Pseudonyms for DevResults elements and concepts

Because DevResults is used in a variety of contexts and settings, we try to use generic terminology whenever possible. For instance, we decided to refer to activities as 'activities' rather than grants, awards, projects, programs, etc. mostly because that's how the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) refers to them.

We recently introduced the ability to rename or use pseudonyms to change these generic terms to better fit your organization's preferred terminology.

Currently, we support renaming for the following concepts:

  • Activities
  • Locations
  • Awarding organizations

If you would like to request support for a new pseudonym, or to implement one of the pseudonyms above, please contact

Note: pseudonyms will only apply on your site, not on the Knowledge Base, Helpdesk, Release Notes, or webinars.
