Compared to last year, an increasing trend has been observed in publishing Result and Budget elements. Out of 283 organisations publishing their activities, 155 organisations (correctly) published their budget information and 121 organisations’ results were recorded.
Within the past six months, April and May witnessed a surge in support tickets (provided via Zendesk). A total of 24 and 40 users reached out in the months of April and May respectively. January had a relatively low support reach out compared to the rest of the months in 2022. Users were seen to be active in the month of May as a preparation to publish at the fiscal year end.
