Choose the name you want displayed in your tabs bar by typing it into the Programs Label field. It will default to Programs, but you can enter anything you'd like.
To create a new program, click Add Program.
You'll be taken to a form that will let you build your program.
Enter the general details of your program and hit Next.
Now decide who will be eligible to participate: i.e. who can vote for/nominate/select users, and who is eligible to be voted for/nominated/selected.
The system will default to letting all users participate, which will let everyone in the company into this particular program. If you wish to have everyone participate, simply click Next.
If it's specific to a certain team or department, you can limit users to the individual users or groups you select. Click Limited Users. You can add entire groups by clicking Add Group.
You can then select your desired group(s) from your available list. Click the Group Name to highlight it, and then click OK to add it to your program. Click the X next to the group name to remove it if you make a mistake.
You can also add individual users to a program in addition to, or in place of a group. Click into the Eligible Recipient Users box and type in the name of the user you want to add to the program. As you type their name, the system will give you results for all users that fit your search. Find the correct user and click their name to add them to the program. Repeat as needed.
Once you click their name, it will appear in the Eligible Recipient Users box. Click the X next to their name to remove them.
These same processes can be duplicated for the Voting - Users who can select eligible recipients section by clicking Limit Users and following the same steps.
When you've successfully added the users and groups that you want to be able to participate in your program, hit Next.
The next step is to add questions to your program. Use this feature to create surveys, get feedback, input, ideas, or anything you ask for. Click Add Question to get started.
You can choose between Multiple Choice and Short Answer questions. To add a Multiple Choice question, click the type box, and select Multiple Choice. Type your question into the Question field; this will be what your users see. Next, add the answers you want available to those participating in the program by typing them into the Answers box, and hitting Enter. When you've added all of the answers you want available for that question, hit Save.
Your question will show up in the question form.
To add a short answer question, click the type box, and select Short Answer. Type your question prompt into the Question field; this will be what your users see.
Your questions will show up in the order you add them. However, if you want to rearrange the order of your existing questions, simply drag and drop them in your preferred order. Once you've completed adding all of the questions to your program, click Finish, and your program will be activated for all of the users you selected to be part of it.
Your new program will now show up in your list of active programs.
