      • add functions to the administration console

        It would be helpful to be able to see at a glance how many users we have (without having to generate a report covering the whole span of the subscription). It would also be helpful to be able to generate (or view) a list of all affiliated users, possibly also to include their individual usage history. This would help with tracking usage and weeding out inactive accounts.

        • Hi, it would be great if you could add the option to NOT show particular sponsors.

          For instance, some sponsor orgs have more administrative obligations than others. It would be great to quickly (without having to export the data and filter in spreadsheet program) see the other opportunities including those within the same sponsor type category.

            • allow us to disseminate calls to a campus wide favorites folder

              As administrators we would like to be able to post the selected calls our community would be interested in seeing to a campus-wide favorites folder. This would allow them to view identified opportunities without having to conduct individual searches.

              We don't want to have to send individual email notificiations, we would prefer to have a place that they can view these pre-selected results.

              • Add more funding opportunties to Grant Forward

                Grant Forward collects and aggregates funding opportunities from various sources on the web, e.g. grants.gov is one source.

                What if Grant Forward is missing some funding opportunities --
                * If you are an Administrator (i.e. have access to the Administration Console), you can submit the missing opportunities via the Console. For more details, see http://feedback.grantforward.com/knowledgebase/articles/123808-how-do-i-submit-a-grant-.
                * Or you can inform Grant Forward about it by pasting the name and URL of the source in the comment below.

                    Hey, Lisa,

                    Thanks for writing us regarding an “add opportunities” link, and the specific opportunities that you included.

                    I went ahead and added the entries from the source you gave us myself. They should appear in our site in a few days.

                    As for a link for public submission: we have a submission function within the Grant Forward administration console (http://admin.grantforward.com), but are still considering how we might make this available for more general use.

                    Thanks for your feedback!

                    Best,

                    The Grant Forward Team

                  • Create a more-flexible results "export" system

                    Grant Forward already allows me to export a single-page of my search results, but it would be useful if this system were more flexible.

                    This might mean: allowing users to export the entire result set, or allowing users to specify specific opportunities via check-boxes. These check-boxes might also allow me to specify opportunities from separate pages (and remember all of the opportunities that I'd checked from previous pages.)

                    • Add more specifics to the Administration Console Usage Report

                      I would like to view a more specific breakdown of the way my researchers are using Grant Forward. This might include the ability to view usage by specific departments, IP-addresses that are associated with my institution, or even specific user accounts.

                      • Curated Dissemination

                        The Administration Console allows administrators to create targeted searches and automatically disseminate opportunities directly to their researchers. However, I would also like the ability to review the results of these searches before they are disseminated to my researchers or faculty and add or subtract entries as necessary.

                            It would be helpful to restrict or filter searches with location-based information. This could take the form, specifically, of citizenship requirements (only available to residents of a particular country) or area-of-study (available for study in specific countries).

                                  • Allow for more in-depth Limited Submission classification

                                    The Grant Forward system currently identifies whether a submission is limited in some way, either by PI, institution or geography. However, it does not display which of these (and other) types the opportunity is limited to. I would like the ability to specify this in cases where it is not added automatically by the system.

                                    • Add additional Dissemination methods

                                      Currently, I can disseminate opportunities that match a pre-defined search via email. I would like additional methods such as RSS feeds or an website-embedable list, and might also like to choose the attributes (title, description, amount, etc...) that are listed in these notifications.

                                      • Embed Grant Forward Search in my department's homepage

                                        I would like the ability to embed a search form for Grant Forward directly in my research administration or department's home page. This might allow researchers to search Grant Forward from my own site, and might display a limited set of results with a link to the Grant Forward site for full-results.

                                        • Add Domestic Sponsors with International Focus

                                          I would like to have access to US domestic sponsors that provide opportunities in international countries. These might be travelling fellowships or opportunities that are available to US-based researchers planning on studying in international locations.
