If you want to send several different contracts by email, type the word multiple at the beginning of the email message. Zefort will create a separate contract for each attachment file.

After adding the contract

Once you have added the contract, whether by email, uploading or dragging & dropping, the contract will appear in your inbox. When the AI scanning is complete, you can check and edit the metadata suggested by the AI. Read more about reviewing contracts here.

Please note that the processing will take some time. If needed, you can edit the document already before AI has processed the document.

Duplicate contracts

When you upload a new contract and exactly the same file already exists as the main document in another contract, you will get a notification.

You have three options — either keep this new contract (so you’ll have two copies in Zefort), delete the contract you just uploaded or merge it with the other contract.
