Portfolio Metric Formulas

Investors can now create calculations directly in app and across the portfolio with the formula builder. 

This helps reduce the portfolio company reporting burden and will also give you the chance to create deeper insights. 

Metric insights are supported in the formula builder as well. The above example is taking cash burn and applying the 3 month average insight. This helps remove any lumpiness that might exist in month to month cashflow to give a better barometer for months of runway. 

HubSpot Merged Deals

HubSpot updated their app to allow users to merge deals but did not update their API accordingly. We now make sure to de-dupe any deals that are merged in HubSpot to make sure they do not show up twice in Visible. 

Tear Sheets

Investors now have the ability to create Tear Sheets for their portfolio. Think of these as one-pagers that can be fully automated across the portfolio. Great for regular portfolio review meetings as well as LP reporting.

You'll be able to build as many tear sheet templates as you'd like. All pages are exportable to PDF and designed to fit on an A4 page. 

Each template will generate tear sheets for respective portfolio companies and you'll be able to make any specific customizations on a per portfolio company basis. 

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

Metric Alerts

Metrics Alerts were just launched into the investor platform. Metric alerts will allow a user to customize alerts and receive email notifications as portfolio metric data changes. 

You'll be able to set alerts based on three criteria: 

  • Percentage. e.g. a metric changing by a certain % each period
  • Fixed Number. e.g. Runway is less than 4 months or ARR is > $1M 
  • Another metric. e.g. Burn is greater than forecast

We'll batch notifications every 10 minutes as well as let you customize which users should receive the notifications via email. A full log of historical alerts is available in the application as well. 

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! 

Request Previewing

Investors are now able to preview any request. This includes both the link of the request as well as the email that the company will receive. 

This is especially useful if you are customizing KPIs on a per portfolio company basis. 


Audit & Change Log

We now expose an audit log of how data values of metrics change. When you click the change log icon we will expose: 

  • The name of the user who changed the date or if the data came via a request and link directly to the request of the company
  • The previous value
  • The data the value was change as well as time


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! 

Portfolio Company Excel Data Exports

Export portfolio company metrics with the click of a button. From the profile page go to: 

Metrics -> Export Metrics. We'll generate a download link that that is valid for 30 mins. 

Note: Depending on the amount of data it may take a coupe seconds to generate the file. 

Once downloaded, the Excel file will contain one tab per time frequency of metrics assigned to the portfolio company.
