Your Dashboard

1. Click the Home icon to access your Dashboard.

2.  There are two tabs on your Dashboard:

• Active tab: contains your draft requests, submitted requests still under consideration, and any approved requests that are still active.

• Historical tab: contains any of your other requests that are no longer active.

3. The actions you can take on forms for a request depend upon the form's status. 

·• Click View to see a form you've already submitted.

• Click Edit to continue working on a form you haven't yet submitted.

– This includes follow up forms which might be assigned if your request is approved.

• For an approved request, you might see the option to click View Details. This displays more information about the grant award.

• Click Edit Organization to update your organization's information.

Additional Information About Completing Forms

• Some questions have character limits.

– You will not be allowed to submit the form until the length of your responses to these questions fits within the character limits.

– Responses that are longer than the limit will be saved, but an error message will appear informing you that the limit has been exceeded.

• File upload questions accept only one file per question. 

– If you attempt to upload a file that is larger than the limit, you will receive an error message informing you that the file is too large and the file will not be saved.

– If you attempt to upload a file in an unaccepted file type, you will receive a warning that the file type is not acceptable; you will not be able to upload the file.

– Once a file has been uploaded, it can be deleted by clicking the red X next to the file name.

• If you’ve been assigned multiple follow up forms, you must complete them sequentially by due date. You’ll see the option to edit and submit the follow up with the earliest due date, but you will not see that option for the other follow ups yet. You might also see the option to preview and save your work on forms with later due dates, but you still must submit the forms in order by due date.

Inviting Collaborators to Your Request

1. Click Collaborate in the upper right corner of the screen as you’re working on a form within your request (e.g. the LOI, application, a follow up form).

2. In the pop-up that appears: 

• Enter the email address for the person you’d like to collaborate with on your request. 

• Type a message to that person, letting them know what you need them to do.

• Select the permission level for this collaborator (view, edit or submit). 

– Please note: these collaborator permissions apply to all forms within your request (e.g. the application and any follow ups assigned to you). If you select edit, for example, the collaborator can edit any forms within your request.

• Click Invite

3. The system now sends an email invitation to the collaborator.

4. After sending the invitation, you’ll see options in the pop-up for managing the collaborator you just invited (as well as any other collaborators you already invited). Here you can: 

• View the status of the invitation (i.e. whether or not it’s been accepted). 

• Resend the invitation. 

• Edit the collaborator’s permission level.

• Remove the collaborator from your request.

Collaborator Experience

1. After you click Invite, the collaborator receives an email from the system with your message and a link to log on.

2. When the collaborator clicks the link in the email, they’re brought to the Register page (if they haven’t already registered for an account). 

• Once they’ve registered, clicking the link will bring them to the Logon page.

3. After registering or logging on, the collaborator lands on their dashboard. The request you invited them to collaborate on is located in the Collaboration Requests tab.

• They’ll see a link to view or edit (depending upon their permissions and the status of the form) each available form in your request.

Adding New Users to Your Organization

The collaborator feature can be used to add a new user under your organization in a site without contacting the site’s grant administrator. 

1. From any existing or new request, click Collaborate at the top of a form. 

2. From the Collaborate pop-up, enter the email address of the person you want to invite to your organization in the site. 

3. Select the Can view permission level.

4. Type a message to the new user, including the instructions below, and select Invite. You may copy and paste this example message if you’d like.

“Please register as a contact with our organization following the steps below. 

• Click the link below, enter your name and a new password, then click Register.

• At the top of the dashboard, click Apply

• Click Complete Registration.

• Click into the Organization drop-down box and select our organization.

• Complete the additional required fields and click Save.

You have now been added to the site under our organization and can log in using your email address and password.”

5. If the invited user follows the instructions above, they will be added as a contact under your organization in the site and will have completed their full user registration. This means that they can start new requests in the site just as you can. 

Please note: The new user will not be able to view your organization’s historical requests in the site.  Please contact Director of Grants Manager Kristine Schultz ( or 513-458-6619) to request that the new user be able to view your organization’s historical requests.
