Adding buyer and seller groups to a deal | DealCentre

  • Updated

Applies to: Advisors and sellers
 

Sellers are key stakeholders who are responsible for uploading and organizing documentation. They can upload documents to the preparation are and add and manage folders and documents in preparation. They cannot push documents to diligence or add or manager users. The seller group must be added before adding buyer groups.

Buyers are users that are granted access to the diligence area. They cannot upload or manage documents or add or manager users.

Seller and buyer groups are added on the People tab for the deal. All users must be added to a group. Users cannot belong to more than one buyer group or subgroup.

The first time that you click the People tab, you will be asked to add a seller. After the seller group has been added, you can add people (users) to the seller group, add buyer groups and subgroups, and add users to the groups. 

Note: If you are not ready to add buyers, you can create an empty buyer group. Creating an empty buyer group will allow you to set permissions for the group in advance.

The seller group cannot be deleted. You can only remove people from it and rename it.
