Enhanced Management Console UX with New Menu and Navigation
Following our commitment to UX and accessibility improvements, we have made significant enhancements to the Management Console UI to offer both user experience improvements and an updated approach to menus & system navigation.
A core aspect of the new design is a new menu for the Grant Tracker Management Console, which is significantly based on feedback gathered through UX research sessions with our user community. The new menu makes it easier than ever for users to find their way around the system.

Introducing the new Grant Tracker API
We’re also excited to be launching the Grant Tracker API, the latest addition to our collection of integration interfaces, which can be used to securely feed data from Grant Tracker to other systems and to create and update data within Grant Tracker in bulk. The new API is being launched with a core set of functionality designed to cater to the most-common integration use cases. We anticipate growing the range of data and functionality available via the API over time.
Other major improvements in this release include:
- New functionality to allow Progress Reports and Change Requests to be included within Review Meetings.
- New integration with GRID to enhance the capture of organisational information.
- New functionality to allow the bulk import of payment schedules.
- Lots of other new features and fixes developed in response to feedback from our community!
