Tomorro allows you to manage the entire lifecycle of your contract, including perhaps the most important phase: negotiation.

And to make your life easier, we've developed a system that allows you to track every single change made to the document very easily, thanks to suggestions.

A bit like Word's revision mode, but all directly from your favourite tool, Tomorro 🥳


As soon as you have finished preparing your version of the contract in Tomorro, the negotiation phase can begin.

Once the contract has been sent to the counterparty, any changes made to the body of the text (additions or deletions) by you or your co-contractor will appear as suggestions.

Visually, any additions from counterpart will appear in yellow, and any deletions in yellow and crossed out. Any internal modifications will appear blue.

Suggestions can be found on the right, in the red "Annotations" tab:

Negotiating is all about finding an agreement that meets everyone's expectations.

Every suggestion made on Tomorro by one party can only be accepted or rejected by the other.

🧑‍🏫 Dealing with suggestions

Thus, when you receive a version of the contract with suggestions made by your co-contractor, from the "Review X suggestions" button, you can :

  • Review the suggestions one by one: here you have the choice of accepting or rejecting the suggestion. You will then be on an editable version, to which you can also add your own suggestions.

  • Accept all suggestions: all the changes suggested by the other party will be incorporated into the document. You can always modify the version if you wish to add new suggestions.

When you review the suggestions - whether they are accepted or rejected, a new version is created.

✨ This allows you to have a version history of the document and to be able to see the changes made to any of the versions, throughout the negotiation.

✅ Accept a suggestion

To accept a suggestion made by your counterparty, click on it.

You can accept it by clicking on the green tick.

Once the suggestion has been accepted, it disappears from the "Open" section of the Annotations tab, and the text is inserted into the body of the document. The change is no longer visible.

Accepted suggestions can be found in the 'Resolved' section of the Annotations tab.

❌ Reject a suggestion

To reject a suggestion made by your counterparty, click on it.

You can reject it by clicking on the red cross.

Once the suggestion has been rejected, it disappears from the Open section of the Annotations tab, and the text is not inserted into the body of the document. The suggestion is no longer visible.

🙋🏻‍♀️ Resend a version if not all suggestions are resolved?

You can easily return the document even if not all the suggestions have been revised.

This allows you to revise them later or to continue negotiating, by adding comments to the suggestions for example (see below).

💬 Comment on a suggestion

Need to justify a suggestion made on the document?

Need to ask for details or more information about the reason for a suggestion made by your co-contractor?

You can comment on suggestions, and even mention internal or external participants.

📈 Tracking suggestions

For greater transparency and to facilitate the tracking of suggestions between contract versions, the history of suggestions can be accessed directly from the project.

In the Annotations tab, the "Resolved" section summarises the suggestions that have been processed and the comments that have been archived.

Each party has access to this history of suggestions. In this way, your counterparty will also be able to see whether you have accepted/rejected their suggestions.

💡 It is only possible to launch the signature process on a version once all the suggestions have been dealt with there.

💡 The document cannot be downloaded in .docx format unless all suggestions have been resolved.
