Bulk grant amendments

You can now record grant cancellations and exercises in bulk, using Capdesk’s new import file. The platform assigns a unique ID to each grant, which you can enter on the important file to record bulk grant amendments. The days of manually amending grants within the platform are gone!

Bulletin board - May

  • All stakeholders must now be assigned a ‘stakeholder category’ on Capdesk, such as investor, advisor or employee. This allows for better organisation and filtering within Capdesk and in your cap table reports.

  • When exporting a grant overview, you can now select ‘only active’, which excludes all grants lapsed or not yet issued from the report. This allows you to see only the grants active within the specified time frame.
