To learn more about how Grantable Snippets works and how to use it, keep reading!

1. What is a Snippet and how do I create one?

A Snippet is a container for any piece of information a grant writer wishes to store and easily find for future use. In addition to the information, itself, Snippets should be given a name or label that is memorable and describes the contents of the Snippet.

Creating a Snippet is easy. You can navigate to your Snippets from your Dashboard to create, edit, and delete them.

2. How can I use Snippets to improve my grant writing process?

Snippets come in handy when grant proposals request information about an organization that does not change much over time, such as names, addresses, tax ID numbers, and mission statements.

Almost all grant proposals will require these kinds of static, usually identifying information about applicants, and by saving this information as Snippets, it becomes much easier to answer these repetitive questions quickly, and accurately.

It also allows any member of your team to help with the drafting of grant proposals.

3. Can I share Snippets with colleagues?

Yes, all Snippets are available to the members of your workspace, including freelance grant writers hired from the Grantable Marketplace. This makes it effortless for anyone on your team to answer these requirements without needing to ask for the information.

In conclusion

Snippets can be extremely helpful when it comes to streamlining your grant writing process. Not only are they a great way to store and organize your information, but they can also make collaboration with colleagues easier than ever. By taking advantage of the power of Snippets, you can save time and energy while producing the best grants, as efficiently as possible. Have you tried using Snippets in your own work?
