    Internal Comments on submissions

    Asked by ashmetry on August 13, 2013 at 04:16 PM

    Hi

    I need to create a form to collect resumes for an open position in my company.

    My questions is this:

    1. Once applicants start filling up their forms, in there a way to go through the resumes and add my own comments as well as grade these applicants based on the responses received? Maybe meta data field or some a "Private field" that contains data not visible to the applicant but only visible to the form creator?

    2. If the same appicant fills 2 forms (each form for a different open position) is there a way to link users together across forms, based on same email or same account?.

    I am also open to other approaches to doing this if somebody knows of a better way to get the same results.

    Thanks!

    Hello ashmetry,

    (1) Once applicants start filling up their forms, in there a way to go through the resumes and add my own comments as well as grade these applicants based on the responses received?

    Yes, you can use a Hidden Box to create this and then when you edit it the answers will only be displayed to you or other staff which you specify the box for.

     

    (2) If the same appicant fills 2 forms (each form for a different open position) is there a way to link users together across forms, based on same email or same account?.

    As for this question. If I am understanding you it sounds like you wish to connect one form to another to create a sort of user search system to find 2 forms created by the same person perhaps? Please correct me if I am misunderstanding you. Though, if that is correct then the answer is unfortunately no unless you use the Submissions Control Panel to search for them based on certain criteria. However, with that said, it is only data that is form specific at the moment but to my knowledge we are slowly advancing this to improve on more abilities and features such as cross-form searching based on one type of info input recieved.

    Yes kimizee, our hidden box does still exist. 

    You can find your answer in this thread over here which I have moved your above question to so that we could answer it separately because it is a different topic.

    Please make sure you ask your new questions in a new thread next time and thank you in advance.
