NUgrant improvements launch Feb. 1
Improvements to NUgrant will simplify navigation and enable users to quickly find their most recently viewed projects and other critical items for managing grants and fulfilling reporting requirements.
On Feb. 1, the Office of Research and Economic Development will launch NUgrant 6.0, an upgrade that will allow users to personalize the look and feel of NUgrant once they’ve logged into the site. The goal of this upgrade is to make NUgrant more intuitive and relevant to individual users’ needs and preferences, said Tim Savage, manager of the Office of Research and Economic Development’s information systems team responsible for NUgrant.
NUgrant 6.0 will consolidate items from the current menus into a single drop-down menu that can be accessed from anywhere on the site, making essential items easier to find. Users also will be able to customize how their page functions by rearranging items in the main drop-down menu as well as sections on their home page, such as sponsored programs, internal competitions, IRB protocols, IACUC projects and others. Items needing a PI's immediate attention will placed at the top of the home page.
Principal investigators and administrators will be able to designate frequently used forms and projects as 'star' items. Starred items will be highlighted and prominently featured on the user’s home page, making them easy to find.
Other NUgrant 6.0 features include:
NUgrant is a secure online system developed by the Office of Research and Economic Development for UNL's research community. Since 2006, it has provided a paperless environment for submitting, routing and managing funding proposals and for completing research compliance and disclosure of interest forms. More than 2,800 UNL faculty, staff and students use NUgrant.
