Question: Is the Template Creator a User based license or a Team member license?

Answer:   Team Member License

 

Question: Is Customer Support Admin a formal Ariba group role or a custom group?

Answer: It's only a group Ariba uses to administrate customer sites

 

Question: What is the difference between a flat vs assembled document?

Answer: An assembled document is loaded into Ariba as a "Main Agreement" or "Contract Adendum" which allows you to view the document in outline view (use the clause library, and make some other edits within Ariba in Outline view).  An sessembled document is a Microsoft Word file loaded that particular way (usually book marked and/or style mapped).  A flat file is like an attachment to an email.  It can be many other file types besides a work document (includinig a word document), but is loaded as "upload - document".  This types of documents can only be downloaded or opened from the system.

 

Question: Are there any webinars for contract document template (style-mapped / bookmarked filed) troubleshooting?

Answer: Yes, but they are advanced webinars that are only available to BPC customers.
