🚀 Introduction

Enhance your contract management experience with SpotDraft's integration with OneDrive. This strategic collaboration brings together the precision of SpotDraft's contract execution with the reliability of OneDrive's storage solutions, simplifying your contract handling process. The integration is designed to provide an automated, efficient system for the management and accessibility of your contract documents.

Once a contract is executed within SpotDraft, the integration efficiently generates a PDF version and synchronizes it to a designated folder in OneDrive. This streamlined process is focused on ease of use and efficient management.

Key Features of the Integration:

  • Centralized Contract Repository: OneDrive acts as a secure and accessible location for all your contracts, ensuring easy management of your contract portfolio.
  • Automated File Organization: Upon execution, SpotDraft automatically places all contract PDFs in the OneDrive folder specified, ensuring that contracts are stored in their designated location. The filenames are automatically set in a clear and identifiable format: 'Contract Type - Counterparty Name - Unique ID'. This logical naming convention makes finding and organizing contracts straightforward and efficient.
  • Streamlined Sharing and Collaboration: Utilize OneDrive’s advanced sharing and collaboration tools to facilitate teamwork and communication, while maintaining comprehensive control over contract access.
  • Robust Security and Automated Backups: In addition to OneDrive’s security protocols, the integration incorporates SpotDraft’s automated backup system, guaranteeing that your contracts are stored securely and backed up consistently for extra protection.
