  • 1.  Keywords in Cayuse SP

    Posted 09-09-2020 17:40

    I am curious to see how other institutions are handling keywords for proposals and awards in Cayuse SP. Our leadership is asking for more and more details on the areas of PI engagement and we currently are not capturing keywords for proposals and awards.

    If you are using keywords:
    - in what section are they added?
    - do you allow free text or do you have drop-down with a list of keywords?

    Hi Vibeke,
    At Notre Dame, we do not enter keywords anywhere.
    When there is a subject we wish to track that is not already
    in Cayuse, we request a flag.

    Flags have been a great addition to Cayuse (IMHO) because
    they offer a solution when previously we re-purposed a
    current, un-used field which, in general, is not a good idea..but we did it. :-)

    We re-purposed a field when Uniform Guidance took effect,
    and thankfully now we no longer need to do that.
    All the best,
