It is possible to Export your specific contract data, linked contract data and contract documents into a Excel file for your usage.
You can Export data for multiple records via the summary screens or Export single record data from within a record. Additionally within a record there is the ability to Export the linked data held within the tabs at the bottom of a record.
The data available for exporting are relevant to the feature you are in at the time, if you are in a summary screen such as Contract Summary, then the data available to Export will be based upon the Contract such as Title, Value, Dates etc. If you are in the Party Summary then all the data will be based upon the Party such as Name, Address, Contact Number etc.
On each summary page on the top right there is a More Action button [...] click and choose the Export option.
