About Instruction Messages
You can create instructional messages that display in the Participant Portal. That way you can help guide your subjects on what tasks they have to complete, and by what due date.
Create these instructions by going to the Messages tab and selecting Instruction Messages. Select the type of instruction you want to modify by selecting it from the pane to the left.
To enable the message, make sure the switch at the top-right is blue and says On.
Translating instruction messages is the same as translating an email message.
The welcome message will be displayed to anyone who is a subject (even if they are also an evaluator) when they log into their Participant Portal. It displays at the top of the home screen, like this:

You can give subjects the ability to nominate evaluators through the Participants Options.
When someone evaluates someone else, this message shows up at the top of every page of the survey. This message can act as a floating set of instructions the evaluator needs to keep in mind throughout the survey.
