Funding Management Portal Training – Adding and Editing Funds
BeginnersNew

Mon 12 Jul 2021

Description

This instructor-led session will introduce you to the new Cambridge University Funding Management Portal and teach you to add and edit your funds so that they can be published on the new Funding Search.

You will be given a demo of the new system, followed by an instructor-supported opportunity to enter a fund for yourself on a training test site. The objective of this introductory session is to give fund administrators training on the new system so that they can add and update their own funds over the summer, before the new Funding Search is published for applicants in September.

You must have the following items installed or available on your computer to participate.

1. The Teams desktop app installed on your computer.

2. You will also need a working webcam, speakers (or headset) and mic.

Note: You need to be connected to the Cambridge University network to access the training test site or the actual Funding Management Portal. If you are working in the office and connected directly to the Cambridge University, you should be able to automatically connect. If you are working from a remote location (including from home), you will need to connect via the UIS VPN service. For details on how to do this please visit their information website: https://help.uis.cam.ac.uk/service/network-services/remote-access/uis-vpn.
