✓ TIP: Before reporting Contacts in a Quarterly Effort record, you may want to create Program Activities and Direct Contacts records to report your work from the applicable quarter. In the Quarterly Effort record, you can auto-calculate contacts, based on the demographics reported in Program Activities and Direct Contacts.
NOTE: For more information or clarification on multi-state & integrated efforts, please contact an administrator within your organization.
GLOSSARY: Multi-state programming is any effort in which you worked with an agricultural experiment station, the Agricultural Research Service, or a college or university from another state to solve problems that concern more than one state.
GLOSSARY: Integrated programming is programming that is integrated with institutional research. It would include any research effort or partnership with the state’s Agricultural Research service, agricultural experiment stations within the state, or agricultural departments on campus. This may also include research work that seeks to develop and improve the welfare of consumers.
✓ TIP: The "percentage of effort..." entered must be a number between 0 and 100.
