Data Room Due Diligence – Organizing Files

The right folder structure will allow you to conduct diligence in a data room. There are a variety of methods for organizing files according to specific criteria such as project stage department, or level of confidentiality. The most widely used method is to organize files into main folders that correspond to specific types of data and then create subfolders that enhance the accessibility of the system for users.

It is recommended to select a provider who has a feature for indexing files. This feature assigns a unique identifier for each document, and renumbers it automatically if the structure of the folder changes. This will help save time and effort for you, particularly when there are multiple people reviewing the same documents.

Certain VDR providers have the capability to add watermarks to documents to deter users from copying sensitive documents. This protects intellectual property and assist with due diligence. Typically, these VDRs also include functionality that allows users the ability to present conditions of agreement to the recipients to accept prior to viewing sensitive content. This makes it easier for participants to meet regulatory requirements regarding confidential data in certain industries. It is essential to select the right provider who understands the needs of customers and offers features that meet them such as access control, audit trails and granular management of user permissions.
