These are the features that are covered:

Enhancements in ‘Manage Purchase Contracts’ App

With this app, you can now enter data efficiently, without waiting for unneccessary validations and error messages for unfilled fields. Furthermore, you can create contract items faster with the readily available empty rows in the Items facet.

For more information, please see State Messages in SAP Fiori Apps and Default Empty Rows in Object Page Tables.
