  1. We would love the ability to display ranking options in text to our evaluators, such as
    Extremely Clear
    Very Clear
    Somewhat Clear
    Not So Clear
    Not at All Clear

    BUT - We'd like to store them as numeric data so that
    Extremely Clear =5
    Very Clear =4
    Somewhat Clear =3
    Not So Clear =2
    Not at All Clear =1

    To be clear, we don't want to show the numeric to the evaluator, just the text.
    Currently, we use a complicated formula to calculate the data.

  2. Building forms with many branching questions groups can get confusing. It would be nice, as an admin, to be able to see how each question group is branched within a form without having to click on each one.

  3. Branched questions with incorrect question will be marked red. It would be for branched questions to be marked red if no rules have been assigned yet.

  4. We really like the clone feature available when editing a table, and it would be helpful if this were available for all questions. Having to manually copy over the drop-down items and additional information is very time consuming.

  5. Can Foundant add numeric grant numbers that auto-counts grants in a process?

    For example, we support research projects and grantees need to acknowledge it in the research paper with something to the effect of "We acknowledge financial support from "Foundation Name" under grant # ("Foundation Acronym"-***) at the end of the paper. The grant number allows for tracking where we would enter in the grant number in something like Google Scholar and see how many papers have been published through it.

    Right now, there are no unique identifiers for Grants to track externally.

  6. While I understand why you cannot delete question fields once an applicant or staff member has submitted a response on it, sometimes that question needs to be deleted moving forward and based on how we have set things up it is preferred to not create/copy a new process when we want to make deletions. It would be nice to be able to "toggle"/hide a question from the applicant/grant manager on forms when we no longer want them to be answered/used.

  7. Currently, the only way to provide a form to be completed is through links. I'd like to attach an excel spreadsheet that needs to be completed and uploaded by applicants. We have run into issues where links to forms break and it would be much simpler to provide the attachment within the application question.

  8. It would be helpful for grant agreements to be able to have the organization and user registration information available to populate the agreement form. Otherwise they need to be entered again to have a stand-alone document.

  9. We have a budget form with a table for Revenue and a table for Expenses. It would be great to be able to calculate the net (revenue minus expenses) without the applicant having to do math or cut-paste totals from the separate tables into a third table or field.

  10. I love the addition of tables and the summary row but I also would like to see a summary column so we can have totals automated on both ends of the table.

  11. Need the system to generate a score for the application based on how questions on the application are answered. For example: a GPA between 3.8-4.0 would receive 10 pts, 3.6-3.79 would receive 8 pts, etc. This could be a % score.

  12. Currently the columns in tables are all the same width, but there are use cases where it would make sense for one column to be wider than another.

    For example, in our budget we have 5 columns - Expense, Request, Cash Match, In-Kind Match, and Calculation/Description. By my calculation if you have 5 columns only 33 characters are visible at one time. However, in our use case, 3 of the fields would not contain more than 7 characters (plus the characters for the column headings). Being able to resize those columns would free more real estate for fields where users…

  13. Currently, when I create a table that may have an unknown number of rows used (such as asking applicants to list the date, time, location of grant-funded events), I just have to guess at what might be the right number of rows to add. If an applicant only uses one row of 10 available, the application packet will still print all 10 rows and use up a lot of space. Can blank rows be collapsed in the application packet?

    (Even better would be to allow applicants to add rows if needed, but I suspect that's more complicated.)

  14. The addition of the subtotal function within tables is great, but more is needed for it to be compatible with my workflow. In particular, I would like to be able to have a subtotal that captures other subtotals.

    For example, I have one grant that has three funding categories, and one non-funding category. I can subtotal each of the three funding categories, but it won't let me then see a subtotal of those three added together, only the total of the three funding categories plus the non-funding category (which I also need, but I want to see both). Otherwise I…

  15. Often I have a series of yes/no questions that might be easier or less intimidating to an applicant if they were in a single table. While I know that I can create that using a drop down menu, it would require less of the system, and potentially move faster if it were a choice for a column setting. The same concept (creating a column setting) would also be useful to number rows that data is entered in.

  16. Have the option to enter the # of rows you want when cloning. Instead of having to clone 10 times, i can click "clone row" 1 time and enter a number and badaboom badabing i have that many copies of the row. Magic!!!

  17. It would be helpful to have answers that were selected earlier from a drop down list be able to carry over to another part of the application.

    Totals from tables carrying over to a budget summary table would also be useful.

  18. Currently, if I copy a table in another application like Excel or a web browser, it pastes all the values into the destination cell. It would be great if I (and our grantees!) could paste or upload table data from other sources.

  19. Need to be able to branch from table responses. For example. We formerly used 2 radio button questions for reporting year and reporting month. When grantees respond with specific months (end of quarters), certain question groups will open.

    Now, we want to convert 2 questions into 1 table (a column for year and another for month), but we can't use our branching groups now.....:-(

  20. Request: Ability to apply regular expressions (REGEX) to a field in a table-style question.

    Use Case: Applicants are asked to assign percentages (%) to demographic questions about the population served. The total at the bottom must add up to 100%.

    Example:

    * 20% -- A
    * 20% -- B
    * 20% -- C
    * 20% -- D
    * 20 % -- E
    * 20% -- F
    TOTAL: 120% <-- would be rejected because it is not 100%
