Creating an Application Template

Getting Started

Before you can create an Application Template, you need to create two forms: 

  • A form to use for the application.
  • A form to serve as an application review form (for assessors).

You can create these two forms by clicking on Administration on the main navigation menu and going to Form Builder.

Once you create those two forms, you can proceed to begin creating your Application Template: 

  1. Click on Applications on the main navigation menu.
  2. Click on Application Template Builder in the secondary menu.
  3. Click on the Create New Application Template button.

Note: At any time while building your template, you can click on the gray Save button to save your changes and close the template builder. You will be able to return to finish later.

Step 1: Basic Information

  1. Enter basic information about your Application Template, including Title and Description.
  2. Enter the Open Date Range for the application.
