Show Application Status in Days

When a request has been submitted and is under consideration, the applicant will see the decision status of Undecided on their dashboard. 

Once a request has been approved or denied, the applicable decision status will appear on the applicant’s dashboard after the preset delay time period has passed after the decision date. 

  • For example: If the decision status is set to a 15 day delay, an award approved on May 15 will appear as Undecided until May 30, at which time the decision status will update to Approved.
  • If the award is denied, the status of Denied will appear and the request will move to the Historic Requests tab after the delay time period has passed.

By default, the delay is set to 365 days. Follow these steps to change the delay: 

  1. Click the Gear Icon
  2. Click the Pencil Icon next to the Show Application Status in Days setting. 
  3. Edit the number of days and click OK.

Enable Details Link on Applicant Dashboard 

You also have the option to show the Amount Awarded and installment information to applicants on their dashboard for any approved requests. When enabled, the applicant will see a View Details link next to the approved request (once the delay period has passed from the decision date), which leads them to the installment and payment information. 

Follow these steps to enable or disable this setting: 

  1. Click the Gear Icon.
  2. Click the Pencil Icon next to the Enables Details link on Applicant Dashboard setting.
  3. Select True or False and click OK.
