SurveyTrac

The SurveyTrac module allows you to send surveys to students and staff to collect information about their recent visits and Success Plans, or manually send a survey to a list of students. These surveys can contain an unlimited number of questions, be initiated by over a dozen different criteria, and you can report on responses after the fact. There are practically endless combinations of survey types and questions available to create.

SurveyTrac Configuration

To create a new survey, head over to your SurveyTrac menu (within the “Other” menu in your Navigation Bar), click the hamburger icon, then select “New Survey.” This will bring you to a survey entry form where you can start configuring basic options relating to your survey. Additional options will become available after saving.

  • Created By
The staff member who created this survey.

  • Profile
The profile that this survey is assigned to.

  • Active
Enables or disables this survey.

  • Survey Name
The name of the survey. This will also appear within emails sent to students and staff.

  • Survey Period From & To
The active period of the survey. Used for “Initiated Via” options that specify "during survey period," such as “Email after 1st visit during survey period.”

  • Initiated Via
This setting determines the send criteria for this survey, with the following options available.
  • Display during visit entry: This displays within the “Surveys” tab of a visit record, allowing you to fill out and submit the survey from the visit record itself. This survey type only appears when questions are directed to staff.
  • Email after visit: This will be sent to the student/staff after a visit takes place. Specifically after Kiosk logout, Log Listing logout, Quick & Batch Visit creation, and appointments being marked as attended (if a visit doesn't already exist).
  • Email after 1st visit during survey period: Same as above, but only after the student’s first visit during the survey period specified. Subsequent visits will not initiate this survey.
  • Email after # of visits during survey period: Similar to above, but you can choose when the survey sends based on the number of visits. E.g., send a student a survey after their 3rd visit in the center.
  • Email after 1st visit per subject during survey period: Same as "1st visit during survey period," but on a per-subject basis. E.g., the student will receive a survey for their first (and only first) visit for MAT100, then another survey for their first visit for CHEM100, and so on.
  • Email after 1st visit per consultant during survey period: Same as above, but on a per-consultant basis. E.g., the student will receive a survey for their first (and only first) visit with Dave Smith, then another survey for their first visit for Jane Doe, and so on.
  • Email after new student record: This is emailed to the student immediately after their account is created. This only applies when manually creating student accounts, imported students will not receive this survey.
  • Show at entry: This displays during the login process on a Kiosk or Log Listing. These responses will not appear in the visit record itself, as opposed to Display during visit entry.
  • Show at entry before 1st visit during survey period: Same as above, but only after the student’s first visit during the survey period specified.
  • Show at exit: This displays during the logout process on a Kiosk or Log Listing. Similar to Show at entry, these responses are not visible in visit records.
  • Show at exit after 1st visit during survey period: Same as above, but only after the student’s first visit during the survey period specified
  • Display as link on Main Menu: For each day that a user logs in, a new survey is created and will display as a link in the "Surveys/Documents" widget on their dashboard.
  • Do not auto send: This survey can be manually sent on the Student/Staff/Faculty Listing as a batch, from individual Student/Staff/Faculty profiles under the "Actions" menu, during Batch Visit creation, and Group Rosters on the schedule.
  • Link on edit student: Similar to Do not auto send, but more limited in where it appears as an option to send. This survey is only possible to send from the student listing as a batch or to individual student profiles manually.
  • Link on edit visit: This displays in a "Send Survey" prompt in each visit record under the "Surveys" tab. This allows you to initiate the visit survey email manually, as opposed to the non-email Display during visit entry option.
  • Display on document posting: Similar to Link on edit student, except this "Survey" is under a new prompt in the actions menu labelled "Survey Document" and can only be sent to students individually.
  • Display as Student Entry Form: Similar to Link on edit student, except this "survey" is under a new prompt in the actions menu labelled "Complete Survey Form" and can only be sent to students individually.

  • In-Person / Online
This allows you to only send the survey for In-Person or Online visits, or "All" to ignore the location.

  • Do not send email, just show on dashboard
This setting will only appear for surveys that are emailed to students. If this is checked, the email will not be sent, but it will still appear on the dashboard for students to access and fill out.

  • Survey Link expires after # days
Optionally have surveys expire if an answer has not been received within the specified number of days.

  • Auto resend after # days & After initial auto resend, resend every # days (emailed surveys only)
These options can be used to automatically resend unanswered surveys after a specific number of days. The first field determines when the survey will first be resent, and the second can be used to resend it again after every [number] days.

  • Recipient Email Settings (emailed surveys only)
Options relating to the emailed survey formatting. From email address and contact name, the subject line, and the body itself. The Twig tags {{Survey.Link}} and {{Survey.Name}} can be used to display a link to the survey and the survey name field respectively.

  • Link to Centers
Determines which centers this survey is assigned to.

  • Instructions and Survey Head Text
These messages will appear at the very top of the survey entry window. Head Text appears in bold at the top, typically a title for the survey. Instructions appears smaller just beneath Head Text, typically a description for the survey or basic instructions. Both fields support Twig to display information about the student, their visit, etc.

  • Confirmation Message
The confirmation message will display at the bottom of the survey after submitting responses.
