Contracts can have different statuses, and this is where you manage these.
The benefit of having multiple statuses for contracts is that you can tailor them to your needs. A contract will have at least two statuses by default, 'Active' and 'Inactive'.
You need at least one active and one inactive status in use.
You can add a new status by clicking "Add new status".
Set the name and description in the dialogue and then set the rest of the information in the table. Press "X" to delete a status.
A product status have these fields:
- Name - The status name.
- Description - What the status is about
- In use - If this is checked, the status is currently used for contract.
- Inactive status - If this is checked, this is an inactive status. Contracts with this status set are inactivated.
- Order - Determines the order the statuses in the dropdown list for contract status. Lowest numbers come before higher ones. Statuses with same numbers are ordered alphabetically.
