'''During the Onboarding period and the various steps, if there are no reply from the applicants in a range of three weeks on the ticket, the application will be closed also if approved.'''

In the second half of 2016 we came to the edges of our possibilities to assign all new Reps to new mentors and having a quality onboarding experience. We are currently using a Webinar to make the on-boarding part easier, as well as working on Coaching materials and new coaching training to on-board new coaches. The Webinar experiment turned out to be a success, therefore this is the current standard approach for all new applications.
* With a straight-forward screening process we can quickly identify good applicants and therefore reduce the time needed for the processing of an application

=== Screening applications ===
'''Initial actions in the application:'''
* Initial check according to the [https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReMo/Application_Process/Selection_Criteria Selection Criteria]
The final decision will be communicated to the applicant according to the [https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReMo/SOPs/Mentoring/Screening#Step_2:_Assessment Screening documentation] and further steps are taken for the Webinar if accepted.
== Situation about Coaching == Currently we have a bottleneck in terms of available Coaches/Mentors. We want to assign one Coach per Rep to enable personal development and having someone to talk to about possible questions Reps might have. We have on-boarded new Coaches in November 2016, and we will continue to do so in Q1 and Q2 of 2017. This will help us to get out of this bottleneck and enable us to have a good base for personal growth of Reps. Right now, we will be assigning the Reps Council as Coach for new Reps during this experiment, until on-boarded Coaches have enough capacity to take on new Reps. At that point we will transfer the new Reps to the Coaches. We are still working on details for the Coaching training to make sure that this bottleneck can be solved and we can on-board new Coaches regularly. In this time, Reps can contact the Reps Council for any questions around the Program and Mozilla. Additionally we will encourage Reps to talk to other Reps through the Telegram group as well as Discourse. == Detailed workflow of an application == == Step 1 - Submit application == You can find all criteria regarding your Reps application on the [[ReMo/Application_Process/Selection_Criteria|Selection Criteria page]]. Please read that to make sure your application fulfills all requirements. Next fill out and submit the [https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/form.reps.mentorship MozillaReps application form]. We require all applicants to have at least [https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReMo/SOPs/Vouching one vouch] from another Rep in the application bug. We would recommend to include 3 vouches, but we value quality over quantity. Also please make sure that your [http://mozillians.org/ Mozillians] profile is vouched. Once these vouches have been verified by the Reps Council, you will be put in the queue to be screened. === Whiteboard status for applications === '''Missing Info''': Application has obviously missing information based on Application Criteria '''Pending References''': Application hasn't gotten any references yet '''Next screening round''': Planned to be screened in next application round == Step 2 - Screening == Based on the selection criteria a group of Council members will screen the pending applications regularly. Currently we are planning to run this screening every 2 weeks. This means that if you don't hear back from us within 3 weeks, we missed the application and ask you to write a mail to the [[https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReMo/Council|Reps Council]] reminding us. Qualifying applicants will be marked as "Webinar" to be included in the next round of the Webinar. Applicants that do not show a strong track record will be rejected with an appropriate explanation and their application will be closed. For future rounds of Webinars we are considering creating a dedicated group of Reps to do this screening. == Step 3 - Webinar ==
Once we have a good number of applicants, we will run a Webinar. This will teach all applicants about the Reps program, it's role, and Reps' responsibilities.

'''Webinar''': Application was screened and accepted. The applicant is now in the phase to do the Webinar steps.
== Step 4 - Orientation period ==
* Return the Mozilla Rep Agreement signed and sent by email
* Council invites Rep to create a profile on the Reps Portal
Once these steps are done, the [[ReMo/SOPs/Mentoring/Orientation]] Period starts. The Orientation Period will last 3 months, to make sure that Reps are well fitted for their responsibilities. Reps will need to create Reports on the Reps Portal to document their work. The Reps Council will decide who will proceed to being an official Rep after those 3 months according to the submitted reports.
=== Whiteboard status for applications ===
'''Agreement not signed (Webinar)''': Agreement needs to be signed by applicant and NDA invite accepted on mozillians
