Functions Table

The Functions table provides an easy way to turn off features that your organization does not want to use. The visibility of specific fields and conditions for specific rules are tied to this table. If done correctly, turning off a Function can help you optimize your record forms by removing unneeded features. For example, Turning off Payments and Contract Budgeting will hide the entire 'Finance' tab in Contracts.

Each Function contains a brief description of what it controls, a list of the important tables it impacts, and notes for activating and deactivating. Some updates will need to be made manually such as turning off a Function that does not hide associated tables.

The functions that have been predefined include the following:

Function NameDescriptionFunction Turned On?
Obligation ManagementThis controls the visibility of the Obligation section within the Contract, which is a place where all Tasks of Type 'Obligation' are displayed, along with options to create ad hoc Obligations and generate default ones.Yes
