Using filters & quick view

In addition to Search, Firmex offers two ways of quickly finding the information you are looking for:

Quick View

A Quick View is a listing of documents and folders in the data room. Quick Views may be sorted and filtered, giving you quick access to the information you want to see. Project Managers and Administrators may create their own Custom Quick Views.

How Quick View Filters Work

From the Documents tab, under the Document Sharing or Due Diligence heading, click Quick View. There are three Quick View filters available to every user:

  • All
    Lists all documents in the directory.
  • New
    Lists newly uploaded documents since the user’s last login.
  • Unread Documents
    Lists documents the user has not yet read.
  • New Since
    Lists all documents added to the project within a date range. 



Why would I use this?

If bulk download is enabled in your project, you may select all the files in Quick View > All, click the Manage Documents button, and then select Download to bulk download all of the documents in the project.


Filtering for folders and documents is a fast way of finding the information you want, while staying in the Documents tab.

To filter for an item, start typing in the Filter Folder or Filter Document area. Your results will begin to display as you type. Click a result to jump to the document or folder.
