The Additional Forms feature is available by request for a fee. If you're interested in using Additional Forms, please contact our account management team.

Additional Forms allow Level 4 and 5 team members to send requests for more information after submitters have completed an initial application. Additional Forms will be automatically tied to an Initial Form submission. For example, grant organizations can use Additional Forms to request progress reports from their grantees. Or, in a multi-stage application process, organizations can send Additional Forms to applicants who have gone through an initial review stage to gather the next set of required information.

To send your Additional Form to submitters:

1. In your Submissions list, select submissions. Then, click the Additional Forms button (shown below) at the top of the Submissions list.

2. In the Additional Forms dialog box, select the template you'd like to use. Select a Response Template or type a custom message.

Note: You can also send Additional Forms within the Submission Details page of a specific submission. On the Submissions Details page, select More > Send Additional Form. The Additional Form will only go to the submitter who sent that specific submission.

3. The submitter(s) will receive an email containing a link to your form. After they fill out and submit the form, you will receive an email notifying you that the form has been completed. You can see the form data when you click on their submission and expand the Additional Form located at the top of their Submission Details page.

4. You can also check the status of an additional form by locating the submission associated with it in the Submissions List. A submission to which an additional form was sent will have an Additional Form icon located to the far right of the submission.

Click the icon to see what additional forms were requested for this submission, and whether the submitter has submitted the form.
