From within an open application, hover your mouse over the Cycle Details tab. If the application is already in a Cycle, a fly-out menu will appear showing the Cycle number and all items within the Cycle. If there is no cycle, click on the tab to open the Create Cycle window.

The following table describes the columns on the Cycle Tasklist and the type of information included in each column. The columns are listed in alphabetical order.

You can personalize your tasklist to display only the information you’re interested in tracking. For example, you can define the columns that display and the order of the columns, among other things.

A Cycle is an electronic file that contains all the items relating to a specific Sponsored Project during a specific competing segment. Cycles are a convenient mechanism for tracking the progression of a competing segment and the relationship of the items created within that segment.

Figure 1 provides one example of a Cycle’s contents. There is a large circle to represent the cycle, with two smaller circles enclosed, each representing an application. Within the application circles are smaller circles representing associated funding actions and administrative actions.

Cycle Relationships

You can relate one cycle to another. You might relate Cycles, for example, when a project has multiple competing segments and you want to associate competing renewal applications with the original application.
