How can I search UAR for an investigator with both a primary and preferred name?

If you work with an investigator who has a preferred name in addition to their primary legal name, and who may have had proposals, awards, negotiations or subawards under both names, use the vertical line ‘or’ operator, “|”, in lookup screens accessed via Common Tasks in the UAR left hand navigation pane. This will allow a search for all names the person might have used in past records.

Why don't late night proposal approvals update the UAR dashboard?

There is an overnight process that runs behind the scenes in UAccess Research (UAR) to make sure dashboard cards like “Proposals not routing,” “Proposals routing to me” and “Proposal Workload Assignments” are updated with the latest changes. This process usually begins a little after midnight AZ time. Proposals approved after midnight may not be reflected in the UAR dashboard cards that day, they will update with the next overnight update.
