  1. Filter opps by anticipated or confirmed

    In funding searches, allow us to include or exclude opportunities based on Pivot's "confirmed" or "anticipated" deadline categorization.

  3. Extend multiple result export feature to regular users

    Currently admins can export multiple results as Excel, HTML, etc., but regular users can't. Please extend the feature to them.

  4. Have private but sharable curated lists

    I'd like to be able to save my own curated list that is not openly available to everyone who has access and allow to share with just key individuals. If I can pull some key information and create a list just of that topic, it would be helpful to me to share with collaborators.

  5. Need NIH NOSIs included in Pivot

    Please find a way to include NIH Notices of Special Interest (NOSIs). These are becoming more and more critical because NIH is phasing out Program Announcements and replacing them with NOSIs. Major funding announcements are not being picked up by Pivot. For example, this urgent NOSI related to the coronavirus: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-AI-20-030.html. Researchers will get very annoyed if these are not included in Pivot and will have to go directly to NIH to set up separate email alerts. It makes it more difficult for me to market Pivot to encourage them to use it if it’s not picking up these…

  6. Add Fields in the Internal Funding

    An 'Eligibility' field would be helpful. Also update the citizenship/residence drop down to include "Other" or "Not Required"

  7. 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?

  8. 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.

  9. 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"

  10. 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.

  11. Split Citizenship/Residency into two separate Criteria

    For the sake of our many international faculty and students, Citizenship and Residency should be two separate criteria so that Non-Us Citizens do not have to weed through those opps that are tagged as US even though they allow nonUS citizens to apply.

  13. Allow Institutional Admins to Delete User Accounts

    It would be great if admins could have more control over user accounts for their institution. Specifically, I would like to see admins be able to remove user accounts. At our institution, we have duplicate accounts, as well as accounts for users who have left the institution or are deceased.

  14. 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.

    This is included with our Embedded Search feature. We had this for a while, so apologies for not updating the status sooner. If you need assistance with “embedded searches” or more information please let us know.

  16. Improve phrase searching

    When using quotes, include all terms, including stop words. For example, currently team and research are stop words, making a search for “team science” or “collaborative research” impossible.

    Funding Type: Collaboration or Cooperative Agreement is a good start for this particular topic, but it’s not sensitive enough for our needs. For example, it misses Collaborative Sciences Award (Opp ID 169472), which is tagged only with funding type:Research.

  17. 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.

  18. We would like to have our logo in custom branding link to our homepage

    We have added our logo using the custom branding functionality in Pivot, but we would like to be able to add a custom link so that clicking on the logo would take users to our homepage.

    By default the logo now links to the Pivot home page when in the Pivot application. (It does not link from alerts or newsletters) Please comment or open another idea if more specific functionality is desired.

  19. Offer Administrators the Ability to Delete Accounts/Profiles

    There are many duplicate accounts at my institution that were created in error by a researcher that did not know they had an account already. This leads to many login errors and general confusion.

  20. Access Pivot from Cayuse. This would allow single sign on.

    Currently we can access Cayuse from Pivot (if we find an opportunity in Pivot we can download it into Cayuse for submission) it would be nice if we could access Pivot from Cayuse, that way our family could use their single sign on and only have to manage one password instead of two.
