Greetings Cayuse User Community,

Cayuse is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Cayuse 424 version 8.3 on Tuesday, June 19th. Cayuse 424 v8.3 contains some truly exciting enhancements! Read on for details. 

When: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 from 5:30PM to 9:30PM Pacific (8:30PM – 12:30AM ET)

What’s New in Version 8.3:

  • Several enhancements were made to prompt or require the upload of PDFs vs other file types based on Validation Type (Sponsor), system preferences, and user role. 
  • Senior/Key Person Profile forms now display Role in the collapsed/summary view, sorting can be applied to the budget, and sorting for Subaward Senior/Key Personnel has been refined.
  • Printing a PHS HSCTI Study Record to PDF within Cayuse now displays carriage returns and tabs as they were entered in the form to match changes that were recently made by NIH. 
  • Validations have been enhanced to suppress errors that don’t impact submission for a subrecipient’s Senior/Key Person Profile and to encourage checking of the “Include in Prime” checkbox when key information is present.

…and much more!

See the release notes for a comprehensive list of changes HERE.
