Role Permissions are usage-based permissions that data room owners and co-owners can assign to data room recipients.

  • Owner: The user who created the data room; can manage and delete the data room. Note that data room ownership is currently not transferable. There can only be one owner for a specific data room. 
  • Co-Owners (Team and Enterprise only): Can manage the data room. The co-owner must be a member of the same team or enterprise.
  • Contributors (Team and Enterprise only): Can add, reorder, download or delete files within accessible folders.
  • Download: This recipient can view, print and download files within the accessible folders.
  • View + Print: This recipient can view and print but won’t be able to download the files within the accessible folders.
  • View: This recipient can view but won’t be able to print or download the files within the accessible folders.


Note: For data rooms created before August 20, 2018, the role permissions will still follow the previous Co-Owner, Contributor and Viewer options; and the print and download permissions can be managed by under the Change Data Room Settings.

Everyone who has been invited or has joined the data room will be listed under the Who Has Access section of the specific data room (under the Invite People to Data Room option). Owners/co-owners can edit the role permissions per recipient or revoke access anytime.
