Below is an example of a typical deal dashboard from the point of view of a deal room administrator. The deal dashboard displays the navigation bar to the left, with aggregate data represented in the Deal Health and activity displays.

Depending on your team’s permission set, you may see one or multiple tabs – what you see depends on your team’s permission sets.

There are four main tab-types:

  • Checklist – for task management

  • Document – for storage & collaboration

  • Data Room – for team’s due diligence

  • Questions & Answers – a Q&A tracker

Note: Users can also create a personal checklist for their own task management but this remains private to them.

Click on a tab to open.

Admins: for further information on each tab-type, read: When to use a Checklist, Document or Data Room Tab.

To create a new tab, click on the Add New Tab icon and select tab type from the drop-down list.

Note: if you are not a Room Owner, you can only create a personal checklist tab for your own tasks.

Task Management

Checklist tabs enable admins to: group tasks, set due dates, assign responsibility and attach files for teams to collaborate. Task status is collated on the dashboard, as shown above, so teams can see how their tasks are tracking overall.

Document storage & sharing

Document tabs are used for secure storage, sharing and collaboration on files that may not be task-driven or time dependent. Document tabs (and checklist tabs), have file check-out/check-in and full version history.

Data room & Q&A tracker

thedocyard’s data room tab is a fully-featured, highly secure virtual data room. Room Admins set access permissions for teams to undertake due diligence. Questions are copied to the Q&A Tracker, where they can be filtered, assigned and exported as required.
