New Feature: Q&A FAQ's and Improved Watermarking

By Stephan Millard, Product Marketing

We know managing a data room can be mind-numbing work.  Indexing documents, answering questions, updating your client and your boss.  Let Datasite make your world better.  We are continually working to improve Datasite Diligence for you.  In recent blog posts we have discussed some of the enhancements:

Now we have added other new capabilities.  The latest new features, focused on improving Q&A and document watermarking, will help you save time setting up and managing a deal.

Lets take a closer look:

Q&A FAQ’s

Improve the efficiency of managing Q&A while maintaining control of the deal. 

How? 

  • Simply go into Q&A
  • Click on FAQ tab
  • And start a new FAQ.  That’s it!

FAQ’s can really help manage the deal narrative at scale by answering questions many reviewers may have all at one time.  This can happen in an asset sale and is even more likely in a restructuring deal.

We’ve also added some other cool things to Q&A to make your job easier.   You can turn any existing question into an FAQ with a single click.  This is a time saver.  Now you can also export a filtered subset of all questions / answers, which can help your team focus on exactly the questions they need to keep the deal moving forward.

 

Improved Watermarking Capabilities  

This enhancement provides you fine grained control over which project's documents are watermarked and which are not.  In addition, now you have more watermarking options – change the size or opacity of the watermark and choose if you want one watermark or many tiled watermarks on project documents.  These options are easy to set:

  • Go into the Setting tab
  • Select Watermark on the menu
  • Change the watermark setting for the project.  That’s it!

Keep an eye out on the Datasite Blog to read about other new features as they are released! To benefit from these features, contact your Datasite representative.

Trackers for Datasite Diligence and Prepare

Trackers is one of the must-have features of Datasite. It provides a single, central checklist, used by all involved. When one user makes a change, everyone sees it who needs to see it. There’s no more confusion. There’s no more back-and-forth. No more multiple versions of the list, no more emails, no more Excel. And because everything happens on the Datasite platform, there’s no more switching between any other software at all.
