Heads-Up 2019

Submissions are now being accepted. Submissions close at 5:00PM 31 March 2020 (NZDT).

Before you begin please read this information - it will help make providing your information easier

1. Uploading Supporting Documents/Attachments

You will need to have saved on your computer, on a memory stick/pen drive, or similar, any documents/information you wish to attach in the form.  Files can be up to 25MB each; however try to keep files to a maximum of 5MB – as the larger the file, the longer the upload time.

2. How will you know when your form has been submitted to CTS?

When you submit your form, you will receive an automated confirmation email with a copy of your submitted form attached. This will be sent to the email you used to register.

If you do not receive a confirmation of submission email then you should presume that your form has NOT been submitted.

3. Navigating (Moving Through) The Form

On the right hand side of every screen you will see a navigation box which links directly to each page of the form – simply click the link to move directly to the page you want.

You can also click 'next page' or 'previous page' on the top or bottom of each page to move forward or backward through the form.

Remember to save often so that you don’t lose any information you’ve entered – just click on ‘save progress’ at the top or bottom of each page.

4. Saving Your Draft Form 

If you wish to leave a partially completed form, press 'save and close' and log out. When you log back in and click on the 'My Submissions' link at the top of the screen, you’ll find a list of any started or submitted forms. You can reopen your draft form and start where you left off.

You can also download any application, whether draft or completed, as a PDF. Click on the 'Download' button at the bottom of the form navigation panel.

5. Submitting Your Form 

There is a ‘Review and Submit’ button at the bottom of the navigation box. You need to review your form before you can submit it i.e. you will not be able to submit your form until all required questions (marked with an *) are completed. Once reviewed you can submit your form by clicking on 'Submit' at the top of the screen or on the navigation box.

Once submitted, no further editing of your form or uploading of support material is possible.

6. Completing A Form In A Group/Team

A number of people can work on a form using the same log in details as long as only one person is working at a time. But do ensure you save as you go.

7. Spell Check

Most internet browsers (including Firefox v2.0 and above; Safari; and Google Chrome) have spell checking facilities built in – you can switch this function on or off by adjusting your browser settings.
