With December almost over, we’ve got yet another set of improvements in OfficeR&D.

With this release, we’re introducing the lifecycle of a contract. The lifecycle starts with the contract creation – if you’d like to have a team of approvers for every created contract, make sure to trigger the Approval Process from Settings/Contracts. This way every created contract will remain in a Draft state until an approver reviews it. The other new stages of the contracts include Notice Served, Renewal Due, Renewal Overdue and Expired.


This release also includes a better accountability of refunds. In the rare cases when you need to refund an invoice, you will be able to issue a Credit Note for a paid invoice right from the paid invoice. In the Credit Note, you’ll find a Refunds section where you can record the refunded payment. This way the system will account for the return of services and any refunded amounts.
