Question Type - Application Link
Home > (Select - Application Name) > Application Settings > Sections and Questions > (Select - Section Name) > Select - Add Question
Create a question that allows the applicant to click a link that directs them to another application to which they can apply. The application to which they are linking must have a future begin date in order to display in the listing of available applications. Two additional fields will display once you select Application Link as the question Type.
Selected Funding: Click on the dropdown arrow to view a listing of available applications. Select the application to which you want the applicant to be directed.
Use Link To: Select the option you want to display when the applicant clicks the link.
Link - The applicant clicks on the link and a pop up displays giving the applicant the option to apply to the application. If they click the Apply button, they are then directed to the dashboard for the new application.
Apply - The applicant clicks on the link and is automatically directed to the dashboard for the new application. No option to apply is available as it is automatic.
Apply and Import - The applicant clicks on the link and is automatically directed to the dashboard for the new application. Any questions included in the original application that carry the same XML name that are present in the second linked application will automatically be pushed down and populated with the replies in the initial application. The applicant will not be required to re-answer those questions.
Once you have selected the application and the option to link to the application, the link will display in the question for the applicant to click.
Best Practice Tip: Since this is more likely a question that you want to display after the initial application process, it is recommended that you create this question in a separate section. Create that section with a Section Type of Acceptance and a Status of Selected for Award. This will enable you to control which applicants receive this section in their dashboard. Only applicants that you have moved to the status of Selected for Award will see this section in their dashboard and be able to click on it. Set the deadline as either the deadline of the new application or with no deadline. Mark the Lock After Submit field as No for this section.
An example of how the link displays to applicants is shown below.
