Data Room Features

Posted by Security Vault

When companies think about a virtual dataroom, they typically think of long-term projects such as M&A or policy audits and fundraising. These projects require real-time collaboration as well as the transfer of confidential documents among different stakeholders, as well as an immediate due diligence process. With this in mind, let’s take a look at some of the most popular data room features:

Q&A modules

During an M&A deal, the parties frequently have questions about certain aspects of the company and its operations. A good Q&A tool allows both parties to a potential deal to inquire and receive answers to those questions in a systematic way, while keeping confidential information private.


Certain data rooms allow users to personalize the platform with dashboard images and backgrounds for login pages, allowing companies to keep their branding intact. This personalization can be an important aspect of creating a an attractive first impression and bringing teams together to the corporate culture.

Drag and drop uploads of files

High-end VDRs will allow you to drag and drop multiple files into the data room at a time, easing the upload process and saving lots of time. Some see here now offer a “scroll through” feature to make it easier for users to move through the document index. Many data rooms also support a wide range of file formats including Microsoft Word. This allows users to work with files within the VDR. Certain data rooms also provide optical character identification, which makes it easier to search for text within PDFs and other images-based files.
