Good Grants lets you create contracts which can be assigned to successful applications and signed by applicants.
Create a contract
To create a new contract template, follow these steps:
- Go to Settings > Content > Content blocks
- Click the New content block button
- Select Contract from the Content location drop-down
- Add your contract text to the Content field, employing Markdown formatting or merge fields if desired
- Click Save
Assign a contract to an application
When you're ready to assign a contract to a successful grant recipient go to Applications > Manage applications and click on the application you want to add the contract to.
In the manager's view of the application, scroll down to Contracts and click the Add Contract button. If you've created more than one contract template you can select from all available contracts.
How to sign a contract
Once the contract has been saved to the application, it will add a Sign contract button to the applicant's view at Applications > My applications.
The applicant can read and sign the contract by either drawing their name using their mouse or trackpad on the Draw tab or simply typing in their name using the Type tab as shown below.
A timestamp for when the contract is signed will appear in the user's profile page along with a link to a PDF of the contract.
