Premium Feature

Documents are available as a premium feature. Contact Sales to inquire more about access. If you're an existing customer, reach out to your Account Manager or to [email protected].

In sourcing filings directly from the source, Middesk also provides the ability to download documents related to these filings. Oftentimes, retrieving these documents can supersede the process of reaching out to an individual and requesting upload via a document capture flow.
