Contract Lines Details - Events

When a contract line is added to a contract, or double clicking on the line number of an existing contract line, the Contract Lines Details window is brought up. This window contains the following information.

Total Qty

This field will show the quantity of Items for the contract and is dictated by what has been entered in the Item set up. If the company has purchased more than one of these items, the total quantity number can be changed and the total value will be calculated automatically.

Invoiceable Qty

This value of this field is reflected by the status of the contract. If the status of the contract is not to be invoiced this value will automatically be 0, if the contract has been set up with an invoiceable status this value will correspond to the total quantity and if the contract is subsequently changed from not to be invoiced to that of an invoiceable status, this quantity will change to the total quantity value. The quantity can be changed manually, all or some of the total quantity can be invoiced regardless of the status by entering a number in this field, the manually invoiceable qty check box to the right of field automatically becomes ticked if a number is entered here.

Tracks

Tracks can be used to group stands of a particular product area together for example to make a route for people who are visiting and are interested in a particular product. Tracks can only be added if they have been entered in the Exhibition set up, for information on adding Tracks, see the Tracks section of the Setting Up a New Exhibition help pages.

To Add a Track

  • Click on the Tracks button, the name of the Tracks entered will be listed in a grid.
  • Click on the Use checkbox of the Track you would like to assign the stand item to. If there is only one total quantity of the item, it can only be assigned to one Track.
  • On the right hand side of the grid there are filters for displaying only Tracks that have been used, tracks that are active or all tracks.
  • When the Track has been entered, click on the Done Button button to take you back to the contract line window.

Manual Line

Clicking on the manual line tick box means that the contract line no longer follows the status of the main contract. For example, if the main status of the contract is changed from uninvoiceable to invoice, the invoiceable quantity on this contract line will not change. You can use the manual line tick box to change details about a specific contract line.

Auto Line

The Auto line tick box is ticked by default. This means that the contract line follows the main status of the contract, for example if the contract status is changed from an uninvoiceable status to that of an invoiceable one, the invoiceable quantity will change to reflect this. This tick box cannot be unticked, changing the contract line to manual will automatically untick this box.

Active Line

This tick box is used to set the contract line as active and allows it to be included in any invoicing and transactions. By default this box is ticked. Removing the tick will mean that the item will not be included in any further processing of this contract. Unticking this box will automatically untick the auto line box and tick the manual line box as this means that you are manually deciding how the contract line is to be processed.

Cancelled Line

The Cancelled Lines tick box is tells the system to treat this line of the contract as cancelled. With the Active Line box ticked, you will be able to produce a credit note against this line if appropriate. If there is no tick in the Active Line box, then the system will disregard this line of the contract and no transactions will be allowed to be produced. If the Auto line is ticked, the contract line will follow the main status of the order, if this status is set to cancelled, the contract line will be cancelled. If the manual button is ticked, the cancelled line tick box allows the contract line to be ticked without the whole contract being cancelled.

Cancellation Terms Apply
