This page explains the basic functionalities and common elements for all application forms.
After you click Apply for the desired opportunity the application form is displayed. The following elements are available:
The header in the work area of the application forms displays basic information about your form. By default, it only shows key details. Click on the arrow to expand and view further information.
Information displayed in the header:
To access a specific (main) section, use the Content menu.
An additional Navigation tree panel is displayed in sections that contain subsections. Use the + icon to further expand the current selection or alternatively use the Expand All button to display all subsections at once.
The navigation panel allows you to easily access a specific subsection. It is possible to scroll independently through the content menu, the work area as a whole, and the available panels of the work area.
The navigation tree also shows which subsections are complete or incomplete.
It is possible to collapse both the Content menu and the Navigation tree, using the dedicated arrows (<), in order to expand the content area.
Mandatory fields are marked with a red asterisk. They must be filled in before you are able to submit the form.
If a section is marked with a red X it means that mandatory information is missing or not all rules have been observed, or that one or more subsections are incomplete.
If a section includes subsections (visible in navigation panel) these are also marked with a green check when all mandatory fields are filled in and all business rules are observed.
The form is automatically saved as you fill it in.
If you answer the questionnaire in any language other than English, you may be required to provide an English translation of your answer to certain fields.
In our example, the Consortium summary is required in both the foreign language and English for a KA130-HED application.
Click the ? icon next to the Application details to open the guidelines. Here you find information and links to help you complete the form. Click the Close button to close the guidelines.
Throughout the form it is possible to find more information about a particular section to be filled in by clicking on the relevant information icon in the Content menu. The relevant Section information window displays. Clicking on OK will close the window.
Once a section is completed, a green check is displayed instead of the information icon.
Some fields contain instructions (tooltips) which have been added to help you complete difficult sections in the form. Placing the mouse cursor on the field title opens the related tooltip.
You might find notifications in certain parts of your form. Your actions in the form may also trigger certain warning messages. Read those notifications and messages carefully and, in the case of warning messages, make the appropriate corrections.
Here are some examples:
Text fields may have a character limit. The maximum number of characters that can be used for a specific answer is indicated in the top right corner of the text box. It is not compulsory to use the maximum allowed number of characters. The character limit will count down automatically when you start filling information. If the maximum number of characters has been used, a red 0 is displayed. No more text can be added.
Dates in the application forms must follow the dd/mm/yyyy format. A date picker (calendar) is available for most date fields, offering dates of a certain range in case there are duration restrictions.
The default date in the date picker is today's date, unless otherwise specified.
The default currency used in the forms is the Euro unless otherwise specified. Currencies in the forms are displayed using the following formats: 1.300,00 / 23.140,05 / 1,20 / 0,50.
