  1. Organizing Universes

    It would be nice if Universes were ordered alphabetically or if administrators could drag/drop to order. You can drag/drop Processes to order them, but not Universes. Universes show in the order in which they were built, which doesn't make much sense when an applicant scrolls down the page.

  2. Pending Deadlines

    It would be very helpful if, on the applicant side of the dashboard, that urgent items/impending due dates could be big/red/or listed at the top of each process.
    We consistently run into grantees not being able to find their final grant report/follow up forms that are due on their dashboard because it's listed at the bottom and not called to attention in any real way.

    Also, many grantees never see the edit button to the far right because there's a large white space after the text, so they assume there's no more information and don't realize that the full page…

  3. SLM Flow of Application Questions for Student

    So I'm working on YR 2 for our UA. Making edits and trying to get a better handle on it all. I'm in now as an applicant. We have sections of questions: shared by all of the scholarships, shared by some of them, and then ones that are only for one scholarship. Question groups are collapsible, right? Going on the scenario that a kid is eligible for several, wouldn't it be good for those shared question sections that they've already completed to be hidden or collapsed? Now I'm old, but it seems clunky and confusing to even have them there…

  4. Greater space between processes on the Apply Page

    I would like to see a bigger space between multiple processes that are open on the "Apply" page. Currently, there is a tiny space between each process' "box", and our applicants frequently click the first blue "Apply" button they see.... which is often for the process below the one for which they actually want to apply. We have instructions saying to click the button at the top-right of the box but we all know people don't read well. If there was greater differentiation between the list of open grants then applicants may scroll back up to the correct Apply button.

  5. "Copy Address From Organization" when there is no user registration address fields

    There is a button that says "Copy Address from Organization" that allows registrants to autofill their org's address into the user's address section. But when you hide all the user address fields, that button still appears and can be a little confusing for applicants when they register.

  6. Application Dashboard Organization

    I know there is a topic that is already about Applicant Dashboard Organization but I think there is still improvements that can be made for the Applicant & Student view. I am coming from SLM so this may not be a problem for GLM, but at any one given time, one student could be workong on 5+ applications making it difficult and overwhelming to see all their applications.

    It would be more helpful if the applications on the Active Requests tab sorted by the Application Status so all Submitted Applications would be grouped at the bottom and all Draft Applications…

  7. Change Applicant Dashboard View

    A lot of our users get confused when they initially look at their applicant dashboard because all of the grant requests are expanded and finding each individual grant gets confusing. Also, the title of each grant does not stand out very well since it is just a grey button. It would be helpful if we could change the default view of the applicant dashboard so that all of the requests are collapsed, and then you can click on each to expand, instead of starting with the expanded view.

  8. Batch turn on/off "Show Applicant this Comment"

    Can there be a button that lets you turn on/off all comments' visibility to an applicant/grantee in an application/form with the click of a button? For applications, we have multiple reviewers and the grant manager has to go through each comment one by one and make it visible after all are done reviewing.

  9. Dashboard tab colors

    It would be great to have a feature where we could change the color of tabs on the applicant dashboard. We get many calls from applicants who are having difficulty navigating their dashboard and breaking up the dashboard with different colors would likely help with this.

  10. Limit Applicant's Draft Applications within a Process

    Please consider adding the option in the Process Summary that allows us to limit the number of applications an applicant can begin within that process. We only accept one application for most of our grant programs and would like to be able to set a limit to the number of applications one can start. Currently, applicants can start multiple drafts of an application. This creates lots of abandoned applications.

    The Apply button could be deactivated and greyed out once an applicant has reached the limit of applications that can be drafted and submitted within the process.

  11. Make the "Edit" on the Follow up Reports Bigger, Bolder or more obvious. Grantees can't see it!

    Grantees are frequently asking where do they enter their follow up reports. It's just not obvious on their Dashboard.

  12. Make the Apply option more visible on the applicant dashboard.

    New applicants are seeking the apply option when they log in the first time. While the new format for the dashboard makes other navigation clearer, the Apply gets lost in the navigation bar at the top of the page. Suggest making the Apply option larger and bolded so it's more visible.

  13. Group collapsed on applications

    When an applicant returns to the application to resume work, the groups of questions could be collapsed and if all questions within the group are complete - the group could be flagged (with a check or a color change). Or, have an option to allow the admins to create the applications in pages, which can be flagged as complete when all questions are filled in on that page.

  14. All grantee users should be able to see follow up assignments and question list for follow up in organization history

    I love that we can allow all users to see the organization's request history - we just put this into place. However, they can't see who the follow ups are assigned to, and can't see the question list for the follow up - will that eventually be added? (I'm sure it's complex technologically.) It would be so helpful if they could see, "oh, Emily the CFO is currently set up to submit the follow up, and I can contact the funder to get it assigned to me now that Emily has left the organization." or even "oh, Emily has access…
