Defining Valid Time Frames on Contract Lines

Contract lines can now have time frames different than the parent Contract. This is to accommodate seasonal products or products with a shorter shelf-life. Each Contract Line can have its own Start and End Date, which may be different from the Contract Start and End Dates, however Contract Line Start and End dates should still fall within the Contract Start and End Date time frame .

To enable, add both the Start_Date_vod and End_Date_vod fields to the page layout. Grant FLS READ/WRITE permission to both fields.

When entering Contract Line validity time frames, both Start and End Dates should have values. If both dates are blank, the Contract Line inherits the Start and End Dates of the Contract.

When capturing Inventory Monitoring and selecting a Contract, the Contract terms only apply to the products where the Inventory Monitoring Date falls within the Contract Line Start and End Dates.

When Mass Add is enabled, and a Contract is selected, only products with valid Contract Lines can be added to the IM lines. If the IM date is on or before the Contract Line Start Date, and on or before the Contract Line End Date, the IM line is prepopulated.

When capturing Orders and selecting a Contract, the Contract pricing rules only apply to products where the Order date falls within the Contract Line Start and End Dates.
