Allow grantees to submit a follow-up before the previous one has been marked "complete"
Allow grantees to submit a follow-up before the previous one has been marked "complete." Currently, grantees are unable to submit final reports before we internally have marked the interim reports as complete. There should be a feature that enables us to choose whether grantees can submit the next follow-up before the previous one is marked as "complete"
want to give you an update that we are currently in conversations around changing the structure of follow ups as a setting.
Will work to keep you updated in the coming week/months.

This has been a huge problem for us! The grantees need to be able to see the reports they will need to file later in advance to know what they will be asked and what kind of information they should be collecting! Please fix this!
This is a definite need for our organization. Different departments require different follow-ups, and often have deadlines that are very close to each other, if not the same. As noted in a previous response, some follow-ups require a longer period of time before they can be marked complete, so this can lead to frustration by both staff and applicants.
The default should be to allow grantees to submit their next follow up (even if the prior one has not been marked complete yet.)
I agree, while some of the administrators are able to review and take action in a follow-up not all follow-ups will be completed in a short period so it would be great if we can allow the applicant/grantee the ability to submit multiple uploads on the active grants.

This is a very important (and increasingly necessary) feature for our foundation as well, particularly as reports and renewal proposals all live in follow up forms and have close deadlines. I hope there is an update soon.
