  • Be aware of updates: If your product needs updated content from the Admin Environment, you’ll see yellow icons in the Working Environment. These are your friendly reminders to review and refresh.
  • Stay organized: Share your products with ease! Use Shared Folders to group related products and keep things tidy.
  • Track your history: Curious about changes? Clicking on a product shows its entire Filling and Version history. Compare different versions, and even revert to a previous one if needed. Just remember, deleting the latest version is permanent!

Update indications for implemented Forms

Have you recently added or deleted form fields in the Admin Environment? If so, keep an eye out for a yellow square icon with three lines inside in the Working Environment. This little helper, known as the “Update Forms” icon, means there’s new information available that needs to be incorporated into your existing product.

Simply click on the icon, and it will guide you through updating your product with the latest field changes. This ensures your product accurately reflects all the available information, keeping everything up-to-date and streamlined.

How to update the Forms that are included in existing Products?

Navigate to the Prospect module within your Working Environment. From the Working menu, select the Products submenu.

  1. Click on the ‘Update Forms’ icon.
  2. Confirm the update by clicking on the ‘Update’ button.

Blueprints version updates

Did you know that updates made to Blueprints in the Admin Environment can affect existing products? When a content administrator changes, moves, or simply updates the forms within a Blueprint, an alert pops up in the Working Environment. Look for a yellow icon resembling a rolled-up sheet of paper with three lines inside – that’s the update Blueprints icon!

Clicking on this icon lets you easily update your product with the latest Blueprint information. This ensures everything stays consistent and reflects the most recent changes. Plus, by updating your product, you’ll automatically create a new version, keeping track of progress and changes made.

  1. Click on the ‘Update Blueprint Version’ icon.
  2. Confirm the update by clicking on the ‘Update’ button.

Additional information:
Want even more flexibility? You can also update pre-built products using XML directly within the Working Environment. This can be handy for advanced users who prefer a code-based approach. Just import your configuration inside the Admin Environment in the submenu ‘Import Configuration’ and fill it out inside the Working Environment inside the submenu ‘Import Products’.

Congratulations! You’ve mastered the art of building compliant financial instruments with contractuo!
