How can I edit a submission I have submitted?

For information on editing re-submitting an already submitted submission, check out this article: Editing a Submission.

How do I invite people to collaborate with me on a submission?

Submittable allows organizations to give applicants the option to invite others to collaborate on a form with them.

If an organization allows this, you will see an option to Manage Collaborators at the top right of the application. Clicking ‘manage collaborators’ will trigger a dialog box to appear, asking you to enter the email addresses of your collaborators. Enter those addresses, then click Invite.

Invited collaborators will receive an email letting them know you’ve invited them to collaborate on an in-progress submission using Submittable. If they do not have a Submittable account they will be prompted to create one. Collaborators can edit the form but they cannot submit the form, only the main applicant can submit the form.

For additional information about the collaboration feature, check out this article: Inviting Collaborators

If your collaborator needs assistance accessing the application, have them check out this article: Request to Collaborate.

Where can I find my additional forms?

Once you have submitted to an organization, they may send you additional forms to complete.

These might be for progress reports, requests for payment information, final reports, and other requests to add information to your initial submission.

You can locate the form using the email notification sent to you by clicking the ‘view form’ button at the bottom of your email.

You can also access the additional form directly from your account. Check out this article for more information: Where is my additional form?

How can I withdraw my submission?

Submitters can withdraw an application they’ve submitted at any time.

To withdraw an active submission, follow the steps found here: Withdrawing a Submission.

How do I get technical assistance?

If you need technical assistance, Submittable’s Technical Support team is available and will respond to inquiries Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. MDT. You can reach them here: Technical Assistance for Submitters.
