On the Forms Editor, first link the form to its Campus and Programme.
Next, select the Type:
Lastly, set your form layout preference and notification options
On the left menu, you will find a selection of fields, which will allow you to customize your application form. You can drag and drop them onto your form and easily re-order their sequence.
Double-click on a field to edit the information. Most field settings will allow you to indicate if the field is required, is for office-use only, or to set a default response. A Conditional Field rule can also be added, to make this field dependent on another field.
Certain default fields in the system are labelled as global fields (e.g. First Name, Language, etc.). They are used in the structure of the system and can only be customised in terms of field label and instructions.
Fields in OpenApply that appear on multiple forms will sync data between the forms. It is always recommended to reuse fields when the same data is required on multiple forms so that applicants only have to fill in fields once. For example if the Nationality field is completed on one form, it will be pre-filled in on the next form. Any update to the nationality field on one form, would then update the data on all forms for that applicant or parent.
If you have two similar forms, then it may be easier for you to clone an existing form rather than create a whole new one. Locate the form you want to clone at Settings, Forms. Hover over the form and click on the Clone Form button. A new copy of the form will appear. Click on it to edit.
