Any alerts associated with a contract are entered while creating a new contract, as part of an amendment or a contract renewal. These alerts are sent directly to a user's email with the alert name as the email subject, so there is no need to log in to Unimarket to receive an alert. Alerts allow the user to be reminded of any time-related functions related to a contract. For example, it is easier to negotiate the renewal terms for a contract ahead of time, so an alert can remind you to contact a supplier about a renewal. Another example may be a reminder to confirm payment has been sent, or an alert to review a contract for necessary amendments. Any alerts a user creates will be documented in the Alerts tab and can be viewed before the alert has been issued or after the fact.
Once a user selects 'Add Alert', a window appears prompting the user to choose a name, date and time associated with the alert. Choosing Add More allows the user to add another alert without having to go back to the list of alerts. If more alerts need to be added later, they can also be added by amending the contract. For more information about amendments see Contract Amendments.
