How to review workplace submissions and other helpful ideas.

Create a submission form that is accessible from any device. With Submittable, the submission and review process is simple and elegant. In minutes, you can create a powerful mobile-friendly submission form, place a link or button to the form on your company website, and begin accepting submissions. The software allows you to establish a series of qualifying questions, and correlate all the proper data to the submission ahead of time. All you and your employees need is a browser to access and review the submissions.

Create team member accounts with appropriate permission levels. Our permission levels feature enables you to set higher permission levels for managers and administrators, so that only top-level team members can accept and decline applications, assign them to particular reviewers, and communicate with applicants. You can also set blind permission levels so that team members at certain permission levels cannot see identifying information about applicants, such as their names and email addresses.

Make decisions faster and smarter. By implementing the above and assigning permission levels to your team members, you can assign all incoming applications to lower-level team members for an initial review, so that higher-level team members only see valid, highly qualified applications. This helps streamline your decision-making process and make it more efficient.

Three tips for implementing an optimal employee workflow.


Build a robust, complete application form. Remember, the more you ask of the submitter at the initial point of submitting, the less you’ll need to ask later. If your submission form is for a corporate internship, ask for a resume and cover letter, and optionally use our reference letter feature to request reference letters.


Segment team members properly. An efficient way to curate content is to let lower-level team members initially review submissions first, and then have higher-level team members review the qualified remaining submissions. Use our permission levels feature to assign the appropriate review levels to each team member.


Optionally make submissions anonymous. Sometimes, when dealing with internal submissions, it’s smart to set up a blind review process.You have the option to make submissions anonymous to team members at or below your preferred blind-level settings. In order to gain the most insight, you’ll want to communicate to your team that their submission is completely anonymous and safe.

Make the most of your time by using Submittable’s submission form templates. Create your submission form in minutes by choosing a pre-created form template from our library. Choose from templates for employee applications, HR requests, expense reports, recruitment, and more. Submittable also gives you access to the submission tools you need to easily deploy and analyze your employee submissions, empowering you to make smarter decisions. And we take submission security and anonymity seriously, so rest assured knowing your data and insights are safe with us.
