DealRoom Platform Help Guides

These help guides go over the DealRoom platform including the requests, documents, groups, and analytics tabs.

Requests Tab

After a request list is imported into DealRoom, quickly fulfill requests by using drag and drop. The platform will automatically organize and store files within the correlating folder in the documents tab. Increase accountability on tasks and projects by assigning clear roles such as assignee, reviewer, and follower. Users with task roles receive a notification when any update has been made to the request. Quickly find your assigned tasks by selecting the "Assigned to me" option.

The groups tab is where admins can set file, requests, and other permissions. Admins can also view the specific members in each group. Users that are not admins only see the members of the groups that they have access to.

When all diligence goes through the platform, teams capture insightful data such as buyer engagement. Teams know exactly which users opened specific files, and can filter analytics by date, status, priority, and more. The audit log tracks any and all activity within the room.
