- Project Type
- CRE - Investments directly into a particular property
- Fund - Investments into a fund that will then invest in multiple projects.
The differences in functionality between the two options are around fund-specific investor dashboard display options for fund projects, including the ability to display “Fund Details” that show investors information on each of the fund’s investments.
- Project Stage - to see what metrics are associated to which status, check out the Dashboard Preferences page here.
- Investing- should be used for CRE projects that are still raising capital and fund projects where you do not wish to automatically allow oversubscription
- Invested- should be used when your capital raise is complete but the project is still active
- Liquidated- should be used when a project has been exited and is no longer distributing
- Syndicating- this status automatically allows oversubscription beyond your target amount and is designed for fund projects
- Close/Exit Dates if applicable
- Publish Settings
- This is one of several places that you can publish/unpublish your project.
- This drives whether the project and all associated information (sales offering, distributions, documents, etc.) appear in the investor portal under the dashboard and offering pages.
- An unpublished project will not populate on an investor statement
- Show Classes
- Having classes visible makes it easier to build out your project and makes it a bit more intuitive from the Org Chart view of the project
- Many clients opt to turn these off after they've built the project for a 'cleaner' look.
