About Messages Options
There are additional options for how your 360 email messages can be distributed.
- Allow subjects to send reminders to evaluators: This option creates a button in the subject’s participant portal. They will be able to remind evaluators whenever they want. Only evaluators who haven’t finished their evaluation of the subject will receive a reminder.
- Automatically send invites to new evaluators: When enabled, evaluators who are nominated by subjects will get an email as soon as they are nominated (or as soon as a manager approves the nomination, depending on your settings). This setting must be turned on before evaluators are nominated. If you turn it on late, it will not retroactively invite evaluators nominated before the setting was enabled, but it will notify new evaluators going forward.
- Consolidate evaluator invites and reminders where possible: If an evaluator is being invited to assess many subjects, or they’re being sent multiple reminders, this option tries to consolidate those messages. For example, instead of getting five reminders, the evaluator would get one. Different information that is piped in about different subjects will be separated by line breaks. The same applies for survey links, unless the option below, Include login information for external evaluators, is selected; then, one set of login information will be included instead.
Qtip: This setting will not consolidate messages sent due to the Automatically send invites to new evaluators setting. It will also not consolidate messages sent to external evaluators without logins. If Include login information for external evaluators is disabled, external evaluators will still receive multiple emails for multiple evaluations.
- Include login information for external evaluators: External evaluators can receive a direct link to their evaluations, and do not need to log in. However, if you want to consolidate their emails, or allow them to access a portal when they evaluate subjects, you can enable this setting to show them their login info. Disabling this option ignores login info piped text and only sends login info to subjects and managers – external evaluators will receive no login info and will instead get an email for each subject they’re supposed to evaluate, with a unique link in each message.
Attention: We recommend you enable this option. If this option is disabled and the recipients’ email server contains a security software that modifies hyperlinks, then your external evaluators will not be able to access the assessment, and they will not have login information to access Qualtrics.
