Symplectic Grant Tracker Product Update: Release 7.7

In this release, we have continued to add new features and improvements to make the system easier to use and make life easier for our super users, grant administrators.  


Key features in this release include:

  • A new email notifications feature in the Console header which notifies the logged in user of any new emails requiring their attention and offers a direct link to the email inbox from anywhere in the Console. 
  • Improvements to the recently revamped contracts page to allow you to upload versions of the contract prior to it being issued.
  • Additional filter options for more precisely searching against classifications data.
  • Additional validation for administrators when resetting grant approvals or activations.


We have also made many other other improvements and fixes which are outlined in detail in the full release notes.

Many of the features and improvements in this release have been informed by feedback from our amazing community. Thank you for our feedback to date and please continue to communicate with us through support tickets and direct engagement with the Symplectic Grant Tracker team.

If you have any questions about the release or would like to begin to plan your next upgrade, please just contact us via the Service Desk for assistance.

With this partnership, we have the opportunity to position ourselves as
a world leader in the development of the scholarly ecosystem.

I cannot overstate how pleased we have been.
We have to have confidence to work with a partner
for at least 5 years on a project of this size.

The University measures the individual research activity of academic staff. This Measure of Research Activity (MoRA) requires the collection of publication data from faculty. Symplectic Elements supports this beautifully.

[Elements] will help to bring transparency to the richness of thought showcased within non-traditional publications, providing a more holistic representation of faculties’ scholarly work.

Caleb Smith, University of Michigan

Feedback to date has been extremely positive from all levels across the University, with individual academics and colleagues actively promoting the ease of use of the system.
