Validations: Due Diligence Form, Setup and Smart Rules

Modified on Wed, 01 Jun 2022 at 08:11 AM

Feature Overview: Due Diligence

Multiple 'validation' forms can be created by Super Administrator, each of these form can have multiple rules which affect how end users interact with your governance, due diligence, compliance or report process. 

You might need a document from a new partner to be loaded and approved in a central place, or you might need a complex work flow which supports a mixture of Sensitive forms (which cannot b seen by the end user), you might need certain forms for certain type of partners, and then you might need some of the submissions to expire (and be renewed), with alerts for when certain types of activities are added on our system/portal.

Add that together and you can build an innovative and seamless Due Diligence process on your system. If that feels too complex for your CEO to approve --simply use the Pack feature to group selected forms and have an automated email with a directly link go to your CEO, once all the required forms have been submitted and approved. 


Setting up your 'Validation' Forms with Restrictions to create a seamless Due Diligence Process


There are three kinds of rules/restrictions you can set when creating validation/due diligence forms for your organisations: 

  • Access Restriction: Only Super Administrators will be able to access these types of forms and they will not be visible to other users.
  • Type of Organisation: Validations can be limited to a specific type of organisation 
  • Type of Activity: Validations might be limited to events linked to a specific type of activity

Learn how to set each of the restrictions below and the impact it will have on your users.

Validation/due diligence forms can be custom named to suit your specific organisation compliance documentation. You can change the name from the settings panel under the appearance tab. click here to learn how you can rename your forms.
