A common question asked on a grant application form is one related to the project or program budget. GLM does not currently support building a table-format question, but there are two main options we recommend for collecting this data. 

  • The first option is to create a file upload question.

    • This option fits if you do not want to require applicants to submit their budget according to a specific template. 

  • The second option is to create a file upload question, and link out to a budget template within the instructions. 

    • The template needs to first be hosted online (i.e. your organization’s website, Google Drive, etc.).

    • Then you can insert the link within the instructions of the question.

    • Now applicants can download your template, fill it out, and upload it within the form.
