I am in this situation. Reviewing those proposals is a pain, because there are large paragraphs of text, and spreadsheets are a terrible way to read them. I did the typical software engineer thing: I spent an hour writing a tool to make reading them easier.
The result is csv_review.py. It’s a terminal program that reads a CSV file (the exported proposals). It displays a row at a time on the screen, wrapping text as needed. It has commands for moving around the rows. It collects comments into a second CSV file. That’s it.
There are probably already better ways to do this. Everyone knows that to get answers from the internet, you don’t ask questions, instead you present wrong answers. More people will correct you than will help you. So this tool is my wrong answer to how to review CFP proposals. Correct me!
