March 2022 Project Update

Tip of the Month

Agreements from the Grants Workspace

Did you know you can create an Agreement from a Grants workspace?  Just open the Grants workspace, click the “Create Agreement” activity, select the Agreement type, click OK. The newly created Agreement is displayed on the “Related Projects” tab of the Grants workspace. Click the Agreement link to be re-directed to the Agreement workspace to complete the Agreement process. The Grant and Agreement are automatically linked, and you can toggle between them using the links found on the “Related Projects” tab.


Did you attend training last year and would like a quick refresher? Are you new to using RAMP? Training is available upon request via Zoom. Just email RAMP support at RAMP-Grants@fsu.eduWe are dedicated to supporting your efforts to learn and use this robust new system! Individuals or teams are welcome.

RAMP Guidance and training materials are available at RAMP, then proceed to the appropriate module.
