Soft Commitment Notifications

A quick recap on soft commitments...

Imagine you have an upcoming deal but subscription documents and/or other collateral is not yet ready. You can still showcase your upcoming deal and garner interest through "soft commitments". Simple set your capital raise to the "upcoming" state and you're good to go!Now when investor selects “Reserve Now” in the deal room they are taken to a special soft commitment page. You can also set the minimum and maximum soft commitment amount.

So what's new?!

With this update, you now have the option to notify investors who have previously made a soft commitment that they can log back into the investor portal and complete the commitment process. When you're ready, simply set the capital raise to “Active” and look for the notification checkbox.
