  1. notification when the opportunity has been viewed before

    Either a tag/notification next to the program title or a filter on the left-hand side so I can choose to “view all” or only “view unread” and filter out opportunities that have been read before.

  2. daily alerts

    I would love to be able to choose to receive my funding alerts on a daily basis rather than a weekly basis. Sometimes the turnaround time for deadlines is so short that a week away is valuable time lost. Thanks! Hilda

  3. 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.

  4. Incorporate machine learning into Advisor Alert algorithm

    It would be wonderful to build a feedback mechanism for the Advisor Alerts system and incorporate machine learning based on that input. For instance, a scholar could get an Advisor Alert email, mark or dismiss opportunities as they see fit and have that data utilized by the system to create better results for the individual researcher.

  5. Search criteria to include 'confirmed' opportunities

    With large multi-disciplinary institutes particularly, it would be good if the search itself could contain the requirement to only show confirmed opportunities (those that the rounds dates are confirmed by the funder), as opposed to having to filter post the search.

    This would be particularly good for searches associated with newsletters, as then the list is not hundreds to thousands of currently irrelevant opportunities when there are plenty of confirmed opportunities to focus on.

    Additionally this would allow for a search to be set-up for anticipated opportunities, above a certain value that are worth being prepared for.

  6. Default Search List to 200

    Default search or tracked opps results-list to 200 opportunities, rather than 25, so that one can easily scroll through the full list quickly, rather than taking the extra step to choose the larger list. What's the purpose of having a "short" page, rather than simply showing the max?

  7. Allow administrators to hand pick the first 15 opps that show up in newsletter searches/lists

    It would be useful if administrators could individually select the first 15 opportunities in searches/lists that appear on newsletters (as only the first 15 opportunities show up). Right now, you can filter searches by deadline, funding amount, etc - allowing personalized selection would go well with these options. Thank you for your consideration!

  8. Please let us choose timing for sending newsletter

    Hi Pivot-RP Team,

    Could you please allow us to specify more delivery times for sending newsletters. The system allows us to send newsletters at two USA time zones which coincides with 9pm and 4am Australia time, hence it lowers visibility counts by users. Therefore we need to send newsletters during working hours of Australian timing zone.

    Regards,
    Muhammad

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. Admin account matrix

    I would like an overall Admin account matrix where all of the admins could be listed down one column and then all of the access categories could be boxes that can be check/unchecked on one screen instead of having to pull up each admin account individually to change or update access.

  13. Flag when an opp appears in a saved/curated search/list

    I often want to know if the particular opp I am viewing already appears in a saved search, curated search, or curated list. The current way to do this is to move the opp to a new tab (to keep track of the exact title, ID number, etc.) and then slog through individual searches/lists to see if the opp appears in each.

    To make this situation more user friendly, on each opp page, please add an "Appears In" list of saved/curated searches/lists. (This would probably fit best below the "Send feedback" link in the right-side menu.) It would be most…

  15. Display funder name in calendar view

    The calendar view would be more useful if the funder name was displayed on the label with the award name. For instance, I want to create a calendar with major early career awards but the majority have generic names like "young investigator award" or "new faculty award." Someone had asked for a similar update to enable this feature in the details view, but it would be optimal to have the names on the labels too, before opening up the details view.

    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.

  17. "Push" InfoReady Competitions to Pivot

    It would be super neat if admins could "push" competitions (especially internal funding competitions") into Pivot, so that we don't have to manually enter internal funding opportunities if we have InfoReady, we'd just need to push certain information into the partner system. I would enter a lot more internal funding opportunities into the Pivot database if there were an easier way for me to take competitions that are listed/posted in InfoReady and "push" certain data from those competitions into Pivot, so that they show up in our users' searches.

  18. Make 'Subject' in emails from pivot-trackedalert@proquest.com specific rather than generic

    When university admin adds/updates university specific information e.g. deadline or Note, an email is sent from pivot-trackedalert@proquest.com. Emails sent out from this email address all have the same generic subject 'Update from Pivot-RP'.

    When an email is sent from pivot-no-reply@proquest.com (following an opportunity updated by Pivot-RP), the subject line includes the name of the funder eg 'Updated Funding Opportunity - American Heart Association (AHA)'

    Is there some way to edit the subject so that emails advising on an internal update also pick up the scheme name?

    Without some information as to what has been updated the emails are not…
