Several Status screens in eRA Commons moved to a new visual appearance on October 27 [see Oct. 25 eRA News (screens for signing officials) and Oct. 3 eRA News (screens for both SOs and principal investigators)]. Note that this means that there are new ways to navigate to the information you need and new methods to quickly find what you are looking for in Status.
Here is a primer:
- Looking for action items? Click the three-dot ellipsis next to a grant number to see a drop-down menu of action items.
- Aiming to navigate to another module? Click the apps menu, located in the upper left of the blue header to see a dropdown of other modules you are authorized to see.
- Needing info quickly? Use the table filter to type a PD/PI name, a grant number, etc. and quickly locate the information.
The new Search screen has nine Search Type options presented in a dropdown menu instead of listing them at the left side of the screen. When an SO selects a particular search, the screen dynamically changes or redirects the SO to a new screen that reflects the search.
For additional details with screen shots, see Navigating and Using the User Interface in eRA Modules (or you can always view Status Module online help from within the module by clicking the question mark icon next to the screen header).
