Organization Summary Tutorial

This tutorial will explain how Organizations, Users, and Requests work together to create an Organization Summary record in the system.

GLM keeps a record of all Organizations, Applicants and Requests entered into the system. We like to think of your site as a big file cabinet that holds all the records that are entered into it. Each organization is a drawer in that cabinet and each request for funding is like a file in the drawer.

The Organization Summary page holds all of the information about that organization including it's contact information, contacts and request history as well as the information in the list below. The sections on the organization summary page are:

Organization Contacts and Request Owners

An organization can have multiple contacts attached to it. One contact can be marked as the Primary Contact. Any contact that has created an account will be attached to the organization as an Applicant/Organization Contact. Applicants who have started and/or submitted a request are Request Owners.

Organization Primary Contact - This contact will be listed as the primary in print packets and will receive mail merge documents when the administrator selects the Organization Primary Contact as the recipient for those documents.

Request OwnerThis contact will receive any automated email sent in regards to the request. This is the only contact who has the ability to edit forms assigned to this request, except follow ups. Follow Up forms can be assigned to any contact within an organization.

Applicant/Organization Contact – This contact can be sent email from GLM. They can also be assigned to complete follow up forms for requests owned by other contacts. If the View Organization History feature is turned on, this contact will also have access to this tool.
