22.2.0 - Core System: Contract Insight

  • Dark

Article summary

The Core System provides Contract Insight’s core components and functionality for full lifecycle management of your organization’s contracts and committals.


NEW FEATURE: Legal Hold Admin Management Screen
Reference #: 240412.365.312

Legal Hold has received a new configuration page to allow management of changes that would be allowed to be performed within a record. Now Admin users can navigate to the Legal Hold Configuration Page found in Manage/Setup, and can make changes on what information is allowed to be changed or ran while a record is on legal hold. Administrators can also assign non-admin users the permission to perform legal holds on records. 

Note: Users assigned the permission through security groups and admin license individuals must be updated through the user permissions page and can not be given the permission through the Legal Hold Configuration page

How will this affect users?

More control is available in configuration of what happens when a record is placed under a legal hold, and who can enact a legal hold.

Reference #: 240412.360.131

VISDOM as a Service (AKA VISDOM Services) is a port of the current ML/NLP functionality from individual Contract Insight instances to a central service.  This move allows CobbleStone to maintain a single repository of NLP training data which can be used by Contract Insight and other callers via the services API.  Providing services via a central API minimizes dependency on Contract Insight versions and allow us to implement new functionality at the server level, making it available to all clients at once without the need to update applications.  

In addition to centralizing the repository, the training data has also been improved so that VISDOM can recognize more clauses from specific contracts types.  

VISDOM Services also offers two new concepts -  Virtual Taxonomies and Data Points.   These new features are designed to improve clause recognition and reduce configuration.   

Contract Insight will automatically create and authorize a VISDOM as a Service account for paid Customers and Trials.

More information can be found HERE

How will this affect users?

Users should experience improved performance and accuracy, as well as reduced configuration time when using VISDOM.

NEW FEATURE: Field Masks
Reference #: 240412.1157.2064

We have added the ability to apply a masking format to fields that appear on all Add, Edit, and Display screens. In addition to this we have given users the ability to create field masking formats within the Field Manager.

To create a field mask, find Manage Field Masks in the Field Manager section of the Main Menu

Administrators can enter a name and format for their desired mask. For example, you can create a Phone Number Mask in the ###-###-#### Format

Field Masks can be applied to New or Existing Textbox Fields:

Group Separators are available for Integer, Decimal, and Decimal4 fields. You can choose either no separator or a comma. For example: 1000 or 1,000.

Decimal Separators are available for Decimal and Decimal4 Fields. You can choose either a period or a comma. For example: 3.14 or 3,14

How will this affect users?

Users will have more control over the input display of certain textbox fields and the display of numeric fields.

Reference #: 240412.1092.3976
