Question: Please show conditions on a Contract Workspace Template before you conclude today.

Answer:   To apply conditions to the entire template, simply edit the properties on the overview tab and click "none" next to 'conditions' and select your condition that dictates the visibility of the template.



Question: Can you create conditions that would populate the team tab with different predefined groups based on answers to questions?

Answer: Yes, you can apply conditions to individual project groups on the team tab dictating visibility of those project groups, however, if you need rules to define the members in your project groups, you should use the team member rules file.



Question: If you have time to work on a condition, here is one that has me stumped:  A group on the team tab and a notification task need to display in a workspace IF The commodity is “X” OR “Y” AND the amount is >=5000.00.  (in other words, don’t display if “x” or “y” commodity is chosen and the amount is <5000.)   I also need to  make it display for all other commodities regardless of the amount.

Answer: In this case I would build these as 2 separate conditions so you can apply them with flexibility.  Build your first condition for x OR y commodity as a field match and insert a subcondition after the first "All is true", then make the new subcondition "Any are true" for the "OR".  Next build another field match condition choosing the field contract amount with the greater than or equal to operand and apply these as needed.
