New Metric Insights

We launched new insights for any of your metrics in Visible. We now help calculate: 

  • Previous period change (great for finding the change between balances. e.g Cash in Bank paired up with previous period change gives you change in cash)
  • Trailing 3, 4, 6 and 12 periods

These new insights are supported in the formula builder, metric alerts and soon to be in the chart builder as well. 

Request Linking - Lite Plan

Companies who are completing requests from our investor platform can now sign up to use Visible Lite for no cost (there is a paid cost for Lite if you are not connected to an investor). 

The Lite Plan will provide companies with the following features: 

  • View all historical request responses
  • Save progress of existing requests
  • Send investor updates
  • Manage a fundraise through our fundraising pipeline
  • Create metrics and chart them in the update editor
  • Manage all of their stakeholder contacts

Visible Connect

Visible Connect is our curated investor database and now live. Read the full announcement on our blog

An example of some of the queries a founder can perform: 

  • Filter an investors by stage 
  • Check Size Range
  • Geographic focus
  • Industry & Section
  • If the data is verified (submitted by the investors and vetted by Visible) 
  • much more! 

Improved Metric Selector

We recently made an improvement to our chart builder! You can now filter and select metrics by datasource when creating charts. No more scrolling through countless metrics.

Check it out here:

You'll also see the improved metric selector when creating formulas and variance reports.

For Visible for Investor users, this means that you'll be able to pick metrics based on portfolio companies as well!

Greater Chart Legend Control

We just launched two great additions to give you greater control over your chart legends. 

Completely Remove Chart Legend

We recommend using this if you have enough context in the chart title and want to share without a legend. It is also great if you have many metrics on a chart and viewing live in the app or dashboard where you can hover over the data. 

Change Metric Names at the Chart Level

Want to change the name of a specific metric on the chart legend but not change the metric name entirely? You can now change the metric name at the chart level! 

QBO Cash vs Accrual

We now sync your QuickBooks Online data based on your default method in QuickBooks. This means that we now support cash accounting reports! 

Image Hyperlinks and Update Improvements

Images included in Updates can now have a hyperlink attached to them. Just upload and image and select the link icon.

When the image is clicked, the viewer will be taken to the respective URL.

While you have always been able to select an element in an Update and remove hitting backspace, we added an icon to the UI as well to do with your cursor.

Google Shared Drives Now Supported

We just updated to Google's latest Sheets API. Yes, we did so because the current version is being deprecated in April ;) However, that means it comes with some new benefits!

  • Sheets stored in Shared Drives (fka Team Drives...make up your mine Google!) are now supported
  • Sheets that have cells containing Google Finance functions and other scripts are now supported

If you are looking for some help, make sure to check out our Google Sheets 101 Guide.
