Submittable Product Roundup: Q2 2020

For many of us, the global pandemic has changed the way we work and what we prioritize. At Submittable, we've seen a full doubling of the submission volume on our platform as hundreds of local and state governments, foundations, universities and other organizations have rushed to provide much needed funding to those who have been most impacted by COVID.

Our product development team, support team, and customers alike have responded quickly and creatively, and this quarter's roundup will be a panel discussion covering 360 degrees of handling the increased volume:

  • Our Head of Engineering Julie Loucks will provide her perspective of reshifting her team's focus to scalability and performance in the face of dramatically increased volume, as well as highlight enhancements introduced to the platform over the last quarter in light of these shifts.
  • Emily Freeman of our Customer Support team will share the many innovations her team has implemented to keep up with the correlating rise in queries from submitters, as well as how her team advises customers facing challenges associated with huge responses to their calls.
  • Account Manager Truxton Rolfe and Onboarding Specialist Diana Anyango will share insight as to what it's been like for our customers receiving tens of thousands of applications, including best practices and lessons learned.

As always, we'll also preview new features on the horizon and take your questions. Join us!
