This will open the Grants screen where all your grants will be listed. From the top, click the “Add New” button.



This will open the Grant Workspace screen...


There is a lot of information available for inputting a Grant. Let's take a look at each field and tab in the Grant Workspace:

1.   Record Permissions -  You can choose to lock the record by placing a checkmark in the "Lock This Record"  box. Choosing to lock this record prevents users from viewing or updating it, unless they're either a master admin or given specific permissions on the Record Permissions tab. Permissions also work by assigning a department, district and/or precinct. If you have users in your system who are restricted by these permissions, they will only be able to see records in the departments/districts/precincts you have granted them access to.
2.   Grant Title - You must enter a name for your grant. This is a required field.

If your grantor is brand new, you can still enter them here by selecting "Add New" on the Add A New Grantor by Designating a Constituent as A Grantor screen.
