  1. Adding an On/Off toggle to the "Post By Payment" dimension for scholarship creation would be helpful for our Foundation. We’ve requested that members of our scholarships team not use the “Post By Payment” feature when creating scholarships, but it still happens on occasion by mistake. This causes a variance between the General Ledger and the Grants by Fund Report which our Finance Team prefers to avoid when possible for a variety of reasons.

  2. To help increase the efficiency of processing scholarship payments that need to be payable to the student; a bulk action to set grantee to student would be beneficial. Currently, it requires creating the student profiles in CSuite first via a bulk import with the is grantee, is vendor, is student designation then you have to create the scholarship award (manually, via import or through integration). If you use the SLM integration you must set the student as the grantee/payee on each scholarship one by one. This is a very tedious process that leaves lots of room for error, the creation…

  4. I'm on a call with several scholarship managers, several of whom use foundant and we want to be able to communicate with students via text for reminding them about applications, followups, etc... What a difference that would make!

  5. We need to report on scholarship info such as target high school, field of interest, selection committee, etc. so can share with counselors, etc. Could do that with custom fields. The only scholarship custom fields are currently tied to the award, not the scholarship itself. Can't use fund custom fields because some funds have multiple scholarships. Currently managing all this in Excel.

  6. The ability to increase the scholarship award amount after part of the award has been paid would be useful for our organization. Instead of creating a new scholarship for the same student, adding a payment, grant, or award line would tie the awards for the student together in one area. Propose the function to 'Open' the Scholarship to add spendable and create additional grants under the scholarship award and ability to modify remaining scholarship dollar amounts.

  7. Since it isn't possible to integrate CSuite fields into UA follow-up forms yet, it would be great if those fields were available for bulk update.

  8. It would help if the attachment I add to a scholarship (backup documentation) would automatically move with it when it goes into the grants to be paid.

  9. If a scholarship is retired or no longer being used, the ability to inactivate it would be helpful. This would allow that list of scholarships in the scholarships menu to just reflect active scholarships.

  11. Similar to grants create an "Approval" bucket for scholarships so the scholarships would go from New, Approval, Open. Allow approval to be based upon each scholarship & not just each fund.

    This would give foundations that are not using the SLM product another layer/level of approval and segregation of duties. Currently, they can only differentiate who does what based upon the permission groups that each user is in. This makes it harder for the teams to administer when they have a large scholarship team.

  12. We use the short name for funds regularly, and would like to be able to search the short name of funds in multiple areas. Today, I am in the Set Scholarship Fund area and this area does not allow for searching by Fund short name. Can the Fund short name be searchable across the CSuite site?
