Smart Q&A forms

The interface for using Smarter Drafter is an intelligent questionnaire that we call a “Smart Q&A form”. It dynamically adapts to your answers and prompts for everything you need to complete your document.

Hover over the Smart Q&A form to discover the features.

Navigation Pane

As you progress through the Smart Q&A form, you will follow one of potentially hundreds of thousands of different paths. The Navigation Pane tracks your progress and enables you to jump backwards and forwards to easily review and edit your answers.

Progress Bar

The Progress Bar shows you approximately how far through the process you are. Because your path will depend upon your future answers, this can only be an estimation, but it gives you a good indication of how far you’ve advanced and how far you still have to go.

Guidance

Extensive guidance is provided to help you understand the legal issues that underpin the questions and the implications of your answers. This enables you to delegate the drafting to junior staff who can punch way above their weight.

Save and Resume

The Save and Resume feature means that you can save your progress if you need to step away from the computer or gain further instructions. Saved forms can be resumed by any members of your team, which enables close collaboration.

Section Headings

Section Headings help to clarify the topics you cover as you move through the Smart Q&A form.

Dynamic Questions

As you answer the questions, you’ll see the guidance and questions dynamically adapt to your answers. There’s also a ton of logic behind the scenes analysing your answers and applying the law so that you’re only asked relevant questions.

Form Navigation

You can navigate forwards and backwards through the Smart Q&A form using the Previous/Next buttons at the bottom, or by using your browser back/forward buttons. You can also jump between sections using the Navigation Pane on the left.
