Completing Your Application Online:

Video and Transcription

Slide 1 – Introduction

Hello! My name’s Gemma, and I’m a member of the Equality and Human Rights Fund team here at Inspiring Scotland. This video will provide some technical guidance for completing the online form. Please complete the form in Word first, then copy and paste your answers into the online form. A Word version of the form will have been sent to you when you registered your interest. You can also download it from the Equality and Human Rights Fund pages of our website.

We strongly recommend using a laptop or desktop computer, rather than a mobile device, like a phone or a tablet, when completing the form, as some sections such as file attachments may not display properly. Do not use Internet Explorer to open the form. All other browsers, such as Edge, Chrome, Firefox and Opera, will all work fine.


Slide 2 – Navigating the form

If you need to move back or forwards between pages on the form, you should use the “previous page” and “next page” buttons, as shown, at the bottom of each page. Do not use the back button on your browser, as you risk losing any unsaved work.

The majority of questions on the application are marked as mandatory, to avoid you missing questions. All mandatory questions are marked with an asterisk after them. If you miss a mandatory question by accident, the form will flag this to you when you hit the submit button at the end.


Slide 3 – Saving your progress

You can save your progress at any point by clicking on the “save my progress and resume later” box, as shown in the first image. As you are clicking this, you will be asked to provide an email address and create a password, as shown on the second image. It is really important to keep a note of these, as you will need them to get back into your form. Please don’t change the email address and password you originally used – keep the details the same throughout the process.

To return to a saved form, click on the “resume a previously saved form” button and then enter the email address and password you created.

Some questions require a response in numbers only.


Slide 4 – Completing the form

If you have 10 board members, for example, type “10” in digits, rather than the word. You only need to provide the number and no further explanation to this. Anything other than a number will result in an error being shown, and you will have to go back and fix it. When entering numbers, you don’t need to add commas, and you don’t need to add the pound symbol. For questions where you are being asked for financial figures, as shown in the second image, you can enter two decimal places.


Slide 5 – Adding further responses

For some questions, you might want or need to add more than one response. After completing all the fields for the first response, you can then click “add another”. This will open up another section with the same fields repeated for you to add. This works the same for all although the wording might be different.


Slide 6 – Uploading documents

The final section of the form requires you to upload several documents. To do this, click on “browse” on a field, and locate the documents or files from wherever it’s saved, and double click it. The form will attach to your document. You will know its done because your file will appear there. In the example, a document called “test” has been added.

Finally, press submit. You’ll then have a final chance to view your response, read through and check everything, and then either click “submit”, or click “make a correction”, and you can go back and make changes. You will receive an email confirming receipt of your form at the email address provided in question 1.3. This email will also provide a text copy of your answer.


Slide 7 – Conclusion

If you do not receive this email, or if you have any other issues with the form, you can request support from us by emailing Thanks for watching.
