Proposal Management: Post a Comment (Award)


The Post a Comment activity allows the PI & Project Team to email messages and attach documents about an Award, Award Change Request, or an Award Modification. Posting a comment is a communication tool only, and will not update, make changes to, or submit your request. Documents added with Post a Comment will not display on the AWD Docs tab on the Award, Change Request, or Modification workspaces; they will only display on the Activity Log tab.

Comments and attached documents are:

  • Permanently posted to the Award workspace.
  • Visible to anyone who can view the Award.
