You're wanting to send updates to potential investors / external contacts.
The communications hub allows you to easily message investors, employees, and all the stakeholders on your cap table in one place. Your team can send investor updates, track open rates, and redact access - making it easy to keep investors up to date with the latest at your company.
Here is a 10 minute walkthrough of all the functionalities of the Communications Hub and below the video is a step by step text walkthrough.
After selecting the Communications Hub tab on the left navigation bar, select Add New Update to begin a new update.
Start with the "Title" of the page at the very top, this will be the name of the updates and what is sent out to users via email.
By using the "/" command, hit enter to have a blank line and type "/". This will provide a list of formatting functionalities the tool supports, see the list below:

Once your document has been created and finished, at the bottom you have an Attachments section you can select Choose File to provide any documents you wish to be included in this update. All users that can view this update will be able to see and download the provided attachments.
Select Add Recipients at the bottom of the page, you can then select which individuals you wish to invite by selecting the check boxes on the left of the names. You can invite existing stakeholders, send to new stakeholders or send to External contacts who are not on the cap table.
Two toggles are available on this page:
