4. Edits & Cancellations

4a. Cancellations via Dynamic View

Revisions and Cancellations

There are 5 ways to edit a submitted contract:

1. Earnings Type Adjustment 

Earnings Type Adjustment can be used If a contract was submitted with an amount that was less than it should have been - in other words, if the employee needs to be paid more, then a new contract may be submitted using Earnings Type of Adjustment.  Adjustments are only to be used for an increase in payment and will not apply credit hours or service credits for PATFA unit members. The new contract will follow the same approval workflow as other contracts.

2. Dynamic View - Update Details

If you notice a mistake after submitting, you may edit the form using Dynamic View - Update Details.  

  1. Click on a row to open Details panel
  2. Update contract details as necessary
  3. Click Save
    1. If Save button is not available (grayed out), make sure all required fields have entries and/or try clicking the tab button on your keyboard.
  4. Use Dynamic View - Manage Approvals to resend contract to approver if necessary.
  5. Dynamic View Update Details

3. Declined by Approver

If you notice a mistake after submitting, you may have the 1st Approver decline the contract.  The decline workflow will notify the submitter and allow submitter to make edits and resubmit.

  1. If you receive a request to update and you revise the information and want to re-trigger the workflow, you must use Dynamic View - Manage Approvals to resend approval request(s)

4. Cancellation Form:

  • Use the Cancellation Form to cancel a Smartsheet contract with or without a cancellation fee.
  • All contracts that should not be paid or are no longer valid must be cancelled.
  • An original contract must be created before it can be cancelled. 
  • The original contract does not need to be approved before it can be cancelled.
