If you’re considering implementing the use of a data space for due diligence, sales processes, or another purpose, it’s important to consider how the tool will be used by the users. The data room’s structure should be easy to navigate and organized so that buyers can easily find the information they require. This will enable you to answer any questions quickly and speed the deal process.

To establish a coherent structure, you should first create folders and subfolders which are named after the contents of each folder. When uploading files it is a good idea to follow consistent formatting and naming standards. Also, make sure to only store relevant documents in each folder. In addition, you should put related documents together in subfolders if possible. This will allow buyers to find the information they’re looking for and ensure that all information relevant to a particular topic can be found in one place.

You may want to require that users sign a nondisclosure agreement prior to granting them access to your data room. This is a common practice when dealing sensitive information. It can reduce the risk of intellectual property theft. Virtual data rooms typically provide stock NDA templates that can be modified to meet your specific needs. You can also define granular permissions to ensure that only certain types of users can have access to specific files. You can easily remove the permissions granted to a user should you decide to change your decision. This is possible even if a user has already downloaded or viewed documents from your data room.
