

We have also added the project code to all registers and Aggregate reports.

Improved performance with Asite ^^

Further improvements have been made to our Asite integration module to aid better searching, targeted folder selection, paging and caching.

Improved permission checks on file downloads

Following the results of our latest penetration testing we have added the following checks;

  • Ensure a user is unable to download a deleted file.
  • Enable users with contract level access to be able to download any file related to the contract.

TSC contracts

Further improvements have been made to our NEC4 TSC contract templates.

  • The Revised total and Revised date for each task order is now viewable on the Task register.
  • We have added the ability to link a compensation event to a Task order.
  • When a compensation event is raised, the relevant task order can also be updated on the form.

Improved Draft Reply Communication functionality

We have added the ability for users who don’t have the ability to communicate notifications to notify via e-mail another user who has communication permissions on the same workflow when a draft reply notice has been created:



^^ Items marked with a double up arrow require specific permissions or subscription types before they are available.
