What is a custom deadline?
A custom deadline is a specific deadline assigned to a single application. This deadline can be set for an application in just a few clicks from the manager's view of an application.
Should I use custom deadlines?
This feature is helpful for programs that wish to give select applicants additional time to complete their applications after an application round has finished. When inviting applicants to complete an application, a custom deadline can be assigned, even if the form's round has passed. For information on invite-only applications, see our guide: Invitation-only applications.
