  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Make Explode Function default to Unchecked

    Users at our institution are selecting specific narrow and broad keywords - not whole hierarchies of keywords. It would be nice if the explode box function did not automatically default to being checked as soon as a keyword is selected. It would also be helpful if there were some kind of description warning users what that Explode function does.

  6. 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!

  7. When using SSO, the ability for clients to specify a custom page that users will be redirected to when logging out.

    For those who want users to land on a page that will log them out of their SSO system, and not just Pivot, upon logout.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Include "Sponsor Type" information in what can be exported in funding results.

    Include "Sponsor Type" information in what can be exported in funding results. We can search by sponsor type but not see what types of sponsors are showing up in the results.

  11. search

    Allow users to choose whether they are searching for exact match or contains. So I could say that I want to search for people with the name Boe and it either return only exact matches or any name that contains boe.

  12. 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.

  13. When users view a public curated search, it should function like a search result page so that they can further narrow the opps

    Publicly-viewable curated searches would be much more useful to our users if, when they viewed the search, it looked more like a regular search results page, where users can further narrow and manipulate the results based on their own needs. They could use the narrowing features to the left (like only seeing opps in the list from federal agencies, etc.), and also if they could narrow to the last seven days to see what is new in the search.

    This could hopefully also improve the newsletter feature and embedded search feature, because you could have the embedded search and the…

  15. Import publications/integration

    Develop a way to integrate with additional tools such as Digital Measures. Our faculty use that program much more extensively than they do ORCID and it would be nice to be able to import their publications from that system.

  16. 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?

  18. 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…

  19. tracked opportunity deadline reminder

    For tracked and set to active alerts, I would like to be able to set the deadline reminder to 4 months before the deadline. Currently you can only set the deadline reminder up to 3 months before the deadline. Limited competitions that require the institution to hold an internal selection process require more than 3 months to conduct the internal selection process and then submit a well thought through complete proposal,

  20. 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.
