What is a Data Room

Last updated February 07, 2019

Virtual Data Rooms are a collection of securely stored files designed to mimic traditional, real-world data rooms via enhanced security, controlled access, restricted sharing, and auditing capabilities. They are commonly used when confidentiality between Workspace users is important. The most popular use cases for data rooms include fundraising, mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring, and joint ventures.

Onehub offers a special Data Room mode, complete with unique features allowing you to create data rooms customized to your particular needs. When Data Room mode is enabled, the following pages/features are disabled:

Disabled Pages/Features

  • Dashboard
  • Activity
  • Tasks
  • Commenting

Special Notes



While data room users will continue to generate activity, they will be unable to see any activity generated by another Workspace user. Only Administrators and Moderators can view the activity of all data room users.


The Messages page remains an optional feature in data rooms. Any message posted to a data room can be viewed by all Workspace users. Only Creators and above can post new messages.
