For the R-1 first iteration only, before the reference document deadline, you will still be able to perform the following tasks after your application and other documents have already been submitted:
- Assign reference documents to your applications;
- Delete reference documents from your applications;
- Create new reference requests.
Programs will not see any activity on your application regarding reference documents prior to the deadline, whether they are assigned or not.
You can assign empty reference documents at any time, if you are still waiting for your referees to submit them. Once they are in your account, all applications that you have assigned the reference will be updated automatically.
