Entering Contract Clauses
To enter a Contract Clause, follow these steps:
- Choose Contract Setup from the Options menu, then choose Contract Clauses from the submenu.
- Click the New button, or click on an existing item and click the Edit button.
- Enter details about the clause.
Enter the following information for each Contract Clause:
Name-- Type in a brief name for this contract clause. This is the text that will appear in clairvoyant fields.
Comments-- Type in any comments you"d like to make about this item.
Clause Text-- Type in the text of this clause.
Location-- Choose the location where this clause will be placed within the contract.
Goldenseal uses the Location field to determine where in a
contract this clause will appear.
Choose one of the following options:
At Beginning-- Goldenseal will list this clause at the very beginning of a contract.
After Heading-- Goldenseal will list this clause after the Heading text in the Contract record.
After Body-- Goldenseal will list this clause after the Body text in the Contract record.
After Specifications-- Goldenseal will list this clause after contract specifications.
At End-- Goldenseal will list this clause at the very end, after the Footer text in the Contract record.
Type in the text that you'd like to include in contracts. You can
include any words or numbers. You can also include carriage returns
so the text will appear on more than one line.
NOTE-- You can only enter unformatted
text. If you want bold or italic text or different fonts, you'll
need to format in a word processor after
you create a contract.
The Goldenseal project management software includes a few special phrases that you can use
to include company info or project info within a clause. Goldenseal replaces these phrases
with information that it gets from Company Info, a Contract or a Project
- BizAddress-- Goldenseal replaces this with your current company name.
- BizName-- Goldenseal replaces this with your current company address.

Contract Clauses are a "library" of standard clauses that you can include
in a contract or subcontract.
To use clauses, include them in a Contract Package, and then include the package in a Contract.
