You can assign any one user or group these types of contract accessed by simply adding them as a collaborator.
Contract access are applied to Tags
For a certain tag applied to a contract, contracts access rights will be summarize on your dashboard as follows:
Here, for all contracts tagged as Marketing (Marketing Tag), the Marketing Team group (M) and an additional user is given access as a collaborator.
Note: You can assign as many groups and users you want to a tag.
Adding a Contract Access Right:
Contract Access rules are defined through your company tags. Add one general tag, or several tags grouped together for more refined access rights. Tags can also be used to give users automatic access to contracts categorized with a certain tag.
Important: By default, new users added to your account will not have access to any contract until granted by the administrator.

This second contract access rule example above is created from the “Budget” sub-tag of "1.Finance". This rule gives access to and defines the roles as follows:
- Collaborator: 1 Group (F) that contains 2 users
The third contract access rule above is created from adding both the “Finance” + “2015” tags into one single Access Rule.
