We’re starting 2022 with updates to the DMPTool website designed to make using the site easier and more efficient.
Improved authentication process. We’ve streamlined the authentication process. A user enters their email address, and the system will automatically direct them to the next step. This new process avoids some complexity in the process, which is due to the fact that about half of our users use SSO for authentication and the other half manage their credentials.
New Public Plans page search functionality Discovering sample DMPs just got a lot easier. The new public plans listing includes faceted search functionality to narrow results by Funder, Institution, language, and Subject. Additionally, DMPTool Administrators can now flag a plan as “Featured.” Featured plans are automatically displayed at the top of the page and provide a simple way to highlight exemplars.
If you have plans in your organizational account that you think would be useful to the community, please consider requesting that the plan owner make them public and then flagging them as “Featured.” We hope to build a listing of exemplar DMPs to help showcase best practices and serve as educational aids for those writing their first plans. Of course, we’ll need your help to do this, so I’m hoping we can build on this together as a community by flagging exemplars as “Featured.”
Navigation updates Admins will notice a change to the administrative functions drop-down list. Administrative functions are now located in the top right-hand of the page.
Please see our detailed Release Notes for a complete list of all the changes and new features.
