When a contract is activated or expires, the supplier contact who is linked to the contract no longer receives an automated notification from 4me. Likewise, when the notice date of a contract is approaching, the supplier contact does not receive a notification from 4me anymore.
The reason why the contact person of the supplier organization is no longer informed is that these contacts typically have no access to the 4me account in which the contract is registered. They therefore are not able to open the contract to review it.
The Supplier contact field is still useful, though, as it provides quick access to the contact details of this person.
