Not sure that tweet made sense. When entering the start or end date, a little calendar pops up to let you select the date. It pops up showing May and I needed to advance it to September for the start date of my program. Every time I clicked on the calendar arrow to advance to the next month, the whole web page refreshed and I had to scroll down to the calendar and advance to the next month. After the fourth time doing that, it starts to get pretty annoying.
Trying to save my work, as the pop-up keeps reminding me, but can’t cuz I don’t have every field on page filled-in. Brilliant. #CMEgrant
This made me laugh. There are constant reminders to save your work because of the time-out limit, but when I actually tried to save my work, I got big red error messages because I didn’t have every field completed. Some sites have a “Save and Return” option, which lets you save your work without advancing to the next page. Obviously, this one didn’t.
And for some unexplained reason, when I hit the “next” button, I was redirected to the login screen w/ only half work saved. Grrr #CMEgrant
After I tried saving without all the fields filled out and got the error messages, I filled out the empty fields and clicked “next”. That’s when the above happened. So much for saving my work. I was…not happy.
Success! Was able to click on the “next” button without getting logged-out! #smallthings #CMEgrant
I suppose there’s a reason some of these sites ask for things like the agenda to be Cut & Pasted into a memo field rather than included as an attachment. I would think it’s much easier for them to read an attachment, but what do I know?
Have now been asked twice, in completely separate areas, to paste agenda into memo field. Efficiency at its finest #CMEgrant
This happens a lot. On this site, they listed both “ACCME” and “AMA” under their categories of credit, which is fairly common. I selected both of them because one time (with a different grantor) I only selected “AMA” and received an e-mail telling me I needed to go back in and also select “ACCME”. Whatever.
Every time I click “next” button, get pop-up reminding me system will time-out in 21/2 hours. Have to click a 2nd time to advance #CMEgrant
Some sites will let you upload your own formatted budget. I love those sites. Some (most?) make you fill out their own online template. This is probably the most time consuming part of the grant submission process.
Had to pause to let the dog out. Doesn’t he realize I only have 21/2 hours to complete this submission??? #CMEgrant
