Announcement: eRA has announced a new way of selecting components for multi-project awards for the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR), coming Thursday, September 3, 2020.
Ability to Select Awarded Components for Multi-Projects
In RPPR, awarded components for multi-project grants will automatically show up on the RPPR Menu screen, reducing the burden on the grantee of individually adding these components. The list of components displayed will be from the last competitive application that was awarded.
Add a New Component (Existing Functionality)
A grantee can also continue to use the existing feature of adding a new component. Add the name of the component in the New Component Project Title field, and then from the drop-down menu, select the component type. Once the new component is added, you can select the edit option from the ellipsis icon and complete the RPPR sections A through H as required.
New Three Dot Menu for Actions
Previously, action options were represented by hyperlinked text in the Action column. This has been replaced by an ellipsis (a three-dot icon). Hover the cursor over the ellipsis and select from the menu options that appear. (See below).
You can find more information about the RPPR for multi-project awards in the Accessing a Multi-Project or Single-Project with Complicated Structure RPPR for Editing topic in the RPPR online help.
