    • New Tool to limit the access to Cos Pivot in Our Institution - Nueva opción para limitar el acceso a Cos Pivot

      In our University we have the Cos Pivot platform, exclusive for the use of plant and administrative teachers in research, focus in the search of International Calls for which we pay an annual subscription, however, in the last months we noticed that anyone who has the domain of the emails of our institution can access the platform. We would like to have an option in which the administrator could select who may or not use the Cos Pivot platform.

      En nuestra Universidad contamos con la plataforma Cos Pivot, exclusiva únicamente para el uso de los docentes de planta y administrativos…

                • 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.”

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                          • 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?

                              We have reached out to InfoReady to learn more from them, but please provide more specifics if you can about what level of axis you expect a Proxy to need. For example, can they only edit profiles? Or, can they search, track, save opportunities, etc.?

Can only select one curated list to send at present, and want to avoid sending multiple newsletters by discipline at least for right now.

                                        • 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.
