How can we improve Pivot?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Select which (and how many) opportunities display in a newsletter from a curated list

    The newsletter feature is very helpful, and attracts attention. By default it displays 25 opportunities in alphabetical order. These 25 displayed items may not be the most prioritized in the list. The ability to select a 'Top 10' items to be displayed in the newsletter would help to further customize this tool.

    • Intermediate Proxy Admin Feature for Support Staff

      Administrative personnel need the ability to help faculty in their respective areas or departments, to help faculty update their profiles on an on-going basis. Currently, Pivot offers this as an admin feature on a global scale, where anyone with this capability can make changes to ALL our institutional accounts. Can this feature be modified to narrow down the scope of access?

      Please refer to InfoReady's proxy feature. It has been extremely useful to us. Can you apply something like that to Pivot?

      • Adding a publication to one's profile

        When adding a publication to one's profile, if one could enter only the DOI number, the rest of the publication data should auto-populate. This would make the process much easier and faster for users.

          • Allow admin users to edit organizational profile hierarchy

            Many organizations, especially universities, have a constantly changing organization structure. It would be nice if organizational admin users could have the ability to update the hierarchy structure including, adding new departments, removing department that no longer exist and reorganize existing departments.

                • Enable multiple curated lists to be sent using the Newsletter feature. Current selection is limited to one list

                  We want to send our Healthcare Sciences faculty a monthly newsletter using opportunities from 2 or 3 curated lists, all at once. Can only select one curated list to send at present, and want to avoid sending multiple newsletters by discipline at least for right now.

                    • Add the option of rolling deadlines or no specific deadline for internal funding

                      Some internal funding opportunities accept applications year round. Currently, the only option is to select a set date but once the set date is passed, the funding opportunity disappears. Instead of constantly projecting the date or resetting it, it would be helpful to offer the option of setting deadline to "Open or year round"

                      • Integrate papers invited with funding opportunities

                        If there's a seminar or congress abroad, it could be helpful a hyperlink to access those opportunities that match with travel funding, for example.

                          • Add the ability for users to add items to the deadlines dropdown list

                            Internal Funding - include the ability to add types to the dropdown list in deadlines. (i.e. items that are specific to the institution.) For example, prior to the grant application, we have a required deadline for faculty to create a Box folder within the Office of Sponsored Programs Box so we would want to have the option to select OSP Box deadline instead of selecting Other, which is generic and not specific enough.

                                  Please expand email funding alerts to include all the new opportunities found rather than just a few and making us click on a bigger results page to see the rest? I often get through email on my phone when I don't have internet access but cannot complete processing these alerts until I am at a computer, even if I am not interested in any of the titles.

                                  • Add CFDA numbers or other Grant identifiers to Export reports of tracked opportunities

                                    When we export reports of tracked, active, or saved opportunities we would like to see the Excel spreadsheet include CFDA numbers or other Grant identifiers. We think this might help us match opportunities found in Pivot with what opportunities researchers have applied for.
