Foundant GLM/SLM Features: Custom Columns and Collaborator

For your convenience, you can download the webinar slides here.

Custom Columns and Collaborator features are changing how foundations and applicants use their grants and/or scholarship sites. Custom Columns can help you find the information you need quickly and directly on your dashboard. For example:

  • Amount requested on LOI or Application workload pages.
  • Program/focus area on Application workload pages for easy visibility when assigning evaluators.
  • Amount awarded and the sum of that data on the Approval Draft and Approved pages.

Our Collaborator feature allows applicants to invite others to collaborate on their request - whether it be someone from the same organization, a fiscal sponsor, or a collaborating nonprofit. The applicant can decide whether each collaborator should be able to view, edit, or submit forms within the request. 

We've found this feature helpful in several common scenarios:

  • You'd like an applicant's Executive Director to directly sign off on their Application or Grant Agreement.
  • You encourage collaboration on requests among those involved with the project or program.
  • An applicant needs assistance from others within their organization on a specific question, i.e. budget or other financial information.

Watch our Foundant experts as they demonstrate how these features can make your job easier and your applicants more efficient.
