UDW+ Grants Management Dashboard Training and Access
The full version of the UDW+ Grants Management Dashboard provides useful financial information to Principal Investigators and Grant Administrators for managing grants and other fund sources (such as gifts and start-ups). It includes ability to view all grants financials on one page including grants that might require attention such as grants coming to the end, grants with insufficient balances, or waiting for funding from the sponsors. Information is available at the summary level with ability to drill-down to additional details, and is also viewable by calendar, grant, or fiscal years.
An online training tutorial* of about 20-30 minutes is available through NYU iLearn. To ensure basic understanding and knowledge of the Grants Management Dashboard, upon completion of the training tutorial, you will be asked to answer a few questions.
To gain access:
- Login to NYU iLearn.
- In the "Search for a Course" box, type "FIN 800".
- From the search results, open FIN 800: UDW+ Dashboards Online Training. From the available training modules listed, select Grants Management Dashboard (for PI) and complete the tutorial. (Please note that you will see two modules for the Grants Management Dashboard. One is intended for the PIs, and one for the Grant Admins. Be sure to select the correct module.)
- Upon completion of the FIN 800 tutorial, go back to the Course Catalog and search for "FIN 803". (Please note that iLearn also contains FIN 804: UDW+ Grants Mgmnt Dashboard (for Grant Admins) Quiz, which are questions intended for the Grant Administrators. Please be sure to select FIN 803: UDW+ Grants Mgmnt Dashboard (for PI) Questions.)
- Complete the few questions in the FIN 803: UDW+ Grants Mgmnt Dashboard (for PI) Questions.
Access to the full Grants Management Dashboard will be granted within three business days. At which point you will receive an email confirmation.
The lite version of the UDW+ Grants Management Dashboard is designed specifically for the Principal Investigator and provides a very high-level overview of grants financials (including other funds such as gifts and start-ups) along with the ability to view who and what is being charged to the grant.
The lite version is intuitive with minimal system interaction, and therefore, training is not required.
