By storing your company’s documents in Concord’s centralized database, your team can securely access the documents they need to get their job done efficiently.


1 – File your Documents in Folders:

Folders are used to permit user access to specific documents within Concord. An effective Folder structure will help keep documents organized and ensure correct document access and permissions. This helps maintain compliance across your organization and increases productivity and efficiency. For example, organize our Folders by department, team, or document type.

2 – Automate your filing process with Templates:

Any fully Signed agreement that is started from a Template stored in a shared folder becomes instantly accessible to all assigned users and teams. Additionally, you can share templates directly with users and teams who are not shared to folders to minimize access to fully executed agreements as needed.

Concord’s ‘Teams’ feature allows you to group like-type users for ease of sharing folders or individual Signed documents.

4 – Turn on ‘Administrator Access’

Activating the Administrator Access feature is a great way to ensure key team members never lose visibility into your documents. Once Administrator Access is activated in your Company’s Preferences Settings page, users with ‘Administrator Access’ activated in their user role can view AND join all non-draft documents in the company account, regardless of the folder the document is filed in.
