Yes, Kuali Research uses the asterisk as the wild card character. More search and navigation tips can be found here:
A UMD investigator must certify each proposal he/she is named on before that proposal can be submitted for routing in Kuali Research. In those instances where the investigator is not the proposal creator, the proposal creator will send a notification from Kuali Research to the investigator. This notification will contain a link to the certification page for that investigator for that proposal.
Proposal Development proposals are approved at the Lead Unit, the Lead College, and ORA. At each approval stop, a primary and alternate approver(s) have been identified. Only one approval is needed at any stop to move the proposal to the next stop.
Access to the Proposal Development module is limited based on roles within a unit or on a proposal, unlike the rest of Kuali Research. Proposal Creators have access to records he/she created and have the ability to add other viewers to that record. Investigators have view access to their Kuali Research proposals by default. Proposal Approvers have view access to those proposals which he/she needs to approve. Departments and Colleges can contact the KR Help Desk to make changes to the list of Proposal Aggregators and Proposal Viewers for a unit. Aggregators work with many investigators in a unit(s) to create proposals and Viewers have only view rights to all proposals within a unit/college.
