We understand that you may have several additional questions about Carta; set out below is some additional information that we trust will help address these:

How does the template upload process work?

Our team will provide a key to submitting templates for upload on Carta - this will include specifications for the manner in which you can indicate questions for the questionnaire, and how the clauses and variables in a template would be affected by user responses.

Depending upon the complexity of the template at hand, your templates are ready for use on Carta between five working days (NDAs, Employment Agreements, etc.) and 15-20 working days (SPAs, SSAs, SHAs, etc.)

Can Carta handle complex documents as well?

Carta provides a large range of options, and can handle fairly complex requirements, ranging from filling in information such as party names at all appropriate places in a document, to inserting and substituting clauses based on user choices. It can also handle a large number of MS Word formatting requirements that cover most day-to-day use-cases.

Can we get an on-site installation of Carta?

Carta is only available as a cloud-based tool, and we do not provide on-site installations. This ensures you always have the latest version of Carta, and that our support team can make any fixes or changes you need, speedily.
