If an application is eligible to be submitted and the user looking at the application is qualified to submit it, the Submit button will be near the top of the application, just above the application content tabs, on the righthand side:
If there is no visible ‘Submit’ button in an application, that is indicative of one of several things:
The user is a collaborator on the application.
As an applicant, if you log into your account and are taken to an Invitations page (http://ZoomGrants.com/invitations.asp), or you see a red ‘Invited as a Collaborator’ message next to the application on your My Account Home page, you are a collaborator on the application.
Collaborators can only contribute to the content of the application, whereas the official applicant owns the application. Collaborators cannot submit, archive, or delete an application, nor can they edit the Applicant and Organization Information sections in the first tab of the application. To submit the application, contact the application owner and ask them to go into the application on their end. They will be able to submit it from their account.
The application has already been submitted.
In some cases, the administrator may choose to allow applicants to edit applications after they are submitted. In that case, applicants can submit an application then they and any invited collaborators can continue to make changes to it up until the deadline. There is no re-submit button. Once an application is submitted, the ‘Submit’ button will permanently disappear.
As soon as the edits are saved (when the ‘Saving’ screen flashes then disappears on its own), the version that is viewable to the committee members and administrators is automatically updated with the latest changes. To “submit” the changes, they only need to be saved.
(NOTE: The program administrator decides whether or not to allow changes to be made to submitted applications up until the deadline. If you’re an applicant please check in with the program admin (not ZoomGrants staff) to ask if they have chosen to allow edits to submitted application.)
The deadline has passed.
If you are the application owner (not a collaborator) and you have not already submitted the application, it is possible that the program deadline has already passed. The program admin can control the program deadline manually, so they decide when the program closes. As soon as they close the program, any incomplete applications can no longer be submitted. To submit the application, you will need to contact the program admin (not ZoomGrants staff) to request permission for a late submission.
(NOTE: If you have technical difficulty submitting the application, it is critical that you contact the ZoomGrants Support Team as soon as possible. We can help you but we may need time to address your issue. We strongly recommend never waiting until the last minute to submit your application, as there could be questions that you accidentally skipped, documents that you forgot to upload, or local connectivity issues such as a faulty internet connection in your home or office that prevent you from being able to submit, just as there could be printer problems, traffic jams, and inclement weather that prevent submission of a paper application. Please do your work early and submit well in advance of the deadline.)
If you don’t think any of the above situations apply to you and you are still unable to see a ‘Submit’ button, contact our Support Team for additional assistance. We’re happy to help!
