Add Member(s) Task

Chris Quiroz -

The "Add Member(s)" task allows a user to add co-applicant(s) to their submission. Co-applicants can be made owners, standard members, or read-only members of the submission. This is useful for submissions requiring collaboration and multi-user access without those users needing to share a profile for access. 

After adding the task the respective settings can be modified to best suit the task's purpose for inclusion in the workflow. 

Basic Information Tab

The Basic Information tab provides a quick overview of the elementary descriptions (Title and Description) associated with the task and can be formatted using the Visual Editor. 

Name: The name of the task - how it will appear in the Competition Design page, and referred to in every other instance within your site. 

Set a description: This description is shown to applicants who fill out this form. Specifying a description is optional. When checked, the Visual Editor is displayed, which allows the content to be formatted accordingly.


Stage & Group Tab 

The Stage & Group tab allows the administrator to select which stage the task will be in, as well as the group the task should be applicable to.

Stage: The specific stage the task should be affiliated with can be selected from this drop down menu. 

Group: The group this task should be assigned to can be selected from this drop-down menu.
