Create the Individual Child Applications
After you have cleaned up the Common Application you will begin cloning the Common Application to create each one of your separate fund’s child applications.
Make sure when cloning that you adjust the General Information to apply to each separate fund’s application as those fund applications may have deadline dates that are earlier than the Common Application’s deadline.
Since the Common Application contains all XML from the Master Template, (and you did not change any of those names), when you clone the Common Application, the XML names will be copied into all child applications, exactly as they exist in the Master Template.
In each of the child applications, remove any items that were cloned from the Common Application that are not required for that fund’s application.
At this point, in the child application, if you have additional items that the applicant must complete in the child application only, add those to the application now.
In the Manage Application Funds Funding list, confirm that you have a fund created for each separate fund that is part of the common application process. If the fund is not available you will need to set it up (Manage Application Funds > Setup Funding). Make sure that each fund is set to Yes for the Published (Viewable to the Applicant) setting.
In the Associated Application for each separate fund, select the child application you created for that fund. Repeat for each fund.
Create a posting fund for the actual Common application to which the applicants will be applying (Manage Application Funds > Setup Funding). For the Associated Application select the Common Application form. Make sure that this fund is set to Yes for the Published (Viewable to the Applicant) setting.
