    We would definitely support this - at the moment, we're trying to figure out a way to automate more of what we do. For example - a system that enabled our instructors to mark attendance at the start of each event (a simple webpage that didn't require a user to be logged in, perhaps URL authentication) would be great. Then, using communication triggers, a system for getting students to submit feedback online would be amazing.

    We would support this as well. Currently, we are using a third party online survey service to host survey forms and collect delegate feedback. We are directing delegates to the site URL post-event with a communications trigger but it would be nice to collect that data within Administrate.

    I could definitely use this function.  As far as I see it, the whole purpose of using Administrate is to make the Administration as easy a possible, and this must include cutting down on manual entries/multiple stages of collecting and imputing information into the system.  This would apply to not only the Evaluation forms but also electronic sign in forms (which I think I will raise a separate trail for).

    Maybe an integration with 'Training Check' and other purpose designed evaluation software.

    If it's not feasible to implement this within Administrate, exposing the Evaluation system via the API would enable us to develop something.

    This would be an extremely useful feature, is there any news on if/when this may be implemented?

    I really would like to see this feature added. We adopted Administrate over a year ago above another similar provider who did include electronic evaluation forms, and I asked at the time if this was planned and was told yes, which was one of my reasons I did not go with the other provider. It is somewhat disappointing that more than a year on it still isn't even in the planning stages. Come on Administrate!

    I think there is potential for an integration with Survey Monkey which may do this - although having had a look at Survey Monkey it seems very expensive for anything meaningful (for example, as soon as I wanted to 'pre fill' information such as name and e-mail address via a Communication Triggers URL, the costs rocketed, I'm not sure how an integration would address this) - and this could cut down on paperwork, as well as allowing for customisable feedback forms depending on the event (i.e. different triggers send different surveys).

    We are also looking at a project to collect pre-course information (in our industry this will be next of kin details, medical information, and dietary requirements). I am currently recruiting a freelance developer who will produce a system that, when a URL is sent via Communication Triggers, delegates will be taken to a web page where they can enter their information, which then propagates via the API. We're also looking at a way to automate reminders if they fail to do this. There's a bit more to it than that, but that's the barebones. If anyone else feels this would be useful, I'm happy for you to get in touch with me with your requirements (this will be fairly basic though!) and if my developed 'widget' works for you, we can sort out a low cost financial arrangement.

    Hi, completely agree, this would be ideal for us as we're currently exploring alternative programmes.

    Is this feature implemented via an integration or will this be planned?

    We do have a survey monkey integration for evaluation forms now, though we've recently been told that SurveyMonkey will be changing the requirements for the account level the end user will be required to have, so look forward to updates on this in the near future.
