Description:
"New & Improved User Interface Available Now” … Based on feedback and input from the wide variety of colleges and universities participating in the ongoing development of the web-based Kuali Coeus research administration application, the appearance and flow of the data entry fields for the proposal and budget sections of KC has been transformed. The new interface is intended to be more user-friendly, and will look more like other websites and web-based forms. The highlights include simplified initial data entry, fewer open browser windows or tabs, easier navigation, and a lighter, more open look in place of the densely packed multiple tabs and panels of the original design.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: This session will be an overview of the new look, with a limited demonstration of functionality, but not a full training session. Targeted audience: 1. Department research administrators and research faculty/staff who will use KC to create proposal records and develop budgets for review by Sponsored Programs and submission to external funding agencies or for applicable internal funding opportunities. 2. Sponsored Programs pre-award staff who will use the application for the proposal review and submission process.
