Please allow administrators to share permissions with other administrators to add to their already existing curated lists.
Please allow administrators to share permissions with other administrators to add to their already existing curated lists. I work with a team of three and each of us are administrators who would like to not only curate our own lists, but have permissions to let other administrators add to or make changes to these lists when necessary. I understand that others that are "users" can see curated lists with no editing rights, but we really want to be able to have other administrators add to our curated lists so this is a "team effort" in curating the best lists for users.

Partner with ORCid to provide a list of Faculty that have ORCid but don't have a registered pivot profile
Use the ORCid API to pull a list of faculty based on current affiliation and be able to send them a promotional email to alert them that we subscribed to Pivot43 votes
Usage Report Expansion
From my perspective as an admin, it would be helpful to see a report that contains the highest frequency searches by opportunity and type of opportunity (foundation, federal, etc.). Not necessarily linked to an account but this would be useful because we want to be able to separate what faculty are interested in from research administrator searches.”26 votes
Expand the number of opportunities shown in email alerts
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.23 votes
Allow multiple administrators of newsletter
Allow for a newsletter to be accessed from multiple admin accounts.23 votes
Create a search widget for Profiles to add to websites
Like funding opportunities has a widget, have a widget available for faculty to search for collaborators that admins can embed into websites.22 votes
Include internal deadlines in Calendar view
The Calendar feature is great. Would be better if it included the internal deadlines we add as well as the agencies' deadlines.20 votes
Newsletter Performance Statistics
Add email performance statistics such as the open rate and click rate. Or bounces or did not open etc. This would be helpful for the evaluation of a campaigns metrics which in Pivot is called Newsletter and by using it replaces traditional email campaigns such as ConstantContact or MailChimp.20 votes
Anticipated/ Confirmed options for Internal Awards
Currently, there's no way to define an internal award as an anticipated deadline (other than in deadline notes). I would like to see Internal Opps function like External Opps so that in the search list it's clearly defined as either Anticipated or Confirmed deadline, and can even be filtered as such like the external awards are.17 votes
Multiple Editing/Management Rights for Internal Grants
Right now, only the person who added an internal grant can delete or edit that opportunity. Anyone else with full administrative rights in Pivot cannot manage the internal grant opportunities added by others. This creates a problem when that person leaves the job that bore the responsibility of adding those internal grants, thus requiring that all those opportunities must be deleted and added to another administrative account. It would be a great help to allow anyone with full administrative rights the ability to manage all internal grants.16 votes
List users by college or department
I'd like to be able to sort my list of users (as listed under User Accounts and New Accounts) by College so that we can track activity by College.15 votes
Provide tracked opps the same features as saved searches
Provide tracked opportunities the same features and functionality of a saved search. This means including the names of the funders in addition to the program grant name and allowing users to drill down to get more specific lists such as "Deadline Certainty," "Funding Types," "Funder Types," etc.13 votes
Customized templates or settings for emails sent from Pivot
I'd like to customize the emails that get sent to a user when I create an account for them, or when I mark something with an internal deadline, etc.12 votes
Percentage on Relevance
When a user sort by relevance, it is very helpful to show the percentage of the relevance.
NSF funding opportunity provides the percentage of relevance.11 votes
View a combined list of funding opportunities for a group of faculty
It would be helpful for an administrative view of all funding opportunities available for a group of faculty (e.g., those in a multidisciplinary center or institute). This would be helpful for research administrators to quickly review, curate, and disseminate relevant opportunities to the group.10 votes
This is partially supported. Could you share more details about this idea. We currently have functionality like this. If you view any profile we will display funding recommendations based on the aggregate profile for the person’s department. But this is at a department level – not institute or center.
Funding opp matches to profiles at institution
When viewing a specific opp, and you select the option at the right side where it matches to "# from inside your institution," allow us the "Refine Search" option on the results page, the same way we do on a profile or funding search.9 votes
Search criteria should specify the LOI date. If LOI date has past, the proposal dates don't matter!
If we are able to specify a date range that is specific to the LOI, then we can generate RFAs that the PI is eligible to apply for in that date range. As it is now, when we specify a date range, the results indicate proposal dates that fall w/in that range which are irrelevant if you missed the LOI date.9 votes
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.7 votes
lnternal Deadlines included in sort
Currently when sorting a search by deadline only the funder dates that are editorially entered by Pivot-RP show up. If I add an earlier internal deadline this shows up on the listing but NOT in the sort. I would like manually entered deadlines (that are usually the "soonest") to be the date that a search uses as the earliest deadline. If we have a limited submission competition for example, I want that due date to show up as the "soonest" in a sort list.7 votes0 comments · Other · Admin →
I would love to be able to choose to receive my funding alerts on a daily basis rather than a weekly basis. Sometimes the turnaround time for deadlines is so short that a week away is valuable time lost. Thanks! Hilda7 votes
