Thank you to those of you who attended this Webinar.  Below are a few of the questions from the sessions with their corresponding answers.  The full list of questions and answers from the session is attached to this post.  Please feel free to use Ariba Exchange to respond to this post and interact with your peers.  We look forward to speaking with you again in a future session!

 

Question: Can you edit the fields and template question responses after the project is created?  Will conditions be re-applied to docs, tasks, etc if the header information is updated or changed after the project is created?

Answer: Yes, you can edit the fields in the sections on the Overview tab.  When Editing the Overview section there will be a Template Questions tab where you can update the response to conditional questions.  This will update any applicable data, however if the update is to remove something such as a document or task and the document has been edited or the task begun it will not be removed.

 

Question: Can conditions be used to define which template is used?

Answer: Yes, conditions added on the Overview determine when this template will be an available choice on the create screen.

 

Question: You have more header fields displaying than we normally see when a Contract Workspace is created. Can this header page be customized to add more fields/attributes?

Answer: Yes, we have added custom fields on this demo site and customers can also request changes.  Depending on your agreement, a certain number of custom fields may be included.  Configuration changes for On Demand customers must be made through Connect and requested by a DSC.  For On Premise customers please reach out to your relationship manager.

 

Question: Does the commodity have to be UNSPSC, or can you use ACT or Custom commodities for conditions?

Answer: The commodity options when creating a condition on the commodity field will use the commodity codes loaded in your site.  By default all sites use UNSPSC, but customers have the option of using a custom commodity list as well.
