Exporting Funding Opportunities
Currently there is no method to export funding opportunities into a nicely formatted PDF or Word document. It would be very helpful to be able to export funding opps into these formats in order to share with a group of faculty in a meeting. An actual document to pass around the table for discussion and planning would be great.

I totally agree! Especially if the "nicely formatted," included funding highlights: opportunity title (with link), due date(s), funding amounts, & very brief description (2-3 sentences max).
The goal would be to fit 3-5 opportunities on one digestible page that a group of researchers could discuss. It would also same me a huge amount of time to share and highlight information.
Please add an email option to PDF & Word.
As it is now, I have to curate & present these opportunities outside of Pivot, which removes researchers from the valuable search tool. Please see https://www.grants.ca.gov/ for a great presentation of key funding information on one webpage.
I had hoped to do this, as well. I finally created a work-around. This is what I do:
1. Create a (private) curated list
2. Select all funding opps that you wish to announce on the curated list
3. Select Export; HTML format; indicate if you want the full record, standard fields, or select your own fields: Submit.
4. Save as a PDF (within Acrobat use "Convert webpage to PDF."
It's a lot of steps but it's the only way I could create a curated list of funding opps (and save the file as a record) to share announcements in a meeting.
Hope that helps!
