31. Lets applicants view their status online.
32. System registration follows standard best practices - applicants enter email address and password and are sent a confirmation email.
33. Lets applicants save their application and return to it at a later point.
34. Carries over contact information and other appropriate data for an organisation or grant from one year’s application form to another, or from a Letter of Intent to a proposal—for example, a narrative entered in a Letter of Intent doesn't have to be re-entered in a proposal.
35. Applicants can easily view or print applications at any stage in the process.
36. Both applicant and grantmaker can quickly and easily reset lost credentials.
37. The applicant can create a preview packet of their grant, which includes either copies of all uploaded documents or links to them.
38. The system checks the email address of each new registrant to make sure it doesn’t already exist in the system, and prompts the user if it is a duplicate.
