Hi @AnatoliyDzyuba 

I don’t believe you can change the contract once it’s signed - That would kinda of defeat the purpose of having a signed contract. You can cancel the current contract and send them a new contract with an updated date/time. 

I use the LawTog contract templates, and there is verbiage in those templates that keep the contract in-tact but allow myself and the client to change the date, which could be done via email.

Hope that helps.


Thanks,

Yep, I know I can't edit the original contract. I will have to cancel it and go that route. Just want to hear what others are doing. Thanks for the info.

You should DEFINITELY not “cancel” the original contract! That leaves you liable to them not agreeing to the terms of the new one.   You would make an addendum contract referencing the already agreed upon contract and stating that all terms not mentioned in the addendum remain.  Then you would make a list of the changes, eg. Event Date is moved from 4/12/2020 to 10/05/2020, etc.

@JesseStarr Thanks for the info. I guess I should have clarified the order. You should create a new contract (new date), and once approved by the client/photographer, then cancel the previous contract. That would be the simplest way to handle the issue using ShootProof tools. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to create an addendum unless you are versed in contract verbiage.

Hi @AnatoliyDzyuba,

I just wanted to give you an update. @Karen has added an addendum for date changes that you can use with your existing contracts. Check our her link here:

What do I do if my client wants to change the event date on a signed contract?

Hope this helps ease your rescheduling issues! Have a great weekend!

Thanks,
