Delete, Leave, or Cancel a Contract

Concord gives you multiple options for deleting, leaving, or adjusting your access to a contract.

How to delete a contract

  1. In your Document Inbox, select the checkboxes next to the documents that you wish to delete.
  2. From the trash dropdown, select Delete.
  3. Or, from the open document, click the File menu at the top and select Move to Trash.

  • Deleting a contract only removes it from your Document Inbox — it does not delete the agreement from other users' inboxes. If you want to remove a user's access to a document, you can unshare the document with them. 
  • You won't see the option to delete a document if it is in the signing or review stage. For steps to delete a document in the sign or review stage, click here


How to cancel a contract

  • On your Document Inbox, highlight the desired contracts.
  • Click File in the top menu, and select Cancel negotiation.


  • Canceling a contract will mark the contract as canceled and eliminate any further changes being made to a document.
  • Once a document is canceled, the action cannot be undone.
  • Best practice is to remove users from the document prior to cancellation.

How to leave a contract

  • In your Document Inbox, click the File menu at the top, and select Leave Contract.
  • Leaving a contract removes you as a shared user from the contract.
  • The Leave Document option will only be available for contracts you have joined as an admin, or which were directly shared with you.

How to access deleted or canceled contracts

  • From your Documents Inbox, select Stages. You can select Canceled or Deleted to view documents.
