Collaborate With Ease Collaborate With Ease

Share contracts

Coauthor contracts with other members of your organization or get them reviewed by peers. Track changes made by collaborators with the help of redlining (color-coded text). Set view, comment, fill fields, or write permissions for your collaborators.

Obtain field values

When there are unknown parameters at the time of authoring, the author can leave the contract fields unfilled. The author or collaborators with Fill Fields and Write permissions can fill in the fields later.

Comments section

Add review points as comments and participate in discussions with other collaborators via replies. You can also choose who can view your comment with comment visibility settings.

Seamlessly negotiate online

Secure share

Forget the pain of emailing documents as attachments back and forth. Send contracts for negotiation to counterparty contacts via password-protected links. The counterparty contacts can access the contract without a Zoho account.

Counterparty review

Counterparty contacts can collaborate, suggest edits, and add comments to the contract. In contracts with multiple rounds of negotiations, they can compare the document with the versions in earlier rounds.

Review summary

Get a summary of all the changes and comments made by the counterparty after they complete their review.

Track changes

The changes made by the counterparty contacts will be displayed in the form of redlining, so you can easily see the additions, edits, and removals. Accept or reject the changes with just a click.
