What is a Traveler Form?

A Traveler Form is a questionnaire that a Traveler fills out when they apply to an internal or authorized program. Traveler forms are created from General Forms (templates) and could contain a variety of custom questions and Traveler info fields. All Traveler General Forms have a Form status of either Not Started, Started, Submitted or Accepted.

A Traveler Form can be found in 2 different locations in Via Global:

  1. On the Traveler Profile under Traveler Programs
  2. On the Form dashboard

A Traveler is given access to General Forms when an Admin adds a General Form to a Traveler's profile OR an Admin updates a Traveler's application status to any of the following statuses for a term that has General Forms (templates) associated with it:

    • Nominated
    • Conditionally Approved
    • Approved
    • Committed


To access a Traveler’s form from the Traveler's Profile...

  1. Click the Traveler’s name or email from any dashboard
  2. Click Traveler Programs*
  3. Click View Details on the desired program tile
