How to Fill Out Required Fields on Proposals Using The Data Validation Tool

If the proposal was submitted to the sponsor, but the administrative record is incomplete, please complete the required fields on your proposal, and route the Kuali Record as soon as possible so we can submit it in the system and get it recorded.


To see which fields are required for you to complete, please click on the Data Validation button at the top of the toolbar, and then turn it on to scan your proposal for any missing information, conflicting answers, etc:
