We are excited to introduce new features and enhancements for our upcoming release on April 10th, 2018.

Here's what to expect: 


  1. Redesigned flow to publish questionnaires to partners or vendors. Questionnaires can now be started from the Active Assessments tab by clicking Start New Assessment. From here, a user can select their partner and product (if desired).New.pngPublish.pngThen, the user can select which questionnaire they would like to publish.Questionnaire.pngNext, the user can select who is answering the questionnaire, whether it be the Partner Contact, Internal Business Unit Contact, or the user publishing the questionnaire.Contact.pngFinally, the user can select the Due Date, and optionally select a Period and write a message. Once that information is entered, the user can click Publish Assessment to publish the assessment.Publish_Flow.png
  2. Users will have a full screen experience when answering questionnaires. This will give users more space to view and answer your questionnaires.Full_Screen.pngUsers will be able to click the Orange Arrow on the top of the screen to bring down the application header. Users can also navigate to other modules by clicking on the top left icon in the application header.Full_Screen_Bar.png

  4. When answering a questionnaire, allowable characters for text answers and comments will be increased to 2,000 characters.                                                                                                      
  5. Consistent experience when reviewing items in My Assignments for all users, regardless of role. When a Questionnaire Owner or Questionnaire Admin views a questionnaire in My Assignments, they will only see the questions that were assigned to them explicitly, instead of the full questionnaire.My_Assignments_View.pngWhen submitting questions back from My Assignments, the questions will be submitted back to the owner of the questionnaire. If you are a Questionnaire Owner or Questionnaire Admin, you can submit the questions back to your partner by submitting it from Active Assessments by clicking on the Go To Active Assessments link. Note: Questionnaire Owners do not have a Submit button when answering from My Assignments because they are the owner of the questionnaire.My_Assignments_Answer.png
  6. Users can start answering an assessment without having to enter a partner or vendor contact. Once a user begins publishing an assessment, they will be able to select Me on the Contact page to begin answering the questionnaire themselves.Answer_Assessment.png
