Response templates give you the ability to customize the responses that your applicants receive at various points in the review process, such as when their application is received, and when it has been accepted, declined, or completed.

In the top navigation bar, click More, select Configurations. Then, on the left hand side of the page, select Response Templates.

Submittable provides by default a generic response template for when a submission is first received, as well as accepted or declined. You can edit these default templates by selecting Edit on the right.

Or create a new template be selecting Create a response template. Response templates are a flexible and highly customizable tool, and you can create templates that correspond to the exact needs of your process, such as requesting a reference or progress report.

Double-click the placeholder tags provided at the bottom to pull personalized data into your template.

Click Save when you're done.
