Major version 8.0 released for general availability

Automated reminder schedule plans

Now you no longer  need to send reminders manually and keep track of campaigns. When publishing a survey campaign, you can choose a reminder plan so the system takes care of the rest. Reminders have been moved to a complete newly designed calendar tracking interface.

There are three reminder plans to choose from. They differ in the intensity of reminders sent out to users not having completed their reviews. Reminders will only still be sent to users needing to complete surveys according to your workflow policy.

Sign in and password recovery simplified.

Invite and reminder email messages now only uses one credential tag <% ACTIVATE %>. The username and password tags are now deprecated. This provides for a better flow of login management. We’ve also added better error notifications when signing in does not work.  If you are a current customer, an automated process has cleared out the old username and password tags for you. You may have to tweak some of the formatting but all transitions proceed gracefully.

Set minimum / maximum review policies on request and nominating workflows. You can also now set rights on feedback nominations per survey campaign. Simply put, you can allow subjects to request from anyone on your list, within your database account or allow them to request feedback from external users. Naturally we’ll always keep our ‘fixed-mode’ available where you can continue to limit feedback based on your workflow policy.

Nomination modes also now allow users to correct erroneously assigned job roles.
