Posting documents | InvestorVision

Product: Intralinks InvestorVision
Applies to: General partners
 

Distribute investor-specific statements, such as tax documents or capitals calls, to investors either using split codes or not using split codes. If you are using split codes, you can either upload one file that contains statements for multiple investors that must be split, or you can upload a ZIP file of documents that have already been split. If you are not using split codes, you can upload a ZIP file that contains all of the documents plus a spreadsheet that maps the documents to the investor and account.

About this task

When using split codes, InvestorVision associates the file to the appropriate investor based on the split code. For this functionality to work, the master, concatenated file must use the account and investor IDs (split codes) as delimiters between individual investor statements. The split code must be located at the top of the first page of each investor’s document and should be the same color as the background of the page so the split code cannot be viewed by the limited partner. In addition, the account and investor IDs must be configured for each investor. For more information, see Managing investors in InvestorVsion.  

When uploading files that do not use a split code, you must also upload a spreadsheet that contains the name of each file and the investor ID and account ID to which this file is associated. You can download a ZIP file that contains a template that you can complete. You will upload that ZIP file that contains the Excel file and all of the documents. Note the following:

  • Do not rename the xlsx template file that is located in the downloaded zip file. It must be uploaded with the same name.
  • In the PRE_SPLIT_SPREADSHEET.xlsx file, the FileName column should include the full file name with the file extension and it should match the file that is placed into the folder before you zip it.
  • it is recommended that the ZIP file be no larger than 500MB.
  • All columns in the spreadsheet must be completed.

A record of the upload, called a posting, is created when you add documents using Filesplit. You can view the posting status, and publish and unpublish all documents at the posting level, not at the individual document level.
