My Proposals

The first section, My Proposals, lists proposals that you have created. This includes proposals that are in the process of completion or that have been submitted and are awaiting review. Select a Proposal ID or Designation of Program to edit a proposal. To the left of each proposal are icons providing additional options including reviewing the proposal's history, deleting the proposal, printing the proposal, or viewing related college administrators for the proposal. Each proposal’s ID number, designation, and description are displayed. To the right of the description is the Workflow Status. Hover over the i icon to reveal a proposal’s current status and the number of days it has remained at that status. The workflow status allows users to identify the person to contact if the proposal has any issues.

Requests For My Consultation

Below the My Proposals section is the Requests For My Consultation section listing proposals that have been sent for your review. This section, as well as the others, can be expanded or collapsed by clicking the small square to the left of the section heading. To review a proposal, select the proposal's ID or Designation link. A form will display where you can concur or not with the proposal. Each consultation request listing displays the Consultation Type, Sender, and Recipient.

My Review History

The last section is My Review History. Proposals that require your consultation and have been reviewed will be listed in this section. Proposals here are usually finalized and do not require further processing. To the left of each listing are icons providing options to review a proposal's history,  view the concurring process, hide the proposal history, or print the proposal history for future reference. Expand a proposal’s history by clicking the Concur button, or by clicking the Proposal ID and Designation for more options.
