Step 4—Editing and Adding Entries


Completing or updating sections
Click the edit icon (Edit) icon to access and complete or update a section (e.g., the Identification section). All mandatory fields are indicated with an *. When you have completed an entry (or “record”) within a section that allows for multiple records, a Submit? box will appear beside the entry. Check the box if you want that specific record to appear on your SSHRC CCV.

creating multiple entries in a section

In those sections that allow for the creation of multiple records, a Submit? box will appear beside each entry created. Please check the box if you want that specific record to appear on your SSHRC CCV.

Some sections limit the number of records to a maximum number (e.g., up to three records for Address).

Confirming which sections have been completed

Once all of the mandatory fields of a section have been completed, a green checkmark will appear next to the name of that section in the list of sections. Note that a green checkmark may also mean the section is not mandatory for the SSHRC CCV. If mandatory fields of a section have not been completed, a red X  will appear next to the name of the section.
