Today, DI PRO introduces a new search tool that enables you to easily view, search and sort Initial Evaluation scores from a single page.

The tool, available here, is designed for users who desire a little more granular data on IE results than currently displayed on the New gTLD Application Tracker.

Users can see financial, technical and total evaluation scores for each application that has been processed through IE (currently 244 applications) in the same sortable table.

Results can be filtered by string, applicant and back-end registry services provider.

New scores will be added every Friday night (or Saturday morning, depending on the timing of ICANN’s results publication) until Initial Evaluation ends.

UPDATE MAY 14: The tool now also lists the date the results were published, enabling users to see which applicants are failing to immediately pass according to their prioritization number.
