Forms are a type of survey that you can add to an engagement. When you send it to your form recipients they will be notified and can fill it out so that you can have a recorded aggregate history of form responses. Forms can be sent to anyone with an email address – not just Coaching.com users.
Form question-types consist of:
Single Choice Questions
Multiple Choice Questions
Drop Down Questions
Pro Tip: Admins can set questions to Required, which will not allow users to complete the form without answering all the required questions.
Forms can be set to confidential or can be viewed by all users within an engagement. If a form is set to confidential only the global admin can view the form responses.
Global Admins can see Confidential Forms in My Resources, Shared with Me, or Admin Resources.
Global Admins can change the user roles of their Employees to give them Admin permissions to access Form results.
Location Admins can add Confidential Forms to Engagement Programs if a Global Admin places the form in Admin Resources from the Resources page.
Location Admins can view Public Forms if a Global Admin places the Form in Admin Resources from the Resources page.
Creating a form allows you to customize by question type and requirement. You may add any of the question types mentioned above.
From your Resources page click Add Resource.
Click Create Form and add your questions.
Admins can optionally set the privacy of the Form by clicking on the Lock Icon at the top of the Form.
When you ready to use a Form in an Engagement, add Recipients to Forms from within your Company or add anyone by email.
