We listened to you. We had feedback from many people in the research community - PI's, funders and university administrators alike. You wanted us to improve the user experience and suggested ways in which we could make the Researchfish platform easier to use. We agreed with you, so we changed it. Many focus groups, involving PI's from different institutions and with different experiences came together to help us build what you will be using from January 6th 2017. We think it's a lot better, a lot cleaner, simpler, more intuitive and makes the process of reporting easy.
Here are some of the key points of improvement that we think you might find useful:
In late 2015 we hired a user experience developer who helped us build a contemporary interface with a clean, user friendly layout allowing natural guidance and steps around the site.
The entire user experience has been rearchitected and designed with responsiveness in mind to provide accessible use across different devices.
On every page within the site you will find a guided tour to help you understand how the page works and what you need to do.
We've made it easier for you to understand and manage who has access to your awards, whether they are co-investigators, team members or delegates.
