FastDraft How-To: Answer questions through the draft page
A help and information note detailing how to answer FastDraft questions from the draft document page.
Answering questions through the draft page
PLC FastDraft enables you to revise and edit your questions from the draft document. Any changes that you make during this process are automatically saved to the document, project summary and contacts list. Making changes in this way provides you with the opportunity to see how answering a specific question will affect the draft document.
The most common method of answering questions through the draft page is by clicking on blue text. Any blue text (e.g. a name or address) will open up a screen showing further details relating to that item.
You are able to amend these from this screen, then click Save. Once it has saved, you will be directed back to the same place in the draft document.
Clicking on blue text which is part of a clause title will open a screen which will have a set of questions relating to the whole clause.
As well as being able to alter specific items through the blue text links, you are also able to add or remove whole chunks of text, clauses or sub-clauses. This is done by clicking on the square brackets around any eligible text. This opens a new screen which will have questions which are relevant to that text, which you can amend. By clicking Save, these changes will be incorporated.
Text or clauses which are optional text, but not yet included in the document are in grey text.
When you click on a bracket around this text, it will lead to a question which will add the text to the draft: once the question is answered, the grey text will turn into black and blue text. This can be removed by clicking again on the blue square bracket.
To see a copy of the document without the grey optional text, in the Actions pane, click Hide options. To display them again, click Show options.
