Customizing the Pivot User Interface
- To upload a main logo, select Select Image (to replace an existing image, select Replace Image). See the on-screen text for image requirements. Large images are resized automatically. The image appears at the top of every page in the UI, as well as in your site's newsletters and funding alert emails.
- Select colors or enter six digit hexadecimal numbers (for example, #6d7984) for primary and secondary colors. The primary color is used in the navigation bar. The secondary color is used to highlight details, such as the Help link, the number of announcements, and limited submission opportunity tags. You can select, instead, that the primary color is used for limited submissions and other highlights.
Use Primary or Secondary Color Options
- As noted in the on-screen text, the default icon for the internal opportunities label uses your primary and secondary colors. If you prefer, you can upload a 16x16 pixel favicon for this image by selecting Select Image. Large images are resized automatically.
- Select X to restore the default logo, or select Reset to Default to restore the default colors. Otherwise, select Save Changes to publish the changes.
Configuring Institution Search Settings
On the Search Settings page (Admin > Institutional Settings > Search Settings), you can set the default selected locations and citizenship requirements for user searches. When users search for funding opportunities, the locations and citizenship requirements you select on this page are selected by default. The user can still change or clear these selections when they search.
To change either setting, select Edit, enter or select/clear the locations, and select Save.
Creating a Global Message and Site Announcements
Creating a Global Message
You add, edit, or delete a global note on the Global Message page (Admin > Institutional Settings > Global Message).
Announcements are seen by all users at your institution. They can be used to notify users about events or important information such as training or help.
You add, edit, or delete announcements on the Manage Announcements page (Admin > Institutional Settings > Announcements).
Announcements appear in a popup when a user selects Announcements in the Top Navigation area.
To delete an announcement, select Edit in the announcement's row, select Delete Announcement, and select Save.
Adding a Funding Opportunity Search Widget to Your Website
You can create a widget to add to your website. The widget displays a search field that your site visitors can use to search Pivot for funding opportunities. After they select Search in the widget, they are directed to a search results page on Pivot.
You create this widget on the Pivot Funding Opportunities Search Widget page (Admin > Tools > Widgets > Pivot Funding Search Widget).
Follow the on-screen text to customize the widget. A preview of the widget appears on the site. When you are finished customizing the widget, select Create Widget and copy the code that appears in the box to your website.
