  1. daily alerts

    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! Hilda

  2. List of collaborators on expert profile pages

    When looking for experts in a given field, if they don't have the very specific expertise, or there is a need to identify others in the same field, having a list of co-authors and collaborators listed on the expert profile page would be helpful.

  4. Keywords should be linked in a way to search across profiles and promote connecting users.

    Within the profile detail, any keyword should be a link to the search results for that very keyword. Even better, it could be a link to a listing of users who have also included that same keyword.

    I understand that you can do this manually with the advanced search, but why not automate it and help make connections easier.

  5. Role vs Title in Profiles

    Add an optional text field for Title in addition to the required Role field. Currently in Gallery, I designate which profiles to include by Role. Many faculty have Titles they use in the Role field. Example, Dr. Smith could be a Professor (Role) and Associate Vice Chancellor for Research (Title). I want both to appear in their profile to help ensure I am capturing all faculty by role.

  7. Archive saved searches for more than 1 month.

    It would be nice to have a 2-3 month archiving ability.

  9. Advisor Alert - allow admins to deactivate

    We have created very specific funding opps newsletter for faculty. It is clunky for the recipient to receive the custom newsletter AND the Advisor Alert. I suggest that admins have the right to adjust this preference on behalf of the faculty member.

  10. Add sponsor name to shared opportunity

    The email that goes out when we share an opportunity has the title of the funding program only. I suggest you include the sponsor name as well.
    For example, I recently shared an opportunity from a large company that was called "University Research Awards". If the name of the company was included, researchers would have a clearer idea of what the opportunity was about. In this case, many assumed it was an internal competition.

  11. Include Proposers Days in Pivot

    One can find Proposers Days for DARPA and other agencies through fbo.gov, by searching for "Special Notices"; including these Proposers Days within Pivot would be a useful resource.

  12. Auto hyperlinks to URL for More Information within Excel Sheets

    I've recently been exporting selections from my curated lists to Excel sheets. However, the "URL for More Information" field does not immediately work for me or for other administrators who have "tested" it. We have to juggle between clicking on the opportunity Sponsor column and the More Information column to finally get it to somehow hypelink. It's frustrating and time consuming to say the least. Can this be scheduled as an enhancement for users?

  13. Automatically remove "Expired" listings from curated lists.

    Currently the only way for an expired listing to be removed from a curated list is for an Admin to sort through the list, find all that have expired, and manually "delete" them. If an opportunity expires and is removed from Pivot it should also automatically be removed from a curated list, or at least an admin should have the option to turn on automatic deletion if desired.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. Remove limitations on number of records that can be downloaded per day

    After laboriously selecting a large number of records one page at a time, I got an error message that I could not download more than 600 records in a day. Pivot Support responded: ". As noted you can't export more than 600 records per day. The limit is there because this system is designed for funding management not harvesting."
    My system is to download all opportunities from a search result into an Excel spreadsheet because it is much easier to sort through them. Also, I can append the results from a future repeated search, sort by opportunity number, match the…

  18. Publications full text linking

    Full text linking in Publications (in one's profile) currently only works if there's an abstract.

    And, one then has to click on a magnifying glass, scroll to the bottom of the abstract, and then click on a link to full text.

    Could we make this an easier process, with fewer clicks, such that full text linking is directly under the title information itself, and does not rely on an abstract? Thanks for considering!

  20. Publications

    For Publications, you currently take information from ONLY ORCID, however Computer Science faculty, they use https://dblp.uni-trier.de/, it would be great if you can add this as default.
