Simplified securities ledgers

We’ve simplified the securities ledgers with a lighter look and cleaner aesthetic. This allows us to display information more intuitively on the page.

Refined drafts page

We’ve also cleaned up the Drafts page with a lighter look that makes it easier to draft securities in bulk.

Account Switcher

The Account Switcher lets you quickly search for the account you’re working on. It also surfaces recently viewed accounts to save time.

Carta Pro tip: Hit “S” on your keyboard to open the Account Switcher.

Revamping Setup Guide

In the new Setup Guide only relevant tasks are highlighted green; all others are grayed out until you’ve reached them in the onboarding flow. This makes it easier to see which tasks need to be completed.

Sorting Account Check errors

Account Check errors used to be sorted by categories (e.g. Company, Documents, Securites, etc.). They are now sorted from highest to lowest priority so you can easily identify the most urgent errors in your cap table.

We’ve also re-written all of the errors to be action-oriented rather than error-oriented (e.g. “Edit liquidation preferences” instead of “Liquidation preferences needed for 2 share classes”).

New Cap Table Importer

The new Cap Table Importer is simpler and places more focus on downloading the onboarding spreadsheet. We removed the ability to customize the onboarding spreadsheet because it was causing confusion.
