Field Usability Issues

Creation of projects (research administrator)

"Create discrete categories for all variables, e.g., funding mechanism"

"Create search mechanism to go through hundreds of user names once the system is fully implemented"


Creation of new tasks (research administrator)

"When deleting a task, create clear messages warning users before action is taken"


Task completion (researcher)

"When researchers complete a task, an email is sent to them so that they can have a "proof" of having completed it."
