Logging into the OnitX CLM Word Add-In

After installing this Add-In, click the Sign in button to authenticate with your OnitX CLM credentials. Contact your organization's Contract Administrator if you do not have your credentials. You can also reset your password from the Reset link on the Sign in page. 

The Home screen

The Home screen of this Add-In features powerful search capabilities and shortcuts to frequently used functionality. 

Records & Searching

For quick searches across OnitX CLM, users can simply type in the name of an existing record on the Home screen and immediately jump into Contracts or Templates from the retrieved search results. It is possible to filter on just Contracts or Templates by clicking the applicable bubble or search through the entire system. 

The Records shortcut tile is a quick way to filter and search through your Contract portfolio or Template Library. Clicking this tile gives users the ability to conduct searches by Contract Name or CLM Case Number when known. If searching through the Template Library, only template names are currently searchable.

Search Breadcrumbs

When searching records in your Contract portfolio and Template Library, users will traverse Records, Documents and Document Versions to get to the document file to edit and update. Users can navigate through breadcrumbs at the top of the Search results screen at any time to go between documents and versions attached to the CLM contract or template. Selecting a document version or a contract or template will launch the document in a new instance of Microsoft Word.

Onit has made it easy to identify active template documents by visibly denoting the Active Version in the search results. 

Additional Home screen actions
