After creating a Job and sending a contract to a contractor, you may need to rescind that contract before the contractor has signed it. Perhaps the contract was sent in error, or it turns out the contractor doesn't have time for the project after all.

In any case, when you revoke a contract, all of its associated Deliverables return to the "assignable" state (so they can be added to new Jobs), and the Job itself is marked inactive (so it won't appear in lists or searches).

(Note that, once the contractor signs the contract, you can no longer revoke the contract, but must cancel the Job instead.)

  1. Go to the Jobs screen and click on the name of the Job whose contract you want to revoke.

  2. Select the "Tools" tab.

  3. Click the "Revoke Contract" button. Because revoking a contract is irreversible, clicking the button brings up a confirmation pop-up window.

  4. If you're sure you want to revoke the contract, click the "Continue" button on on confirmation pop-up window.

Note: Revoking a contract can be a major decision, and may have financial or legal repercussions. For your organization's records, and the records of your contractor, you should make a comment on the Job detailing why the contract was revoked. (While canceled Jobs don't appear on the Jobs page by default, you can find them by including "inactive Jobs" in your search.)
