The Question & Answer (or Q&A for short) allows anyone with access to submit questions and receive answers. This feature enhances communication by providing context-specific discussions and improves overall workflow efficiency.

To ask a general question that is not specific to a particular file, click on the Q&A drawer tab in the data room interface. This will open a dialog box where you can ask your question.

If you have a question related to a specific file, click on the icon beside the file name in the data room instead.

Alternatively, while viewing a file, you can click on the Q&A icon within the file viewer to ask a question directly related to that particular file.

  • Owners & co-owners only;

  • Owner, co-owners and other guests in the same Group as them; or

  • Everyone
