Part of your responsibility as a participant is to get your reporting done.
As you may know, initiatives are made with well-defined indicators, which admins can use to understand how effective the opportunities are.
That's the reason why you need to know how to report on initiatives.
Where do you report?
Opportunities are set up with well-defined indicators and your platform admins may have specifically connected your organisation profile to one or more initiatives.
Each initiative generates a specific report and helps the platform generate impact reports — all based on the data the portal collected.
To report, you need to get to the initiative's reporting page:
1. First off, access your portal and log in with your credentials.
Once you entered your username and password, click on the "Login" button.
2. The next step is to navigate to your organisation profile.
Once you're logged in, click on the "Organisations" link from the left-hand sidebar.
You must then search for your organisation and click on its name from the list.
3. Lastly, you need to find the initiative you want to report on.
Once you're on the organisation page, scroll through until you see the name of the opportunity you want to report on.
Then, click on the "Report now" button of that initiative.
Note that each organisation profile needs to be connected to an initiative, based on the data request from your organisation.
Some of these reporting requirements might be annual, some daily, or even monthly.
How to complete a Susurate report
On the next page, you will see the reporting form.
First off, make sure to set the right period you want to report on. Click on the dropdown and select the reporting period.
The next step is quite simple — enter the number that corresponds to the indicator.
On the right side, you will see a target number. However, make sure to enter the actual figure.
In the event you have nothing to report, click on the "Nothing to report" button.
Feel free to leave a comment or note too if you have something you want to say.
Once you're done reporting, click on the "Submit report" button on the bottom.
That's it. Once you submit the report, the data will be added to the database of that initiative and would help the administrators understand the status of the opportunity.
