Creating a "proposed change" is a prerequisite to creating a change order. Please see proposed changes.
How do we make a change order?
When a proposed change is ready to be approved, it can be converted to a change order with minimal effort. In fact, to save time, multiple proposed changes can be approved as a single change order! On the "Change Orders" tab, simply check off the proposed changes you would like to include, then click "Create Change Order".
At this stage, you will be asked to select which users will sign the change order. Don't worry, you can change this later. You will also later be given the opportunity to add signers who are not ContractComplete users.
Now that you've created a change order, you can add any customizations required before sending it out for signing. The Document Organizer allows you to add PDF documents to the main change order PDF. These can include drawings or any other relevant documents. You also have the opportunity to add additional signers at this stage. After the change order is created, a stakeholder will need to approve the change order before it is sent out for signing.
E-sign Live is our 3rd party signing partner which facilitates this process. After all parties have signed, the change order will be automatically added to the contract.
In some cases, you may need to bypass the signing process. This can be done on the change order tab using the arrow button near the required change order.
