Pros: The flexibility and intuitive nature of the process of building multiple applications. I am able to build applications for the many programs we have and customize them to our needs, both front end on the application and back end in staff only sections. The post acceptance sections give me the ability to continue my relationship with the grantee beyond the award. I can have progress reports and final reports that allow me, through conditional logic, to gather what i need for reporting to our funders.

Cons: I wish there were a way to have separate landing pages for separate programs. I also wish I could clone reports from grant round to grant round.

Overall: Flexibility and easy customization to our needs, with a few clever clicks we were also able to use it for project management

Thank you for the positive review Kathy! We love to hear about how our platform is helping our customers. As for having separate landing pages, each grant application has their own URL link which you could advertise as a "separate" landing page. That may be what you are looking for but if not ,our development team is always accepting requests for improvement. By listening to our clients, that is the only way to make sure our product meets the needs for all grant-makers. please submit your all requests on your zendesk portal. Thank you

Overall it is a good program and meets our needs. We have used this software for 4 years.

Pros: We like the section icons in setting up the applications. It is easy to follow. We like the % of completion in each section. It is easy to duplicate an application from year to year. The ability to transfer information from prior applications is helpful. We like that we can create reports from any field but we don't like only downloading into MS Excel.

Cons: The ability to develop easy reports. Wish there were report templates build into the system. Just downloading to MS Excel isn't very user friendly. We would like to be able to print some nice reports from the system. It takes a lot of staff time to make the MS Excel reports in a concise format. For reviewers the scoring rubic and application scrolls separately. We didn't find the new enhancement of the reviewers seeing each other's comments very helpful in the current format.

Overall: It is user friendly. We like having multiple year data on our agency applications. Our reveiwers can access it anywhere internet is available.

Great system

Pros: I like how the volunteers can review all the information on it. How you can switch views from admin to reviewer if anyone of them has a problem with it.

Cons: The complex of the system of making an application public. How to create an application Just a lot of differnet screen you have to go to just to create an application. .
