We know that both creating and filling out an application form can be intimidating, but Submit.com makes it easy for you and the applicant.
We’re going to talk about some of the ways you can collect more information from your applicants using phase submissions in the Submit.com platform. We make it easy to keep everything together under the one applicant and all in the one system.
Filling out a long form can be time-consuming and off-putting for an applicant. Often it may be better to break up your application form into multiple phases so that you can move an applicant along and eliminate ineligible applicants along the way. Phased applications can make it easier for your team to make decisions and screen applicants more efficiently. Multiple phases also allow the applicant to send the most relevant info at each stage of the application.
Progress reports for grant applications
You can request updates on budgets and finances and project reports and outcomes for beneficiaries. Updates are particularly helpful for business grant management. By adding additional phases to your application, you can keep all of their original data collected and the new information in the same place.
If you’re accepting applications for a paid event, you can increase the likelihood your applicant will complete their registration by collecting necessary information first. In this example, you can confirm that the payment successfully processed before you request more required information. You can then use the second phase after payment is approved for additional information, questionnaires, medical information, surveys and much more.
Conduct a survey
You can create an additional phase for your applicant to complete a survey or to give feedback and keep it stored with the rest of that applicant’s information.
Request a video interview
Because of the hundreds of thousands of applications that go through Submit.com annually We have learned that a video interview question in the first part of the application can be off-putting for an applicant and they may leave their application in drafts. Having a video interview as your second phase may increase the likelihood an applicant will complete their form. It may also increase the probability that an applicant would complete the video interview as they would feel like they are progressing through the application process.
