Instrumentl is your single source of truth for grant tracking. We have added additional status selections so your grant tracking can be more precise.
The new status selections are as follows: LOI In Progress, LOI Submitted, Application In Progress, Application Submitted, and Closed.
LOI In Progress v Application In Progress
One change made to the statuses was separating ‘In Progress’ into two separate statuses. Those statuses are now ‘LOI In Progress’ and ‘Application In Progress’. We did this so you can be clear on which stage of the application process you are currently in.
Any opportunities previously labeled ‘In Progress’ before these new statuses were added have automatically been updated to “Application In Progress”.
If an opportunity labeled as ‘In Progress’ was actually describing an LOI as being in progress, you can manually change the status to ‘LOI In Progress’ directly in your Tracker.
LOI Submitted vs Application Submitted
Another change made to statuses was separating ‘Submitted’ into two separate statuses, those being ‘LOI Submitted’ and ‘Application Submitted’.
We did this so you can be clear on which stage of the application process has been submitted.
Any opportunities that were labeled ‘Submitted’ before these new statuses were added have automatically been updated to “Application Submitted”.
If an opportunity labeled as ‘Submitted’ was actually describing an LOI being submitted, you can manually change the status to ‘LOI Submitted’ directly in your Tracker.
The new status ‘Closed’ is intended to represent any funding opportunities that have been awarded, but are no longer actively being managed.
‘Award period’ selection
When opportunities are labeled as ‘Awarded’ on Instrumentl, you now have the option to select an award period start and end date.
This is an optional field intended to make the awarded stage of a grant better organized on Instrumentl.
