Title - Name for the Document - this may be something more generic than the actual Document Title

Attachment - Here you can select the document in three ways:

From this Device

If this is the first time a document is uploaded into the system then use the the Select File [...] option, this will open up a browser window for you to select the document, once saved the document will appear in the Attachment(s) section. 

Alternatively you can drag and drop a file into the field.

From Document Library

If the document has been previously uploaded then you can just find it within the intelligentcontract Library files, use the magnifying glass icon to open up the Library files, here it will display all the documents that have previously been uploaded into your account, you can search and find your document, once selected, press [OK] and the document will appear in the Attachment(s) section.

Virus Scan

We employ "Clam Anit-Virus" software on the servers that deliver the intelligentcontract service. This is a vital service that ensures we do not import and then inadvertently distribute virus software. 

Each time you upload attachments to the intelligentcontract service, the document will be scanned by the anti-virus software and will be rejected if the software detects any virus or malware. 

If you do get this message, it is likely the attachment you are attempting to upload is infected and you should discard the file.

Contract Documents can have their own Alerts, these can be set against millstone dates within your Contract Document record. Please refer to this article for more details.
