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

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

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.
