Leeway allows you to manage the entire lifecycle of your contract, including perhaps the most important phase: negotiation.
And to make your life easier, we've developed a system that allows you to track every single change made to the document very easily, thanks to suggestions.
A bit like Word's revision mode, but all directly from your favourite tool, Leeway 🥳
As soon as you have finished preparing your contract version in Leeway, the negotiation phase can begin.
Once the negotiation has started, any changes (from the "Edit this version" button) to the document will appear as a “
And every suggestion will be visible to both you and the counterparty at a glance.
Negotiating is about finding an agreement that meets everyone's expectations.
From now on, every suggestion made on Leeway by one party can only be accepted or rejected by the other party.
Dealing with suggestions
Thus, when you receive a version of the contract with suggestions made by your co-contractor, from the "Review X suggestions" button, you can :
Accept all suggestions: all changes suggested by the other party will be incorporated into the document. You can always edit the version, if you want to add new suggestions.
Review each suggestion one by one, if you want to reject some of them. You will then be on an editable version, on which you can also add your own suggestions.
💡 It is possible to start the signing process on a version, only when all suggestions have been processed there.
So, if the option "Ask for a signature" does not appear on the version you want to send for signature, remember to check the suggestions there before.
For transparency purpose and to make it easier to track suggestions between contract versions, the suggestion history is now available on the document 🙌
Here is where you can find the history of all suggestions at any time: open your contract version, click on the "lightning bolt" tab ⚡️ on the left.
Each party has access to this suggestion history. This way, your counterparty will also be able to see whether you have accepted/rejected his own suggestions.
