Contracts List – Layout and Navigation



The Contracts List is accessed by clicking Contracts from the Project navigation menu. 

Each time the Contracts List is displayed, user defined settings can be applied to show what information displays.

These are temporary change only and won’t be saved for the next time the form is opened.
