Close, Abandon, Delete Request - Addition Options
It would be nice that also included would be Close Request - Incomplete and Close Request - Complete.
It would be nice to have a quick glance from the Organization Summary/Request History tab showing past applications as Closed - Complete or Closed - Incomplete.
Closed - Complete = all granting terms completed
Closed - Incomplete = not all granting terms completed
It would also be helpful to our applicants could see if their awarded application was Closed - Complete or Closed Incomplete. (Attached you will find a screenshot showing suggestion from proxy applicant view)

A status of "withdrawn" would be helpful. I have wanted this status before but now, as a result of COVID-19, it would be even more helpful. Several applicants submitted applications that were on track to be approved but they withdrew them because the program could not move forward. Denied seems harsh and in ten years you will have to go in and read the comments to find out it was actually denied but withdrawn.

This would be extremely helpful for SLM as well to be able be able to have an application as incomplete vs marking it abandoned. I would like to use "Abandoned" strictly for applications that were never submitted or submitted on accident, and use "Incomplete" when an application is submitted but is missing 3rd party requests, file uploads, etc.
I think adding a quick "Ineligible" option would also be extremely helpful. Many applicants will submit applications when they aren't eligible. Those applications are not even presented to our committees for review so it would make more sense to mark them as ineligible vs having to deny or mark them abandoned.

It would help me sort out all of my requests if there was an additional request status for grants that are expired or not closed, lumping these grants into the just "approved" bucket, doesn't differentiate grants that have been neglected or are past their completion dates.

This would be a very helpful feature. There are certain organizations that never complete their forms and we would like to keep that as a record for future reference and close the project at the same time.
Automatically marking a form complete because we are closing a project makes it seem like the organization met all requirements when that is not the case.
Mariah Williams commented
This would be a really excellent feature. We have tens of grants in which forms were never complete, but I'd still like to close them. If I close them now, it marks the forms complete. A closed/incomplete status would be very helpful, as long as it clearly identified that the previous grant was closed with forms incomplete for future decision making.
I need to be able to mark a grant report follow up as "incomplete" and be able to close the grant as incomplete. This can be used in the future when making decisions on grants for an organization that has not sent in reports.
