  1. InfoReady Integration: Pulling Internal Deadlines Back Into Pivot

    It would be amazing (and hopefully this is eventually the plan) if the Pivot/InfoReady integration had the functionality that, once you "push to" IRR and create the competition, that when you "launch" the competition it also exports data like competition URL and internal deadline back into Pivot to add to the Deadlines section of the opportunity. Right now I'm doing this manually, and having it done automatically would save me lots of time.

  2. 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!

  4. Newsletter Performance Statistics

    Add email performance statistics such as the open rate and click rate. Or bounces or did not open etc. This would be helpful for the evaluation of a campaigns metrics which in Pivot is called Newsletter and by using it replaces traditional email campaigns such as ConstantContact or MailChimp.

  6. 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?

  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. Bi-weekly (twice monthly) newsletter option

    Currently there is only a weekly or monthly option for a newsletter. Weekly may bee too frequent for some faculty while monthly could cause an opportunity to slip through the cracks.

  9. Multiple Editing/Management Rights for Internal Grants

    Right now, only the person who added an internal grant can delete or edit that opportunity. Anyone else with full administrative rights in Pivot cannot manage the internal grant opportunities added by others. This creates a problem when that person leaves the job that bore the responsibility of adding those internal grants, thus requiring that all those opportunities must be deleted and added to another administrative account. It would be a great help to allow anyone with full administrative rights the ability to manage all internal grants.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Include Proposers' Days and opportunity-related webinars on the opportunity pages.

    The DOD and NSF frequently have Proposers' Days and other webinars/info sessions about specific funding opportunities. Including these dates with the other opportunity information would be very helpful so faculty don't have to hunt for them.

  14. 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…

  15. Editing Funding Contact Person to Be or Include Campus Contact Person

    We want to be able to add our own Foundation/Corporate Engagement representatives to the “Funding Contact Person” part of a opportunity page--or even replace it with our own contact if possible. With most of our foundation/corporate opportunities, we don’t want the user to contact the foundation’s own representative directly. Instead, we want them to contact our own relationship manager for that foundation first. Adding this as a note to the bottom of the page is ineffective; users don't see it. We want to add to or replace the contact information already listed at the top right of the page.

  17. lnternal Deadlines included in sort

    Currently when sorting a search by deadline only the funder dates that are editorially entered by Pivot-RP show up. If I add an earlier internal deadline this shows up on the listing but NOT in the sort. I would like manually entered deadlines (that are usually the "soonest") to be the date that a search uses as the earliest deadline. If we have a limited submission competition for example, I want that due date to show up as the "soonest" in a sort list.

  20. Search criteria should specify the LOI date. If LOI date has past, the proposal dates don't matter!

    If we are able to specify a date range that is specific to the LOI, then we can generate RFAs that the PI is eligible to apply for in that date range. As it is now, when we specify a date range, the results indicate proposal dates that fall w/in that range which are irrelevant if you missed the LOI date.
