How can I locate an application I am having trouble finding?
You can search for an application using a few different methods introduced in the Approvals Team Dashboard section above. Click here to go to the Approvals Team Dashboard.
If you’ve tried all of the above and are still not locating the application, it’s possible that you’re not assigned to the application and do not have the correct permissions to view an application that you’re not assigned to. It’s also possible that the applicant may be under a slight variation of their name, or that they're not yet entered in our system.
If you’re not finding an application and you need to view it, please contact Binti Customer Support by using the chat icon (bottom right hand corner) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can help by doing an additional search through our system for the applicant to make sure they're in Binti.
If you’re not assigned to the application but you need to view it, you’ll need to request to be assigned as a worker on the application. Please ask your Supervisor or other team members that can assign applications for assistance, or email email@example.com with your supervisor CC'd.
If you’re not assigned and you do not want to be assigned but you need to view it, you can also talk to your Supervisor about requesting an update to your permissions so that you can view all applications. They’ll need to reach out to our Support team to update this.
Please have them contact Binti Customer Support by using the chat icon (bottom right hand corner) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
