Technical improvements to navigation

The Design Technology team at Carta is updating the top level navigation of our app, to benefit from the latest Ink Design System improvements.

With this architectural change, user experience will be more consistent, future design improvements will be easier, and we will be able to better support our future product roadmap.

There will be minor changes to visuals and interaction. On the visual side, the text is now bolder and more legible. On the interaction side, menu items will now open on click, instead of on hover.

Note: there is no change to menu items or to the way you get to different corners of the app. This update is unrelated to the navigational structure of our site.

For feedback, please reach out to design-technology@carta.com.

Custom messages in Board Consents

We’ve made some improvements to notifications in the Board product. Now, when you publish a consent, you can write a custom message that will be included in the email notification that goes out to your board members.

Design update

We are retiring our ancient “Your session has expired” dialog in favor of a more modern approach, similar to other financial platforms.

Customers will now be taken to the login screen once their session becomes inactive for too long. Logging back in will take customers to the same page they were previously at.

For design feedback, reach out to design@carta.com.

We’ve released a new feature today, which allows board members to approve resolutions right from the iOS app.

Investor Updates

Carta Investor Updates allows you to send communications from the Carta platform to investors, employees, and other stakeholders on the cap-table easily through the Carta platform. We give you the tools you compose a mixed media update and attach all relevant files. Our financials templates are great for companies who are looking for guidance on what is important to investors. Recipients of the update will receive a notification and they will be able to access the update from their Carta portfolio. Companies sending update can also keep track who has viewed updates.

Investor Updates is now available to companies in the Growth and Enterprise plans. You can access more help content for this feature here.

Safer 2FA reset process

We now ask for a photo that you can take with your smartphone in just a few seconds. The new process is following best practices in security and makes the process for 2FA reset much faster and safer for our users.

Updated password creation

We improved the process of setting up the password when account is being created. Carta now instantly shows how strong is the password and gives recommendations on how to improve it.

These improvements should keep your data safer and experience to be a bit more friendly.

Browser support update

Carta no longer supports Internet Explorer 11. We are committed to deliver a great user experience, and we support all modern browsers.

Customers who try to access Carta through Internet Explorer will now be prompted to download Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox.

A Redesigned Portfolio Experience

We’ve heard you!

You are on the go and now we are too. Investors, board members, and employees can now access their holdings data on any device.

For investors, the portfolio company page features a new overview tab. Here you can glean the most important information about your portfolio company. Portfolio Insights customers will also enjoy added granularity to the in-app reporting. We’ve made our popular bulk export feature now available for all metrics.

Another win for all investors is the ability to upload documents to the company page. Keep track of all relevant company materials, such as board decks and legal documents, in one place.

We hope you enjoy the new experience, but we’d love to hear your feedback. Reach out to us at investorservices@carta.com.
