Introduction


Feedback report is the name used for creating the final report/scorecards. This are custom word and PDF document with formatted text, response from survey, computed values from survey, graphs, tables etc. Feedback report mostly contains comparative benchmarking results. Feedback Report are used by the participants to look how they performed with others or themselves from last year.

Prerequisite


  1. There should be a generated dataset linked to the feedback report.

  2. You should create a word template with control place holder and other texts. Word template must be linked to the feedback report.

Brochure Creation Process


This section will give you a brief introduction on the process that needs to be followed for the same. Below are the steps that need to be followed :

  1. Creating a custom dataset using Dataset Manager
    with all the data needed in the scorecard like scores, responses, feedback etc. We do this so that we get each company specific information companies entered.

    • For storing feedback in the system we suggest to create admin only questions which only administrators can respond, based on the responses from the company so this can be done at the end of the cycle.
  2. Secondly, we have to create a word template with all the styles, introduction and other fixed text in it. So basically this document will have everything that does not come from the Probench.

  3. Once the above template is created we add the placeholders for all the dynamic data(data that has to come from Probench) based on the fields that were added in the report.

  4. Once the template is ready we will create brochure using Create/Edit Report menu in Probench using the above created word template. Also we will be creating the necessary charts in this step.

  5. Once the charts are created we add them to the template document using placeholders so even the chart will be company/participant specific and do not have to create individual charts for each company.

  6. Once all the above steps are completed we can then generate all the feedback reports on click of a button and all the scorecards will have its own company specific data in it.

Why generate all feedback report is not generating feedback reports?


You could be creating generate all feedback report for first time.

  • The feedback report generation is dependent on the report it is mapped and the changes in the survey. So make sure the report is generated and it contains data in it.

You could have just created all feedback report and you are attempting to do it for second time:

  • Once the feedback report is generated successful and there is no change in report generation time, feedback report will not generate again. The Probench platform look at it as there is no changes made in survey or response it will not generate the feedback report again. In order to generate the feedback report again, generate the report again. The reason you may need to generate the feedback report again is because you made change in the feedback report template.

Why do I see empty list, when I view feedback reports?


One of the most common reason is dataset are not generated or the result of datasets mapped to this feedback report is empty.

Why I don’t find feedback report of a participant?


Go to the report of the feedback report. Open the csv or excel output of dataset. Check for the participant in the output. If it is not there, look for “Includes participants that match” and “Additional Filters” on the dataset.
