Viewing the Purchase Contract Archive

Every time the status of a purchase contract changes, the change is logged in the purchase contract archive. For example, a new log entry is created automatically whenever a contract is sent for review, when a review is submitted, canceled, or finalized, or when the yearly amount of a contract changes.

You can easily access the archive whenever you want if you need it for statistical or other purposes. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Choose the Search icon, enter Purchase Contracts, and then choose the related link to open the Purchase Contracts page.
  2. In the list of contracts, select the one whose history you want to view.
  3. In the action bar, select Contract > Archive History.

This will open the Archived Purchase Contracts page, which provides you with a complete overview of the history of the selected contract. Each change in the status of the contract is represented by a version line in the overview table, and each of these lines is provided with a version number. If you want to view more details for a specific version of the contract, select that version's line in the table, and then select the number in the No. column to open a new page with all the details of the selected version.
