Contracts, Proposals, & Documents Orientation

Leap offers the ability to create configurable documents for your company. There are several different document types. Contracts and Proposals are the default document types already defined in Leap. You can also define your own document types (such as Work Orders, Production Documents) in App Settings > Custom Options.

Each of these document types are created and edited in the same way. Additionally, each of these document types can have different sending rules.

For example you may want contracts and proposals written back to the CRM and emailed to the customer. Conversely, you may want work orders written back to the CRM, but not emailed to the customer.

This section outlines the steps for creating and editing all document types.

Default
Most commonly used document in Leap. Use this type of page if your document will require any kind of input from the user including signatures.
PDF
Use this type of page when you want to add an already made PDF document as a template. These pages will not be editable to the user and only added as additional pages to the final document created. This is good for pages such as terms and conditions that do not require any changes from the user.
