Fully Editable and Restricted ACBR Templates

ACBR members get access to two versions of each form: Fully Editable and Restricted.

Fully Editable: These are fully editable documents that you have complete control over, including all text and formatting. This is the preferred option when you are redrafting clauses and have legal counsel revieiwng the contract that wants to make more signifiacnt changes.

Restricted: Unique to Propdocs, you can think of restricted templates as a hybrid of a Word document and a PDF. ACBR has selected only specific parts/sections of the document that are able to be edited, allowing for a streamlined exprience to 'complete' the document. You're able to 'tab' from field to field. Note that you can enter any amount of text into a restricted area and the document will propogate - you're not limited to the field width like in a PDF.

For both Fully Editable and Restricted versions you can track changes to ensure you don't miss anything that was updated in the document.

Trouble Shooting and Support

Common Issues and Solutions

  • Issue: Cannot edit the template
    Solution: While the templates themselves cannot be edited, you can create documents to begin drafting the agreement.
  • Issue: Document isn't fully editable
    Solution: You likely used a Restricted Templte to create the document. These are simplified contracts that only have specific sections/parts of the document that are editable. When creating a document select a Fully Editable template to have complete control of the document.
