Introducing Bulk Upload Questions: The Easy Way to Ask

Due Diligence Q&A is an intense process, but a new bulk upload questions feature from Ansarada can save much of the stress & time of your due diligence Q&A.

From conversations with our customers, as well as the all data we analysed from the 10,000+ deals we’ve completed, we have learnt just how intense the Q&A process in due diligence can be.
Based on feedback from dealmakers, we put our entire Q&A processes under the microscope to find the best way to save ansarada virtual data room users time and stress during deals.
And that’s why we are proud to introduce our latest feature Bulk Upload Questions which simplifies how bidders will be able to ask all their questions during due diligence M&A.

 Save time on manual entry

Many bidders collate their questions in an Excel sheet before creating questions one-by-one in their respective data room. Not only is this very time-consuming and tedious but it can also lead to the kinds of errors that completely derail your Q&A.
Bulk Upload Questions removes the risk of error, and you no longer have to worry about that lost time. Instead, you simply upload your Excel sheet with the questions inside and we take care of the rest.

Supports any Excel template you use

When you upload your Excel sheet, we run through all the question columns to try and match them to the right question fields (Question, Priority, Subject, Subject Text).
ansarada virtual data rooms are adaptable, so if you name your question columns differently, we just use a simple form where you can select the right columns to match to the question fields. This works even when your questions or Excel columns are in a different language.

 Make quick edits before submitting your questions

We know how important it is for bidders to double-check questions before submitting them.
To make that as easy as possible, we have added a preview screen where bidders can go through all the questions they upload, before sending them to the sell-side. On this page, bidders can de-select questions they find irrelevant and even make quick edits to the priority or questions themselves.
Once confident, bidders can click on “Create” and all selected questions will be created.
