  • What is the best way to save email communication in GrantHub?

    You can save emails as a document in a Task under the Opportunity. Any user with access to your GrantHub organization will be able to open these files as long as they have Outlook enabled on their computer.

    In Outlook, click on the email you would like to save in GrantHub, then click on File and click on Save As. Choose the folder you would like to save this in. Also choose the 'type' you want to save the email as in the Save As Type option. Both 'Outlook Message Format - Unicode' and 'Text' file types can be saved as documents in GrantHub. If you save as 'Outlook Message Format - Unicode', keep in mind that you will need to open those files in Outlook to read them. 

    To save in your Task, fill out all required information, click Save and then drag and drop your .msg file and save the Task again.

  • How do I edit a task?
    1. Find the task on the Deadlines list.
    2. Click on the task Name or on the edit icon. 

    3. Make your changes to the task.
    4. Click Save. 
  • Notifying multiple recipients about task deadlines

    Task notifications and reminders sent via email can be copied to multiple recipients. This feature will allow you to keep other team members aware of approaching deadlines - even if they are not assigned as the Task Owner. Additional recipients do not need to be set up as GrantHub users to receive these notifications and reminders. 

    To copy a recipient on the notifications and reminders add their email address to the Notify Additional People field on the task details. Additional recipients do not need to be set up as GrantHub users to receive these notifications and reminders. 

  • How can I tell what Tasks and Opportunities are past due?

    Any past due tasks will be shown with a red circle with an exclamation point in the Name Field.

    You can look at a list of upcoming Tasks and Opportunities on the Deadlines page.
