Good news, call administrators: You no longer have to re-open a call just to create a late submission. Now, even if your call’s submission deadline has passed, you will continue to see it on the Start a Proposal page.
A few important notes:
- Only you and your fellow administrators can see the call on the Start a Proposal page. If you want to allow a non-administrator to start a proposal, you will need to re-open the call.
- The call will remain listed on the Start a Proposal page until it is archived.
- Proposals you create are attached to your account. If you want to create a proposal on behalf of someone else, you will need to add that person to the proposal so that he/she can have access to it.
- Proposals you create after the submission deadline has passed will still need to be approved for review.
We’ve just posted a brief tutorial on YouTube that explains how to review submissions in ProposalSpace:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTWIBReUifc. If you manage a call, you might want to have your reviewers view the tutorial before they get started so they know what to expect.
If you have any suggestions for how we can improve the tutorial—or would like to see us create videos for other topics—just let us know!
If you are one of the growing number of organizations using ProposalSpace for managing award nominations, you might not have cared for the term “proposal” we use throughout the site (for example, “Start a Proposal” or “Edit Proposal”).
Well, good news. Now you can customize the term. The default is still “proposal”, but you can change it to “nomination”, “abstract”, “idea”, or anything else that fits your needs. Just pull up the call and look in the General Settings page for a field called Submission Type.
We’ve made it easier than ever to find your way around ProposalSpace with breadcrumbs. Just check the top of any page to see where you are in relation to your Account Home page.
Call administrators: Have you ever come across a proposal that, for whatever reason, you just want to ignore? Now you can [with ProposalSpace]!
Simply select “Ignore” (from the Options menu) for any draft proposal or unapproved submission and ProposalSpace will treat it as if it never existed. To see the proposals you’ve chosen to ignore, just click the “Show Ignored” link. And to start tracking an ignored proposal again, just select “Don’t ignore”.
