Searching for Committee Members
When searching for users, if I need members of a certain committee, it would be great to be able to search by committee name (name of grant or scholarship) since the name of those on the committee may not be known at that time.
Thank you for your thought. The ideas of “Committees” have been on our mind here at Foundant lately and we are trying to understand them better. I would love to know how you envision something like searching or setting committees for evaluators? Do you see people being in multiple committees? Are committees always a one to one relationship between processes or is there another way to think of them?
Any additional thoughts are appreciated.

As I am assisting with scholarships and seeing the committee function in UA, I am very jealous! I am now back into GLM and sifting through a large list that keeps growing. Please consider a committee feature for GLM!

Good Morning Sammie,
I'll be honest that I am new to the committees at our Foundation here in Alaska. However, when folks join grants and/or scholarship committees there can be overlap and the same person may be on a few. My thought was under the grant or scholarship name (ex. 2018 DOYLE Scholarship) we can have a tab listing the committee members and also able to search for them in the drop down. Our local committees meet together and will forward their meeting minutes and award decision and we then process that information. The committee also creates any changes and we ultimately approve them.
I sure hope I am making sense! I think essentially, being able to search for specific committees/evaluators the same way you would search for an organization (just by grant or scholarship name) and user would be helpful.
Thanks and please reach out again for more questions and clarification!
