Take note

The illustrations in the Application Forms wiki pages are for consultation purpose only and may not reflect the latest implementation.

There may be minor changes to the screen appearance and layout which are described on the updated page: How to complete the application form

You have the possibility to share an application with your colleagues or partners as long as the deadline for submission has not expired. Please note that any person accessing the form will need an EU Login account registered with the email address you entered. The application owner has the possibility to change the sharing permissions and rights at any time. 

If two persons want to edit the same application at the same time, the latter is informed that the page is currently being updated by another user, and can request the permission to edit the form. This will result in an email notification to the current editor. 


Share the form as owner of the form

As owner of the form there are two ways of accessing the Sharing screen. The owner of the form is the person who has initiated the application request. 

There are two ways to access the sharing screen:

Access the "Sharing" screen from "My applications"

In My Applications, click on the Actions button next to the application form you want to share and select the Sharing option.

Access Sharing from My Applications

Access the "Sharing" screen from within the application

From within the application, click Sharing in the Content menu.

Access sharing from Application form

Details of the Sharing screen

By default the sharing list is empty. Add colleagues/persons with whom you wish to share the application, by clicking on the buttons:

  • Share with a new person
  • Share with an associated person
  • Share from my contact list

The type of access/permission to the application form must be detailed for each person. The types of permissions are: 

  • Read - implies the person may view and read the application form
  • Write - implies the person may read and edit the application form
  • Submit - implies the person may read, edit and submit the application form. Only one additional person to the owner can have access to submit a form. 

In addition to these sharing permission, the permission must be activated and only one person at a time can edit a form. 

Each line item has a check box for activating the sharing permission and to give editing access.

This implies that no permission is given until the check box Activate is selected for that person. Even if their permissions is set to Write or Submit, they will not be able to edit the form until the additional check box Editable by is selected. Only one person can edit the form at a time. 

Important

Only one additional person to the owner of the form can be allowed to submit a form. If this additional person is active and editing the form, the owner can not submit the form. 

  • Therefore if you, as the owner of the application, have granted submit access to another person and you have handed over the form for editing to that person, you will no longer be able to submit the application yourself and will not be notified when the application is submitted by the other person.
  • If you have handed over the form to another person with submit access, you must request editing in case you wish to submit the form yourself. Alternatively, simply update the other person's permissions from the sharing screen.
  • If another person has already submitted the application, you will be able to reopen it and resubmit yourself, if required.

There are two action buttons, one for deleting the persons details as an option for sharing the application form and one for updating the persons sharing details.

Email sent to persons with whom the form is shared

An email is sent to a person with whom the application form is shared. This email indicates who has shared the application form, details of the application and gives a direct link to the form. 

On receipt of the email indicating that an application has been shared with you, please log in using the email address to which the notification was sent. Otherwise they will not be able to access the Application Form. In addition if not already done, you must register in EU Login

Please note that only one person can edit an application at one time. If a person is currently editing the form the other person is informed that the form is currently being updated by another user, and can request the editing rights for the form. This results in a notification being sent to the current editor.

Example of notification mail


Persons with whom the form is shared

Multiple persons may have edit rights to a form but only one person at a time can edit the form. When the application owner changes those rights an onscreen message is displayed to the persons affected if currently reading or editing the form. 

If the owner changes the editing rights from one person to another, while the person previously editing the form is still active in the form, an on screen notification will inform them of the change of permissions. The message indicates that the previous editor no longer has priority to edit the form. The person must click ok and the form is reloaded in read-only mode.

Likewise if a person is reading the form and their editing access is given, the same message is displayed to indicate that they have now been activated as the editor of the form. Upon confirming the message, the screen reloads and the form opens in edit mode.

Find applications shared with me


Permission given and permission activated

If read access has been given:

  • Selecting Preview from the menu button will enable the person to view and read all the information you provided in the application, however they cannot make any changes to it. 

If read/write access has been given and current editing rights active:

  • Selecting Edit from the menu button will enable the person to edit/complete the information in the application.
  • The person will not be able to submit the form, once all data has been completed.

If read/write/submit access has been given and current editing rights active:

  • Selecting Edit from the menu button will enable the user to edit/complete the information in the application.
  • The user will also be able to submit the form, once all data has been completed.

Important

  1. Only one user can submit the application at any given time even if multiple users have received submit access via the sharing rules. Therefore if you, as the owner of the application, have granted submit access to another user and you have handed over the form for editing to that user, you will no longer be able to submit the application yourself and will not be notified when the application is submitted by the other user. If you have handed over the form to another user with submit access, you must request editing (see below) in case you wish to submit the form yourself. However, you can gain the submit rights again simply by revoking the other user's submit rights from the sharing rule.
  2. Still, if another user has already submitted the application, you will be able to reopen it and resubmit yourself, if required.

"Request editing" for an application form

Important

A form can be handed over for editing between persons with write access only if both persons have the form open at the same time. Therefore if you plan to request editing a form, please contact the user currently working on it and agree on the most convenient time for both of you to request editing and perform the handover. 

If the form is read only as another person is editing it, you are notified by a message at the top of the screen. Use the request editing button

Notification that another person is editing page

The current editor will receive an email notification about your request. In addition, the current editor receives pop-up notification on their application form screen, but only if they have the form open at the same time you request the editing. The current editor can choose to hand over the form or keep editing it.

Notification that another user wish to edit page


Expected Outcome

  • The application form is accessible by another user after being shared by the owner.
