Videos in Updates

You can now embed videos directly in Updates. We currently support the following video providers: 

We will play the video directly in an Update when viewed on Visible or via a shared link

When delivered via email, we will show a GIF preview if supported by the player as well as a play icon. This will take the recipient directly to the video. 

Updated Metric UX

We gave the metric section a refresh and update. The improvements will make it easier to search, sort, categorize and create new metrics for both investors and companies alike. 


For Investors

Portfolio Company metrics now live in the Metrics tab and are called Portfolio Metrics. They behave exactly the same as they did before but it is not easier to navigate to all metrics, search individual companies, and more!  



For Companies

The major addition for companies is the ability to view all of your metrics in the same tab. 

We also moved the "+New data source" button to the top right of All metrics to be more uniform and consistent with the entire application experience. 

Refreshing integrations if far more obvious now 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! 

Unsubscribe from Updates

Update recipients can now opt out of Updates from specific companies on Visible. (Prior this could happen globally for all companies). 

Now that we have thousands of companies sending updates each month we wanted to make sure investors can still receive Updates from some companies but remove themselves from other companies with two clicks. 

There is now simply a link in the footer: 

We will prompt the recipient to make sure the really want to unsubscribe: 

Companies will be able to see who Unsubscribed from their company Updates in the master activity feed as well as individual contact feed. 


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

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!
