If you're just getting started with DevResults, we have several articles on Site Setup to help you.
This covers how we work, how we create your site, how we conduct trainings, etc.
Once your site is set up, you can begin configuring it. Site configuration in DevResults requires defining four characteristics which will be associated with all data you enter:
We go into this in-depth in our article on Data Structures to help you understand how these pieces of information are critical to configuring your DevResults site.
The Activity is at the central organizing feature of DevResults, and each Activity is associated with who, what, when, and where. An activity might be an award, grant, sub-partner, internal team, or any entity responsible for producing indicator results. An activity is a combination of the organization managing the work, the list of indicators to be reported, the places where indicators are reported, and the reporting periods when indicators are reported.
As you set up each activity, you'll notice that it brings together each of the necessary elements needed to enter data into DevResults.
Note: This page is currently only available to users who belong to permissions groups with the Activity enabled with View and Edit access.
Who does the work
All activities have a primary managing organization. If NGO 1 wins an award to implement Project X, then Project X is the activity and NGO 1 is its organization. Users are also assigned to an organization.
Learn how to add Organizations.
Note: Anyone who needs to access DevResults must be a user in the site identified by their email. Users can be granted different permissions based on user groups.
Learn more about how to add, delete, and configure Users and Profiles.
What is the work
Your results framework is a hierarchy of your objectives. Your indicators measure progress toward those objectives.

When does the work happen
Every piece of data reported in DevResults must be associated with a particular date or reporting period. Reporting periods fall in specific reporting cycles (annual, quarterly, monthly, etc.)
Learn how to manage Reporting Periods, Reporting Cycles, and Fiscal Years.
