In this article, we’ll explore how to quickly add contract metadata in the Contract Analyzer using the Info Tab.
During the contract review workflow, you may wish to provide background information relating to the current contract (for example, to internal stakeholders or team members). This metadata can include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Annual contract value
- Contract value (e.g. dollar amount)
- Description of services
- Subject description
Inside the Info Tab
Navigate to the Info Tab on the left of the Sidebar of the Contract Analyzer.
The Info Tab contains several fields and displays the Name of the file, Description, Organizational Units, the Type of Contract selected upon upload, and the Counter Party.
All of this information is entered in the Upload a Contract menu, with the exception of Organizational Units. However, this information can be updated in the Info Tab at any time in the Analyzer.
Adding Metadata to the Organizational Units Section
You can add the desired contract metadata as an Organizational Unit. When reviewing contracts from different clients, business groups, or regions, it can be a challenge to search and sort for contracts. In DocJuris, when a contract is loaded, it can be organized into one or more Organization Units (Org Units) for better search-ability and filtering:
Contracts with an Org Unit will be labeled in the contract list and can be searched:
Upon uploading a contract into the Contract Analyzer, the Organizational Units field in the Info Tab will be blank by default until a new Org Unit is added.
You can also choose previously added Organizational Units from the drop-down list in the field. Note: Organizational Units previously added to a contract will also be available account-wide to select on subsequent contracts and/or turns.
To add contract metadata as an Organizational Unit, click inside the field and begin typing. The new Organizational Unit will appear in the drop-down menu; click the Unit to add it to the field.
The new Organizational Units will now be stored in the Info Tab for the current turn of the contract.
Viewing the Contract Data in a Screening Report Export File
Once added to the Organizational Units field, this metadata will also appear on any Screening Report that is generated and exported from the contract within the Analyzer. This is a great way to quickly review metadata about your contract at a glance, and also to share it with relevant stakeholders and team members.
To view the contract metadata in the Screening Report, first verify that the correct Playbook has been added to the contract in the Analyzer. In the left sidebar of the Analyzer, click the “Screening Report” button to download the Screening Report.
Once you have downloaded the Screening Report, double click to open the Excel file.
The metadata entered into the Organizational Units field in the Info Tab will be listed above the Screening Report columns, along with the rest of the data entered in the Info Tab.
Other Automation Options for Generating and Sharing Contract Metadata
In addition to using the Info Tab to enter and share contract metadata, there are also other options offered by DocJuris to share information in the contract request workflow.
One of these options is to consider an automation solution, such as Power Automate or Zapier. Through these solutions, DocJuris enables integration into contract lifecycle management systems. You can view more details in the Overview of Integrations.
