New Feature: Project Inbox

By Stephan Millard, Product Marketing

Its 11:30 PM at night.  Your day is done and you're ready to get to bed … you think … then your iPhone pops up an alert.  Two critical files showed up for your biggest project.  Ugh.  Do you go back to your desk, turn on the laptop, connect to VPN, open the VDR and load the files?  Do you wait until tomorrow and wake up 30 minutes early so the files are in the VDR before the MD signs in?  Another night with too little sleep.  No good choices! 

Now you have a better option – one that lets you load the critical files into the VDR and won't take 30 minutes or more out of your sleep.  Use the NEW Project Inbox feature in Datasite Prepare or Diligence.  How?  Open the email on your phone, forward it to the secure project email address and you're done.  All told that took less than 60 seconds! 

Improve Quality of Life

Project Inbox is unique to and only available from Datasite.  And, most importantly to you, it's going to improve the lives of everyone on the deal team.  MDs, VPs and others on a deal team can now email any files they need loaded directly into the project.  So can clients!  And no need to worry about security – only people you designate (long live sophisticated permissions) can email the project and every file is run through full document processing to ensure no viruses come along for the ride.

Now, as the project administrator, you don’t have to look at an avalanche of emails with files you need to load.  No more spending hours trying to file hundreds of emails from different projects into folders.  Just provide everyone on the team the project email address and they send all those files directly into the project.  Then you login to the project, click on the Inbox link in the Favorites and you see all the files in one easy to use screen.  Now just put them where you want them to go and you’re done.  It’s that easy!

NEW Feature: Redaction AI

Redaction AI for Datasite Diligence enables dealmakers to speed up redaction using Artificial Intelligence. Redaction AI utilizes pattern recognition to locate occurrences of data types such as names, addresses, postal codes, email addresses, and currency mentions. Redaction AI also takes lists of user-defined terms, phrases and images and marks them for redaction. Redaction AI cuts redaction times by two-thirds vs. manual redaction. And because we enable users to tag each redaction with a reason, you can unredact in seconds by de-selecting by reason. Redaction AI is fast and easy to use.
