Access Control Using Metadata

Automate access control for contracts using Metadata values


With this integration, you can invite internal teams to specific contracts using questionnaire values.

Collaboration across contracts becomes faster and reduces the number of steps involved.


Check out detailed feature descriptions below:

  1. Give contract access to a team from a template/intake form questionnaire
    1. You can invite a team to collaborate on a contract based on the selection in a template questionnaire on an intake form. The department/team selected will get invited to the contract.

  1. Invite multiple teams to a single contract
    1. You can map multiple teams to a single dropdown value in the questionnaire/intake form.

      For eg., if your finance department comprises an Account and Revenue team, you can just select finance as the dropdown value on the questionnaire or key pointer and both the teams will be invited to collaborate on the contract.
  1. Give required accesses across different contract types
    1. You can define different types of access control levels for different contract types. If NDAs require only viewing rights, whereas MSAs require edit rights as well, this can be easily configured.
