Watch a demonstration of new features in the PI Dashboard, as given at the September 2016 Office of Sponsored Programs Round Table Meeting by the PI Dashboard Product Manager. In this video, we also discuss what's next on the roadmap for systems delivered by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research at Cornell.
Dashboard development is back in full swing. It feels great to be back! (We were sidetracked by the annual research expenditures and the conflict of interest processes.) Here's what we have queued up for this summer and early fall.
- Bug Fixes
- Editable Notes -- Make notes to yourself your research administrators
- Improvements to existing pages -- You've given us some feedback, we've been listening
- Personnel -- See the status of your research team at a glance
- Monthly Research Status Email -- A quick summary of your research projects and personnel so you don't need to check them in the PI Dashboard.
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research (OVPR) is building the PI Dash, under the oversight of a faculty steering committee and according to faculty specifications. The PI Dash is designed to be an easy to use, modern browser-compatible web user interface that, when it is fully implemented, faculty will be able to use as a single point for obtaining all the information needed to effectively manage the administrative aspects of their sponsored projects and their full financial portfolio, both sponsored accounts and other funds. -- A similar announcement was sent to remaining PIs on March 3rd, 2016
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research (OVPR) held a product launch event at the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) round table meeting. OVPR and their Research Administration Support (RAS) Information Services team announced the initial release of their PI Dashboard system, which will be rolled out to faculty across campus over a 2 month period starting in January. The slide deck from the presentation is available and a video of the event is posted in this article.
